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.
He's a geraldo wanabe.
Fire Shep and replace him with Laurie Dhue!!
Yep! Thats all there is.
If he were a real dog (canis familiaris), he could be very enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately, he's not.
I apologize for being terse...I try not to be..and shouldn't have with you...
I am sorry.
Thanks for the "facts" to add to my statment.
As long as he takes Geraldo with him.
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
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.
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,
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?
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.
OK - could you summarize why you believe that way? Just curious. Thanks.
And CNN is actively looking for the generals who will bash Rummy on camera.
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
Sounds like my schedule...
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...
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.
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 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.
just too full of himself
I get tired of Shep.
I can't imagine any of that happening on network news.
Actually, the segment with Skinner is the most tolerable part...quite funny sometimes.
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.
I concur with you again.
We kept women agree on most things, don't we? LOL
Sounds like you have been drinking the Sheepherd Kool-Aid.
Sheepherd also got excited when some newsbabe took his personal public parking place during the Florida recount. He called her a B***h.
I read somewhere last week that show is being taken off as of June. I remember when I read it, that is was a pretty reliable source. Hummm...I'll go looking. Keep you posted. Not that you care. :)
I also saw him do a promo for Vannity and Combs once; it seemed things were a little tense between him and Vannity.
DING! DING! DING! Yes, you have one an all expense paid trip to Studio B.
Really? FNC dropping Shep?
Vannity has nailed him several times.
You got the wrong toe-sucker - that was Dick Morris.
Then Smith and Vannity have something in common. Vannity nailed himself good with his lies about the port deal.
who would wannabe geraldo?
Are you talking about Paul Gigot's show?? Being cancelled??
Say it isn't so...but, please let me know what you find.
If true, I am going to encourage anyone who likes that show to barrage Fox with e-mails.
When I respond with an email it's always because of something I've read on FR
Although my husband would have to say the opposite...I am the frugal one in the family...and since I took over the finances years ago...we have done a LOT better..and that is why I NOW am a "kept" woman.
NOT the case here...lol.
I spend. Freely.
