Shep Smith Resigns From Fox News Effective Immediately….

Fox News Anchor Shepard Smith resigns from Fox News effective immediately:

.

No word yet on his replacement.

Interestingly….

[Yesterday – NYT Link]

(Via New York Times) Attorney General William P. Barr met privately Wednesday evening with Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul who is one of President Trump’s frequent confidants but whose Fox News is viewed by the president as more hostile toward him than it used to be.

The meeting was held at Mr. Murdoch’s home in New York, according to someone familiar with it. It was unclear if anyone else attended or what was discussed. Aides to both Mr. Murdoch and Mr. Barr declined requests for comment on the meeting. (more)

And today:…

Curious timing.

    Good work, Rupert. Now go ahead and flush Neil Cavuto, Jill Clayman, and Andrew Napolitano.

    Smith has used the news hour to express his progressive opinions. He should have relingquished the news hour for another spot as an opinion purveyor. Fox management always supported him, probably because he was a LBGQ minority. I suspect this surprise resignation has some cause other than to spend time with his significant other and family.

      Good riddance Smith. You talk much better than you read the teleprompter. If anyone is sad over his leaving, just remember the particulars of the latest story about him and his disgusting morals(smell my fingers). Not a nice or noble cell in his whole body. Fox didn’t do it for high minded reasons when they hired liar and traitor Donna Brazile among others.

      Fox appreciated Shep’s running over a lady saving a parking spot so he didn’t miss getting on air back in 2000.

    I don’t agree at all at Smith’s leaving. I want the progressives on there bending into pretzels trying to justify the other crazies in their party. How do you justify open borders? How do you logically explain police denigration, encouraging homelessness, release of felony prisoners? If you do not watch anything but FoxNews one might lose sight of the lunatics supporting socialism like Pelosi and Schumer. Nope..I like watching Neil Cavuto, on the one hand, dancing on his desk for the stock market numbers yet on the other hand snidely snipping at the POTUS when he KNOWS where thou has profited. Or a retired general explaining to him to hand wring over the POTUS MOVING 50 US troops out of a certain area of Syria….like that is causing a complete break down in the peace there??? Neil! 50! Pretty funny. Especially when all the left does is complain about Republicans being the war mongers. UGH… Nope, I will miss the misty eyed Shep. I thought he was pretty and often wondered what his wife looked like….well….until he came out, or do whatever they do.

    It is more likely that AG Barr met with Rupert Murdoch to investigate Patrick Byrne’s revelations about his undercover activities for the FBI, which resulted in the imprisonment of Maria Butina. Recall that Byrne told everyone he sought Rupert Murdoch’s advice before deciding to go public with his stories.

    Hmmm. Barr is no fool. He knows he can’t influence media to fire someone for political purposes. But he CAN let an employer know if he has found evidence of unethical behavior or participation in a conspiracy perpetrated by an employee. Coming right after Barrs Italian and Australian trips, Looks like Shep Smith may have been a Conspirator or illegally received Classified info and disseminated it through Murdochs business. THAT is legal.

    A guess on the Barr/Murdoch meeting. I saw where Murdoch owns a stake In Stars Group (sports betting/online gaming) and are rapidly expanding Fox Sports into this realm. With all the legal hurdles with sports betting/online gaming across multiple states, Murdoch is probably trying to get Barr’s DOJ guidance on where Federal law is and where its going regarding online gambling.

    Then, maybe Barr said I here you got a guy ratting out all your sources and scoops to other media outlets. (pure irresponsible speculation – just wanna be like MSM)
    And, he probably said this is perfect timing to wack the hornets nest again to see who else comes racing out to attack me (Bromwich POS). I get the impression he takes any opportunity to ferret out more rats (they’re everywhere)

      Fan Duel just bought Stars Group, and Fox has the right to acquire 18.5% equity in Fanduel as a 10 year option. Stars and Fox just rolled out Foxbet in Jersey and Pennsylvania last month.
