    Self loathing leftie talking bad about Donnie. Who would have thought?

    In other news, the sky is blue.

    I am simply pointing out what the bastion of patriotic conservative news is saying.
    Your reply simply says you are scared of the truth.

    You're assuming Shepard Smith is a conservative. He should like Trump, they both must use the same spray tan.

    And he works for Fox News?
    My god, how far that news agency has fallen, relying on lefties like Smith and Wallace to hold it together.

    Trump lied, and he lied, and he lied some more. Even I thought the whole Russia collusion thing was fake news, until Trump Jr. provided proof that it actually happened.

    Sure, Fox News doesn't want to talk bad about Donnie. But we now have absolute proof that he lied! Even Fox News can't spin this completely away. If they try to ignore or cover up or otherwise refute this fact, there's really no way they can ever go back to being a "news" organization.

    The most concerning issue here is the response from people who are calling for him to be fired and suggest he go work for CNN or other MSM. Some of these people refuse to accept that Trump lies. And that the Media is to blame. This is why Trump's war on the media is so dangerous. And while I do not condone some of the media's coverage - when you have replies like this to a news host calling out the White House for their failure to keep their story straight - the media is NOT the problem.

    Chris Wallace is about the only one who's semi sensible in all of Fox News. All the others have brown stains on their noses (or bleached since it's Trump). Of course people are going to lash out if it doesn't go with the spin narrative they're putting out.

    Doesn't make it untrue. Also Trump lying? You're right - who would have thought. In other news, the sky is blue.

    Is it necessary to put derogatory labels on people who have a different opinion? Plenty of well-known conservatives are also fed up with Trump's almost constant lying.

    Fox has lefties cause they're more interested in NEWS, and perspective. Not like CNN, who hires anyone who swears an oath to hate Trump, America, and Truth.

    And yet when they do report, FOX viewers call for them to be fired because they don't want opposing view points. Go figure. So maybe it's less about FOX wanting balance but more because it's great for ratings.

    Cool, post some information about a mass calling from Fox viewers to fire Fox anchors....

    I bet you can't. People who watch Fox tend to not have time to make a huge uproar about some words they don't agree with.

    But I'm open... I'll be waiting for the info...

    That's what you thought what? That there's no proof? Ok. Enjoy being "right."

    Actually, the Washington Post article noted above has some details on this:

    Smith’s persistent fact-mongering has made him persona non grata among some parts of the Fox News faithful, in an echo of the hostile reaction to then-Fox anchor Megyn Kelly’s tough questioning of Trump during the campaign. For weeks, Fox fans have stormed social media with demands for Smith’s firing and boycott threats if the network doesn’t get rid of him.

    Shep Smith has gone full Rachel Maddow,” ranted Paul Joseph Watson, contributing editor of the conspiratorial Infowars, on Twitter after Friday’s dunking of Napolitano. “MSNBC irrelevance is his calling.”

    Some have posted an unflattering photo of Smith, 53, above the caption, “If you’re sick of this guy spewing his liberal tripe and his constant criticism of President Trump on a supposed news show, let Fox News know!!” It includes a number for Fox’s viewer comment line.

    They’ve memed him, too. One depicts Smith wearing one of the pink wool hatsthat became the symbol of the Women’s March in January.

    The mini-hysteria grew so loud earlier this month that a hoax website reported that Rupert Murdoch, Fox News chairman, had fired Smith for being “too controversial.” It was fake news, of course, but so widely disseminated that Snopes.com stepped in to debunk it.​

    Yea, a few people crying about it. Still don't see anything showing a mass of people crying to have him fired...
