In the wake of liberal newscaster Shepard Smith’s departure from Fox News, it’s been revealed by none other than CNN that the longtime Fox host has been raking in an annual whopping salary of $15 million.
Fake news presenter Brian Stelter reported Shepard’s annual salary information on Saturday. While Stelter’s hardly a reliable narrator, it’s doubtful he would make up information that certainly makes the rogue former Fox host appear in a negative light.

It’s hard to imagine Fox’s massive payments to Smith as anything other than a massive waste of resources. For $15 million, Fox could easily afford to hire dozens of new up-and-coming journalists and cover many more elements of national politics often left forgotten.
Smith has been with Fox since 1996, and has likely made hundreds of millions of dollars during his lengthy tenure as a midday news reporter, if he’s made such a whopping salary for any length of time.
He quit his position at the network after an inter-channel feud with ratings kingpin and America First host Tucker Carlson, having been rebuked for his sniping against Carlson by Fox management.
Smith had already alienated much of Fox’s traditional conservative audience, embracing an editorial perspective many would expect to see at a liberal mainstream media outlet such as CNN or MSNBC. It’s likely the anti-Trump biased reporter will find himself re-hired as a host at the aforementioned within the next few months, free to propagate a progressive narrative to his heart’s content.
Fortunately, it appears his departure will open up a sizable amount of Fox resources that can be put to use investing in real reporting and newsworthy content.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders
The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.
The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.
The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:
U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.
“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”
… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.
Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.
Media: Jim @Acosta to @wolfblitzer: "A source present for this briefing … said the information relayed to lawmakers made it clear #Russia has already begun interfering in the 2020 election … Asked whether the information presented was alarming,' the source said, 'Very.'" pic.twitter.com/CFmcjI9d2w

So Russia wants a race between Sanders and Trump. They probably want Tulsi Gabbard as Bernie’s running mate. And no question they will help Moscow Mitch get re-elected. What a monumental mess Trump has made of America! He will let this happen. Putin’s USA. https://t.co/WiNtTOYK4T

So @BernieSanders was told by U.S. government officials that Russia has been working to help him win the Democratic primary, and he said NOTHING publicly??? This is OUTRAGEOUS! How is it any different than what Trump has done?? 😠

This should not be a surprise to anyone, is consistent with their enduring strategy & mirrors the analysis of @FPRI #FIE2020 team “Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign” https://t.co/eO0DocweEE

.@BernieSanders says he was briefed by federal officials one month ago that Russia was boosting his campaign.
Why did he never tell the American people? pic.twitter.com/xqG7aDWRmk

As I reported in 2016, Russian state media had two candidates they were rooting for: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. They were the candidates that, in the Kremlin's view, would 1) create the most chaos in the establishment, thereby weakening the U.S., 2) be friendlier to Russia.

And why didn’t Bernie Sanders tell us a month ago that Russia was trying to help his campaign? Did we not have a right to know this?
Or to know about his heart attack?
Or to see his medical records?
Or to see his tax returns that he hid for four years?
See a trend? https://t.co/zmLVrvKnc4

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.
“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.
Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.
“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.
The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
