Like Megyn Kelly, It’s Time For Shepherd Smith To Go
On Thursday, Fox News Anchor Shepard Smith went off on President Trump while sticking up for CNN shortly after the President’s news conference where he bashed the media for it’s wildly inaccurate reporting and fake news.
From TV Line:
“He’s an accomplished reporter — a guy I’ve never met, but a good reporter,” Smith said of Acosta. “[Trump was] treating him like … I’m not even going to use the word. I’m not going to give Twitter the love it needs. It’s crazy what we’re watching everyday, it’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia, as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question.”
He continued: “Really? Your opposition was hacked, and the Russians were responsible for it, and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening, and we’re fools for asking the questions? No, sir, we are not fools for asking this question, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.”
Smith concluded, “We have a right to know, we absolutely do, and that you call us ‘fake news’ and put us down like children for asking this question is inconsequential. The people deserve that answer.”
Calling Jim Acosta of CNN a good reporter takes a lot of credibility away from Shepard Smith. Acosta was the obnoxious reporter who interrupted President Trump repeatedly a few weeks back.
Like Megyn Kelly, it is time for Shepard Smith to leave Fox News and go join a failing news network like NBC.
