The Five Replace Glenn Beck (Today)

Today is the premiere of Fox News Channel’s new show “The Five.”  The roundtable talk show featuring five hosts replaces Glenn Beck as he moves to his own internet show. Of note to libertarians is the fact that among the rotating group of hosts is Andrew Napolitano of Fox Business Network’s “Freedom Watch” and libertarian-lite Greg Gutfeld, host of Fox News Channel’s late night satirical talk show “Red Eye”:

Among the people involved in “The Five:” Greg Gutfeld, who is host of an overnight talk show for Fox; Juan Williams, who is a regular on Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor;” Dana Perino, a former spokeswoman for the Bush White House; and Andrew Napolitano, the host of a libertarian talk show on the Fox Business Network.

The others named by Fox in a news release were Geraldo Rivera, Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Monica Crowley, Bob Beckel and Kimberly Guilfoyle.

“The Five” will start on July 11. For the week of July 4, Fox will repeat some of Mr. Beck’s old shows.
