If there is anyone who didn't dislike thus weasel already, this may change your mind.

Note how the ComPost is making him out to be the new Walter Cronkite who gave his opinion on Viet Nam (and became a hero to the left).

‘Lie after lie after lie’: Fox News’s Shepard Smith has a Cronkite moment on Russia

By Aaron Blake July 14 at 5:41 PM

Between its “Fox and Friends” morning show and Sean Hannity at night, Fox News has become a haven for those who think this whole Russia thing is nonsense. On Friday morning, Steve Doocy even declared that “the Russia story is starting to fall apart.”

But on Friday afternoon, a Fox host went off on the Trump administration's handling of Russia in a way we've rarely seen.

Shepard Smith is no stranger to challenging the administration and occasionally launching into personal editorials — including one about refugees back in 2015. But on Friday afternoon, he took it a step further, repeatedly accusing the administration of lying, deception and a coverup.

After reporting that there appeared to be more people in that meeting with Russian lawyer than previously acknowledged, Smith had either a Howard Beale or a Walter Cronkite moment, depending on your perspective, and he lit into the White House.

Here's the transcript:

We’re still not clean on this, Chris [Wallace]. If there’s nothing there — and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothingburger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower? If all of that, why all these lies? Why is it lie after lie after lie? If you clean, come on clean, you know? My grandmother used to say when first we practice to — Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling. And there are still people who are out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look around and go, Where are we, and why are we getting told all these lies?

Most journalists are reluctant to use the L-word — “lie.” This blog has covered the administration's contradictory claims and misleading statistics regularly, but calling something a lie implies you know that it was intended to deceive.

An exasperated Smith had clearly had enough of dancing around that word on Friday afternoon.

Shep Smith is one of the absolute worst on TV nowadays. There are few that I despise more.

Who the hell is shepard smith?

Just kidding. I know who he is. IMO, he is angling for title to compete with that kelly woman. Hoping for one of those super generous contracts with the commie news network. Right where he belongs.

To be fair, Obama promised the most transparent and honest administration. So there was no dirt for the liberal media to uncover/report. Wink

Or, he could stuff it up his butt.

I don't like Shepard Smith either. But when I see the replies attack the messenger rather than discredit the message; well, that's stooping the Democrat level. We are better than this. (Now attack me.)

I saw it live unfortunately. My first thought is that he is bucking for a contract at CNN. He has always grated on my nerves. Time for him to go...

Ok I will attack you. I think you are wrong. We should attack the message and the messenger. Playing it straight, above board, civilized, etc doesn't work in today's 24 hour left wing news stream and social media regurgitation.

President Trump won and will continue so because he dropped the old rule book that wasn't working. Repeat that for effect. It wasn't working.

I hate their tactics and I hate using their tactics. However, I hate the direction America was heading when they were driving the ship.

He thinks way too much of himself, much like the Kelly woman. While I watch Fox some, I haven't been able to tolerate watching this 'reporter' in a loooong time.

What nonsense are you going on about? Queer boy Shep is not simply a messenger reading the news. He editorializes everything he reports. Everything. He's a no good news man, and I wish he were kicked off the air. He believes his opinions on these matters are superior to ours and that we should just shut up and take it as gospel. I despise this phony.

Shemp couldn't state the current time without trying to spin it.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

The old adage, "Don't attack the messenger" comes from a time when spoiled rotten royalty members would take out their anger to hearing negative news on the messenger.

This is NOT what's happening here. What IS happening here is a flaming Liberal using a FALSE message to try and smear a good guy.

Surely you can see the difference. Now, forgive yourself, do some kind of penitence, and quit confusing old metaphors. Big Grin
