Shepard Smith going ballistic and punching a co-worker after being fired by Fox News is fake news. There is no truth that Smith was either fired by the cable news network or that he was involved in an assault of a co-worker. Where did this fake news originate?
America’s Last Line Of Defense published the article on July 16, 2017, reporting that Smith went crazy and assaulted a co-worker which led to his firing. You can read the fake news article below.
Shep Smith lost it this morning after he was let go for what he said in a statement was “an egregious violation of the trust between a journalist and his publisher.” According to Fox, the violation came when Smith called President Trump a liar repeatedly on live television.
According to Cynthia Luwhoo, an intern at the station, Smith came charging out of Rupert Murdoch’s office like a madman and went Godzilla on the newsroom.
“He was knocking stuff over and throwing things. Kicking barrels and screaming. He was very frightening for being one of the gays. He certainly seemed straight in that moment.”
That was when Smith walked over to his (now ex) coworker, Sean Hannity, and asked him why he was smiling. Hannity answered.
“I’m not laughing, Shep. We’re all sad to see you go.”
At that, says Luwhoo, Hannity went from smirking to laughing. That was when Shep Smith ruined his chances of having an actual career ever again. He hauled off and punched Sean Hannity right in the nose. Hannity fell back, bleeding, but stopped security from taking Smith into custody for the police.
“Sean knew he went too far. He let it go. At the end of the day he has a great show and Shep is unemployed.”
Fox hasn’t released a statement on Shep’s departure other than to say the terms were “amicable.”
However, there is no truth to the above story as no major news media reported on the “story.” The fake news comes at a time when Smith challenged the White House after reporting that there appeared to be more people in a meeting with the Russian lawyer than previously acknowledged. Here’s the transcript:
We’re still not clean on this, Chris [Wallace]. If there’s nothing there — and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothingburger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower? If all of that, why all these lies? Why is it lie after lie after lie? If you clean, come on clean, you know? My grandmother used to say when first we practice to — Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling. And there are still people who are out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look Go to the full article.
