I watch Red Eye often.  Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's just silly.  But I'm not sure the reason for your post.  "Trolling"??

My God. How sickening.
 
What a bunch of typical slimy, Fox News idiocy.
 
I wonder how much cumulative military time that bunch of pansy-ass wienies have put in themselves, all totaled.
 
Actually, I don't wonder that at all. Because I know it's ZERO.
 
And to make fun of Canada's Leutenant General Andrew Leslie's last name, not to mention all the other snide homophobic remarks that were interspersed throughout, is truly nauseating. I mean, who is a guy named Greg GUTFELD to be making fun of anyone else's last name?????
 
"Hey GUTFELD, how'd ya get such a soft, flabby GUT?"
 
Gutfeld: "I must've gotten it from sitting in front of a TV camera spouting stupid sh*t on Fox News. Because I certainly didn't get it in the military defending the country I pretend to care so much about!!!"
 
I'll bet that Leslie guy could kick the asses of all four of those powdered, pampered Fox News pussies all at once & not even break a sweat doing it.
 
And the righties can't understand the criticisms about Fox News.....
 
Gimme a friggin break. Wacko
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yeah, I was thinking that as I watched it.
 
When that sissy-looking guy "Doug" (well, they're ALL sissy looking "guys", actually) with the wimpy facial hair came on I thought... "I'll bet ol' Thor likes this bunch of losers." Wink
 
They probably all fight over who gets to keep Monica Crowley's worn panties after the show. LOL

I haven't watched FOX in a while. In fact, I haven't watched most TV in a while. Please explain what you mean.

You realize that's not a news show, right?  Hell, Jon Stewart mocks Canada, and the Stewart show is a news show for many.
 
That said, it's pretty funny that Canada's military needs a break.  A break from what???  Apparently, the problem is that they have all sorts of military equipment, but can't get anyone to make the needed repairs.  So, they're gonna hafta take a break while they figure out what to do.  In 2011.  That's not when they're going to take the much-needed break.  That's when they're going to really start thinking about it.  LOL
 
I guess the 1,100 troops that Canada has deployed around the world , while crucial to world safety, is a major drain on Canada's economy.

I've got no problem with poking good-natured fun at Canada, it's just the way they do it.
 
I can't see mocking a guy's last name when your own name is nothing go around bragging about.
 
And having such a bunch of effete pansies making fun of any military, no matter how much in disarray, is just kinda galling.
 
That & the way they all seem to gang up on their prey with such zeal.
 
And let's not forget.... Jon Stewart is on a network called "COMEDY CENTRAL".
 
Fox is supposedly a legitimate news network.

It's a humor show on Fox, Jimbo.  It's not a news show.  It's a humor show that's broadcast at 3am. 
 
And Gutfeld often mocks his own last name.

What does Fox News need a "humor" show for anyway?
 
Do they get tired of reporting actual legitimate news stories, so they have to "take a break" from it?
 
CNN doesn't do comedy. MSNBC doesn't do comedy. And yet the right beats up on them constantly for being "lightweights", etc.
 
But their "go to" news network FOX, takes time out of it's news programming schedule to do the equivalent of some schlocky radio "morning-zoo crew" silliness, and you don't hear a peep of criticism from conservatives.
 
Let one of the other news networks try that & all you'd hear is howling about it.

What makes what that Red Eye bunch did even worse, is that just last Friday, Canada lost 4 more soldiers in Afghanistan.
 
Four Canadian soldiers sacrifice their lives & all these chuckleheads can do is mock them.
 
Mocking the country is one thing, but I thought Fox & it's neo-con viewers considered it the ultimate sin to mock military service in the war on terrorism. But I suppose they only consider it a sin to mock AMERICAN troops. Any other country's soldiers that die in the fight against terrorism are just joke fodder for the good folks at Fox. 
 
I thought this was a pretty good commentary on the show, on a website by & for military & ex-military personel called Blackfive. Note the name of the author of the piece.... LOL

I didn't see them mock the dead soldiers.  I'm guessing they didn't even know about it.  In fact, I didn't until today.  Just like you.
 
But sorry...I just can't pop a rod over this argument right now.  I've got important wagons to paint.

They always start the show with a very official-sounding "Fox News Alert", but it's usually just some odd/funny video off of Youtube.

Did you mean "pop a 'roid"?
 
Because I think "popping a rod" is something altogether different. Shocked Wink
 
At any rate.... mock a country's military & you mock their soldiers. Both the ones still living & the ones who've died in service.

Uhh Thor.   I think the point here is that FOX News has no business broadcasting a comedy show(intentionally at least! some of their shows are unintentionally hilarious though!).

The Daily Show is on the Comedy Central channel, a channel that shows comedy, even has comedy in the name.    Doesn't take a genius to figure out what Comedy Central shows.    Just like FOX News has news in the name.    They're supposed to broadcast news.   

If you think MSNBC documentaries about prison, murders and caught on tape are "comedy", I don't think I have an answer for that.

I never said they were comedy.  Just that they weren't news.  C'mon...prison gangs and bad girls behind bars isn't news; it's light entertainment.

I hate to burst your bubble, but CNN also has a comedy show on Saturday called "DL Hughley Breaks The News" plus Headline News has "Not Another Cable News Show" even  legitimate news organizations have comedy shows. It's true.

And as it said before MSNBC has prison shows, it seems just because it has news in the title doesn't necessarily mean the broadcast news all the time, times have changed.

But Fox News still acting like an ass is still not a shock to me, I mean look at what they have done in the past.

Preposterous. I don't even watch Fox News.
 
Only mentally challenged droolers watch that crapfest.
 
And at least I can actually get a boner.
