    Red Eye

    I saw 'Ombudsman' in the Red Eye on Fox News.

    What does 'Red Eye' mean?

    Many thanks.

    Many thanks.
    This program probably at an early morning time slot. (12:00am - 3:00am). People who stay awake at this time usually suffer from lack of sleep and their eyes often look tired and red.

    We call an airplane flight that leaves one city at !2:30 am and lands in another say at 6:00am a "red eye flight".

    I took the red eye flight from Vancouver to Toronto yesterday.

    The Fox organization probably chose theis name because of the time it was shown. Knowing Fox the program has probably got controversial views on many issues so the name fits there as well.

    An ombudsman is a person appointed to investigate complaints against the government.

    I doubt this is true with respect to the Fox network but perhaps the program focuses on complaints against the government. There is no context relationship between Red Eye and Ombudsman. They are just larketing terms for the Fox programs.
