Lessons from the Land of Pork Scratchings

Серия: "-"

Greg Gutfeld was a high-achieving New Yorker in therapy when he was posted to the UK to take up the position of editor of Maxim magazine. Once settled in London he had something of a cultural epiphany. Service and transport were poor and slow, food was soggy and came in tiny portions and the beer was warm. The British, he decided, viewed the world through a prism of dreariness but, despite this, they seemed to be more cheerful than his fellow countrymen, who expected to be happy on demand. After two years in the UK, Gutfeld was12 kilos heavier but a lot more content. The key to his new-found contentment lay in adopting the British attitude to life: having diminished expectations reaps its own rewards. His hilarious observations on British culture, rituals and peculiarities at all levels of society are an illuminating insight into the land of pubs and curry, where everyone is called'mate'and people with pimples and greasy hair can get on primetime TV.

Career

After graduating from UC Berkeley, he interned at "The American Spectator", as an assistant to R. Emmett Tyrrell. He then got his first full-time job as a staff writer at "Prevention" magazine. In 1995, he became a staff writer at "Men's Health".

He was promoted to editor-in-chief of "Men's Health" in 1999. In 2000, he was replaced by David Zinczenko, and became editor-in-chief of "Stuff". At "Stuff" he increased the circulation from 750,000 to 1.2 million. In 2003 he hired several little people to attend a conference of the Magazine Publishers of America on the topic of "buzz", with the instructions to be as loud and annoying as possible. The stunt did generate publicity for "Stuff", but it led to Gutfeld being fired from the magazine soon afterwards; he was then made head of "brand development" at Dennis Publishing.

He helmed Maxim Magazine in the UK from 2004 to 2006. However, Gutfeld's contract expired without renewal after losses in readership under his tenure. His final year at Maxim saw a loss of about 40,000 readers; he was replaced by Derek Harbinson.fact|date=August 2008

He was a contributor to the website "The Huffington Post" from its launch until July 2007; frequent targets of his sarcasm include his "Huffington Post" colleagues Deepak Chopra, Cenk Uygur and Arianna Huffington. He currently blogs at his own site, "The Daily Gut".

Since February 5 2007 he has been host of the Fox News late-night program "Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld". He also writes a monthly column called "From the Gut" in "The American Spectator"
