The Hypocrisy Of Liberal Shepard Smith





We’ve come to to expect that whatever Governor Palin says or does will be taken out of context, twisted, and spun to make her look bad. We’ve even come to expect that things other people say will be attributed to her to make her look stupid. We’ve come to expect it from left-wing bloggers and the liberal media. But when it comes from usually respected news organizations such as Fox News it’s even more troubling.

Anyone who got out of bed yesterday has by now heard the story about how President Obama, even when pardoning a Turkey, couldn’t do it without notes. Oops, sorry. Forget that. That’s not the story I’m referring to: you’ve probably not heard that one. I’m talking about the one where Governor Palin had a slip of the tongue and it turned into an international news story. Governor Palin addressed it last night on her Facebook page.

Recently the Governor questioned whether some journalists even read the publications they write for. It appears that some TV anchors don’t watch their own networks.

Enter Shepard Smith.

On Wednesday, in a degrading way, Shepard broke this story as follows:

Did you hear what Sarah Palin said? We have to stand by our allies in North Korea, the same one who during the campaign didn’t know there were two Koreas.

Shepard reported that she didn’t know that there were two Koreas as fact, he didn’t say “who was rumored not to know” or “who reportedly didn’t know.” Although this has already been debunked and confirmed as post-campaign trashing by some McCain advisors, Smith reported it as fact.

Maybe if Shep would have watched his own network he would have known that rumor wasn’t true. During the campaign, (yes the campaign where she supposedly didn’t know there were two Korea’s) when asked by Sean Hannity what countries today pose the most danger, Governor Palin said this:

Hannity: What countries today pose the most danger, in your view, to America?

Governor Palin: Any country that is going to house violent Islamic terrorists. We have to keep our eye, of course, on Iran. We’ve got to keep our eye on some of the ongoing activities in Russia, also. North Korea under the leadership of Kim Jong Il — certainly there is a lot of concern there.

Judging by Shep’s snarky comments one would think that he is immune from verbal slips. So I decided to do some research and I’ve discovered that maybe after all when it comes to Shep they are not “slips” he appears to have something on his mind:

it’s Hunt not….

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones:

This is just a small sampling. A few minutes on You Tube will yield many more instances just like these.

Governor Palin has a deep understanding of the situation in North and South Korea. Given the strategic location of Alaska in the Pacific Theatre, and with the Republic of Korea being a trading partner with Alaska; Governor Palin is well-versed on North and South Korea…far more so than Shlep Shep.

How do I know that? Because I spent 10 minutes on-line doing some research. If only Shep’s producers at Fox News would do the same, we could continue treating them as a respectful media outlet.

Shep you owe Governor Palin an apology. Will you man up and do it, Champ?
