Skip to comments.Shep Smith Belongs On CNN

This guy is on there now talking down the war effort. Talking down Rummy. Telling his guest (General) "this Administration wants Americans to believe Saddam was responsible for 9/11." This guy is so transparent. He's better off in "The Situation Room" with Blitzer and Cafferty. Touting the six retired Officers calling for Rummy's head. Shep is just trashing the effort. Drama Queen.
I agree, but I think Fox needs him to keep the liberals from screaming that Fox is too conservative. Even though they'd never point out that CNN or MSNBC don't have any conservatives on their networks.
I just sent him an email telling his his democrat slip is showing after his remark about Iraq and Twin Towers. I guess Shep is getting some angry emails, since he is now defening himself on the air. LOL
I only watch Fox News for Neil Cavuto, Brit Hume, and the Beltway Boys.
he just read an email from some retired airforce? guy and it said hearing him talk down on the army along with those other 6 generals makes him want to puke.
I posted on him the other day...
He was going on and on how we "KNOW" there was never any WMDS in Iraq...
BUT, never once referenced the translated documents, that have shown over and over, that Saddam had a weapons program.
He has gotten worse since he became such a "star" during the Katrina story...even though it was also one of his most emabarrassing...because the morning AFTER Katrina hit, he was standing on the balcony of his hotel room, proclaiming that Katrina "wasn't all that bad"....LOL
Just watched General McInerny tell Shep how the cow eats the cabbage, it was great. And yes, Smith belongs on CNN or maybe Al Jazera. (spelling)?
In this case, he played the devil's advocate with a military guy defending Rumsfeld.
He was extremely disrespectful toward General McInerney, who if he had been in-studio with Pretty Boy, would have been within his rights to bitch-slap him back to Mississippi!
""this Administration wants Americans to believe Saddam was responsible for 9/11.""
As, an aside, this is one area where Vice President Cheney has not been helpful to the President or the country.
hey, what's the email for his show?
i want to write one
When that self-loving creep comes on the tube, I hit the mute button.
Exactly. It's how Fox can say proudly that they're fair and balanced. CNN and MSNBC can't say that.
Yesterday he said "We all know there were no weapons of mass destructions.
That is where I sent my email.
I agree about the playing devils advocate. It's not so much what Smith says, it's the arrogant way he says it and many times he is disrespectful to the guest as he was today.
During Katrina, he never understood the concept of "triage". While standing on that overpass with other people who would live no matter what happened, he could not understand being passed-up by helicopters rescuing people in harm's way.
thanks, just sent one out saying he belongs on al jazeera not fnc or ship him to cnn lol
You can present challenges to a guest without inserting opinions. He could have touted the bona fides of the critics. He could have discussed tactical mistakes. No problem. But , when he raises his voice and claims the Administration attempted to convince Americans Saddam was responsible for 9/11, that has no relevance to the discussion at hand. Is a highly opinionated statement and shows his bias.
john gibson is a riot, I fell in love with him during the Elian Gonzales fiasco in 2000, Shep is a pukehead,wimpish sheep
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld answers a reporter's question during a news conference at the Pentagton in a Tuesday, April 11, 2006 photo. A growing number of commanders who served under Rumsfeld say he has botched the war, ignored the advice of his generals and should be replaced. (AP Photo/Dennis Cook, File)
Shep gets my blood boiling, but CNN Blitzer puts me to sleep.
I take Shep anytime. I like his Southern hotheadedness
E-mailed to Shepard.
In the Department of Defense there are:
34 - four star generals/admirals
124 - three star generals/admirals
278 - two star generals/admirals
439 - one star generals/admirals
Throw in the U.S. Coast Guard and you have 900 generals and admirals on active duty today. This is roughly the same number of generals/admirals who were on active duty in WWII when our military was 12,000,000 strong.
Given that on any given year 15-20% of those generals/admirals will retire each year it doesn't take much figuring to realize that the number of generals calling for Secretary Rumsfeld to resign is laughable.

That might be his foppish tone of voice. Don't tell anyone, but I think Shep might... play for the other team.
My favorite of Shep's around Katrina time was the night before Katrina struck when he was in the French Quarter interviewing people partying and just strolling around. He stopped two guys who were walking their dog and asked them why they were staying put and not worried about the coming storm. One of the guys answered, on live TV, "none of your f***ing business."
We agree, I cannot stand to watch "Shep". He is a dog and that is a good name for him!
I'm starting to love John's radio show more than Rush's or Sean's.
I don't know about the dead body but he was on the freeway overpass all day and pretty much went ballistic.
Hey, I got the same treatment when I questioned the wisdom of hiring Whorealdo.
Sheppy is a flaming liberal but overall not a bad guy. If Fox were as biased as ABCCBCNBCCNN, then everyone at Fox would be a flaming liberal. That is what makes Fox News great. You get both sides and you can make up your own mind based on that.
He's is definitely hotheaded a lot. :-)
I and a lot of others think you're right.
if we can get his ratings to drop about half of what it is now i'm pretty sure he will be gone gone gone...
Yep. Same here.
I really wouldn't know if he belongs there or not, since I have steadfastly refused to watch him for a couple of years now...
There are two types of people talking down the war efforts. One type is the liberal view who is against war no matter what. Then there's the 2nd type. They are sick and tired of the PC, candybars to Gitmo Prisoners and the constant giving in to the MSM.
Which is Shep?
And your just finding this out now?!?!
I new that 3 years ago before I got rid of TV altogether.
What's his email address? I would like to add my remarks as well. I'm disgusted with all these schmucks. Along with the MSM, we also have the two schmucks Leno and Letterman who have to take their nightly shots at Bush. I don't seem to recall their nightly attacks or comments about Bubba.
Add in Paul Gigot's program!
"Wasn't Shep Smith the journalist who got all excited about the dead body he found in New Orleans, and did broadcasts in front of it all day?"
I think that was Anderson Cooper, Shep's boyfriend at CNN.
