Fox News host Neil Cavuto returned to Your World on Tuesday following a brief hiatus, and was greeted by a litany of vitriolic emails, which the host happily read for his viewers. But first, he kicked off the show by acknowledging that some people would have preferred his hiatus was something more permanent.
“Okay, I'm back! Now, I thought that would be good news because I missed you guys while I was away. But apparently, it wasn't always mutual,” Cavuto said. “Welcome, everybody. I'm Neil Cavuto and this is Your World, and a lot of you preferred having Your World with someone else doing the show, apparently.”
The emails, which Cavuto would later call “healthy ribbing,” attacked him from all angles.
“Damn, you're still alive?!! I kept looking in the obituaries but I knew something was up when I couldn’t find you,” the first email read, to which Cavuto replied, “Sorry to keep disappointing you.”
The next email read, “I don't know what you have on your bosses, but the only place I want to see your ugly moon face is on a milk carton!” “Moon face?” Cavuto responded. “I think they’re saying I’m fat.”
One email made Cavuto feel the need to defend himself, but not because the person who wrote it preferred his fill-ins.
“Charles Payne has class. Sandra Smith has style. The only thing you have is a bad voice and an even worse TOUPE [sic]. Yet you're still on the air,” The viewer wrote. “Is this a great country or what, Cavuto?” “Alright, for once and for all, this is not a toupee,” Cavuto responded. “It's paint.”
