Russell Brand Responds to the ‘Fox News Furious Five’: You’re Spewing ‘Venom’

Greg Gutfeld and the rest of Fox’s The Five went after Russell Brand this week for his political commentary, and, of course, Brand responded yesterday to “the Fox News furious five” by calling them just a cog in a very dangerous machine run by Rupert Murdoch that’s spewing “venom” and fighting to “prevent the truth from reaching” their viewers.

At this point, the Brand-Fox fight has to be wearing thin, but both sides have just kept going. Brand called Fox a “corrupt propagandist organization” and Gutfeld in particular a “human vitriol propeller.” He charged that every time Fox responds to something he said, they deliberately take him out of context because they don’t want to engage his real argument.

He even burst out laughing after playing a clip of the Five hosts taking some personal shots at his career and personal life. Eric Bolling surmised Brand must be angry at both Fox and capitalism, and Brand explained he is, “because these institutions are contributing to the deterioration of our planet.”
