    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.

    I hardly ever watched Shepard Smith, so I guess I won't miss him much. I think Fox is going through kind of a shakeup, and hopefully it turns out better for them. There's a few others I wouldn't mind seeing replaced as well.

    Shepard Smith had the balls to speak his mind and he had been the recipient of attacks from Carlon, guests of Shane Vannity, and other Fox non News talking head hosts. Trump had attacked Smith on Twitter.

    Hope he will be replace by a guy like Alex Jones or Milo Yiannopoulos.

    This would be a logical continuation of Fox's mission to dull as many Trumpsters as possible.

    It would be nice, but I don't think we'll be so lucky.

    He was in a lousy time slot, so whoever they get to replace him isn't going to fair much better.

    I heard he gave them an ultimatum. Him or Tucker Carlson. Based on viewership an easy decision.

    Interesting he "steps down" after Barr met with Murdoch. Trump sent his AG in to force Fox to release Shep because Trump's a spineless bitch.

    LOL, that's our cuck of a POTUS for ya.

    Sounds very convincing to me, Walter. Are Dems going to include Shep's resignation as one of their articles of impeachment?

    Fox (Trump's Pravda (State-Sponsored Propaganda Network)) is purging anyone that won't kiss Trump's Ass 24/7. :smh:

    That leaves Bret Baier as FOX's only remaining journalist (Wallace is on network). Kind of like MSNBC.

    Bret Baier is pretty bland. I always liked Britt Hume, but I don't see much of him anymore, getting up in the years I guess.

    I just don't care. I watch Fox news, but I think for myself.
