Skip to comments.Shepard Smith, A Giant Embarrassment For Fox News
Posted on 11/12/2008 4:32:11 AM PST by AJAY
Shepard Smith has long been an embarrassment for those of us who look to Fox News for reliability and intelligence. He always has been very unsophisticated and shows no sign that he does any homework to keep himself minimally informed. Study after study, including from liberal sources like the Washington Post and the Pew Foundation, have demonstrated the Obama bias of the MSM. He screams preposterous at his guest who points this out. Aggressiveness like his combined with a lack of intelligence is a witchs brew.
For Shepard to know nothing about the MSM Obama bias is truly bewildering. What country does he live in? And to add insult to injury, the FNC Judge pipes up with support for this absurdity. I dont really believe the Judge believes what he said in order to prop up an over-matched Smith.
With Brit Hume, as sophisticated as any contemporary journalist around, retiring from FNC, and Smith too dense to understand his own intellectual limitations, things dont seem to be too bullish for the Fox News Channel. Its truly sad.
I always pegged Shep as a liberal. This closes the case.
Ailes needs to move Shep’s show to say 3AM, following Red Eye.
My house is a Shep Smith free zone. Most of them are pretty bad, but he is the absolute bottom of the barrel.
Great idea. Fox needs more folks like Tony Snow, not this guy.
He is a Geraldo wannabe.
Shep is just hunting for a same sex marriage. Hes no more an embarrassment than Doocey.
Its gotten to where one cant watch Fox and Friends without him walking off the the set doing something silly.
Poor Shep. Keeping his homosexuality in the closet is really causing him to become delusional.
Wasn’t Shep the first reporter to claim during Hurricane Katrina that people were eating each other?
Him and his buddies were eating each other.
Tagline says it all.
Case closed for me during Katrina aftermath.
Now the media can sit back and pat each other on the back for coming through for their team. All of your faux indignation cannot erase the millions of miles of video tape that is in every media outlet in this country. Books will be written defending both sides of this issue. Talking heads will point and counter-point it to their last breath, but the result is clear. YOU won. Without the bias of the American media and their clear determination to get their man elected this time the results may have been the same but we will never know for sure.
The media were working very hard to get Kerry elected to the point of creating false documents. When they got caught (thanks Howlin and Buckhead), I wondered if they would search their souls and straighten up or double down to prove they could chose the candidates and the winner. They doubled down.
I am still waiting for Fox to fire Cameron for his low-life sliming of Palin that wasn’t fit for a gosip page.
That's pretty sad - who would want to be Geraldo?
Shwepp is nothing but a liberal, whiney drama queen. His actions post Katrina sealed his fate with me - I turn the channel whenever he's on. What a waste of air time.
He made some rather crude comments about gun buyers yesterday - something to the effect that they are "mental" cases or words to that effect. Apparently, he believes Obambi's "pro-gun" words over his anti-gun actions.
Boy, he is stupid, and worse, unsophisticated.
But now of course, even Cable in full of people like him
and extreme cases like TingleUpTheLeg Matthews, who at this
point has shed all objectivity and wants to do all he can to make Obama successful. I said unsophisticated, and it shows with Smith: “the MSM didn’t lead, it followed” , followed a phenomonon of “the change that was happening in
the country”. WOW! the WHOLE POINT OF THE MEDIA IS THAT IT SHOULD LEAD!It should lead ONLY on the basis of its unique ability to disseminate objective information that it is set up to capture more than the workaday drones on the other
side of the TV set, who don’t have the time or resources to do “investigative reporting”. AND if the MSM “followed”, it was only because it’s become too timid and corrupted to try to threaten those “changes” its own incestuous relationship with power, LEFTWING power, HAS INSTITUTIONALIZED BY DEFAULT. But don’t fret over Smith and Napolitano, or Fox for using them.....didn’t you know FOX was fair and balanced? /sarc
Do Not Hold Your BREATH!
“during Katrina that people were eating each other?”
-—I dunno. That sounds “so Geraldo”.
Might Glen Beck be taking over his time slot?
Shep also said “they dodged a bullet”.
Does Howlin post here anymore?
Down with Shep and the clown that slimmed Palin. I guess they are still mad the people of California got to vote.
Smith is a smarmy little smartass.
He’s like The National Enquirer sprouted arms and legs and started wearing mascara.
He really should be doing a show like the old “A Current Affair” or “Extra” with the anorexic twins or the world’s fattest babies.
I’ve never been a fan of Shepard Smith. Never!
He spoke at a graduation a few years back, and had a armed guard with him.
Shepard and (Anderson) Cooper would team up nicely on the tingly leg network. Barney could be a regular along with Maddox.
OMG You MUST!!!!
I think those that didn't see it don't appreciate his delivery as that of one possessed by a devil. It's something that HAS to be seen. I'm tired of writing about it and trying to adequately describe it.
And that arrogant, clueless oaf, O'Reilly, sat there listening and never intervened till Cameron was on his last calumny. But that was only because Campaign Carl would have gone on forever without coming up for air.
Then I saw his over-the-top drama queen performance in the Katrina aftermath in New Orleans and was turned off for good.
I can't stand to watch him. If I have Fox on (which I never really do anymore) I turn it off the minute I hear his voice.
I know the feeling. I have the remote ready to turn the TV off as soon as the Brit Hume Special ends with that ending joke video. Why ruin the funny joke by having to see Shep, the bad joke? Almost every reporter on Fox News is better informed than Sunny Boy.
Oh, oh, you must post them!
No. Right now she's vacationing in Florida and hoping to watch the shuttle launch which I think is scheduled for Friday if it's not scrubbed due to weather.
When Shep comes on, FNC is turned off in my house.
I'd rather see Beck take over O'Bloviator's time slot. And no, I don't care where O'Bloviator goes.
Oh, and don’t worry about Hume retiring and possibly being replaced by someone like Smith. There is a rising star on FOX and it isn;t Shepard Smith. It’s Megyn Kelly, who is a REAL TV journalist, is gorgeous ,smart, has her head on straight, and is “twice the man” Smith is.
Tv is for football not news.
pinging myself for the pictures
“had an armed guard with him”.
-———the armed guard was his BF.
a Patty Hearst kind of deal.
FNC has donned the kneecaps in hopes of being loved by the left.
NYPost has done the same.
National Review Online too
Other than a few trustworthy sites online there is no credible source for news and information.
‘Ole Shep has a tendency to bite off more sausage than he could chew.
He feels pretty while reading the teleprompter. I think Smith and O’Reilly target “lndependents.”Doocy and Kilmer are buffoons.I wish Fox would bring back John Gibson. I am annoyed by the newsreaders hired from Hooters (that includes Shepherd Smith).
You didn’t say that......... ewww
Glenn Beck is an emotionally unstable bundle of tears.
He fawned over Al Sharpton to the point of puke.
Bring us some real men. Intelligent women, and informed on air talent.
