If you ever wanted to know the origins and philosophy of “Red Eye,” look no further:
Folks at Fox News had been reading my things on my blog, and at the Huffington Post, so they asked to meet me in London. Then I flew to NYC to meet the big wigs (it’s true, they’re actually giant wigs). It was pretty cool: they offered me a job and bottled water. If I remember – the philosophy was described thusly: the show is like a sandwich you make at three a.m. after you come home from drinking and you have only six things in the fridge. What you make is “Red Eye.” Luckily, in my fridge, I had unicorns, dismembered houseboys, Bill Schulz and Andy Levy.
In the Q&A Gutfeld also talks about he interaction (or lack thereof) he has with the other Fox News hosts and the origin of “robot theater.”
