Shepard Smith Quits Fox News

Alinvegas

King (Just like Trump)
Shepard Smith, whose newscast on Fox News Channel seemed increasingly an outlier on a network dominated by supporters of President Trump, abruptly quit after working at Fox since it started in 1996.

Smith said at the end of his daily newscast on Friday that he had asked the network to let him out of his contract and it had agreed.

Even in the current polarized environment, Smith said “it’s my hope that the facts will win the day, that the facts will always matter and journalism and journalists will thrive.”

Neil Cavuto, who anchors the broadcast following Smith’s, looked shocked after the announcement.

“Whoa,” Cavuto said. “Like you, I’m a little stunned.”

Smith’s departure also comes one day after Attorney General William Barr met privately with media mogul Rupert Murdoch, founder of Fox News. President Trump has been increasingly critical of personalities on Fox News that he views as disloyal.

On his afternoon newscast, Smith had frequently given tough reports debunking statements made by Trump and his supporters — even the Fox News opinion hosts that rule the network’s prime-time lineup.

Two weeks ago, Smith clashed with Tucker Carlson when an analyst on Smith’s program, Andrew Napolitano, said that it was a crime for President Trump to solicit aid for his campaign from a foreign government, in this case the Ukraine. Later that night, Carlson asked his own analyst, Joseph diGenova, to comment and he called Napolitano a fool.

The next day, Smith said that “attacking our colleague who is here to offer legal assessments, on our air, in our work home, is repugnant.”

I sincerely hope the door doesn't bump his bum in the way out.

I am not at all surprised by this latest development. I predict he will be employed very soon by CNN.

Shep's job at Fox was to deliver the news. His show was NOT analysis or editorial. Yet, Shep editorialized constantly. I am surprised he wasn't fired.

That is part of the problem with the media today. There should be a difference between journalists and political opinion hosts. Yet, sadly its hard to tell the difference.

He did the right thing. He had no business telling the truth to people who didn't want to hear it. Now Faux Noise viewers can be lied to and gaslighted in peace.

That's good news. Shep should have been at MSNBC all along. He could be the female version of Rachel Maddow.

Smith said something during his goodbye that he had an agreement with Fox that he would not go to work at another station. They let him out of his contract so maybe it's just for the 2 years he had left.

Trump bashes Fox, Baghdad Barr pays a visit to Rupert Murdoch, Smith gets the bum’s rush.

Life in Trumplandia.
