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.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
