Fox News' Greg Gutfeld Has a Scathing Message for the U.S. Media in Wake of Paris Terror Attack

"What's stupid is cowering out of fear of DBM — or death by Muslim."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld ripped into the U.S. media during Thursday's episode of "The Five" over its coverage following the deadly terror attack in Paris.

Citing safety and sensitivity concerns, many outlets chose not to publish the controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that were produced by French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Gutfeld was incensed.

"What's stupid is cowering out of fear of DBM — or death by Muslim," he said during a monologue lasting more than two minutes.

"That's why saying we are all Charlie is a lie," Gutfeld continued. "We are not all Charlie, far from it. Instead of printing cartoons or challenging crazed Muslims the self-congratulatory media turns tail."

The Fox News host skewered the media for showing the carnage following the attack, but not the cartoons which exposed "their sad, pathetic insecurities."

"We took our cue from terror and now we are playing by their rules," he said. "One of the dead cartoonists ... once said, 'I prefer to die standing than live on my knees.' But if he had chosen his knees, he would have had a lot of company."
