In his opening monologue on FOX’s The Five, Greg Gutfeld opined that “The media is rigged, but it was rigged for Trump all damn year. He got more free media than the weather… If it wasn’t for the media who fell over Trump every time he sneezed we would have a different candidate.”
Tell us what you think of Gutfeld’s take in the comments — sign up to be a CBC Insider HERE.
He was either paid off by Cling-to- n(othing), threatened to join the bodycount or he was asleep for the past year. Wakey, wakey

I doubt many Americans even know who Greg Gutfeld is, let alone care what he says, does, or thinks.

Greg, BULL,BULL AND MORE BULL. If that was the result it was much to the chagrin of the Media!!!!!That was not their intention and you know it!!!!! Problem is they thought it would bring him down But it backfired on you bunch of halfassed journalist . You are all so,biased you look like a woman with her hair on fire AND NO WATER IN SITE!!!!!!!!!
October 26, 2016,7:06 pm
NO I do not think that Trump should accept the results until everything has been counted and they can say that the deceased names have been pulled. I have already seen things that have supposedly happened in Columbus, Oh., since then I was told that it didn’t really happen but we will see.If any areas in Franklin Co. votes all Democratic we will know that it was the truth.

If you consider dishonest attacks and mocking to be free media.

Fox News isn’t all bad! Sean Hannity and others are for Trump/Pence and the Judge. There’s a few that would be jerks and vote for Hillary, The Radical Liberal Dems and a few reps are misinformed
October 22, 2016,7:01 pm
I don’t think Trump should accept the election results unless he wins. The democrats stole it for Kennedy in 1960, they voted dead people in Chicago. I think the republicans stole the election from Gore in FL.

Greg Guttfeld try’s to be intellectually humorous , acts more like anally incompetence , probably never studied American history except in the sixth grade !!!
Fox is loosing it in the ratings I haven’t watched Fox News since August 2015 when the 3 debate commentators jumped Donald !!!
So IAM very cautious about Fox News especially with their BS Sex capades half of their reporters aren’t republicans mostly Socialist’s living in Manhattan !!!
October 22, 2016,3:08 pm
SAVE AMERICA!! VOTE FOR TRUMP AND PENCE!!
October 22, 2016,2:36 pm
Of course they gave him air time, it was good for ratings. But most of what they said was negative about him, or at least the media thought it was negative. Although every time they said he was tearing down the Republican Party, that just made most of his supporters more enthusiast about him. Now, they will spread lies and half-truths if they think it will help Mrs. Clinton (I use that instead of her first name, because if it wasn’t for Bill, she would be nowhere).
October 22, 2016,2:33 pm
Gutfeld is a damn idiot. He is a Liberal and a jackass
October 22, 2016,2:00 pm
Hardly. Almost everything the media showed or said was an attempt to discredit him.
October 22, 2016,1:08 pm
Greg Gutfeld has had to much of Hilary,s coolade. He is one person I dont pay. Attention to.I watch the five everyday.
October 20, 2016,4:51 pm
I think Gutfeld needs his head examined.
October 19, 2016,6:05 pm
Right on Greg! Trump got free media exposure from the primaries up to the conventions. Once the silly season got going, the media dumped him like a hot potato. He didn’t get the memo that any candidate with an ‘R’ after their name is going to be pilloried by the LSM. And he’s surprised WHY???? Talk about clueless!
“EVERYONE SUCKS! 2016” Yup, we’re screwed.
October 19, 2016,9:09 am
Oh really? it is the other way around. the media does not like Trump. They want Hitlery to win. Scumbags!!!
October 18, 2016,11:48 pm
“Amen to that! Go Greg! Douglas has an interesting take, but I think it’s much simpler than that. Cruz is boring, same old same old. Trump sells! THAT is what the mainstream media is all about, not politics, not conspiracies.”
Edwin, whoever you are, you are such a tool. That is ridiculous for so many reasons. Cruz is not boring, nor was he the same old moderate GOPer. You don’t have to be flamboyant to be interesting. Yes, Trump got coverage because he was different in his style than your typical candidate as I said before, but if a Democrat has been like that, he or she would have gotten the coverage instead and it would have been far more positive. See, it didn’t detract from the MSM’s political agenda to focus on Trump during the primaries. It caused no damage to the libs. They could have their cake and eat it too. But when it comes to the bottom line and when push comes to shove, the mainstream media is nothing more than a de facto arm of the Dems, whether it sells or not. If it’s not about politics, why is boring, almost invisible Hillary getting all the favorable attention now? Why did Hillary get all the attention and positive press against Bernie, who while a communist dirtbag was a far less bland candidate? And how anyone can say the MSM is not about politics when we have a MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE going back years of libs dominating the media and colluding with the Democratic party? With all due respect, you are either woefully ignorant or woefully blind. The MSM cares more about ideology than anything else, whether it loses them money and ratings or not.
“Unless, of course, some gasbag with bad hair”
Oh, real mature, name calling and mocking Trump’s hair. And oh so original, too. The only gasbags are you and Hillary.
“is making a fool of himself”
According to who? Lib hypocrites and lying tools like you?
“accusing everybody and his brother of conspiring against him.”
That’s not what he is doing, he is pointing out those that are truly conspiring against him. What about Hillary? She does nothing but rant about the “vast right wing conspiracy” and also now blames everything bad that happens to her on the Russians.
“Just what we need in the White House, a paranoid egomaniac.”
That’s rich, considering that your beloved Obama is the most think skinned paranoid egomaniac ever in the WH. And Hillary is no better. Trump is not the one who claimed he could control the weather, for one thing. You confuse Trump having confidence with egomania, like most Progs you can’t tell the difference.
“No wonder Putin wants him elected – POTUS as the foil of every comedian in the world’s jokes!”
We already had that POTUS, his name was Obama. As for Hillary, hah, a frumpy, coughing, mentally incompetent, absentminded, grossly current twit won’t also be the laughing stock of the world? Keep dreaming, pal.

I hope the American who are democrats understand that there party is corrupt and if they vote for their party they will be responsible for the downfall of America and the future of their children and grand kids. I could not live with helping to turn our country to communism literally slavery. all the amendments will be removed freedom of speech guns the internet was just taken control of by our government two weeks ago and our President stands up and says Trump is whining like a child. Mr Trump is an American citizen who has the right to freedom of speech at least for now. The president of our country should not have gotten involved with this election he is using guilt and his clout to get what he wants not what the American people want it shows just how little respect he has for this country when he thinks we are all stupid and can not make up our own minds. Disgraceful how we have all been treated by our own president who swore to serve us no control us we are not children and have minds of our own an know when we are being lied to.
October 18, 2016,10:17 pm
Please, the GOP has been divided since Goldwater, long before Trump came along, and Trump is far from a defenseless swine as he has given it back to the Lib Media as few GOP candidates in a long time have.
As for Gutfeld’s comments, show me substantive evidence that Trump was given UNDUE POSITIVE coverage during the primaries before you make that claim. Trump got a lot of press because he ran a very different campaign and didn’t talk and act like a typical politician. Not undue. And I don’t remember it being positive either, many of the most believed anti-Trump myths (he mocked a handicapped reporter, made reference to the female menstrual cycle, etc.) came at that time.
October 18, 2016,10:04 pm
Amen to that! Go Greg! Douglas has an interesting take, but I think it’s much simpler than that. Cruz is boring, same old same old. Trump sells! THAT is what the mainstream media is all about, not politics, not conspiracies. Unless, of course, some gasbag with bad hair is making a fool of himself accusing everybody and his brother of conspiring against him. Just what we need in the White House, a paranoid egomaniac. No wonder Putin wants him elected – POTUS as the foil of every comedian in the world’s jokes!
October 18, 2016,10:03 pm
Greg Gutfeld is an immature wannabe comedian who no one appreciates. He should be half the man as Trump. Must be his lack of height
October 18, 2016,9:35 pm
Greg Gutfeld is right, and he’s NOT criticizing Trump. During the primary, the democrat media gave Trump far more coverage than his share, because they thought he would be easiest for Hillary to defeat. Boy, were they wrong.
Meanwhile, during the primary, the democrat media gave Ted Cruz far less coverage than his share, because they knew he would be very difficult for Hillary to defeat.
This isn’t the first election in which, during the primary, the democrat media tried to push the republican candidate they thought would be easiest to defeat.
October 18, 2016,7:46 pm
No Greg: this whole time Obama and his gang, along with all her idiots have been working to keep govt. in Democrat control ! We are sick and tired of them & I honestly can’t think of one person I know or stranger I’ve spoken to in stores, etc. that will agree with you. Everyone is desperate to get rid of the Democrat rats ! We want our country back and rights back and all we have gone without all these years we have suffered their rule. NO MORE !!!!
October 18, 2016,7:26 pm
I say screw Greg Gutfield he’s a liberal idiot!
October 18, 2016,7:17 pm
DOES ANYONE REALLY CARE WHAT GREG GUTFIELD SAYS?
October 18, 2016,6:57 pm
Trump/Pence 4 me!
October 18, 2016,6:49 pm
Trumpwon fair and square while Hillary’s at fault. I used to like Guttfield but his sympathises w/the Radical Left is deplorable to not sound judgement on his behalf. Judge Pirro would agree as other conservatives.
October 18, 2016,6:46 pm
Too bad the new regime at Fox has their noses up Hillaries you know what.
Former ceo gone by the favorite liberal ploy of false accusation of which the liberals are most guilty of.
Only Hannity and O’Reilly are still watchable and I’m not sure about the latter.
The total corruption of this present administration is almost unbelievable.
Will Chris Wallace also show his true colors tomorrow night?
October 18, 2016,6:25 pm
I stoped watching the 5 because of him
October 18, 2016,6:25 pm
In 2008 Rush Limbaugh conducted Operation Chaos to prolong conflict and expense on the democrat primary campaign. In 2016 the Goebbels Guild MSM brilliantly executed their own version of Operation Chaos on the Republican Party. The result inflicted potentially irrecoverable division in the GOP and Trump as the presidential candidate. They are now butchering him like the unwitting defenseless swine that he is.
October 18, 2016,5:49 pm
Not rigged for the good substances. Only
For publicity only but now, they say ugly things cause the Clinton campaign says to put the foot to the metal and squash Trump!
October 18, 2016,5:48 pm
Shut your trap, Greg Gutfield! You have proven to be another moron in the pool of morons. I am so sick of even some of the Fox anchors acting like idiots and being biased against Trump for no legitimate reason. Why don’t you make phone calls for Hillary’s campaign and place her disgusting sign in your yards. You are not the least bit obscure in your idiocy or bias. Ask yourselves at the end of the day, Am I a real journalist or a joke? The problem is that quite a few Americans are now catching on to your little scam.
October 18, 2016,5:44 pm
Media is not supposed to support anyone. They are supposed to encourage debate, and report facts.
October 18, 2016,5:40 pm
He is wrong. When seemingly conservative people make statements against a figure that is the at least current favorite of conservatives, they often do it so they can continue to fit in with their “peers”.
October 18, 2016,5:39 pm
I loved the cartoon , one picture said a thousand words , one corrupt democratic candidate , said billions of lies
VOTE TRUMP / PENCE AND
VETO CLINTON NOW
October 18, 2016,5:36 pm
He has an opinion like every reporter but with 96% of media supporting Clinton and 4% for trump that pretty well explains who it was rigged for.
October 18, 2016,5:27 pm
Gutfield has proven to be a hillary-sellout just like most of the media. They are outright Evil and they don’t even try to hide it.
October 18, 2016,5:06 pm
That’s true, but they were setting him up to win the nomination only to get to this stage where they try to destroy him. They figured he was easier to destroy than the others
October 18, 2016,4:53 pm
Director Martin Scorsese recently told Agence France-Presse that he was “constantly discouraged” from making his newest film, Silence. He added that “three or four great actors” rejected casting offers because they could not “put themselves” in the position of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan. The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr. Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks.” — Mike Pence
Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
