Thank God! Shep Smith resigned from Fox News.
« on: October 11, 2019, 05:59:14 PM »
On 9/11, my wife was in the Pentagon and I was working in a near-by office building.  God looked out for both of us and we got home safely, although it took hours in the traffic and we didn't know if each other had made it since the cell phone service shut down.  We watched Sheppard Smith on Fox during the whole aftermath of the event and enjoyed his coverage.

Then Roger Ailes passed and we watched Shep talk about what a kind man Roger was and how Roger helped Shep when he was being blackmailed as a gay man, who was still in the closet then, to fight through the blackmail and come out.  Shep never saw the alleged sexual predator side of the man like so many women stated.

Then Trump ran, and Shep showed his true colors.  A "Never Trumper" and quasi liberal.  His reporting was and has remained so tainted that my wife and I stopped watching Fox anytime Shep was on.  Shep says he can't report for anyone else for a short period of time.  I figure we'll see him on CNN or something just as left-wing soon.

Man, getting old sucks.  Why can't I just watch Bobbie Batista on CNN like in the 80's before it became the Clinton News Network??!!!

i'm with you. He was hemorrhaging viewers in his prime time slot and was moved to his early afternoon spot after his anti Trump bias came clear. He always seemed prissy to me and that was before he came out of the closet. No doubt he'll join his fellow sodomites on CNN or MSNBC where he will be welcomed with open arms. Probably in the spring when election fever starts ramping up.

I hope Cavuto follows him out the door.

my Wife's only channel on her TV is "Fox" (she named one of our adopted dogs "Tucker") - personally I don't watch ANY of the networks (ABC, NBC, CBS  nor  FOX) - seems they all run the same "reporting" day after day after.....and I get tired of the propaganda that's put forth from both sides of the aisle

I was happy to see him go. He was in the afternoon, though. Not really prime time. And, I think they cut his time in 1/2 a while back.

Frankly, I couldn't care about about his own personal sexual leanings, since that is his own business. None of mine. But, I disagree with his liberal bias's.

I refused to watch the obvious libtard bias he was spewing. Anytime he was on, I turned it off.
And that was before I ever knew he was a perverted pos.

I agree with others, I didn't care if he was gay or not.  I just got tired of his anti-Trump rhetoric.  Maybe someone from their fill-in anchors they plan to run will click and it'll all fall back together.

In hindsight, there always seems to be a "sweet spot" in life, for jobs, media, music, that sort of thing.  And then one day its gone and you have to wait for the next spot.  So it was with Shep and Fox.  Now, I'm just waiting.......

I don't understand why anyone watches Fox? It is just the same old muckraking pseudo-news sensationalism like the rest of the lamestream media networks. It just , sometimes has a conservative bent. I way prefer the way OANN presents the news. They even have bombastic editorial shows that I seldom watch. I would rather just hear the news and develop my own opinion. I just hate being lectured to by a bunch of self-righteous pompous assholes that feel that, only They , have a pipeline to the Truth.

I pretty much agree with Randy on this. Even Fox news has moved towards being just as lame at being mainstream media as the others. Leaning towards being able to call themselves conservative doesn't excuse them.

Whatever news I need, I can get from the radio as well.

Which has as much bias as the TV.

Want to really get the news on US watch BBC news. Seems to be more news and less opinion.

I agreed with your BBC statement until a couple of months ago, when many of their US-based political coverage started looking like re-writes of CNN stories.

I don't watch any of the MSM stations just the local news and weather.
