  4. Based on what I saw at Equality Matters, it boggles my mind that he is still employed by Faux News.

  6. I like Shep because his eyes can pull off two different shades of eye shadow.

  10. I really couldn't hear him, because my gaydar was making so much damn noise.

  11. SS is the (previous) AC of Faux News - an open secret.

  14. Come on, Shep - leave the dark side. Get a job @ MSNBC or CNN

  15. Have always been a fan of Shep Smith. He is not afraid of his bosses or their minions. Go SHEP !!

  16. He sounds like a voice of reason in a sea of Fox Wing nuts.

  17. A Fox in Sheep clothing.

    Although I abhor those who flip-flop after an obvious and tremendous loss, for the ones working for the likes of Fox "News", I always try to think "Baby steps here". We need to encourage those baby steps, and not act like the other side with snide and condemnation by exodus.

  18. Some of the women there are pro-gay too.

  19. Lil' Canadian, AKA Little Kiwi protesting Faux News 'rhetoric'? Oh, the irony. Lil' K also has righteous indignation over sleazy tactics used by the far right, Republicans, you name it, which is understandable coming from someone who uses the lowest and sleaziest tactics himself. Kind of like communist whining about fascists or vice-versa, when both have A LOT more in common with each other than they'd like to publicly admit.

  20. By offering a fair and balanced view, Shepard Smith's role is to ensure that any disillusioned Fox viewers (especially after the Karl Rove on-air debacle) will stay tuned to the news network before they start "snapping out of it" and see Fox for what it really is.

  21. Shep hasn't been let go becuase he's been there a long, long time and he knows a lot of dirt about FOX noise. It would be fun though to watch the drama between FOX and their viewers if Shep officially came out. For that reason alone I hope he does.

  22. @Jonathan: LOL You've given me hope. I thought I had to recant my model about Faux News being a hermetically closed alternate universe. You've just told me that Smith is a mole and not a member of it. Thanks!

  23. hey ratbastard, you should write to fox news about those "blacks" that "killed your dad"

    they love to run fabricated stories without fact-checking 'em. the more racist and idiotic the better.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Nov 11, 2012 1:19:20 PM

  24. Can you imagine Faux pulling their collective heads outta their asses and putting the "Good Sheppard" in a equality hour with Megan Kelley? I'd get just as excited as seeing Maddow:)
