On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld said Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter wasn’t that far off when she told CNN’s “State of the Union” that entertainment media outlets and national press outlets are equally important.

Gutfeld explained that Hollywood, and by extension the Hollywood press, both want Obama re-elected.

“The reason Obama prefers Tinseltown rags to national press is simple: If Hollywood is the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, then the Hollywood press is the propaganda arm for the propaganda arm,” Gutfeld said.

“It’s just another vehicle to make a political disaster tastier to a dismayed public,” said Gutfeld “And since entertainment hacks must kiss the stars’ behind to survive they must embrace the pet causes, too. Before it was global warming, but now it’s Obama, who is bigger than the globe. It’s another Obama first — a U.S. president who finds the job too local for him. Be honest, Jasper [‘The Five’ co-host Dana Perino’s dog] knows more about politics than the Hollywood act. Look at him.”

“But the biggest joke in all of this — that the national press thinks it’s different. No guys, you’re not. You’re every bit as shallow and coopted as the typical entertainment reporter fawning over Ryan Gosling’s chiseled pecks — they are chiseled,” Gutfeld added.

“So Cutter is right, there is no difference between the news press and the entertainment press. They are two industries united by hero worship, protecting the president’s flanks when they should be challenging him. And the public ends up with a presidency that feels like another summer repeat that needs canceling because in the real world, you can’t turn turkey into a blockbuster know matter how many positive reviews you buy.”
