Skip to comments.Shepard Smith, A Giant Embarrassment For Fox News
Posted on 11/12/2008 4:32:11 AM PST by AJAY
Shepard Smith has long been an embarrassment for those of us who look to Fox News for reliability and intelligence. He always has been very unsophisticated and shows no sign that he does any homework to keep himself minimally informed. Study after study, including from liberal sources like the Washington Post and the Pew Foundation, have demonstrated the Obama bias of the MSM. He screams preposterous at his guest who points this out. Aggressiveness like his combined with a lack of intelligence is a witchs brew.
For Shepard to know nothing about the MSM Obama bias is truly bewildering. What country does he live in? And to add insult to injury, the FNC Judge pipes up with support for this absurdity. I dont really believe the Judge believes what he said in order to prop up an over-matched Smith.
With Brit Hume, as sophisticated as any contemporary journalist around, retiring from FNC, and Smith too dense to understand his own intellectual limitations, things dont seem to be too bullish for the Fox News Channel. Its truly sad.
I always pegged Shep as a liberal. This closes the case.
Ailes needs to move Shep’s show to say 3AM, following Red Eye.
My house is a Shep Smith free zone. Most of them are pretty bad, but he is the absolute bottom of the barrel.
Great idea. Fox needs more folks like Tony Snow, not this guy.
He is a Geraldo wannabe.
Shep is just hunting for a same sex marriage. Hes no more an embarrassment than Doocey.
Its gotten to where one cant watch Fox and Friends without him walking off the the set doing something silly.
Poor Shep. Keeping his homosexuality in the closet is really causing him to become delusional.
Wasn’t Shep the first reporter to claim during Hurricane Katrina that people were eating each other?
Him and his buddies were eating each other.
Tagline says it all.
Case closed for me during Katrina aftermath.
Now the media can sit back and pat each other on the back for coming through for their team. All of your faux indignation cannot erase the millions of miles of video tape that is in every media outlet in this country. Books will be written defending both sides of this issue. Talking heads will point and counter-point it to their last breath, but the result is clear. YOU won. Without the bias of the American media and their clear determination to get their man elected this time the results may have been the same but we will never know for sure.
The media were working very hard to get Kerry elected to the point of creating false documents. When they got caught (thanks Howlin and Buckhead), I wondered if they would search their souls and straighten up or double down to prove they could chose the candidates and the winner. They doubled down.
I am still waiting for Fox to fire Cameron for his low-life sliming of Palin that wasn’t fit for a gosip page.
That's pretty sad - who would want to be Geraldo?
Shwepp is nothing but a liberal, whiney drama queen. His actions post Katrina sealed his fate with me - I turn the channel whenever he's on. What a waste of air time.
He made some rather crude comments about gun buyers yesterday - something to the effect that they are "mental" cases or words to that effect. Apparently, he believes Obambi's "pro-gun" words over his anti-gun actions.
Boy, he is stupid, and worse, unsophisticated.
But now of course, even Cable in full of people like him
and extreme cases like TingleUpTheLeg Matthews, who at this
point has shed all objectivity and wants to do all he can to make Obama successful. I said unsophisticated, and it shows with Smith: “the MSM didn’t lead, it followed” , followed a phenomonon of “the change that was happening in
the country”. WOW! the WHOLE POINT OF THE MEDIA IS THAT IT SHOULD LEAD!It should lead ONLY on the basis of its unique ability to disseminate objective information that it is set up to capture more than the workaday drones on the other
side of the TV set, who don’t have the time or resources to do “investigative reporting”. AND if the MSM “followed”, it was only because it’s become too timid and corrupted to try to threaten those “changes” its own incestuous relationship with power, LEFTWING power, HAS INSTITUTIONALIZED BY DEFAULT. But don’t fret over Smith and Napolitano, or Fox for using them.....didn’t you know FOX was fair and balanced? /sarc
Do Not Hold Your BREATH!
“during Katrina that people were eating each other?”
-—I dunno. That sounds “so Geraldo”.
Might Glen Beck be taking over his time slot?
