Fox News host hounds Chris Wallace after CNN+ bombs – New York Daily News

It’s safe to say Greg Gutfeld doesn’t miss his former Fox News colleague Chris Wallace, nor is he shedding tears over the collapse of CNN+, where Wallace went to work after nearly two decades at Fox.
Gutfeld, who had a late-night talk show on the channel and also appears on popular afternoon show “The Five,” took several shots at Wallace on the latter program Thursday. One of his wisecracks compared Wallace to alternative energy resources, which he called unreliable.
“Look at CNN+, how much money they invested in wind power by hiring Chris Wallace,” Gutfeld joked.
He also said Wallace failed to buoy CNN+ much like the Black Lives Matter movement, according to Gutfeld, left Black people in a proverbial ditch.
Wallace said in late March that he made the move from Fox News to CNN+ after 18 years of service at the right-wing cable channel because working there became “unsustainable” after the 2020 election.
Fox News is in the thick of a pair of billion-dollar lawsuits over its subsequent coverage on alleged voting machine irregularities. That network operates a streaming service that has been criticized as being more unhinged than the cable channel itself.
“I just no longer felt comfortable with the programming at Fox,” Wallace said.
Wallace conceded that he moved to CNN+ early this year under circumstances that were “not ideal,” but he seemed to have high hopes for his streaming series “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” His future with CNN is unclear.
Gutfeld, who is among the Fox News pundits who’ve questioned the integrity of the free and fair 2020 election, did more talking about Wallace Thursday. After joking he hadn’t talked about celebrity sightings in a while, Gutfeld joked he just saw Wallace wandering outside of a Midtown tavern Thursday afternoon.
“I’m going to do this every segment, so get used to it!” Gutfeld warned his “The Five” colleagues.
“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters, who found himself under fire following claims he made last week that he sabotaged a colleague’s car so he could drive her home, has been away this week. Neither he nor Fox News have commented on the ensuing controversy.
Fox News boasted Tuesday that “The Five” was its most-watched show last week when the network once more dominated cable news ratings.
CNN is believed to have invested $100 million in CNN+, NBC News reports. It will be put to rest April 30.
