    The fact that he had his views and spoke freely against the conservative or Republican line shows you that for as long has been at fox doing this that fox is alot more fair and balanced than MSNBC. Where on MSNBC does a conservative or Republican have their own hour or hours of broadcast. No where.

    Barr likely gave Murdoch a few hints about what's going to drop in the Huber, Horowitz & Durham investigations at their 10/9/19 meeting.
    Shep likely realized he best get gone & schlep his RINO Neo-Con never Trump spin to one of the never Trump NPC network like AB/CN/NB/MSNPC.

    No one gets it. Smith and all these so called news anchors, whether on Fox or CNN, are ACTORS reading a script, with directors and producers like any other TV show. There is no News anymore, it’s all editorial and activism. It’s entertainment designed to get our emotions boiling and keep us divided. It’s a TV show disguised as News. Fox or CNN, a football game, my team against yours. Fox is fake too, like CNN.

    Because Trump is the lowest IQ president in American history, he can't even comprehend that news and journalists should be unbiased. He feels that they should be propaganda outlets, repeating his DERANGED and patently FALSE conspiracy theories. Sigh…

    Make no mistake: Smith has no integrity. He "resigned" because he was going to fired. If he had any decency, he never would have been on Fox in the first place.

    He heavily biased the news for over 20 years, which is a kind of deeply damaging form of disinformation (more insidious than outright disinformation because it can, on the surface, seem legitimate…so much so that even many moderates and liberals/progressives fall for it as evidenced in these comments) and, more than that, helped give legitimacy to a far-right political organization masquerading as a news outlet. And that organization has done irreparable damage to the US and world with its constant decades long spewing of hate, anger, fear, and even calls for violence against "the other".

    He was no "objective conservative journalist" but a mere propaganda puppet. If he had any decency, or wish to report news honestly, he would have left Fox long ago…and that he stayed so long with all that has been going on between Fox and 45*, literally Fox being his state media, dramatically shows how empty of a person he is.

    If he wants to finally do some good in this world, he can write/speak on current events with some objectivity from a conservative point of view and start to undo a bit of the damage he's done. But as he failed to do this for so long, I doubt he will redeem himself in the future. I hope he does so for his sake; being a failed person is a waste of this one and only life.

    Shep Smith going away should mean the word news going away from Fox News. I applaud Smith's courage. It's easy to tell the truth in a great environment for real journalism, it must be awful to do so in the Fox News propaganda network. I really hope one of the other network gives Shep Smith the kind of show someone deserves for standing up for the truth in such an anti truth environment.

    Many homosexuals at FOX have developed more mental illness (anxiety, anger, hate, delusions, etc) since Trump had banned transgenders from the military and refused to promote other homosexual agendas. The mental illness affected other homosexuals at FOX, as well, like Andrew Napolitano.

    Shepard Smith is pathetic and I’m glad to see this liberal tool leave the network. All these networks are basically the same and it’s good to see one network (FOX) stand with the people of this country. Neil is also a liberal puppet and I can only hope he’s gone soon as well. Trump will NEVER lose the core audience of FOX, we’re not R puppets, we’re proud American nationalist that love this great country and all people. TRUMP 2020. I hope you’re ready for 4 more years of greatness because it’s 💯 coming and there’s nothing you can do to stop it

    Why does FOX continue to dominate the ratings? More viewers duh!

    If the majority of Americans appose the current administration and lean towards the left then why don't the other networks do better?

    Why do more Americans watch FOX? Probably has something to do with their unbiased political stance. Especially now since Sam has decided to leave!

    So to all of the trolls who might comment…… yawn and bring on the madcow nation!

    Not seeing Shep makes us very sad but leaving Fox sounds like Fox would never be a truth-reporting news media. Fox is literally becoming a Trump Hoax Fox animal, only reporting misleading facts to disseminate one-way views always in favor for Trump, not reporting all fully facts. Carlson and Hannity are despicable the most. We can get that Barr met with Fox top to probably ask Fox to promote Trump-favored reporting.
