Fox News launched a new show Monday hosted by Greg Gutfeld. The network is hoping that Gutfeld will bring a different twist to a late-night scene bogged down by agenda driven left-leaning hosts who seemingly feed off one another. 

The host sat down with Outkick to discuss his new opportunity, the cancel culture, and what viewers should expect from his new show.

“I’m excited about the one-on-ones,” Gutfeld said. “We are going to get people that are focused on a central, specific topic. There are so many interesting people in the podcast world that I’d like to bring on. I’d love to, actually. What I’m not interested in is bringing in some actor to talk about his new movie – that bores me.”

Gutfeld said that he wants to have “real” conversations with guests that spark intrigue and that people can relate to.

“I want to bring on people who are not on other shows,” he said. “Not the ones making the rounds. I’m going to bring on guests who take risks. We have more slots to take risks now. And we will.” 

The network has been planning the launch of Gutfeld’s show for quite a while. He said he was first approached by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott who promised him that the show was going to happen. 

“That was the first stage,” said Gutfeld. “I heard about it, talked about it, then waited,” he said. “I had no idea when or if it actually would happen. In reality, I wasn’t sure it was going to happen, but Suzanne said she was pushing for it.” 

Gutfeld said he will use his platform to push back against the cancel culture and not run from it.

“I will say this, everyone has the potential of being canceled,” he said. “I do, you do, we all do. Cancel culture is not about the person getting cancelled – it’s about the type of person doing the canceling. It’s a very small, mobile group of people. You could probably count them, in the United States, 1,000 total, I’d say. But to corporations, they feel much bigger, have much more impact.”

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN in October; now, over a month later, the cable news channel is asking a judge in Florida to toss the case (h/t The Hill).

Trump filed the lawsuit against CNN because he accuses the network of defaming his character during the 2020 Presidential Election. Trump’s attorneys argued CNN “has sought to use its massive influence — purportedly as a ‘trusted’ news source.”

Additionally, Trump’s lawyer says that CNN attempted “to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for ‘[getting] Trump out’ in the 2020 presidential election.”

CNN lawyers have pushed back against Trump’s claims saying that the former president “seeks to silence any criticism of Plaintiff’s debunked claim that the 2020 presidential election was ‘stolen.’”

“Any alleged association resulting therefrom are also ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ and ‘pure opinion’ under well-established principles of defamation law,” CNN’s lawyers added.

Investor Cautions Over Possible Fox-News Corp. Merger

Irenic Capital, which owns about 2 percent of News Corp., has taken issue with its potential merger between Fox and News Corp.

Rumors have swirled over Fox and News Corp. possibly merging into one entity, but Irenic Capital, which owns about 2% of News Corp., has taken issue with its potential merger.

A merger would produce a more complicated company and turn off investors rather than increase the company’s lagging stock price, Irenic Capital stated in a letter to the News Corp. board.

“And even if such synergies do exist today, they would principally benefit Fox and reside in the News Media segment of News Corp,” Irenic Capital said (h/t Deadline). “For example, Fox Business may benefit from greater integration with The Wall Street Journal and some of Dow Jones’ other properties, but it is highly debatable whether the benefits from such an association flow both ways.

“Combining News Corp with Fox will result in a combined company that is obviously more complex than both companies left separate.” 

Irenic believes a unification would aid Fox far better than News Corp. and cautioned that the board has a fiduciary responsibility to investigate all possible routes to develop value beyond the one suggested by its primary shareholder.

Fox News held its annual All-American Tree Lighting at FOX Square in New York, New York Monday during “The Five.” The event was hosted by Greg Gutfeld, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Dana Perino, Jessica Tarlov and Jesse Watters

In a release, the network said it partnered with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to host a toy drive benefiting New York City’s youth. The network also honored first responders by selecting representatives of the FDNY and NYPD to light this year’s tree.

Guests included FOX News personalities and their families along with first responders from the NYPD and FDNY, including members of NYPD Precinct 32, who lost Wilbert Mora and Jason Rivera this year, and members of EMS Station 49, who lost EMS captain Alison Russo earlier this year.

FOX’s All-American Christmas tree stands at 50 feet tall and is adorned by 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star topper that is over six feet tall and more than four miles of cord wrapped throughout.  Made in America, the tree features a patriotic theme of red, white, and blue decorations.

“After a busy year in America, it’s nice to, let’s just take a step back and celebrate traditions like this and remember how important it is to come together and focus on what truly matters,” said co-host Dana Perino. “This tree is not just for us to enjoy. We want you watching at home to be able to come here and make Christmas memories with your family and friends and of course, your pets, too, of course, as you can imagine.”
