Controversies section[edit]

The Controversies section is very strange. Only the Canadian military section even seems like a controversy. The "Political proxy vs. destructive force" (despite being talked about above in 2011) just seems to describe something the show said about a comment by Obama. Unless Obama directly responded to Red Eye, or other media did, how is that notable compared to the thousands of other comments the show has made? Same with the Park 51 section. So Gutfeld proposed this bar and Cordoba responded, that seems notable enough, but the rest of the section is sourced directly from the man's blog and just continues to comment without any secondary source to establish that it was any more notable than any other thing the show talked about.

Also, the section names are bizarre. Where do they come from? Ashmoo (talk) 15:07, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Use of [sic] in the quotation in the lead?[edit]

As has been pointed out by 14.202.19.39 (talk), the quotation in the lead—

You almost feel like you're going out and not going out. It's like being at a bar with your friends and hearing all their opinions—while laying in bed eating Snackwell cookies.[1]

—incorrectly uses lay instead of lie. The IP user believes this mistake needs to be highlighted with [sic]. I disagree. Per the Manual of Style, [sic] is used "to show that the error was not made by Wikipedia," but it's doubtful anyone would think this was introduced by us: it's a wording mistake, not a spelling mistake. More importantly—and why I'm bothering to bring it up—it's needlessly derisive; it clutters our lead; and it's even more tedious than this comment. Thoughts? —  Rebbing  talk  01:36, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
