Fox News Shep Smith and Ed Rollins pan Gingrich's Outstanding Exit Speech
May 2, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 05/02/2012 1:35:47 PM PDT by mitchell001

What I saw on TV today was an Outstanding Exit Speech from Newt Gingrich. He itemized his past successes, goals and big ideas that he will continue to push. Ideas such as US Energy Independence, Personal Social Security Accounts, Brain Science Research, Debt Reduction, Conservative Judges, etc. So what do Shepherd Smith and Ed Rollins talk about after the speech. Shep said Newt was delusional. Rollins said Newt gave one of the worst exit speeches ever. They did not comment on the specifics of any of the exciting ideas that Newt wants to continue to push. I am convinced the reporting on Fox News is tainted by Roger Ailes dislike for Newt. Objective reporting is missing over there. Any agreement or rebuttals?

Romney’s alleged “delegates” in Massachusetts BOLTED
from him last weekend.

FOX “News” was Ordered by Romney to SHUT UP about it.

Newt forced the media to listen to his whole speech before he got to the frosting. Then the frosting wasn’t there. And they hate him for that.

Real ideas, spoken without a teleprompter. He probably had one notecard.

Shep is the main reason I do not watch FOX anymore.

The degree of snarkiness was stunning. Smith and Rollins were petty and mean-spirited in the extreme. The two are of the kind who would speak ill of the dead at his funeral.

This sort of pettiness does not speak well for Fox.

Newt is a nonissue now. Look at the fact that Fox and Drudge are in the tank for Romney as a positive and take note of how Obama is being mercilessly hammered every day, especially on the Drudge Report. You couldn’t ask for a better attack dog than Drudge. It looks like we’re stuck with Romney so let those guys tear Obama to shreds and focus on getting Conservatives elected locally so they can force their agenda on Romney and the Rinos.

I can see what Rollins’ problem is: Not enough walking-around money. And Shep is just a little worm with an even smaller unit.

I saw/heard the speech and it was grand. I could not believe what Shep and Rollins said about Newt afterward. It was horrible and disgusting, protraying Newt as a crazy man who never should have run. Shep said he doubted anyone kept listening to the end of the speech.

I will never listen to Shep’s news programs again.

I’ve stopped watching Fox lately and watching movies instead but I knew Newt was going to speak today so had Fox on. I doubt CNN was as horrible as Fox reporting the speech. Newscasters are supposed to report news, not call people crazy.

I am thoroughly disgusted and angry at Fox. That’s it for me and Fox.

So, I just punched on “Night of the Living Dead” zombie movie. This will be nicer than what Shep said.

At least zombies don’t talk.

I quit watching Fox News Channel when I saw that they were (are) totally in the tank for Romney. FNC is NOT "fair and balanced" anymore and hasn't been for some time now. It's funny how liberals believe Fox is a rightwing news organization.

I haven't been able to watch that little fem anchor boy "Shep" for years.

To be charitable Shephard Smith is insipid, vain, shallow, effeminate, impertenient, tendentious, and ridiculous.

I can’t click the remote fast enough to get him off my screen.

I guess maybe Newt isn’t pro-homo enough for twinkle toes Sheppie.
I still like Fox, but I quit watching that faggot puke a long time ago.

Shep is the most biased and mean spirited host on Fox and Ed Rollins is a slimy snake. Both have always been strong detractors to Newt.
I still am amazed at the hostility to Newt. He is the most brilliant policy thinker in politics. I get tired of this whole undisciplned and idea a minute labeling of Newt. We need ideas and challenges being well articulate to get any movement on restoring our country.

Agree with you about Shep but he is is just one of the reasons I don’t watch FOX any more. Other reasons: Beckel, O’Reilly, Williams, Jackson, Rivera, Perino, and many more. Only watch Greta when Sarah is on. FOX Business is still pretty good but it’s a premium channel and if the rates are raised on it one more time, they are all gone.

Me, I'm not influenced by what talking heads tell me to do. I think for myself.

ABO is right on. The future of our nation is at stake. Newt is now a non-issue.

This was a sinking candidacy from the very beginning. Newt should have known that his personal baggage aside, his luggage would have sunk a fleet of cruise liners. He nicely played the role as spoiler-in-chief for Santorum by siphoning off enough votes to allow Romney squeaker wins in MI (3%) and in OH (under 1%) over Santorum. At the end of the day this was Hindenberg waiting to explode. Quixotic and erratic, the campaign lost its way when it was dealt a broad-based clobbering in FL where Newt lost every major demographic, and then continued to have his negatives climb sky-high and his gender gap with women expanding to becomes oceans apart. The consummate Washington insider photographed on a park bench with Nancy Pelosi for his support of cap and trade, with a $1.6m Fannie Mae albatross around his neck was consigned to making off-the-wall promises of permanent moon-based colonies within eight years and $2.50 pie-in-the-sky gas/gallon within two years. With his “southern strategy” reduced to ashes, the continuing campaign punctuated by penguin bites and bounced checks in Utah descended into parody.

Brett Baier’s panel of Steve Hayes, Mara L. and Charles Krauthammer all continued the anti-Newt Snarkiness. Especially troubling is Krauthammer’s backpedaling in his recent praise and support for Newt as a potential Romney cabinet member. It is becoming very transparent that Fox News employees are manipulated either directly or indirectly by Roger Ailes dislike for Newt.

Geert Wilders is far from a talking head. Look him up.
