Fox News late-night host Greg Gutfeld accused the mainstream media of creating conflict to drive ratings and keep viewers hooked. 

In a scathing monologue Wednesday, Gutfeld said media outlets take tragedies like mass shootings and drag them out for weeks,, which creates copycat shootings.  

“They can take a very confusing veteran’s bill and turn it into a fight between people who love veterans and people who want them to die,” Gutfeld said via Fox News Digital.

Gutfeld cited a survey from the University of Pennsylvania that revealed that cable news is more polarizing now than in the last ten years. 

“So, this polarization in the media, the researchers claim that it really exploded after: A) the election of Donald Trump, B) the election of Donald Trump, C) all of the above, D) eggs? Apparently, you know the answer.” 

“Now, let’s be clear, when they say networks split from one another after the election, that’s B.S. We were far from being on the same page; prior to Trump, they always presented a uniformly left-wing opinion, no matter what we did,” added Gutfeld.

CNN contributor Ana Navarro joined Don Lemon on Wednesday’s edition of “Don Lemon Tonight,” where she speculated why voters protected abortion rights in Kansas. 

Lemon discussed that vote with Navarro, wanting to pinpoint why a state that leans on the conservative side opted to protect rather than stringent abortion bans.

“Because Republicans like their rights, too,” Navarro said, per Mediaite. “Because Republicans have young girls, young daughters who get pregnant, too. Because Republicans have mistresses.”

“Because this is not an issue that is one side or the other. And because this is an issue where people have had rights for 50 years, and taking out a right is one of the most difficult things you can do after people have got used to that right.”

“The View” co-host emphasized that Kansas has not voted for a Democrat “in all of our lifetime.” Lemon pushed back, saying Republicans tend to oppose abortions. Still, Navarro hit back at the CNN host, pointing out the cheating some politicians on the right commit. 

“There are there are congresspeople right now, your — Republican U.S. congresspeople, people who were pro, anti-abortion, who it was revealed had sent their girlfriends to have abortions,” Navarro said. “There are many, many people who are incredibly double-faced and hypocritical when it comes to this.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former late-night host Jon Stewart find themselves in a war of words. On Thursday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host took jabs at the comedian. 

Stewart made his rounds on news media outlets to discuss the PACT Act, which Republicans held up in the Senate at the time. The bill is something the comedian is emotional about, as the comedian attempts to help veterans affected by burn pits while in service. 

Nonetheless, Carlson took shots at Stewart for his height, saying what had happened to the former late-night host all these years. 

“That’s Jon Stewart?” Carlson asked. “The famous Jon Stewart looks like a homeless mental patient. He’s shrieking and disheveled, and very short. Really short. Too short to date. Was he always that short? What happened? Where’s he been the last seven years?”

It didn’t take long for the former “Daily Show” host to respond as he took to Twitter to respond to the remarks made by Carlson in a joking tone. 

“Friends. Tonite I am sad,” Stewart tweeted. “@TuckerCarlson believes me too short to date…and yet somehow, miraculously, I remain tall enough to not know what Victor Orban’s a– tastes like! Is it goulash Tucky? Seems like it would be goulash.”

The rift between the two news media members dates back to 2004 when the comedian appeared on CNN’s Crossfire and poked fun at Carlson for wearing a bow tie during the tense exchange.
