Shep Smith Ruins Bill O'Reilly's Tie, Worries About His Future (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 17th 2010 10:45AM
Every night, at the end of 'The Fox Report' (weekdays, 7 PM ET on Fox News), host Shepard Smith throws it to Bill O'Reilly, whose long running political commentary show 'The Factor' follows.

On Wednesday Smith had a confession to make to cable news' ratings king.

"If you were here last night about this time, you know yesterday I kind of spilled something, and ended up stealing a tie off of O'Reilly's desk. I didn't tell him, and the plan was to return it today, but last night at dinner ... the soup seemed to like it, and it's not really cleanable," Smith explained, showing O'Reilly's stained tie to the camera.

"So if I'm not here tomorrow, somebody check with O'Reilly."

Perhaps the O'Reilly of a few years ago might have had Smith's job (or worse!) for the infraction. But these days we're pretty sure the much-mellowed O'Reilly will let Smith off with nothing more than a half-hearted 'pinhead' designation.

Yonni Barrios, Chilean Miner #21, Might Have Second Mistress (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 19th 2010 5:03PM
Yonni Barrios, the 21st Chilean miner to be pulled to safety, was famously met by his mistress -- not his wife -- when he emerged from the caved-in mine. But as it turns out, they might not have been the only two ladies in his life.

On the 'The Fox Report With Shepard Smith' (weekdays, 7 PM ET on Fox News) Smith reported several new twists in Barrios's salacious saga.

"Now there's word of another mistress, a 25-year-old," Smith explained. "Fox News can't independently confirm that, but Foxnews.com reports that a dating website is offering Barrios $100,00 for an endorsement deal."

And not just any dating website, but the always publicity-conscious AshleyMadison.com, a dating site for married folks who are looking to step out on their spouses.

Is Barrios really the best spokesmen for such a website? If anything, he highlights the fact that if you cheat on your spouse and something unexpected happens -- like getting trapped in a mine for two months -- your infidelity could be exposed in just about the most embarrassing way possible.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Nine on-air breakdowns

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2009 11:00AM
Glenn BeckOn the ninth day of Festivus, TV gave to me... nine on-air breakdowns.

Director Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it."

Yes, having a camera stuck in your face for an hour or more a day must take a toll on your sanity. Your privacy is virtually limited. Your every move is scrutinized and criticized by faceless meanies. Your therapist is one session away from owning his own fishing trawler.

It's only a matter of time before the grasp of sanity is clipped away like a loose thread on a homemade snowman sweater and you turn into a blubbering, snotty, incoherent mess for all the world to enjoy. These are the personalities who lost it and may or may not have gained whatever "it" is back.

Could this have been the "crazy" thing Shepard Smith was talking about?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 28th 2009 8:04PM
The other day, Fox News newsman Shepard Smith announced on his Facebook page that something "crazy" would be going down on his show. Just what kind of crazy are we talking about? A monkey wearing a Napoleon hat crazy? Putting two bananas in your ears and barking like a walrus crazy? TiVoing Brothers crazy?

He never officially confirmed just what the "crazy" thing would be, but I wonder if this is it. Smith, the Fox News Channel's equivalent of Edward R. Murrow, issued an official apology for his network's (and I'm actually quoting) "lack of balance."

The "lack of balance" in question referred to Fox correspondent Shannon Bream, who conducted an interview with Republican candidate for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but failed to nail down his Democratic opposition Jon Corzine. Smith said he didn't know the candidate wasn't interviewed and that "If I had control, it wouldn't have happened." Quick, someone check The Weather Channel for Hell's temperature and five-day forecast!

Update: Stephen Colbert takes on Shepard Smith

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 24th 2009 5:20PM
The other day we shared the video of FOX News anchor Shep Smith dropping the F bomb. Now Stephen Colbert responds to all of Smith's various moments of "not being a team player." Colbert is more upset about swearing on live television than anything else. Colbert helpfully provides a list of words that Smith should have said instead of that dreaded four letter one. Added bonus: Samuel L. Jackson!

Ladies and gentlemen, the best of Shepard Smith

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2009 3:27PM
Shep Smith is one of my favorite people on television. He's always entertaining, informative, fair, and (yes) balanced! He's also a great source for those priceless "live news" moments that make for great video fodder. Here are a few of my favorites, including a new one where the F-bomb is launched (PopEater has even more Shep goodness).

Five people I'd like to see moderate a debate

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 2nd 2008 10:02AM
Katie CouricSo we've had the first Presidential debate, and the Vice Presidential debate takes place tonight at 9pm ET (on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, PBS, CSPAN, probably The Weather Channel and Noggin too). While newspeople involved in the debates range from good (Jim Lehrer, Anderson Cooper, Bob Schieffer) to bad (Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos), there are several journalists who never seem to be involved in the debates for one reason or another. Maybe the debate committees and the campaigns don't want them, or maybe the anchors don't want to do a debate, but I can think of a few people I'd like to see moderate these things.

After the jump, my top five.

Shepard Smith doesn't want to do more crap

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 9th 2007 2:40PM

Shep SmithI used to dislike Shepard Smith. Not because he was on FOX News, but for the way he anchored the news. It was as if he was skipping whole words or something, making these short, declarative sentences, and it was hard to listen to him for a long period of time. But my view of him has softened the last couple of years (and will continue to if he keeps being this funny). He also doesn't seem to just automatically spew the network's line at the drop of a hat.

TV Guide's Stephen Battaglio has an interview with Smith about the new look and direction for his show. Among other topics, Smith talks about why CBS and Katie Couric quickly went back to a traditional newscast, why the news industry might be dying, and the possibility of hosting one of the presidential debates. He also says they're not going to do "more crap...we're not going to do more titillating [stories], Hollywood movie reviews and jokes."

And now, a word from Fox News anchor Jane Skinner - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 6th 2006 3:59PM

Fox News logoA few years ago, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith got in trouble for flubbing a report and using a phrase meaning oral sex. He didn't hear the end of it from people, and now the clip lives on forever online. But now he has someone who can identify with what happened to him, fellow Fox News anchor Jane Skinner (of "Skinnerville," as Shep likes to say every day).

Skinner was reporting recently on the war in Afghanistan, and she meant to say "top cop," but for some reason she couldn't get the word "cop" out, and said another word not once but twice. Shep was pretty funny about it, not only saying "South Carolina Gamecocks, she's a big fan!" and "We'll look for you on YouTube Jane!" And, as you can see from the video below, she has indeed made it to YouTube.
