'Dumb Fux & Friends' Co-Host Falsely States 'Governments Won't Let Us' Air From Studio

“Dumb Fux & Friends” co-host Steve Douchey told viewers Friday that the reason he and his colleagues were still working from home and not heeding their own calls to get “back to work” was governmental restriction — which he corrected shortly after.

“People have had it up to here. We’re sick of being closed. We’re ready to move on but — Ainsley, Brian — all of us are in really restrictive areas right now and that’s why we are not all sitting together on the same couch, or even in the same studio: Because the governments won’t let us right now,” said Douchey, who broadcasted alongside Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade from Fox News’ Manhattan studio before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

In New York, however, news media is considered an essential business, meaning “the governments” can’t direct anyone in that industry to stay home. News organizations have taken it on themselves to decide when to reopen their bureaus. Fox News leadership has been communicating with employees through the crisis and at one point hoped to have them all back in the offices by May 4, which obviously didn’t happen.

Still, some talent, like Bill Hemmer and Greg Gutfeld, chose to remain working in the Fox News studios. Just across the street from Fox News’ headquarters, Savannah Guthrie made no secret of working from NBC News’ studios when she returned to “Today” after quarantining, either.

1. Actually

Guthrie has been working from home for several weeks now. She came back for a short time, then went back to working from home. Only ones in studio are Hoda and Craig Melvin lately. I do wish Fox and friends would go back to working together again, sitting on that couch a foot away from each other. Nobody in government is stopping them from going back to the studio🙄
