Anchor Shepard Smith exited Fox News after being sick of clashing with his primetime colleagues, sources claim. Smith, who has been the network's most vocal critic of President Trump, requested a way out of his $15million a year contract after growing tired of being attacked by other hosts, a Fox insider tells the Daily Beast. Most recently, Smith was openly mocked by Tucker Carlson on his show for calling an attack on one their colleagues 'repugnant.'


I could put up with a lot of abuse for $15 million per year.

Let me get this straight, Shep. You started the rhubarb with the conservative night crew, and now you take a powder when they call you out. You're nothing but a whiny little beotch.

Now if they would eliminate juan Williams maybe I wouldn’t have to listen to anybody being stupid on fox other than d brazier and other dim operatives. By the juan should get an oscar for his performance evincing how deeply hurt and shocked he was when trump called the awol hunter bi.den a loser. Hey give me all the money he got and trump is welcome to call me a loser and it would be true- even though i, unlike biden, wouldn’t have sold out my country.

To OP: That was a $15M multi-year contract, not $15M/year which would have been an outrage. As for Shep, I wish I could say I won't miss him, because you can't miss what you've never seen.

Hmmm. Shep gets the axe one day after Barr visits Murdoch. Trump didn't like it when Judge Nap said he'd broken the law and was guilty. Neither did I. I'm with #3. I am on viewer who flips channels when mouth foaming Juan is on the show.

Smith was supposed to be doing straight news, but he wasn't. He was inserting his liberal opinions. That's why he got called out by the OPINION hosts on in prime time. If he wanted to do liberal opinion he should have asked for his own show properly labeled. Then see who watched. He will probably end up at MSNBC where he will fit right in.

This is the Daily Mail, a useless, liberal rag that pushes sympathy for all things liberal and whose association with the truth is minimal at best. Take anything that comes out of the DM with a hefty dose of suspicion or downright disdain.

The little twit could dish out the tongue lashings but couldn’t take one. Good riddance. I quit watching him after his pearl clutching hysteria during Katrina. (there’s a reason he lost his evening time slot. Wish I’d been a fly on the wall when that happened.) So pompous and self-righteous. Intolerable. PS: The effusive praise from his colleagues was a bit thick also. Couldn’t help but smirk when I read them.

He was not an anchor. He was a news reader whose job it was to report on breaking news. He was not supposed to be an editorial opinion reporter. He was not supposed to attack his colleagues on the network who might have expressed opposing opinions. Opinion was not supposed to be his thing. Just the facts, Shep. He couldn’t pull that off. Go home and pound your pillow...

Shepards boyfriend is a Fox Business producer, I think Shep leaving has more to do with this than anything else, particularly with all the male/female partnering issues over the last couple of years.. Shep has definitely been more outspoken with his liberal opinions in recent months, and how he handle Nap was out of character. Megyn went left before she left, it opens up more opportunities, so he adopted that strategy too.

I think they have been grooming Leland Vitert for this spot for some time. Vitert is handsome, smart, and hates Trump as much as Smith. He has spent enough time doing stand ups in the field for Fox to make him pass for a journalist. If they were smart they would give this spot to Steve Hilton or Bill Hemmer but I don't think they're are trying to be smart, they are trying to pull in more liberals during the day when more women are watching. Handsome and liberal sounds like a winner to the suits at Fox.

Smith is an opinion columnist, not a journalist. Everything Trump has said in the last three years, Smith has immediately opened his mouth to discredit him. That's not journalism. Then when Nappy, the parking ticket judge from New Jersey, told us Trump was breaking the law by doing his job investigating government corruption, Smith started to foam at the mouth. With his ratings in the toilet, that was enough for Fox. Shep asked to leave without a bootprint on his butt. Fox graciously let him go. There will be book with a big advance that no one will read. Whoopi will ask searching questions. Here is the deal, folks: the USA is aging. More and more people are growing into being Republicans. Can you imaging what Trump is going to accomplish with Congressional support? Once the Insane Clown Posse is out of power, imagine what we can accomplish together.

A ballot measure to increase state revenue, Proposition CC, went down to strong defeat. A final count is not yet available, but Colorado Public Radio reports, "The measure was trailing by more than 100,000 votes when the AP called it shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday."

Given today’s downward cultural spiral, it’s disturbing but not surprising that the makers of a thoughtful new documentary about Jordan Peterson are having a hard time finding somewhere to show their film. Many mainstream and independent cinemas have refused to screen it because they’re “fearful of controversy” or “morally concerned.” One theater in Toronto cancelled a week-long showing after some of the staff “took issue with it.” A theater in Brooklyn cancelled a second screening, despite the fact that the first sold out and received good reviews, “because some staff were offended . . . and felt uncomfortable.”

As I have said before, I think the claim that President Trump’s phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine somehow constitutes an impeachable offense is ridiculous. But impeachment is a political act, not a legal one, and the Democrats’ motives are entirely political. They think that impeaching President Trump will cast a pall of discredit over him and weaken his chances for re-election in 2020. I think that calculation is probably right. We will see a great deal of impeachment-related poll data in the months to come, but this early survey, reported in the New York Post, suggests that the Democrats are on the right track:  Headline corrected*

Joe Biden is out pulling rank. In response to a little priest in South Carolina denying him Holy Communion for advocating pro-abortion positions inconsistent with Church teaching, the former vice president and Democratic Party presidential frontrunner made it clear he didn't deal with pipsqueaks. Asked about the incident, Lifesite News reported Biden's response: “It’s not a position that I’ve found anywhere else, including from the Holy Father, who gives me Communion.” So instead of thinking about the priest's position and offering some kind of contemplative thought, Biden declared it was all O.K. to be advocating for abortion from his position,

Sea level rise is set to challenge human civilization for centuries to come, even if internationally agreed climate goals are met and planet-warming emissions are then immediately eliminated, researchers have found. The lag time between rising global temperatures and the knock-on impact of coastal inundation means that the world will be dealing with ever-rising sea levels into the 2300s, regardless of prompt action to address the climate crisis, according to the new study. Even if governments meet their commitments from the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement, the first 15-year period of the deal will still result in enough emissions

The announcement last Thursday that popular veteran Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge would be leaving the channel the following day – and moving to a new job as Senior Investigative Correspondent at CBS News later this month – took both viewers and media watchers by complete surprise. On the heels of the declaration three weeks earlier by prominent Fox News Channel news host Shepard Smith during his afternoon program that he would be leaving the channel that same day, the news about Herridge occasioned an immediate wealth of wild speculation by pundits weighing in with their opinions about what her departure means for the future of Fox News.

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated.
