                      The fact they turned off comments for his sign off is evidence about why Shep left. Fox can't handle any criticism or truth.

                        Shepard Smith spreads fake news against the greatest President this country has ever seen.
                        Fox News should always support President Trump and anyone there who spreads fake news needs to be immediately sacked.

                          As a conservative, I've literally enjoyed watching Shep Smith, and you Bret, for years. Your *factual* reporting of the news was a breath of fresh air, versus the other moronic networks...

                          That said-- if Shep (and Judge Nopolitano) have truly taken the stance of being 'never Trumpers,' in spite of the fact that lots of voters like me put him in the oval office, then that puts them squarely in the exact same camp as *Hillary Clinton.*

                          And that is NO place any 'conservative,' journalist or otherwise, should want to find himself.

                          Bret, I hope you have the ability to learn from the morality tale that is Sheppard Smith. If not, you might want to fire up your laptop and start updating your resume'...

                              Yeah give tribute to your little sissy buddy Brett. We want you, Cavuto, and Mr Fake judge nappy to go along with him. I hope everyone will get you all off there. Brett, Chris Wallace, and Cavuto will not let their guest answer a question but just keeps interrupting them especially if they are of this administration. I will dance in the rain and shout out thanks to God when you all have left the same way as Shep has and take Donna, Jessica, and Juan with your butts as you go.

                                          Bret Baier is a traitor to this country. He hates our President. Baier is a never Trumper. He has an hour show where he reads the news that we already have heard. Baier is a loser and so is Shep the liar.

                                            Fox just lost one of the only guys on the network who actually tells the truth. The pro Trump brainwashing propaganda is about to go completely unchecked.

                                              I think in the next 5 or 10 years you’re going to see a hardening of the left wing. How much more abuse are they going to take. There us only so much shitting on marginalized people, you can only poke someone with a stick so many times before they hit back. I foresee the left arming themselves en mass to protect themselves from the hordes of rightwing cops and military who are frothing at the mouth to “take out” the “commie fags”. If these delusional fascist thugs actually think that antifa is violent, antifa is just the beginning.

Wake up everyone! We're all living in prophetic times. That is why things are what they are today. A lot of people claiming to be Christians but are fakes because you can tell by the fruits of the spirit.

You are spoon-fed leftist, "hate Trump" propaganda by hundreds of networks daily, so the one network who doesn't drink the KoolAid, you call the liars. Despite the fact that your networks have been proven liars over and over - remember the "devastating evidence" in the Mueller report against Trump, which turned out to be a complete hoax manufactured by the Hillary campaign? Your friends at CNN swore that they had "seen the evidence" in the report. Turned out - they lied. _For two solid years._

                                                                    You are so used to being fed exactly the constant anti-conservative hate you live and breathe - you have no idea what is true or what is false. I feel sorry for people like you.

                                                                    I'm glad Shepard Smith left though; there are plenty of liberal networks out there for him to join. Fox doesn't need to be polluted with his presence any longer.

                                                                  Good thing they turned off the comments of the video with his departure. I came on just to comment on that video! I'm sure you can guess what I was going to say!

                                                                  • Rebecca Pacheco

He is pulling strings both inside the government and the private sector. His cabinet has been a rogues gallery of criminals. The lucky ones get fired before they commit a large enough crime to be arrested. They enter his cabinet being the best ever according to Trump and months later, they are fired or taken into custody. They are expected to be blind, thoughtless sheep. If they aren't perfectly obedient, he destroys them. He drained the swamp_into_the White House. This country was built on checks and balances. Now it is extreme left vs. extreme right. I still remember Ronald Reagan and "Tip" O'Neil debating back and forth but coming to solutions together. The same was true of Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich. That was in the days of a functioning country. Yes, I know that the economy is doing well, but that is only one measure of the success of a nation. Getting legislation passed is what I am referring to. Clinton and Reagan managed to have both a strong economy and bipartisan cooperation.

                                                                                      Sheppard Smith is a sell out. I have watched him go from fact based journalism to left wing propaganda! Literally sat there and watched him report on a news story, that Hannity already covered and he left out all the facts and evidence that disproved the report he was giving to his viewers. How can two reporters on the same news station report two different sides of the same story? I will tell you how. Because It is not about reporting facts/evidence anymore. Everything is an op ed. Op eds. are fine if they have facts to back up their point of view, if not it means nothing and is nothing more than brainwashing. If this is what fox is going to start doing then they are no better than all the other fake news outlets. Hannity, Carlson, Judge Jeanine, Ingraham, Dobbs are the only trustworthy ones left and I am sure that when their contracts are up they will be gone too, even though they bring in the highest ratings. I fully expect to see Smith show up on CNN real soon! That is where he belongs! Glad to see him go, don't let the door hit him on his way out!

                                                                                          Well, all I can say is when Shep's segment came on I couldn't seem to change the channel fast enough..Yes, he literally hates our POTUS, but, the last time I actually tuned in to his segment was when the cathedral in Italy was on fire..Just happened to break just as his show came on so I watched that coverage..But even then he had to show his butt..They'd found a little old man on the street for Smith to interview about the tragic fire. Of course Shep began asking him too many questions that were impossible to answer since the fire had just happened..He asked his opinion about something and the man gave him his personal opinion..Boy, Shep just snapped and began being terribly rude to the poor guy..I couldn't help but think, "Yep! and there it is, the true Shep with his hateful, know it all attitude!!"..And he had been invited to speak to him to begin with, there was Shep making snide remarks to the poor guy!..
                                                                                          I felt so badly for him..There he was on national TV being insulted by this cocky news anchor!..What a shame..So eventho Smith was as bias toward our POTUS as any of the fake news channels, and perhaps even worse, it was his entire attitude I found sickening, snd why on any other day I wouldn't even be watching .I found he was beneath me to even watch his crumby segment! And that simply proved me right!..The guy has an attitude problem, and came across as if he was just a tad better than the other hosts or anchors!. I won't miss his segment in the least!..And, I usually don't judge people , but he just made it so easy to do!
