Shepard Smith, the longtime Fox News anchor who also headed up the network’s breaking news division, has abruptly left the network after more than two decades, shocking even some of his colleagues.
Smith’s final show aired Friday afternoon, when he bid his audience a surprise farewell. Fox confirmed the departure in a statement.

I’m surprised he lasted as long as he did there. Wonder what the “final straw” was…. and whether it was the final straw for him, or the Murdochs?

Interesting. I’m sure he’ll turn up at some other corporate news network, 6 figure salary and all.

Probably headed to MSNBC.

He will probably end up at MSNBC and being treated as some sort of ant-Trump McResistance hero.

….I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!

Looks like FOX got the message. “We better start working for Donald again. See you later, Shepard.”
National problems (slavery/racism, income inequality, pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more national sovereignty.

Poor Shep! That salary must have been a pittance.
