´The deception is mind-boggling´: Fox
News anchor Shep Smith in blistering
attack on Donald Jr and the Trump
administration´s ´lies´ about Russia

Daily Mail [UK], by Ariel Zilber

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/15/2017 11:40:03 AM

Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith on Friday assailed the ´mind-boggling deception´ by the Trump administration in explaining its role in the ongoing Russia investigation. In a segment with his network colleague Chris Wallace, Smith was offering commentary about the latest revelations in the unfolding scandal. He did not hold back when he spoke about the revelations that President Donald Trump´s son, Donald Trump Jr, failed to disclose the fact that there were more participants in his June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American dual national and former Soviet spy

Comments:
Again I was working in the kitchen and had not changed the channel from FNC when that flaming maniac Shemp came on. He is totally unhinged and is no longer hiding the fact that he hates Trump. His sneering and open contempt for Trump and everyone around him is appalling. I sure don´t remember him so aghast over the lawless, criminal acts of Obama or Clinton.

Contd. Obviously missing from his reportage is any mention of the fact that Obama, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, the Democrats, Clinton and Fusion GPS are intricately involved in this sordid mess. He is allegedly supposed to report the news.

Until he is designated as a commentator like Sean Hannity he needs to shut up and report the facts. I can´t stand that despicable little crapweasel. Roger Ailes, who he supposedly was so very fond of, must be spinning in his grave over his reprehensible behavior. The Murdoch sons must be beaming with joy.

I only scanned about 100 of the comments, but it is very interesting to note that the majority of them are against the pathetic Shemp and the Democrats. That´s good to see.

And this is why I no longer watch any television news channel. Information on the web is quicker and less tainted by these so-called journalists.
Fox News, I am so done with you. You´re no different than CNN, MSNBC, or any one else.

Shep comes on, the channel changes. I will not watch the piece of garbage, the same as I will not watch MSNBC, CBS, NBC, PBS, ABC.

There is absolutely no point in intentionally listening to Pravda spew lies, and I will not subject myself to it. I despise Shep, and have since his incompetent, foolish, stupid reporting stint at Katrina. Before that he was barely tolerable. He is totally intolerable now.

The evening program that has Meghan McCain as a cohost .... The talk was about all the stuff going on with fusiongps,etc but no one was brave or smart enough to bring the John McCain facts up while Meghan was sitting there which did not sit well with me at all. It looked like they were covering and protecting her. I was especially surprised at Kimberly who usually doesn´t shy away from any topic. So that bunch has me wondering but I don´t wonder about Shamp at all!!!!

I don´t watch this POS at all. I may see a few seconds when I turn my TV on because Fox is my default setting. I gave up on him during Katrina when he acted like the whiny leftwing loon he is by berating a female reporter from another outlet because she had taken his "parking spot". Typical snowflake. Why is he still seen on Fox?

Hey Shemp, take some time off. You used to be at the top of your craft but something happened along the way. It´s Gay Pride Week in San Diego right now. Go do your thing and think about things that are really important. Politics is not your thing. Maybe your buddy Joe The Moaning Schmoe might be there in disguise if he can get away from his ball and chain for a few days. But it´s time to take a break and rethink things. Hatred and resentments are the poison you are taking hoping they die.

Well, he sure found a like minded friend in Wallace . They both hate Trump . He should have included Stywalt in their conversation, he´s also a Trump hater. Shep knows Fox will protect him no matter what he says or does. Megyn McCain should be fired she´s a conflict of interest.

some years ago Roger Ailes made Shemp Managing Editor and Director of the Breaking News Division at FNC. That came along with the fancy schmancy news deck. At that point we also began to see a marked difference in Shemp´s attitude and delivery.

And now we barely ever watch FNC any more. some of the early a.m. programming, occasionally Outnumbered. Little else unless there´s BIG NEWS HAPPENING SOMEWHERE!!!!!!

Then we´ll turn off HGTV or DIY and turn on news. Otherwise, meh...

S. Smith is not presenting news and should be classified as a editorialist by his channel.
He is offering either his opinion or the opinion of management who he works for; either way, there is a biased agenda and there are few facts presented. An opinion offered as news is FAKE NEWS.

Shepard (far left) comes on at 12pm Pacific and so does Liz Clayman (left) on FN Business. He should be on MSNBC and she should be on CNBC.

It should be straight news during the day and not left wing opinion. I used to try and turn on FNC while I ate my lunch. It was Shepard that began the hideous Rock ´n Roll News. Rock music playing while he "supposedly" read the news. I hated it.

Fox has decided they are giving up on a "Fair and Balanced" approach. I guess, like the RINOs, they´re looking for a new base. Fine. That was a corporate decision and it worked, I can say they´ve lost me. Fox used to be the one port in the storm. Aside from Bret Baier and a couple others, we are now left with far, far left, far left and left slants as choices for cable news. The opinion shows are different and some are entertaining.

I now get my news on the internet and haven´t looked back since. Also, I don´t have to listen to leftists read it to me.

So many ´journolists´ are going to have egg all over their faces over this deception which is clearly overblown to keep our minds off the corruption of Hitlery Clinton, hoping we will all just forget about the whole rigged game.

Using her office to do business for Clinton, Ind. Influence peddling from mooooslim countries who kill homosexuals while trying to defend it here in the US. Allowing young women and girls to be sold into sexual slavery while purportedly STANDING UP for women?

If that isn´t incongruous with taking tainted, dirty money I don´t know what is.

In the past 12 months I have met easily 1,000 people, exchanged thousands of emails, attended more that 150 meetings lasting at least one hour each, given more than six dozen speeches before audiences of up to 500, held a translated press conference in a foreign country attended by television, radio and print outlets, given media interviews at home and have made and received countless phone calls. That is a lot of detail to remember, and I do not claim to recall it all. But if my senior staff and I had had a meeting with two people and a Russian interpreter pushing purportedly scandalous intel, I would remember it pretty clearly.

And this is why I always skip the 3-4 p.m. Shep News on Fox during the week---the man can´t restrain himself (although he peppers his "straight news" with little slings and arrows, nothing like his blast with Wallace.) The man has no idea what "mind boggling deception" is, obviously. E.G. Lynch on the tarmac, Rice on 4 networks re: Benghazi, Bill not having relations with that women, Miss Lewinsky. None of that bothered ole Shep. I figure Murdoch kept Smith on to retain the fair and balanced mantle......but I don´t have to watch him. I watch Cavuto right afterward. Now THERE is fair and balanced.

Not fair---or helpful-----to comment on Shep´s predilections (and when I said STRAIGHT news I meant straight, not Shep) as that gets us nowhere. I just can´t stand his snide inserts re "straight" news, and to be honest, I haven´t watched Fox News Sunday in years either.........no matter how much soup Mrs. Douglas pushes, her husband too often shows his true face on camera when he thinks nobody is looking---and I don´t want to bother with that. The Murdoch boys, and their strong wives, are making their mark AND DON´T SEEM TO KNOW THEY CAN BE REPLACED. Thank God for Tucker Carlson, Hannity, Cavuto and Martha at 7 p.m. or I would be outta there. Also Outnumbered.

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump´s remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet.

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself
