Default Fox News viewers are gunning for Shep Smith. How will Fox News respond?

With Megyn Kelly no longer on the air occasionally pushing back against President Trump's treatment of women, Fox News viewers are channeling their ire toward Shepard Smith, who anchors the news and opinion network's afternoon and breaking news coverage. "Smith's persistent fact-mongering has made him persona non grata among some parts of the Fox News faithful," says Paul Farhi at The Washington Post.

Smith's past comments affirming human-influenced climate change, supporting same-sex marriage, urging reasoned calm on terrorism and disease, and defending rival network CNN from "fake news" attacks from Trump have raised hackles among some network viewers, but it was this throwing cold water on Andrew Napolitano's theory about Britain wiretapping Trump that really "made him an apostate to the conservative Fox News orthodoxy," Farhi says.

Fox News viewers are gunning for Shep Smith. How will Fox News respond?

Bias in the media? Not so much here. Bias in the audience?

Liberals then - Fox News is bias in favor of Trump!

I doubt FOX will do much of anything. Fair and Balanced means they will mostly let their anchors loose with what they want to report and the commentators how they want to analyze it.

Why you have a problem with it is amazing,,,; and telling

I think some people on this board have no understanding of the concept...
Especially for their own political convenience.

So nobody should take any note of the fact that the Fox audience is trying to punish Shep Smith for stepping off the right-wing message reservation...
I guess it's all a "look the other way" mentality for how Republican sausage is made.

This is what makes Fox News great and why it dominates the ratings. They are; as their slogan says; fair and balanced. You don't see nothin' but one-sided coverage. There's almost always counter-balance with both views represented.

Shep is hands-down the best, honest, and unbias news anchor on tv. Dude tells it like it is.

Agreed. I'm watching him today and not seeing any bias. Some of his guests, yeah, but most contributors are being straight up with him. Catherine Heriege was excellent

Ailes is gone thank goodness. But here is one response about Shep:

Traitor Fox News reporter Shepard Smith decided to descend to Hillary’s level and fling insults at his colleague Sean Hannity. It did not go over well.

Said Shep, “When the opinion people say things and then later we get facts that are different, and I report those, everybody would love for there to be a war going on here. But it’s not like that.”

He added, “Everybody’s got a job to do. [Sean] Hannity is trying to get conservatives elected. And he wants you to listen to him and believe what he believes.”

He continued, “And I’m disseminating facts.It’s really apples and teaspoons. What we do is so different. He’s an entertaining guy who has an audience that he serves, and I deliver the news. His is probably easier ― he knows what he thinks and just sticks with it. This stuff changes all the time.”

The joke is on Shep because he’s stuck at Fox News, which has gone down the tubes after Ailes’ departure. Hannity, on the other hand, has a bright future in Trump’s administration when he wins. Do you think Shep is an idiot?
