  • FOX News Anchor Shepard Smith Finally ‘Comes Out,’ Admits He’s Gay

    10/18/2016 6:02:19 PM PDT · by TangoLimaSierra · 78 replies ^ | 10/18/16 | 21wire
    For many viewers, this came as no surprise, but for many FOX conservative loyalists, this latest news would have come as a shock. FOX News host Shepard Smith joins other high-profile gay cable news anchors like CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon. A number of high-profile media critics including top-rated talk radio host Michael Savage, have recently raised the alarm that FOX News is undergoing a liberal facelift following the departure of its news head Roger Ailes over a number sexual harassment cases.

    I happened to catch a jaw-dropping incident on the Fox News Channel air yesterday, as Shepard Smith’s breaking news coverage of the Baton Rouge police ambush brought on Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal for telephone comments. In the course of attempting to heal the raw nerves, Gov. Jindal said “all lives matter” and was rebuked by the crew-cut newsman. Kristinn Taylor of Gateway Pundit captured the exchange:

    On Sunday, Fox News’ Shepard Smith slammed former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who had the temerity to say that “all lives matter.” Twitter responded by demanding Smith be fired. “Shepard, I will say this, look, it, it is time for folks across party lines, across ideological lines to con–to condemn this violence, to condemn this insanity. We gotta come together. We’ve got to say that all lives matter,” Jindal said, according to a partial transcript posted at the Gateway Pundit. “It doesn’t matter what color you are: Black, white, brown, red, it doesn’t matter.

    What does it take to get a member of the MSM to praise a Fox News host? Simple: trash Donald Trump. On yesterday's With All Due Respect, co-host John Heilemann declared "I have always like Shep Smith, and I like him more today than I've ever liked him before." So what had Shep done to enhance Heilemann's fondness for him? On his show on Tuesday, during a dialogue with Wall Street Journal editor John Bussey, Smith tore Donald Trump, and his plan for Muslims, to shreds. Smith called the plan unlawful, unconstitutional, fear-mongering, racist and "crazy." He claimed Trump "lied"...

    As many conservatives fret over Pope Francis' views on climate change and income inequality ahead of his Thursday speech before Congress, Fox News host Shepard Smith chided those individuals who have criticized the pope for talking about "political" issues. During Fox News coverage of Pope Francis' arrival at the White House on Wednesday morning, host Bill Hemmer mentioned that the pontiff may discuss issues that both Democrats and Republicans may disagree with during his address on Thursday. "Oftentimes the pope is called to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. And you wonder who might be comfortable in Washington, D.C.,...

    As you may have heard, MSNBC has seen some big (and warranted) changes in 2015. Add it all up, and every program that existed from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM EDT as recently as six months ago no long exists. The alterations are swift: A national correspondent (Kate Snow) and a political director (Chuck Todd) will be joining and rejoining, respectively, the 19-year-old cable network. Morning Joe will occupy 25 percent of live (or plausibly live) programming per day. Opinion-based programming––at least after the morning show and before primetime––has been cleared away as a more traditional news focus takes...

    Fractures in conservative opposition to gay rights and even same-sex marriage have now widened to include the core of the right’s message machine, the Fox News Channel, where a cadre of younger voices have begun to defend same-sex relationships and even advocate openly for same-sex marriage. (snip) Smith is the most notable and frequent example to buck Fox News’ regular party line on the issue. But the same week that Smith described “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day,” organized by fellow Fox host Mike Huckabee, as a “national day of intolerance,” Kelly joined Smith on his side of the gay marriage debate .......

Mike Huckabee -- a fellow Fox News anchor -- and turned out to be one of the company’s best days regarding sales. Smith, who has stated that he supports marriage equality in the past, was able to cleverly slam the fast-food chain and the politician without directly mentioning them, Mediaite reported.

For example, as Smith was tossing to commercial Wednesday afternoon, he took what seemed like a hard shot at former Arkansas Governor and Fox stablemate Mike Huckabee‘s “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day,” invented to celebrate that restaurant chain’s opposition to marriage equality. Delivering one of those banal date-related factoids that news shows throw out there every so often, Smith said “It’s National Badminton Day,” then added “forget National Day of Intolerance, let’s just stay with badminton.” Smith has previously...

    It seems as though the only time Lawrence O’Donnell has something nice to say about Fox News, it comes at the expense of nearly half the country. Following the incendiary comments Fox News’ Smith made following Obama’s public support for gay marriage, MSNBC’s O’Donnell rushed to his defense and praised him for violating FNC's central value of remaining "fair and balanced." O’Donnell claimed that Smith is the lone voice of reason at Fox News and his comments caused the Fox News website Fox Nation to alter a headline reading "Obama flip-flops, declares war on marriage," to "Obama flip-flops."

Kurtz lauded Smith as an "outspoken newsman at the network defined by high-decibel conservatives, a stance that has earned him respect even from some Fox-hating liberals." But was it really his "newsman" status that has earned him this respect, or is it the numerous instances in which Smith has agreed with the left?

    I am tired of listening to Shep Smith from fox news in describing the fighting in Beirut. I have watched intently and am disgusted with him. It is quite apparent Shep is a liberal and has an agenda. He will make small comments in his reporting taking cheap shots at Israel, yet making Hezbollah look strong. I just watched him interview some young Israel soldiers and the ones he put in his report were anything but seasoned soldiers. Shep would ask them questions like "Are you scared?", "are Hezbollah fierce fighters?", etc. It was sickening. Heh Shep, while don't you...

    BEIRUT — Thousands of Americans whose vacations and business trips to Lebanon have degenerated with sickening speed into stints in a battle zone remained stranded here under Israeli bombardment Monday, their frustration and anger mounting because the U.S. government hasn't gotten them out faster. Waiting around Beirut with bags packed and fingers crossed, U.S. citizens derided the embassy for busy phone lines, a lack of information and gnawing uncertainty over when and whether they will get out. Hundreds were expected to be shipped to Cyprus today, but how long the full evacuation will take remains uncertain.

    by Mark Finkelstein December 5, 2005 - 15:39. Someone, quick: buy the man a Valium. Make it a double! I'm sure most here remember the hysterics in which Shep Smith engaged while reporting from New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. He was back at it today, shouting, screaming and accusing as he zinged the government for its shortcomings as detailed in the just-released 9/11 Commission 'report card' on implementation of its national security recommendations. Thankfully, Shep had James Carafano, across the video lines, to hold his hand, burp him on the back and assure him that the sky wasn't...

    Can we agree?: Shep Smith is preening ignoramus. Smith just concluded an interview of Juan Williams by offering up the following pet theory: "When President Bush nominated Miers, he did so with a big wink and let conservatives know she was 'one of us.' But even though conservatives knew that, they rejected her, because she was not sufficiently in-your-face as a pick, and they wanted to poke liberals in the eye with a nominee." Has Smith been following the debate that has raged in conservative circles over Miers? Is he aware of the serious doubts that arose as to the...

    Louisiana National Guard Col. Thomas Beron tells The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune of his encounter with a doctor from FEMA. The doctor and three others arrived at the Superdome with a refrigerated 18-wheeler prepared to process 200 bodies that were reportedly stored in a freezer, there, following accounts of murder, mayhem and rape. The real total was six, Col.Beron explains. Four died from natural causes, one from an overdose, and one was an apparent suicide. (Four other bodies were found, nearby, outside the Dome.) The Times-Picayune went on to expose a long list of wild exaggerations and false claims of carnage...
