Good riddance

Fox News, quickly being Fundamentally Transformed by new management into an all-Left-all-the-time outlet excepting Hannity and Tucker, accidentally does something right by driving off sensationalist putz Shep Smith.

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.

Smith’s final edition of his afternoon program “Shepard Smith Reporting” aired Friday and the network will use a rotating series of news anchors in the 3 p.m. ET timeslot on what will now be known as “Fox News Reporting.”

“Shep is one of the premier newscasters of his generation and his extraordinary body of work is among the finest journalism in the industry.”

More of an indictment of newscasters and journalism than praise for Smith, if you ask me.

“His integrity and outstanding reporting from the field helped put FOX News on the map and there is simply no better breaking news anchor who has the ability to transport a viewer to a place of conflict, tragedy, despair or elation through his masterful delivery,” Fox News president and executive editor Jay Wallace said in a statement.

Yeh, yeh, yeh. Take a hike, douchebag, and don’t let the door etc. Ace bitch-slaps Jake Tapper for waxing all indignant about somebody or other’s Twitter characterization of Smith as “left wing,” which is actually correct, before plunging the knife in himself:

Let’s remember Shep as he was: As a preening car-chase game-show host who mistook himself for a newsman.

Ouch. Yep, let’s. Too bad Chuck Barris is gone; he’d have been the perfect replacement, and would have lent an air of sober gravitas that would’ve made for a nice contrast with Shep’s weepy over-emoting and hysteria.

  1. Sundance has a post up today about a meeting Bill Barr had with R. Murdoch the day before. Coincidence?

    Things that make you go hmmmm.

    Me? I’m just glad to see the faggot go.
    Now he’s free to pickle his rind in Don LeMon’s bunghole (or Cooper’s, or both) if he chooses.
