Turn on Fox News!!! Shepherd Smith is being a MORON re: the SoCal kidnapping!!!

in General Discussion edited January 2014

I've never seen an on-camera reporter/journalist/anchor (with the exception of Mr. Rivera, of course) act so out-of-line, unprofessional and so in love with his own opinions/beliefs!

He's on the air, totally bagging on these kids for "partying" (he doesn't know), not providing a good description (TOTALLY reaming these two guys for not providing a good description of the kidnapper, while saying "a 5 year old girl in the Samantha Runnion case provided an incredible description that helped catch Avila!") and on and on.

He's insinuated that they're stoned, drunk, cowards, etc.

He's had guests on who - at best - look uncomfortable, as if to say "I can't believe this asshead is asking these questions...".

Funny stuff. Not the kidnapping, of course, but this idiot's (Smith's) awful on-air behavior!

I bet he'll get reprimanded.

And he also said some really crass, tacky things about the girls (the kidnap victims) themselves!

What an ass. Somebody else turn this on and back me up on this!

    It's like he's trying to be a little O'Reilly Jr. (righteous indignation and seething disgust), but he's just coming across as a game show host on crystal meth.

    Fox"News" is a joke, full of morons just like that who don't know the first thing about how to interview someone.

    I've seen this guy operate before and it is pathetic, I'd rather watch a closet liberal slip in a few smug comments than these rabid conservative freaks belittle every guest they get.

    Definitely the "she was asking for it" type.

    This Smith guy is DEFINITELY a clown. He's got that smarmy, "I think I'm kinda cute, and pretty funny..." aura about him.

    He seems to fancy himself a Matthew McCouneghy type. All drawl and a perpetual smirk/smile.

    It doesn't work on him.

    Tamara's brother and father rock. Very composed interviews. Jaqueline's parents look like they're from Bakersfield... <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> heh.

    Fox News insults my intelligence:

    *Rapid-fire, "look-at-me," graphics and sound effects

    *Strong conservative and weak liberal pairings under the guise of "fair and balanced"

    *Bill O'Reilly himself- the conspicuously consevative "independent"
