Fox News is often considered to be a “conservative” news network. But not everyone on the network supports the GOP.
Several of their personalities have shown not just liberal views, but outright hostility towards conservatives. The network booted Megyn Kelly over her outrageous behavior. But still lurking in the network is Shep Smith.
Despite his long-running time on the network, it seems like Shep is hardly a Trump-lover. He recently outright attacked the President. There was only one problem, what he said was completely false.
Now viewers are raging mad.
From Lynx Media:
Fox News’s Shep Smith on Wednesday “fact-checked” President Trump after the president claimed that the Russia investigation is a “Democratic hoax.”
“The president again calling the Russia investigation a ‘Democratic hoax’,” Smith said. “It is not. Fox News has been reporting and will continue to report that two people have pleaded guilty.”
Smith then brought up the indictments of Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos…
Trump repeated his claims that there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia. And so far, there’s no evidence that there was any sort of coordination.
“There was absolutely no collusion, everybody knows it. I’ve been in office for 11 months, for 11 months they’ve had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government, and it has hurt our government,” Trump said.
These are the kinds of tactics you’d expect from fake news outlets. Shep claims the Russian investigation has led to two people pleading guilty. He doesn’t mention those “pleas” have nothing to do with Russian collusion.
Both Flynn and Papadopoulos plead guilty to process crimes. They weren’t not factual in how they answered questions to the FBI. That is not the same as colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. In fact, the only group that seemed to be working with Russia was Hillary’s campaign. Yet where is her investigation.
It’s obvious Mueller’s probe is a waste of time. It was started by a former FBI head who wanted to stick it to Trump. There is no basis for this waste of time and money.
Perhaps Shep is too stupid to realize that. Or perhaps, he’s letting his bias get in the way of his job.
