Question for media watchers: Shep Smith is touted as a hard news reporter?? VanityPosted on 10/17/2014, 1:31:34 PM by ru4libertyIn their descriptions of the various programs on the fair and balanced network, they try to sell Shep as a hard-news guy. I’ve even heard him allude to that characterization concerning himself.I don’t generally watch his show because he comes across as an arrogant little fart, but the times I have watched have caused me to scratch my head at the claim that he’s a true neutral news reporter. I found it extremely unprofessional when, during the Blagojevich era, he always used the phrase “Planet Blago” to introduce those segments. He seemed quite amused with himself as his expression turned to a mirthful smirk when he uttered the phrase.In recent days, I have heard two people comment on Shep’s appropriate assessment of the media’s overkill of the Ebola coverage. Uh, Shep’s assessment? Isn’t a hard-news person supposed to give you the facts and let you sort them out and draw your own conclusion? Yes, yes. I know. In a perfect world, that would be the case. And we certainly don’t live in a perfect world. But I consider these statements revealing, so much so that they put the reputation of FOX News’ hard-news division in the basement with the other news sources we love to hate. Unless FOX had a “Commentary” label on the screen when he made these assessments, they need to stop trying to sell him as a real news guy.

D’Souza told Megyn Kelly, “My faith in an independent judiciary is affirmed.”D’Souza was indicted in January for campaign finance, and pled guilty in May.
D’Souza had suggested on multiple occasions that he was targeted for his criticisms of President Obama, a charge prosecutors strongly denied.D’Souza repeatedly said in his interview tonight that there’s been an “all-out attempt to put me away,” and while he didn’t directly say it was the Obama administration, he did note there’s a “pattern of this administration using the instruments of the law… to go after its critics.”

The last few days have proved to be a crashing reality for the idol worshipers who have left a trail of drool as they have followed Barack Obama since he announced he was the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln and offered his brilliance for the world’s top job.
He announced that he was smarter than his intelligence advisers, no matter what their speciality might be. Politics? Yes, I’m smarter he told us. National Security?
