Shepard Smith says goodbye to Fox News


>>Bret: A PERSONAL MOMENT NOW. GATHERING AND REPORTING THE NEWS HAS BEEN MY LAST WORK. 33 YEARS, THE PAST 23 RIGHT HERE, SINCE THE DAY WE LAUNCHED FOX NEWS CHANNEL IN 1996. THE OPPORTUNITIES AFFORDED THIS GUY FROM SMALL-TOWN MISSISSIPPI. FOX NEWS HAS ALLOWED ME TO TRAVEL THE WORLD GATHERING THE FACTS OF THE DAY FOR YOU. AT COLUMBINE, KATRINA, IRAQ, ISRAEL, LEBANON, 9/11, AND EVERY LIFE ALTERING EVENT ALONG THE WAY. I HAVE MET LEADERS, HEROES, AND VICTIMS OF ALL STRIDES. I’VE WITNESSED AND REPORTED ON THE EVENTS THAT SHAPED OUR REALITY. TOGETHER WITH MY COLLEAGUES WE HAVE WRITTEN A FIRST DRAFT OF HISTORY AND ENDEAVORED TO DELIVER IT TO YOU WHILE SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOR IT IN CONTEXT AND WITH PERSPECTIVE. I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. FOR HANDING ME THE BREAKING NEWS RAINES IS MANAGING AT HER, SENIOR CORRESPONDENT, AND CHIEF NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOK NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWO, NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOI NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWON NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOT NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOA NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOK NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOU NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOL NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOA NEWS ANCHOR FOR THIS NEWS NETWOD HUMBLED. I’VE WORKED WITH THE MOST TALENTED, DEDICATED, AND FOCUS PROFESSIONALS I’VE EVER KNOWN. THEY HAVE SACRIFICED ENDLESSLY AND TIRELESSLY TO GET THE NEWS EXACTLY RIGHT AND I AM SO PROUD OF THEM. I’M HONORED TO HAVE ANCHORED THEIR WORK EACH DAY. I WILL MISS THEM AND OUR TIME TOGETHER GREATLY AND DEEPLY. SO RECENTLY I ASKED THE COMPANY TO ALLOW ME TO LEAVE FOX NEWS AFTER REQUESTING THAT I STAY THEY OBLIGED. UNDER OUR AGREEMENT I WON’T BE REPORTING ELSEWHERE, AT LEAST IN THE NEAR FUTURE, BUT I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE MORE OF GEO AND OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND THEN WE WILL SEE WHAT COMES ALONG. THIS IS MY LAST NEWSCAST HERE. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING TODAY AND OVER THE DECADES AS I TRAVELED TO MANY OF YOUR COMMUNITIES AND ANCHORED THIS PROGRAM, STUDIO B, AND FOX REPORT, PLUS ENDLESS MARATHON HOURS OF BREAKING NEWS. IT’S BEEN AN HONOR AND MY PLEASURE. EVEN IN OUR CURRENTLY POLARIZED NATION, IT’S MY HOPE THAT THE FACTS WILL WIN THE DAY, THAT THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS MATTER, THAT JOURNALISM AND JOURNALIST WILL THRIVE. I’M SHEPARD SMITH.

    Well when Murdoch is meeting with the Presidents personal attorney (and we all know that's exactly what he is) then they're no longer trying to hide their bias towards the Presidents fake news. I have to say I'm really disappointed in Disney. They had such a great reputation but they don't seem to care about their reputation anymore, it's okay to bring on the Presidents lies.

    I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! I called this a long time ago. Shepherd has way too much integrity to be on Fox Conspiracy News. He actually goes by facts and not lies and propaganda like the rest of the Fox line-up! BOOM!!!

    Thank God. Shepard Smith went from an honorable and credible journalist, to a pathetic and dishonest stooge.

    I’M SURE SHEPARD SMITH WILL BE WORKING FOR THE CORRUPT MSM IN THE NEAR FUTURE!!!

    Gathering and Reporting the News? Since when is repeating what is on other stations "Gathering"? Reporting? Putting a spin on everything regurgitated by others is not reporting the news, it's butchering the facts and telling half-truths. I will not miss this Yellow Journalistic Hack one bit. CNN or some other leftist leaning Alphabet Agency will pick him up.

    I can't stand this guy, annoying and abrasive as hell to so many guests. Good riddance. His personality and tone in this video is entirely contrary to how he is usually, he's never so nice and pleasant and complimenting, someone's got him by the balls for sure.

    Truth to Power? Really? This is better than winning the World Series for me. With this moron out of the way (likely fired for very poor ratings) we won't have to hear his BS paranoia about our POTUS. When does Chris Wallace & Janet Napolitano's uncle leave? Pleasssssssssse?

    He's no Walter Cronkite, those days are so far gone. So tired of watching Opinions with the title "News" at the bottom of the page.

    Now that you've finished your "bragamony" – leave – you will not be missed (I expect you'll show up on CNN or MSNBC because you fit in more with liberal progressives than you do with the intellects on FOX Prime-time. You're probably leaving for one of two reasons – you get hassled by FOX viewers for being a liberal; or you get terrorized by liberals for being on FOX. Either way – it makes no difference to me – I may actually watch FOX in the afternoon now that I won't have to see your mug.

    Fox is no place for someone with honesty and integrity. Get out of there and leave it for the fascists, morons, racists and the senile

    It is a good thing for the country that Smith is no longer going to be on national television and will no longer be able to spew his anti American brainwashing lies to the US public. This is truly a great day for our nation.

    I hardly imagined this channel could get any worse for America and our people. Apparently, with your departure it isn't so, Shepard. You were their brightest hope for decency and truth. Best wishes. I'll miss you—and believe even less in Fox Lews.♥

    Always respected Shepard Smith as a news man but in resent years he has got the TDS really bad. Good luck hope you find your way back to the light.

    Fox should let Wallace and the other journalists go to. Their opinion shows are far more popular with viewers and advertisers.

    It'll be funny to see who Fox puts in Shep's place. They have to be a news person, not an opinionhead entertainer. Whoever they put in, they'll sound completely different than their normal personality on Fox.

    It makes little sense that anyone who hates Trump would even watch FOX and yet we have a few trolls trying to convince the rest of us that Shepard Smith is the only reason that they tuned into FOX. The last time Smith had any credibility was when he broke rank and went after an actual "RINO" President called George W. Bush. That rant about the evil acts of Bush and his Family was actually warranted. Unfortunately his rants against our current President are not! This myth that Trump had something to do with going to Smith's Boss to get Smith fired, is a leftest fanatic's fantasy. Smith's removal is connected to his negative ratings PERIOD!

    This should have happened 10 years ago. When I watch the news in this time spot it wasn't Shepard Smith. Goodbye and good riddance.

    Please stop putting him with Chris Wallace. Wallace argues with the right over truth and helps the left lie on his show. All of Wallace's guestion the right are got-you and soft guestions to the left at which he helps them answer. Shep never reported like that and didn't used his show as an attack on anyone.
