Hot Air ^ | 4:03 pm on March 18, 2009 | Allahpundit

Posted on 03/19/2009 12:45:48 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

A fiery palate cleanser from this afternoon’s Studio B. Note the ringing populist note on which it ends. Good enough for Glenn Beck, good enough for Shep!

"Whoaaaaah...that headline congers up the rawest images imaginable!"

Not even close, if it said "Shep Smith goes bareback on Barney Frank, Congress over AIG bonuses" then that would a mental image that you couldn't shake.

everyone needs to wise up, it is not AIG. It is the Democrat Congress and the Administration working in tandem who are taking a bad situation and steadily making it worse.

We are used to Congress lying, that's their strong suit, but the Administration, since taking office have been lying to us, have been arrogant and devious. I have absolutely no trust in them in the least!

So somebody finally got around to passing Shep a sheet of paper with some of the facts about this mess on it.

Kinda reminds me of what happens when the string on a Chatty Kathy doll gets pulled ... he just reads what ever is put in front of him, he's got no center of his own.

Nice to see the coming of age of Shep Smith.

His ratings are excellent and after watching his show these past few days I see a certain new gravitas.

Well done!

Do Glenn Beck’s ratings have Shep worried he’ll lose his 7:00 EST time slot?

Reminds me of Cramer’s outrage after Santelli scored with his rant.

It is dawning on Shepard Smith and other liberal news media personalities that Obama’s crazy experiments will doom the for-profit news industry with the rest of the economy. On a personal level Smith's annual $8 million at year at FOX would be reduced to $720,000 by a 90 percent tax rate.

Is Shepard Smith really liberal? I dont watch him but it seems he’s all over the place. I mean Obama promised the taxes on him.

Slowly all the wrong things coming out of the Zero administration and Pelosi/Reid controlled House will surface.
Will sufficient numbers of voters wise up for the 2010 elections, as well as the 2012. That yet remains to be seen, obviously. But I continue to harp on the fact, the American voter tends toward forgetfulness. And a given number either idiots are close to it.

[Is Shepard Smith really liberal?]

In my opinion he has been left of center when he voices his opinion and in his selection of daily news stories for his program.
