Gawker called FOX News anchor Shepard Smith out in a post yesterday for a gin-fueled tantrum at a bar in NYC's Chelsea neighborhood last March, further shattering Smith's glass closet with a nugget dropped in the middle of its item:
Smith had arrived earlier that night with a straight couple and his own regular date, a muscular 6-foot-2 30-something white male, whom Bathtub Gin employees refer to as “his boyfriend.” Like most other nights—Smith frequents the bar, located behind a coffee shop on 9th Avenue, about once a week—the anchor’s attention fell on his date. According to Minskova and one other source, who have seen Smith and his date drink there on multiple occasions, the couple frequently holds hands and rests them in each others’ laps under the table. Nobody we spoke with, including several Fox insiders, knew the name of Smith's date.
Fox News Reporters Claim Vicious Anti-Gay Hate Group is a 'Well-Respected Christian Ministry': VIDEO
On Fox & Friends on Tuesday, reporter Todd Starnes critiqued a military training session on domestic hate groups which included the American Family Association (AFA) alongside the KKK, neo-Nazis, and the Nation of Islam.
Starnes referred to the training as "anti-Christian activity" and claimed it represented increasingly hostile military environment for Christian service members. The other reporters, along with Starnes, said the AFA's anti-gay marriage beliefs were the sole reason for its inclusion in the hate group training.
South Florida Gay News points out the reality:
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated AFA as a hate group for promoting anti-gay attacks that harm individuals and threaten human rights.
Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association’s unofficial spokesman and the group’s director of issues analysis, has previously called on the government to prohibit mosques from being built anywhere in the United States, suggested “the most compassionate thing” America can do is deport all Muslims, and wrote that “gay sex is a form of domestic terrorism.”
The American Family Association has also enthusiastically endorsed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s draconian anti-gay laws, with Fischer stating that the country isn’t being homophobic but “homorealistic.”
The AFA also touts "reparative therapy" for gay people, believes in punishment for homosexual sex, and has linked homosexuality as a cause of the Holocaust.

Last night, after the House voted to reopen the government, a House Stenographer named Dianne Reidy hijacked the House microphone andwent nuts, launching into a tirade about Freemasons and God before being dragged out by security.
Said Reidy: "He [God] will not be mocked. The greatest deception here is that this is not one nation under God. It never was. It would not have been. The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God. Praise be to Jesus."
This morning FOX & Friends' hosts Steve Doocy and Elisabeth Hasselbeck made the laughable suggestion that Reidy is being persecuted for her religion.

In a Fox News appearance today, Tea Party leader Michele Bachmann (R-MN) opted for an upbeat and infuriating message about her GOP compatriots' solidarity and strength during the messy government shutdown still underway.
"We're really very energized today, we're very strong," she assured the anchors. "This is about the happiest I've seen members in a long time because we see that we're starting to win this dialogue on a national level." Jon Stewart (and presumably many others) might just disagree.

But after taking down all the selfish right-wing bloviating on the government shutdown there's only one phrase that adequately conveys his disgust: "F--k you".
