    News veterans Shepard Smith, Steve Kornacki and Joy Reid are all on the shortlist to take over Chris Matthews’ abruptly vacated seat on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” sources told The Post. The legendary political journalist surprised viewers Monday when he abruptly announced his retirement in the wake of accusations that he acted inappropriately toward a female guest, leaving Kornacki, a national political correspondent, to fill in. In addition to Kornacki, who is known for giving analysis of polls and election results, network brass are also thinking of giving “Hardball” to Reid, who hosts, MSNBC’s popular weekend show “AM Joy.” Reid frequently substitutes...

    A Texas teacher who lost her job after asking President Trump on Twitter to remove the “illegal students from Mexico” from her school has won an appeal to get her job back. Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath ruled Monday that the series of offensive tweets sent in May by Georgia Clark — an English teacher at Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth — were protected by the First Amendment, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Clark, whose Twitter account has since been deleted, is now entitled to return to the classroom with back pay and employment benefits or district officials...

    Shepard Smith was the worst thing on Fox News not because he was an anti-Trump leftist, but because he lied and lied and lied, claiming he was not. There are plenty of anti-Trump leftists on Fox News, and that’s a good thing. It is also to the eternal credit of Fox that, unlike its competition on the far left — CNN and MSNBC — Fox actually airs a legitimate diversity of opinions on the issues of the day, most especially President Trump. That was not Shepard Smith. No, rather than come out of the partisan closet, rather than put on...

    After 23 years as one of the most prominent on air personalities at the Fox News channel, left wing program host Shepard Smith made the surprise announcement at the end of his program Shepard Smith Reporting on Friday afternoon that he is leaving the channel immediately (Fox News video here). Only minutes before, Fox News Media Relations emailed a news release to journalists, including this one, titled “Shepard Smith to Step Down from FOX News.” The release was attributed to an unusually high level source at the channel, Irena Briganti, the Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications for Fox...

    With President Trump actively distorting the truth and many of his own colleagues helping him do it, the Fox News star prided himself on anchoring a newscast that countered the network's pro-Trump opinion shows. The way Smith saw it, he was making sure that accurate information was getting on Fox's air. "I wonder," he told a Time magazine reporter last year, "if I stopped delivering the facts, what would go in its place in this place that is most watched, most listened, most viewed, most trusted? I don't know."

    Shepard Smith announced Friday that he will step down as Fox News Channel's chief news anchor and managing editor of the network's breaking news unit.

    In a shocking turn of events that stunned the media industry, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith announced his departure from the network after more than 23 years. Smith is one of the faces of the network's news division and one of its most important journalistic assets. The decision was Smith's, Fox News said.

    The incendiary on air war that broke out earlier this week, pitting several of the most prominent Fox News channel personalities against each other, has cooled off for the moment. The sudden flare-up of simmering grudges between Fox News’s opinion and news sides that finally boiled over into public view involved opinion host Tucker Carlson, news host Shepard Smith, and the channel’s senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano. The war of harsh words that went back and forth on Carlson’s and Smith’s programs Tuesday and Wednesday, which also involved Carlson’s guest, Republican attorney Joseph diGenova, was unprecedented and was immediately seized...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Last week, after President Donald Trump had said that, because his three predecessors in the job failed ot deal with China’s unfair trade practices, and therefore he was the “chosen one” to do so, the Democrat-toadying news media went berserk. “Trump thinks he’s the Chosen one!” they wailed, “Trump compares himself to a messiah!” the headlines roared. On and on and on it went, even though the President was very clearly using the term “chosen one” in a highly ironic and humorous manner. But of course, when it comes to covering the...

    President Trump on Wednesday renewed his criticism of Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, arguing that "fake news CNN" was better and that he now tunes into the conservative news outlet One America News whenever he gets the chance. "Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews," Trump tweeted on a day during which he visited first responders and survivors of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. "Actually, whenever possible, I turn to [One America News]!" It was not immediately clear what Trump's tweets, which followed Smith's daily program and...
