FNC’s Greg Gutfeld: Without Me HuffPost Would’ve Been Boring and Arianna Knew That

Either host of FNC’s’ “Red Eye” Greg Gutfeld thinks highly of himself or nothing of his former boss Arianna Huffington.

In the LAT‘s weekly feature “The Sunday Conversation” this weekend, Gutfeld discussed his three year stint blogging at HuffPost from 2005 to 2008:

You wrote for the Huffington Post in the early years, including a mini cartoon series making fun of Arianna Huffington. You essentially called her a hypocrite for not paying writers. How did you get away with that?

“I was pretty much their first blogger, because I was blogging from England and my posts showed up hours earlier than everybody else. Once I got in there, it was impossible for Arianna to get me out of there because I was fun mold. If you removed me, the HuffPo became boring and I think Arianna knew that. If I wasn’t there, the Huffington Post probably would have collapsed under its own self-seriousness.”

Here’s one of the cartoons Gutfeld did on Huffington.

Gutfeld no longer works at HuffPost and to date, it hasn’t collapsed.
