As someone who isn’t a big fan of Fox, it’s strange when I see clips of Shep Smith like the one I saw today of him tearing apart Trump’s claim of Mueller interfering in the midterms. With all the opposite commentary coming from the administration, Trump supporters and other Fox hosts, this has a couple of significances. You can’t call it being fair and balanced since he appears to be about the only one consistently critical. But it is a brilliant strategy by Fox to keep him in the mix because it slides a bit of the argument that Fox is diehard Republican (though I’ve seen isolated comments here in the past and elsewhere that he should be dumped).
So my question for anyone reading this is whether you are a fan of Fox or not what does he bring to the Fox News mix? Is he serious or just entertainment? I lean to the latter. For me, it’s hard to take him that seriously when so much of the commentary is turned the other way.
