Shep Smith Unleashes On Judge Napolitano After He Blames Gov. For BP Spill
Mediaite.com ^ | Glynnis MacNicol

Posted on 06/24/2010 2:34:47 PM PDT by OldDeckHand

Want to get a sense of how a Shep Smith, Tony Hayward interview might go down? Today’s heated exchange between Shep and Andrew Napolitano offered a small preview.

The blow-up between the two came during a discussion over today’s WSJ report that BP had based its spill plans on out-dated government models. Napolitano essentially made the argument that this news was merely further proof the government is to blame for the spill (and you know, he does have a point), which did not go over well with Shep…to put it mildly.

"I’m getting kind of grossed out, Judge….and now you’re going to turn around and blame the government for these bumbling fumbling crazy people?

How long do you think until Shep and Lindsey Graham start dating? Do you think they're dating already? Who's the man in that relationship?

uch. To his credit Napolitano held his own. “I am not standing up for BP…I am standing for the rule of law,” said Napolitano before making the rather tenuous argument that the oil companies should decide where to drill because they are the ones losing the money.

I saw that. I also heard him say it was politicized just like Katrina. He then said he was in New Orleans, so he did not know it was poiticized until he returned home.

Someone needs to remind the drama queen that he was helping politicize Katrina with his “Oh the humanity” broadcasts..

Never had a high opinion of Shep since his Columbine coverage. He has a tendency to go over-the-top. Look back at his hyperventilating reporting during Katrina. Just another pretty face reading a teleprompter. Which, by the way, he has difficulty with.

I saw Smith talking about General McChrystal the other day, and he was practically hysterical. He is far and away the biggest pansy at Fox News.

'Napolitano before making the rather tenuous argument that the oil companies should decide where to drill because they are the ones losing the money."

After watching it, I thought that Napalitano made some insightful and thought provoking comments. He's absolutely right about the insurance comments, and the remark about the federal government "inspecting" or authorizing BP to drill a certain place or a certain way, with absolutely no subject-matter expertise at all.

Even Obama acknowledged that the fedgov had no earthly idea how to stop it and all the industry expertise was with BP. If that's true - as I assert it is - how is the fedgov supposed to effectively "oversee" it?

Why, what a quaint, old-fashioned notion! Does anyone pay attention to that any more?

There are two parts to the oil spill, the blow out is the responsibility of BP and the oil slick which is the responsibility of the government. It looks like the slow response of the government may be blamed on their own bumbling data. Rather than fund studies of condom usage in Tajikistan, they should have studied the flow of oil through a mile of water.

Shep was really incensed which was apparent when he started tapping his foot.

He gets a thrill up his leg every time he watches Chris Matthews.

I met Shep Smith about 13 years ago in Cape Cod while he was interviewing tourists regarding a massive traffic jam that crippled the flow of people to and from Martha’s Vineyard. He and his cameraman approached me for an interview, and as soon as I began conversing with Smith I got the creepy feeling that he wears a dress to his night job.

I’ve had disturbing glimpses of how Shep Smith ticks before, so this is not surprising. he is young, and obviously FEDucated. I don’t know that the government was responsible for the BP oil spill, but it is very fishy (no pun intended) why they will not allow the states to protect their own shores and industries. The government is certainly responsible for not or permitting foreign skim ships available to syphon the oil into tanks. Just whose agenda does all this benefit I ask you?

He (Cooper) also lives with his lover and were thinking of adopting a baby from Haiti while Cooper was covering the earthquakes.

I think I would rather keep Shep. At least, he keeps his mouth shut about his personal life.

Let the Oil companies work to stop it but the Feds should be marshalling all means and forces to do the clean up - booms, skimmers, sand barriers, etc., from every soorce available.
