It seems that some Fox News commentators won't be setting their DVRs when HBO's The Newsroom launches its second season later this summer.

The Five host Greg Gutfield slammed Aaron Sorkin's series in a segment Friday, calling it a "left-wing loon bin" and taking issue with the show's coverage of political subjects like Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party (as indicated by the recently-released Season 2 trailer).

"Hollywood gets everything wrong again. If Newsroom covered Roman Polanski's crimes, they'd change the 13-year-old girl to 13-year-old scotch," Gutfield says. "It's a liberal fantasy."

Gutfield maintains there are "no sympathetic Conservative characters on TV" and speculates that the show will eventually recast figures like serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and accused Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro as mere eccentrics.
