Shephard Smith resigns from Fox News Channel... - 10-11-2019, 01:27 PM

No other info (it just came across the wire).

Does it have anything to do with Attorney General Barr meeting with Rupert Murdoch in the past few days? (And hey, why would he be meeting with him anyway? Asking him the best places to eat in Italy, or what?)

It was effective immediately, with his Friday broadcast his last time there.

He said leaving was his idea, which they said no to at first (he further said), but then obliged him.

Quote:
New York (CNN Business)In a stunning announcement, Shepard Smith said on his Friday show that after more than two decades at Fox News, he was stepping down as chief news anchor, and leaving the network.

"This is my last newscast here," Smith said, adding that he was "eternally grateful" to Fox for the opportunities it has afforded him.

"Together with my colleagues, we have written a first draft of history," Smith said. "Endeavored to deliver it to you while speaking truth to power, without fear or favor, in context and with perspective."

Smith signed off his newscast saying, "Even in our current polarized nation, it is my hope that the facts will win the day, that the truth will always matter, that journalism and journalists will thrive."

Smith's departure comes as tension between the network's news and opinion divisions reaches an all-time high. In the Trump era, and particularly in the last several weeks, the people working for Fox's news division have seen their work undermined by their opinion colleagues.

Recently, Smith engaged in a feud with opinion host Tucker Carlson.

Smith said that he recently asked Fox to allow him to leave and begin a "new chapter."

"After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged," Smith said.

This is a developing story. Check back for more...

No great loss to Fox. They got more that need to leave as well.
Trump is changing the news , and his tweets and youtube are way better and more accurate information.

The left hates Tucker Carlson so they say it's his fault. I don't know that at MSNBC and CNN they have folks that don't toe the company line.

It was Tucker that Shep locked horns with. Shep called Joey D's calling Judge Napolitano a 'fool' and making a foolish point, 'repugnant,' which was done on TC's show.

TC barked back something about how the 'straight news' types were nothing but opinion (which is gross gas-lighting, of course).

Reporting at the time said FNC threatened to fire Shep at that time if he kept the feud going longer than the two days to that point. Tucker has high ratings, if not such great ad revenues anymore since he went so repugnant and got a boycott from advertisers.

Shep was just a bit short of key skills.

Like investigating and reporting.

Everything else was just jibba jabba.

CNN sends old hosts to Fox, and it isn't often the reverse.

Tucker Carlson, Greta V., Howie Kurtz, Corey Lewandoski, and Bob Beckel went to Fox after being on CNN.

I don't think that Tucker is repugnant at all. What I see is left wing loons that want to control everybody's lives and hate free speech. Judge N is not the guy he was.

The neo-Nazi publisher of Storm Front said Tucker Carlson was making their points better than they could themselves, and he was their new hero.

Their views are repugnant and horrific. They highly appreciate his work. Connect the dots.
