The problem with Fox News isn’t only its crippling lack of editorial standards and journalistic integrity; it’s also that it acts like an irresistible magnet for some of the most insipid dunderheads anywhere. A good representative of this phenomenon is career twerp Greg Gutfeld, last seen claiming liberals want to use birth control to eliminate poor people, responding to criticism with atrocious gay jokes, and generally acting like an insufferable brat given far too many platforms to snivel on. And now, here is is, attacking celebrity chef Mario Batali over the latter’s decision to raise awareness of the plight of people living on food stamps by doing it himself.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell has some choice words for him:
I’m not a big fan of O’Donnell, but he’s as good as anyone when it comes to setting Fox cronies straight. (Not that it’s a particularly difficult task, mind you.)
