MSNBC President: ‘We’re Nipping at Fox’s Heels’ Would Poach Shep Smith (Proof Shep is a leftist)
Tvnewser ^ | October 4, 2012 | By Alex Weprin

Posted on 10/04/2012 10:19:19 AM PDT by Mozilla

MSNBC president Phil Griffin spoke to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Marisa Guthrie about his network, and the state of the cable news competition.

Griffin was candid, saying that there is a certain Fox News personality he would love to poach:

THR: Is there an on-air personality on another network that you would like to have? Griffin: Yes. I don’t know if I should say this. [Fox News anchor] Shep Smith. I just like his way. I like everything about him.

LOL - thanks for posting this! Sounds like Phil has a crush on Shep. I can’t imagine ANYONE jumping to the joke of a network, MSNBC.

MSNBC can have Shep Smith. An arrogant, petulant child, he should fit right in.

MS-DNC wants Shep? Thanks, that confirms most of my suspicions. (Take the job, Shep!)

The morning started with plenty of day after the debate smiles and now this! I really didn't expect today would go this well.

He bends for the DNC already so it would be nothing new.

Take Boob Beckel,Geraldo Rivera, and Allen Colmes why you are at it.
Wait, I’ll make a list.

No one watches FOX News BECAUSE of Shepard Smith, they watch it in spite of him.

I think there’s a real chance Akin could still win, despite his gaffe. Missouri voters just don’t like McKasikill all that much.

Why is he still employed at Fox? I can’t watch his news program. The guy is a creepy weirdo. The SNL skit about him was right on the money.

I thought they would’ve gotten rid of him by now.

Oops, this is why FR needs an “edit” function for posts: the Akin comment was meant for ANOTHER thread.

As for this thread, to paraphrase Henny Youngman, take Shep Smith, please! I’d hate to see MSNBC “steal” him, just like B’rer Rabbit “hated” to be thrown in the Briar Patch.

Why Ailes kept Shep after he breathlessly reported that people were eating each other in the Super Dome during Katrina I’ll never know. He should have been kicked off the Fox team immediately. That was the worst coverage by anyone of any event.

Well, this FOX viewer watches around him- not for or in spite of him. I just change the channel until his program is over.

No, proof is in the pounding Shep’s ass takes on a regular basis by strange men in public bathrooms.

Oops,I’m down to watching a handful of shows. Even then its only once in a great while.
I would come back a lot more if the cleaned house.
Otherwise, Colmes was at a sickening level approaching a keith Ubergirlyman.

He has had some really funny slipups in the past. I think there are bloopers on youtube. They would like to poach him to increase the number of their viewers. Maybe they have man love for him.

Don't forget Juan Williams, who actually tried to claim Obama won the debate last night and after almost getting laughed off the stage by the other pundits for it, sitting there silently with a sour look on his face sulking for the rest of the discussion.

Same here. FNC’s ratings for that slot will go up if the poofter leaves.

MSNBC is part of NBC and part of GE...as you probably know.

If Griffin wants the old pillowbiter Shep, please pay him and get him off the Fox channel.

Take Jerry Rivers and Bob Beckel, too.

This is why I find the political Left so completely contemptible. They cannot even be honest with themselves about this. I can respect a difference of opinion, I cannot respect this habitual lying to themselves and everyone else.

Nipping at the heals of Fox when they barely get 1/2 of Fox’s daily viewership?

Oh, please, make Shep an offer he can't refuse. I'd be able to watch Fox in the mid-afternoon again.

If Shep and Anderson Cooper were younger, they’d probably hook up, but I expect they’d both turn into a couple of bickering old queens. Might make for some funny TV. For us, I mean.

Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network is an awesome alternative to Shep in the 7:00 pm hour.

Edited that a little...

Moving Shep to MSNBC would improve the quality of reporting on both networks.
