Car Chase Ends With Suicide On Live TV — SHEP SMITH DECLARES 'WE REALLY MESSED UP'
News Busters ^ | 9-28-12 | Joe Weisenthal

Posted on 09/28/2012 1:01:42 PM PDT by STARWISE

A stunning moment just happened on Fox News...

Shepard Smith was in the midst of narrating one of his famous car chases.

However it appeared to end in tragedy, as the suspect ran out of his car and shot himself in the head on the middle of a field.

After a quick break, the network cut back to Shep Smith, who was stunned and apologized for not cutting away sooner.

He explained that there was a problem with the delay.

"We really messed up." *snip*

If you must see what happened, Mediaite has posted the video.

Here is Shep's stunning apology.

I’m just glad his victim wasn’t still in the car or it could have been them that was murdered instead of the criminal removing himself from the gene pool

Will Shep’s bashing of traditional marriage advocates ever happen again under his watch?

No big deal, eh? Man shoots himself on national tv and it’s no big deal. Paddy Chayevsky’s satire “Network” has come true.

Shep Smith is a clueless, talentless, tasteless metrosexual.

The perp chose badly. Armed carjacking wasn't a good way to start his day and suicide was not a good way to end it....but AZ taxpayers just saved a ton of bucks.

You got the queen part right. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

There's a video on the web of a guy who shot himself in a police station.He had a pistol in his belt,cops didn't frisk him and they left him alone in a room for about 30 seconds.Very clear,close up,very,*very* ugly.You literally can watch the life slip out of him.

I gotta say, Shep seemed truly contrite.

No. And I don’t give a damn that it was bloodless and that the guy was a really bad guy. Network and cable news are a disgrace. Sorry, but it’s true.

Not that big a deal. I’ve seen worse on broadcast TV. Now for some real stuff that got played before the newspeople realize what was going on, try the Budd Dwyer suicide out of Pennsylvania. Saw that one myself before they stopped showing it. It’s on Youtube for the curious.

I saw it live, when Fox was streaming it around 3:30-3:40pm or so. Then, they pulled it.

That wouldn’t make sense since he was telling them to cut away.
