The hosts of "The Five" took some time out of their Friday to bash HBO's "The Newsroom." The team chose to overlook the many quality-based issues they could have picked on the show for, instead focusing on the fact that its characters are pretty liberal.

After airing some footage from the upcoming season, Greg Gutfeld called it a "liberal fantasy" and wondered how creator Aaron Sorkin thought he could get away with having one of his characters note that Occupy Wall Street was a thing, or another one saying the Tea Party was bad.

Eric Bolling, the man who once accused the Muppets of brainwashing children, weighed in, saying Sorkin clearly wanted to "Hold up Occupy Communist freaks on a pedestal."

Then they bashed Occupy Wall Street for a while. Then they started talking about "Dumb and Dumber" for some reason? The gang liked that movie.
