CNN could be the next fit for recently-unemployed liberal media commentator Shepard Smith, judging from a comment from the network’s president, fake news kingpin Jeff Zucker.
Zucker said he would be “open” to hiring Smith, according to reporting from Variety.
The CNN boss was speaking at an internal company event, and apparently went on a lengthy diatribe bashing Smith’s former network, Fox News.
Zucker said that he thinks Smith is a “great journalist,” a compliment from a fake news kingpin that reflects very poorly on Smith’s journalistic integrity.
Shepard Smith announced his sudden departure from Fox on-air earlier this month after a feud with America First evening host Tucker Carlson. Smith had taken his frequent liberal commentary across an inter-network line when he bashed Carlson for a guest’s remark on his show; Carlson fired back, and before Smith could take the feud further he was ordered to be silent by Fox management.
Smith went on to quit Fox a few days after.
Smith had alienated much of the traditional Fox audiences with his consistent liberal editorializing, taking on a partisan narrative one might expect to hear from a liberal mainstream media outlet such as MSNBC.
Should he be hired by CNN, it’s possible the liberal elitist would take his liberal commentary to the next level, openly lashing out at Fox’s audience and traditionally minded Americans.
Smith’s departure opens up new opportunities for Fox to reconnect with its audience, who has become increasingly alienated from the network in past months due to the growing trend of progressive content on the channel. Smith was being paid a whopping 15 million a year by Fox, an unnecessary and colossal waste of resources that is now available to fund new journalists and coverage that could prove far more insightful to Fox viewers than Smith’s predictable liberal rants.
FAKE NEWS: Media Publishes Disgustingly Mischaracterized Articles on the Death of Kristi Noem’s Grandmother to Attack Her COVID-19 Approach
The fake news media will stoop to any low to attack conservatives.
On Tuesday the Daily Beast published a horrifically misleading story about the death of South Dakota governor Kristi Noem’s grandmother, which was later picked up by sites like Business Insider and MSN.
Daily Beast “Special Correspondent” Michael Daly wrote in a piece titled “Anti-Mask Guv’s Grandmother Died in Nursing Home Ravaged by COVID” that despite the death of Governor Noem’s grandmother, 98-year-old Aldys Arnold, Noem “continues to downplay the virus, refuse a mask mandate, and ignore the terrible price her state is paying.”
Keep in mind that the primary objective here is not to report Arnold’s death, but to lambast Noem’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and in a sense blame her for her death.
That is despicable enough in itself, but what makes it worse is that Noem’s grandmother likely didn’t even die from COVID. Daly tells us in the second paragraph of his story that, according to Noem’s office, Arnold tested negative for the virus and that no cause of death was given.
12 out of the 13 deaths at that nursing home between November 14 and November 28 were “COVID-related”—the one exception being Aldys Arnold.
To add fuel to the fire, Business Insider writer Kelly McLaughlin ran her story with the exact same characterization as The Daily Beast’s, with a duplicate version of her article also appearing in MSN.
This is the same fake news media that reluctantly covered—or outright ignored—reports of Democratic governors stuffing COVID patients into nursing homes back in the spring. When we say that the fake news media is the enemy of the people, we wholeheartedly mean it.
