Shepard Smith Still Fox’s Lonely Voice of Reason

More video evidence that Fox News’ Shepard Smith dances to the beat of his own drummer, taking his own network to task — among others — for its role in the Shirley Sherrod mess.

Still, the rest of Fox News has yet to adequately address its frequent reliance on the discredited Andrew Breitbart as a source, and would do its credibility good to follow Smith’s lead and distance itself from him. Not that I’d suggest holding your breath waiting for that to happen. Once you’re a member in good standing of the barking pundit ranks, it’s hard to get evicted permanently.

Granted, all of the cable news nets look foolish, having created an “Act right now!” culture in response to every scandal, then questioning why the current administration would trust them to carry accurate information.
