Skip to comments.Shep Smith Trashes Trump as Autocrat Spewing 'Garbage and Lies' at Journalists Dinner
Posted on 11/22/2019 8:47:03 AM PST by rktman
Liberal media outlets were thrilled at Shepard Smith's first public remarks since abruptly leaving Fox News last month. Smith hosted a dinner of the Committee to Protect Journalists, and proclaimed he was donating a half million dollars to the group. Michael Grynbaum at The New York Times reported he called "for a steadfast defense of independent journalism, while offering a few subtle barbs at President Trumps treatment of the press."
Subtle? Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We dont have to look far for evidence of that, Smith said. Our belief a decade ago that the online revolution would liberate us now seems a bit premature, doesnt it? Autocrats have learned how to use those same online tools to shore up their power. They flood the world of information with garbage and lies, masquerading as news. Theres a phrase for that.

I never considered Shep to be a journalist.
“They flood the world of information with garbage and lies, masquerading as news. Theres a phrase for that.”
Somebody has to watch the watchers.
Funny how they never say what he actually lies about.
Maybe little Kneepads could talk about the treatment of Cheryl Atkisson and James Rosen by the Obama KGB.
Oddly I don’t recall Mr. Trump doing anything like that, which really should have been impeachable.
Shep was a radical gay militant, placed in Faux News to help destroy Faux News.
It is possible he may have succeeded.
It depends if Faux wakes up from the dream world they have been living under for the last 10 years.
From reliable sources, it was “after”.
Shame on Shep!
I find it difficult to believe he and I were raised in the same place...................
Damn... forgot he existed
I thought part of the agreement was for Shep to keep his mouth shut for a specific number of months. Maybe it was just for a few weeks.
No, Shep. I do not ‘Miss You Yet’ !
Better to be considered an AS***LE and keep your mouth shut than to open it and remove all doubt.
Talk about gay militants, the DUmmies are littered by them. And they are Intolerant as heck of any other viewpoints.
Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We dont have to look far for evidence of that, Smith said. I will let you in a little secret there, Sheppy, you Holly Springs ho biscuit, Out here in the real world, we haven’t trusted the press since about 1960 and you verified your stature as a complete imbecile by not recognizing that FACT. Bet you never hear this pass wind on air. Not enough pressure.
They flood the world of information with garbage and lies, masquerading as news. Theres a phrase for that.
It’s called propaganda and the Ministry of Propaganda are masters at it.
The Committee to Protect Propagandists would be a more accurate name.
I can’t think of a single reason I should give one single damn about what Shep Smith says.
Independent journalism my ascot. Shemp never once investigated anything and just respewed PR releases fed to him through twitter and Facebook. He injected his own subjective opinions into his journalism and never once fact checked and, in fact, defended Fox News when they went to court to protect their right to lie as journalists.
He was a fag as far back as the hurricane in New Orleans. I cannot stand abominations.
