Is Shepard Smith fair?

The guy seems to have some journalistic integrity. I was watching him yesterday on Studio B and he was 100 times fairer to President Obama than anyone else on Fox. His show gets decent ratings, too, so who is watching it? You'd think Fox's right wing viewing audience would get fed up with Shepard's bias toward reality.

1. He's their token

I think they wanted a token guy with sense and he's it. He's not as bad by far as anyone else on that hideous fake news channel.

2. His hate mail is legendary.

The people who tune in to Fox every day don't call his show "fair", but he somehow manages to get the ratings that keeps him on air.

3. He is like Major Garrett when he was on Faux.

I believe Major Garrett left, because he wanted to go back to real journalism.

4. About the only fair one on Faux.

My parents are conservative leaning but like Shep because they respect him. They watch Faux news non stop so I have to put up with it when I am over their house. Shep is about all I can stand.

8. IIRC, he rejoined the land of reality during coverage of New Orleans during and post-Katrina.

He was appalled and said so on the air. HanniTeaParty about blew a blood vessel back in the studio. You know, wouldn't want those facts to get between him and the lies he was feeding his audience.

9. Hannity

 

Hannity is one of the dumbest. Rush and Beck have a tiny bit of intelligence, but Hannity would be schooled by any competent liberal, which is why he generally only has weak, pathetic liberals on his show. Whenever they start making good points, he decides it is time for a commercial break, or he tells them to stop lighting candles and looking at their Obama posters. The guy is truly pathetic.

10. Watching Studio B right now

 

It's truly fair and balanced. Shepard Smith's two shows are the only shows on Faux that actually abide by that motto.
