    Legions of the conservative viewers who made Fox News the number-one cable news channel celebrated when Shepard Smith departed its lineup in 2019. According to the Daily Beast in 2019, he ditched his $15-million salary in the middle of a three-year contract because of criticism from higher-rated conservatives at Fox, including Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. I had come to the point where I switched channels when he came on because his snarky anti-conservative commentary was unbearable.Smith took his time returning to the TV news business, and according to this Daily Beast story yesterday, he was in discussion with a...

    Shepard Smith, once a star anchor at Fox News, made headlines last year when he abruptly left the network. Now, his highly anticipated — and heavily promoted — new show at CNBC is falling behind repeats of Fox Business show Lou Dobbs Tonight. Since its launch on September 30, CNBC’s The News with Shepard Smith has presented a sleek hard news program with big name guests like Dr. Anthony Fauci — all while facing a continued decline in viewership.

    On Wednesday, Smith opened his show calling out the president's comments during Tuesday night's debate. He said Trump 'called into question the heart of our democracy'. Smith also noted 'the president told a group of white stand back and stand by' and how Biden called Trump 'a racist, a liar, a clown'. He opened his show with no music, arguing the debate had been 'noise' and ended the evening by revealing a CNBC poll found 53 per cent of those asked thought Joe Biden did best in the debate, compared to just 29 per cent for the president.

    At least one network boss, CNN president Jeff Zucker, has already publicly expressed interest. CNN and MSNBC are shaping up to be the two likeliest landing spots for former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, who unexpectedly left the network in October and has been on the cable news sidelines ever since as he waits out a non-compete agreement of unknown length. On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Smith has talked to MSNBC president Phil Griffin about potentially joining the network. But, officially, both camps are staying quiet. Smith's spokesperson, Chris Giglio, declined comment on Tuesday when asked by The...

    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 Trump’s treatment of the press." Subtle? “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We don’t have to look far for evidence of that,” Smith said. “Our belief a decade ago that...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Goodbye, Sheppie, we hardly knew ye. – Here is the only truly appropriate reaction to the news that the slimy Shep Smith has left Fox News: [gif] In all seriousness, does anyone really care that our TV screens will no longer be graced by this shrill, overwrought hack? In recent years, Smith’s only role at Fox News was to come on air and cause half the cable channel’s regular viewers to tune into OANN. The channel attempted to elevate his role a few years ago by making him the “anchor” for all...

    As soon as Shep Smith signed off Fox News on Friday, he rode down a freight elevator to the underground garage where a car and driver were waiting. His departure was emotional enough as is -- he didn't want a tearful goodbye in his studio or the newsroom. He knew his colleagues would have questions and concerns. The big question: What will Fox's news operation look like without him? Among rank and file staffers and even some of the network's anchors, there is deep concern that the news side of Fox will be further squeezed by the opinion shows that...

    I love this time of year. Just got done with a brisk walk on this crisp, cool, cloudy autumn day in Southern Connecticut. All the leaves turning colors and gently falling to the ground. If you are like me, you try to catch them as they fall around you. Swirling in the wind, the leaves are more tricky to catch than you might think. But what to do when you do catch one? I just put it in my pocket for a while and then eventually I pull it out and let it fall to the ground further away then...
