Once upon a time to the media, Jussie Smollett was an innocent victim of crazed racist Trump supporters, a hero for our times. Now, they’ve never heard of him. Par for the course for the liberal press. Use him then chuck him. Greg Gutfeld fills us in.

Gutfeld: Now, tonight’s monologue is – surprise – about the media. And get this, the angle is how stupid they are. I’m nothing if not unpredictable. But their stupidity is so rich, Joe Biden wants to tax it.
Case in point, check out this tweet from this lonely hack from the Daily Beast, who pretended a joke question I did on “The Five,” was real. It was a parody multiple choice question where I ask, “Is Joe Biden a racist with blood on his hands?” The answers: A, yes… B, of course… C, a and b… D, all of the above.
If you can’t see that it’s a joke, “The View” is looking for a new cast member – and you should audition immediately. Anyway, his idiocy snagged in another sucker – Brian Klaas, a professor, who tweets: “I’ve lived in several authoritarian regimes and this is more blatant and over-the-top than many of the state media propaganda networks in those countries.”
Way to humblebrag about living in Canada. But, he’s right. It was blatant and over-the-top – which is usually a sign that it’s a joke, dumbass. Another lefty with stage 4 cancer of the funny bone. These people couldn’t spell funny if you gave them the FU. Anyway, that guy is a columnist for “The Washington Post” – so no wonder he couldn’t tell the difference between parody and reality. When lefties spend all their time around other lefties, they don’t need to. They just agree with their own feverish fantasies, and there’s no one there to apply the brakes.
Here’s a Huffington Post headline: “Fox News’ jokey Joe Biden graphic isn’t funny at all.” “Greg Gutfeld introduced a mock survey question on “the five” that went too far.” Yeah, it went too far, says a listicle junksite that spends endless space labeling half of America bigots and murderers.
My phony quiz directly mocked their hysteria, but it flew over their heads like Dana trying to field a ground ball. But this cluelessness is not a bug in the system, it’s the system itself. For example, have you noticed how the media is handling the Jussie Smollett case? It’s getting less coverage than Brian Stelter wearing a speedo. Apparently there’s tape of Smollett doing a “dry run” of the hoax. Hell- he didn’t rehearse that much for an episode of “Empire.”
…So just to check you’re listening, I leave you with a final question…Does the media intentionally avoid big stories because it exposes their incompetence and corruption? A, yes… B, of course… C, a and b… D, all of the above. Note to the Daily Beast, that question isn’t a joke.
