He’d been with FNC since its inception in 1996
This is what we call “principles.” They used to be a big deal from 2009-2016, but they’ve since become a bit less important to some folks. Looks like Shep still has some intact.
I hope he writes a book.
Fired?? I read today that Atty. Gen. Barr just met with Rupert Murdoch privately in his home, now all of a sudden one of Fox’s harshest critics of this administration abruptly quits? Interesting.
Glad to see this. It’ll put a blight on those who keep flailing that Fox is “fair and balanced.” The sudden and quick headline of this leaves a lot of questions.
I can only assume this will just push a Fox deeper into opinion “news”. So much of their airtime is already devoted to it, I guess they just don’t care anymore.
A complete opinion news channel is not good for their brand.
Anyone still remember his Jennifer Lopez flub in 2002 ? I can’t really link to it here but it’s pretty hilarious
One of the few voices that make Fox anything resembling a news source leaves. Will the network take this as a sign they have become little more than Trump propagandists? Probably not.
I don’t know if people know the difference anymore.
I don’t believe he quit.
I’m interested in finding out whether he was fired, or quit in disgust.
I’m going with the latter. He seemed at peace with it from the sendoff I watched.
They don’t. It’s very clear from a lot of stuff we see in social media. They really don’t.
So…what’s Megan Kelly doing these days?
Living off her NBC contract.
If he quit because something else is of interest to him then I wish him well.
If there is something else going on, the days to come will reveal it. We can create a thread, debate about it and then forget it mattered a week later.
