Fox host apologizes to Canadian troops

Comments came on the day four Canadian soldiers died in Afghanistan

Greg Gutfield, host of Fox’s Red Eye–you miss it if you happen to be asleep on weekdays at 3 a.m.–has gone and apologized for making fun of Canada’s troops. The host offended Canadian sensibilities last week when he questioned the efficacy (and, it would seem, the very manhood) of this country’s military–on a day when four Canadian soldiers died in Afghanistan. Defence Minister Peter Mackay was outraged, Gutfield said sorry, and we all went back to not watching Red Eye.
