Shepard Smith, A Giant Embarrassment For Fox News
Breitbart TV ^ | 11/12/08 | AJAY

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 witch’s 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 don’t 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 don’t seem to be too bullish for the Fox News Channel. It’s truly sad.

"...the only time I turned it on again was during Greta’s interview with Governor Palin."

I didn't even watch that since I knew someone on FR would post a link to a video of it.

We do know who will replace Brit if Special Report continues on the air. It seems extremely likely it will be Bret Baier since he now always is the replacement when Brit is not there.

“Wasn’t Shep the first reporter to claim during Hurricane Katrina that people were eating each other?”

Shep definitely had a hissy during Katrina. Completely lost his mind. Must have been the dirty bathrooms.

“My house is a Shep Smith free zone”

Lucky for me Spike TV put Seinfeld back on from 7 to 8. I can watch Seinfeld episodes over and over

“I have not watched Fox News since about midnight last Tuesday. I’m gonna keep it that way. I’ve had enough.”

Me too ..but I did catch Allie whatshername this AM on F&F and she has that mysterious quality..smart and slutty. Pretty good for a woman nearing retirement.

I wish you were in the programming department. I will be in the weeds when Hume leaves. God forbid Krauthammer should leave.

Ailes needs to move Shep’s show to say 3AM, following Red Eye.

He's on his way out. Glen Beck is taking over Shep's old G-spot. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

I knew Faux News would become lefties. Faux News is now the far-left media whores they claimed to be fighting against.

I think you are wrong, really wrong. The fact they don’t toe the bigoted line you draw in the sand is good.

If you hate Shep, tape Cavuto and watch it later. He is the best in the business.

Isn’t there another show in the works for him? He happened up on Fox&Friends one morning and they were talking about it. I hope like another poster that it comes on late, late, late and I won’t have to see his mug when I’m channel surfing. I like the idea that Glenn will take his spot but I think Glenn is supposed to take the 5pm Eastern and Smith has the 7pm Eastern.........I hope that’s wrong. Smith is on 2 times a day. That’s more than the average person should be subjected to. :(
