Shep Smith Belongs On CNN
FOX News

Posted on 04/14/2006 12:29:31 PM PDT by davidtalker

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 stopped watching the ninny after his performance during Katrina.

I still cannot understand his hysteria. Apparently, the silly boy thought he was in a docudrama with Meryl Streep and going for Oscar for The Most Hysterical Broadcast Devoid of Fact rather than merely reporting.

Back when the Senate inquisition was concentrating on the New Orleans levee breaches, John Gibson made a wise crack about how Michael Chertoff would have known about the levee breaches if only he had watched Shep. I watched Fox and the Weather Channel and didn't notice either one reporting levee breaches until the next day, so I almost threw my remote at John's picture. I think the problem is that most anchors are just lazy and accept the liberal propaganda because it is easy to do.

If he were a real dog (canis familiaris), he could be very enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately, he's not.

LOL...I DO watch it also..but every week I wonder why Fox won't put at least one "real" conservative on there.

LOL! Nothing wrong with Cal Thomas. Although I have disagreed with some of the things he's said, but for the most part, I like him. I kinda miss his Saturday night show. Neil Gabler is a left-winged horse's a$$. LOL

No need to apologize for anything.

You made a very good point about the media's unfair attack on Cheney and Bush using a phony issue, so I added some facts to back up your statement.

There are liberal journalists lurking at this site, so they might learn a couple of things about how unfair they are to the President and Vice President. Your statement should be repeated:

I think the the closest Bush or Cheney have ever come to "linking" Saddam and 9/11...was when Cheney was saying that that sort of terrorism is in play in Saddam's Iraq as well as with Bin Ladin..

I may be wrong, but I don't think either have directly linked them...just like they have NEVER said that Iraq was an "IMMINENT THREAT"...which is another false statement the left keeps perpetuating.

Well, there certainly isn't any chance that anyone will think that FNC is too conservative on the weekends! All three of the weekend anchors on Fox & Friends are libs. You've got big-time lib Julian Phillips, pro-gay, pro-Hollywood agenda supporter Kiran Chetry and the just as liberal Alisyn Camerota. Fox has absolutely ruined the weekend show with these nitwits. Julian keeps boasting of his Christianity, then goes on and on about his Mercedes and other material goodies, while Kiran and Alisyn confirm for us on a consistent basis that their morals are in the toilet. If Fox could add Shep to the weekend crew they just may cause CNN to shut down on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

I stopped watching Shep's shows a long time ago, especially after his repugnant bias during the Terri Schiavo case. He thinks that he knows it all. A very arrogant man.

Hey Txsleuth,
Smith put on a good show in NOLA for the anarchists. Shep was sooo scared some Bros might kick his liberal whiney cracker ass to sleep.

P.S. Include whoreraldo also in this scared liberal NOLA incident.

Smith needs a new career with either the BBC or Al Jereeza.

God Bless America,
NSNR

Shep Smith "thinks" he was a star during Katrina. His reporting at that time just showed how hysterical he got during a difficult time.

His "performance" today was disgraceful. But, Gen. McInenerny (sp?) gave it right back to ole Shep and he did it with dignity.

You gotta admit his interview with the guy walkin' his dog was pretty funny.

Shep: Why are you walkin your dog?

-Long pause-

Guy walkin his dog: None of your f***in' bidness!

Shep: WHOA! There ya go, this is live international TV folks!



Of course the expletive wasn't bleeped out, as it was live TV.

I agree with you..but with Geraldo, one expects that because he has always been over dramatic, plus that was his type of show...

I thought that Shep Smith's shows were supposed to be about the news...not HIM making himself the news...LOL

Have you ever watched Geraldo's new show on the network Fox stations? I ask, because I have not, not even once.

LOL! I didn't know about that. Good on Shep.
I don't pay attention to him and rarely watch his show.
Too fluffy and casual for my liking.

I have heard that he's tall and that he chain smokes cigs.

John Gibson has on retired General Edwards...

Gibson's first question: "There are a LOT of retired Generals that are blasting Rumsfeld, aren't there?"

Edwards starts by talking about how poorly Shinseki was treated by the "civilian leadership"...

Okay, now he is complaining about Rummy's job...great.

On my satellite dish, it comes on at either 4:00pm, 11:00pm, or 4:00am, depending on the FOX affiliate. I haven't seen it. I got better things to do with my time:

1. Watch Brit

2. FReep

3. Sleep

ROTFLMAO

Except on Monday, I add "24"...and I have to admit to American Idol on Tuesday and Wednesday...

Have you ever watched Paul Gigot's news show on Fox on Saturday??

If not, you need to try it---it is VERY good, I like it a lot better than Cal Thomas' old show...

TxS,
I do not watch Geraldo any longer, after the NOLA liberal cry-fest.

Smith is news, all about one (SSMFL).

"OR" needs to kick that liberal human waste to the curb for propensity.

Always,

Oh yeah, I like Paul Gigot's show. I admit I used to watch it on CNBC. I'm glad FNC snapped it up, and turned that leftist curmudgeon Louis Rukeyser's show into a conservative roundtable.

I seldom watch any TV but one time he was on and I happened to catch a few minutes of his show. There was a woman standing next to him (he was sitting at a desk) doing some sort of segment. When she was done she told the camera to pan under the desk where Smith was sitting. Shorts and tennis shows under the desk, jacket, white shirt and power tie above the desk.

I laughed my butt off.

Likely the woman was Jane Skinner. They do a Skinnerville routine. Sometimes they talk about they cookies she bakes and brings to him.

They also rerun Cavuto and Hannity and Dumb but no Gibson. Next to Hannity, Gibson seems to be the most Conservative of the bunch.

That was her. Now that I think back on it, Smith started it by having the camera pan down onto the slippers she was wearing. I was impressed by the obvious way those two seemed to enjoy working together and how laid back the whole thing was.

I can't imagine any of that happening on network news.

I totally agree and thanks for posting this! Some of us have been fed up with Shep for months. He's turned into a leftwingdramaqueen. Wouldn't be so bad, except his show at 6/7 is supposed to be news. He makes sure to get his snide little remarks against the republicans in every chance he gets. I used to think he was ok, but during and after Katrina, he proved he's just a whiner.

Right. To borrow Katie's tired phrase "some say" he uses Jane Skinner to make himself 'appear' to be flirting with a woman.

I really don't give a rip about Shep's personal life. He presents the news casually but it irks me when he goes Geraldo dramatic.
