    I admire the man for that. The look in his eye speaks volumes. Like he’s barely holding back a powerful urge to just go all Network on camera and blow the lid off. I hope he does some day.

      Richard Chesler: Get the fuck outta here! You’re fired.
      Narrator: I have a better solution: You keep me on the payroll as an outside consultant and in exchange for my salary my job will be never to tell people these things that I know. I don’t even have to come into the office, I can do this job from home.

    Shep isn’t looking to well.

  3. Does Fox hire failed character actors or something?  This guy should have been a villain on Knots Landing.

  4. Fox News isn’t news, but Shep is by far the best of the worst on that almost fact-free 24 hour commercial for corporate fascism. He’s also far closer to being a journalist than many of his “news actor” counterparts like Brian Williams and Candy Crowley. He signs off nightly saying, “…for the journalists at Fox News” which I feel certain is a dig at the lying imbeciles like Megyn Kelly, Varney, O’Reilly, etc. Also note he NEVER covers the culture wars BS that is such a large part of Fox News programming. All in all, for a corporate shill for the status quo, he’s one of the best we’ve got.

       He sure sounds like he needs a stiff drink, a good manly “I know how you feel” bro-hug, and some friends to shoot the shit with, all over a good huge dinner. Perhaps his wife boinking him senseless will also help dull the pain.

    After too many days in the asylum one is no longer sure: warden, or ward?

    Shep Smith is the walrus; Roger Ailes is the horse

    Some has got to sample that! Gold.

    On a webcast, Sheperd Smith got angry over America’s use of waterboarding and said “We are America, we don’t fucking torture!”

    It’s not exactly a secret that Shep is gay (except to the oblivious Fox News viewer demographic). He gets actual experts for opinions on his shows, and some of them are also gay.

  9. W. James Au says:

    Shep Smith looks eerily like Leland Palmer in *Twin Peaks* — except in his case, he’s on FOX News, so instead of being a demon-possessed killer, he’s the only sane man trapped in a Black Lodge of gibbering psychopaths and backward-talking midgets.

    •  *That’s* who he reminds me of! Thank you for settling that for me.

      (Also, anybody else have a completely meta-fictional freakout when Palmer showed up on Mad Men this week? I was utterly convinced he was going to hurt Sally Draper.)

    • jimh says:

      If only Shep’s hair had turned white overnight.

    • nachoproblem says:

      Holy carp, get out of my head. And that same guy has a character role in like a zillion things, right? That’s why he made me think of Twin Peaks.

      Thank you. I keep wanting to say it before, but I thought I was crazy.

  10. Petzl says:

    I like Shep.  He’s the only person (besides Beckel I guess, but whats he doing there) who isn’t a robot mouthpiece for Ailes’ talking points.

    However, what am I missing here?  What is “creepy”?  Where’s the dissonance? Where’s the political funny? Sorry for my denseness.

    • Garrett Eaton says:

      Yeah, thats what I was wondering too…  Someone please politely explain.

      • softyelectric says:

        Newt Gingrich’s attacks on Mitt Romney, and vice versa, during the nomination process had been particularly vitriolic… the idea that it was all in good clean respectable fun in the name of competition is, well…

      • nachoproblem says:

        I don’t know how much you followed the primaries (who can blame you for not?), but those two were fighting to the death in the South. It was nothing but personal, they both spent a mountain of money on ads, and I don’t recall if they touched on policy even once.

        FROM HELL’S HEART I STAB AT THEE = We look forward to working with them. Shep states the obvious, politics are weird.

  11. William Owen says:

    That is awesome. Politicians are mutants and it scares the shit out of me they get to make decisions on how to feed themselves let alone about people’s lives.

  12. Shep NAILED it!! I think I found my newest ring tone!

    Classic. I love to see glimpses of mainstream media news anchors losing it.
