Smith announced he is leaving the network today.

Fox News announced today that host and commentator Shephard Smith will be leaving their airwaves effective immediately, as his show on Friday afternoon will be his last on the network.

Smith will no longer be chief news anchor on the network, and his former 3PM weekday show, “Shepard Smith Reporting,” will be replaced by different anchors until a permanent replacement is announced.

Smith had emerged as one of the strongest critics of President Donald Trump on the network, often joining with judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano to attack the Commander-in-Chief.

He was recently ordered to stand down by the network after a public rift developed between Smith and prime-time ratings king Tucker Carlson:

Liberal Fox News daytime host Shepard Smith has been ordered by channel management to back down Thursday after a heated feud with the station’s flagship host, Tucker Carlson, according to Vanity Fair.

Smith had been making sanctimonious stabs at Carlson, evidently taking offense to a guest(President Trump’s former lawyer, Joe DiGenova) who had referred to Andrew Napolitano as a “fool.” It’s unclear why such mild and slightly heated rhetoric was enough to send Smith into a conniption, but he referred to Tucker as “repugnant” for declining to defend Napolitano.

Not one to take holier-than-thou lectures from an elitist liberal who somehow has remained a mainstay at Fox despite holding political positions that one might expect to see at CNN or MSNBC, Tucker fired back. Carlson made it clear Smith was speaking as a liberal partisan, as opposed to a supposedly neutral spectator.

Smith appeared ready to continue agitating the inter-network feud before being shut down on the matter by Fox management. Senior Fox News executives are said to have threatened the progressive infiltrator with termination if he continues to wage a campaign against Tucker.

It’s not as if Carlson wouldn’t be willing to expose Smith’s record as an unreliable and dishonest Democratic partisan if he so desired. The midday presenter is beloved by progressives who can’t stomach Fox unless he’s presenting his preferred brand of stealth narrative “journalism.”

But Fox viewers deserve better than a deceptive liberal who embraces the notion of being an objectively neutral journalist. Carlson doesn’t make such a claim, openly admitting his preferred political positions and generally eschewing the term “journalist.”

Shepard Smith will supposedly face termination if he continues tarnishing his network’s brand in the eyes of its viewers. But it’s more than likely there will be a cushy, six-figure spot waiting for him at CNN and MSNBC should he be given the boot, where he’ll be free to call conservatives racist endlessly and demand Trump’s impeachment to the sounds of liberal applause.

Fox News, which has been trending an anti-Trump direction for months now, has now lost its top voice against the President. Perhaps Fox News is finally releasing that they will lose significant marketshare if they serve globalism and not their overwhelmingly pro-Trump audience.
