    My bet is that he got tired of the BS and left. He was probably the last Fox News presenter that actually reported news in a factual manner. The rest is all agit-prop. The left is just as bad. Anyone who believes anything on TV is a complete fool.

    fox news is akin to a far right sex offender caught with a young child and claims the child is not complaining

    Shepard Smith is rare amongst journalists of today, he undersood the value and integrity of factual news over spin and opinion

    Shepard Smith departure has exposed fox news as a fake far right news factory, probably the worst kept secret, as everyone knew

    kinda ironic when trump the frump whines about fake news

    In his exit, Smith alluded to the tension between the opinion and news divisions, saying that the news division had always "endeavored to deliver" the news "while speaking truth to power, without fear or favor, in context and with perspective."

    Smith signed off his newscast adding, "Even in our current polarized nation, it is my hope that the facts will win the day, that the truth will always matter, that journalism and journalists will thrive."

    This reminds me of a time when several UK journalists quit the telegraph (sTORYgraph) due to stench of far right fake news

    He said that Fox News asked him to stay, but he chose to leave.

    He was likely fed up with the utter bullsh*t that spews from their opinion morons later each day.

    Barr met with Murdoch yesterday and agreed that they would give Smith an ultimatum: either stop calling out Trump's lies or resign or be fired.

      Murdock retired??? Lol

      He still owns FOX. and Barr did meet at his home on Oct. 10th. But no proof it was about Smith.
