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.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
