Shepard Smith's assault on Conservatives
I'm sure many of my readers were tuned into Fox News this afternoon between 2:30pm-4:00PM
I was stunned at the misguided comments of Shepard Smith regarding the Holocaust Museum shooting.
Smith was attempting to make a profound correlation between the shooting suspect James Von Brunn and those who publish websites that criticize Barack Obama.
One could say that this is subjective and Smith's accusations were really directed at people who are anti-semitic or calling for assassinations. However, Smith removed any benefit of a doubt we could have afforded him when he pointed at..."

Here is some advice: Stop watching him yourself?
Well, we know which side of the plate ol’ Sheppie swings from.
Shep went a little nuts on several topics today. He is probably having a rough time with his boy friend.
There is not enough eyeshadow in the world for ol’Shep.
Yep. According to Shep, kooks like today’s shooter also keep emailing him about Obama’s birth certificate. Crazy, all of us, doncha know.
Ping for exploding head alerts.
Shephard Smith is an obnoxious, self-worshipping, snot-nosed little preppy. Oh, yeah — and a drama queen to boot.
And to think this guy was born and raised in the South. Ha! Southerner my ass.
The boy ain’t been right since New Orleans.
Aw, he’s just upset because ole miss choked again to get to the College Baseball World Series when they needed to win one of two games. Much like when he went national with his hissy fit about ole miss tennis (oo-la-la) not hosting a tourney.
I am never stunned by the misguided comments by Shep. I have known he was a goober for a long time. The only thing that surprises me is that he has enough audience for Fox to keep him around.
He needs to go back to just reading the damn news and keep his “ editorial opinions” to himself. Glad I didn’t see it.
thanks, SG. he and his eyeliner have gone beyond the pale.
Does New Orleans even count?
It isn't conservatives who don't like Jews.
9-11 truthers, Jew Haters, and people that are of questionable sexuality like Shep, tend to be Obama supporters.
Well, they were Ru Paul supporters until he dropped out :)
How he connected the anti-Semite who shot things up with conservatives who want to see a birth certificate is unbelievable. I think FOX nees to hear from all of us on this one.
I agree - yesterday he used the phrase "convert to Muslim" (instead of "convert to Islam") to describe the guy who shot those soldiers in Little Rock. I've never heard anyone phrase that quite that way.
Spoken like a true wingnut birther !
I heard Smith’s rant today. This isn’t the first time. I generally don’t watch the guy because he isn’t the brightest bulb out there. But, I wanted to follow the coverage of the shooting....and I won’t watch CNN and MSNBC.
I guess he is following the Obama playbook (don’t let a crisis to waste). Like I said, he just isn’t real smart.
“I agree - yesterday he used the phrase “convert to Muslim” (instead of “convert to Islam”) to describe the guy who shot those soldiers in Little Rock. I’ve never heard anyone phrase that quite that way.”
It’s amazing isn’t it? He must have some compromising photographs of someone in high places to still have a job on a national news network!
At -BEST - he sounds like he is INEBRIATED when he reads the news.
I saw the obnoxious display he made of himself, I have no idea why FOX gives him a show. He is a typical non-thinking, uninformed leftwing nutcake who hates conservatives and conservatism. I’m sure he made no comments similar todays when the recent Islam convert gunned down servicemen in Arkansas recently.
I watch FOX a lot and usually flip the channel as soon as his smarmy face appears, today I wasn’t fast enough and then was so stunned by his rant blaming the ‘right-wing’ terrorists for one lunatic’s assault, I had to watch long enough to be sure it was as bad as I thought it was. It was!
It would arguably be an even more justifiable to posit in the public discussions on the matter that it was Obama’s apparent willingness to throw Israel under the bus coupled with Rev Wrights comments about Jews thwarting Obama that served as just the sort of green light James Von Brunn needed to act on his hatred for Jews.
Any email addresses for his boss so we can send a response from Conservatives.
Shep was doing another Katrina today. Oh, just wait until Geraldo gets this.
Shep should be fired for inciting violence today.
His comments were unrelated to the incident and totally vile.
He said that? HOW GAAAAAY!
IBTZ, go away troll. You are a leftwing nutjob.
That b*tch is not allowed on my TV.
The drama queen strikes again.
Go away yourself !
Where did you get the idea “ conservative” should be spelled with a “K” ?
Shep must want a WH job.
Just think, Glenn Beck could move up one whole (better) time slot if Smith was dropped down to the 5 PM Eastern (too early) hour that Beck is saddled with.
This is not beyond the realm of possibility if we let Fox (or Ailes) know how we feel.
You need to be purged. You wouldn’t have any idea what a conservative is because you are a cheesy troll.
DU is your domain troll.
Fox needs to fire this fag and throw whorealdo out in the bargain. They are both disgusting. Shep’s katrina coverage made me want to puke.
Shepherd Smith has some strengths...workaholism appears to me to be one of them. But, he has no buzz about his show. It’s a take-it-or-leave-attitude so far as my friends are concerned.
Most of us don’t think he has the creativity of many in the news media. Even on Fox, it’s pretty clear that Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade are much quicker wits, and far more fun to get info from.
This shows up in the plodding pace of Smith’s shows. His producers give him fancy graphics, sets, and formats, but his style slows them down and robs them of any hook. No one is talking about how excited they are to see Smith’s show.
Fox would be far better off putting Glen Beck in that 7 PM time slot leading up to O’Reilly. I’m betting it would increase O’Reilly’s lead in audience by a million plus.
I can’t stand Shep. He is a die hard liberal - dumber than you know what. I turn the channel when he is on.
Did Shep’s boyfriend dump him or something?
Shep has his “panties” in a twist because of Rush Limbaugh’s remark about Obama’s lack of a birth certificate. (Something about God and Obama not having a birth certificate)
Rush must of HIT a raw nerve....YIPPEEEE! Keep it up Rush!!!!
Let's all just stop watching "The Fox Report" and watch CNN instead. That way when his ratings drop, Murdoch will can him. Murdoch couldn't care less about what Shep says, so long as he rakes in the cash. Murdoch apparently hates O'Reilly, but he is a moneymaker.
Shepard Smith is Fox News’ token A-hole.
You’re at the wrong website, fella. Zot!
Or Beck could go in the 7PM slot....
He gets brutal when he goes off-teleprompter.
I have heard Olbermann say that. Who else has reported this?
