A Fox News anchor lost it on the air over torture and dropped the “F-bomb.” Upon seeing the headline, I immediately thought of Shep Smith, who likes to consider himself an objective reporter and to his credit, occasionally manages to pull it off. He also voices “righteous indignation” at times, and on occasion, it’s less than subtle. I can’t think of anyone else at Fox who gives a s**t about torture. Slant-head Hannity speaks of it almost fondly.
If you’ve read me for awhile, you may surmise that you can save some time by checking Raw Story before you click on NWO, since although I do cull from other sources, I rarely post with out first checking there. But then you’d miss my rapier wit, cheap shots, interpretation and sarcasm, which is a big part of why I do this. It’s cathartic. But while decidedly left-leaning, Raw Story avoids giving targets pet names. They rarely go off on tangents. They’re more what I like to refer to as “reality-based!” They typically break stories quickly. When I get a story up before them, I fell pretty “special.” It happens, honest. Sometimes they don’t amount to much but once in a while I strike gold.
Mr. Smith needs to figure out who he is and should this indicate an awakening from a long slumber to discover that Fox is merely a voice of the GOP, should it be that he may have somehow missed that until this point, perhaps it’s time for him to re-examine his career path. My guess is that he’ll be cool with it by payday.
So watch the clip, then see Raw Story’s comments on it–Some good background/links there.Vodpod videos no longer available.
