Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 17, 2017

As other Fox News hosts are devoting primetime shows to attacks on the Clinton Foundation, Shepard Smith highlighted President Trump's hypocrisy over the security of confidential information. "Taking intelligence, given to the U.S. by an ally, sharing it with an adversary in the Oval Office while only that country's media were in the room," Smith said. "No Americans. ... Later that month, candidate Trump tweeted 'Hillary Clinton should not be given national security briefings in that she's a loose cannon with extraordinarily bad judgement and instincts.' Now the sitting president is accused of actions that are potentially far more dangerous. In fact our own legal analyst says these are the most serious accusations leveled against a sitting president in the modern era."

The election has been over for eight months. Trump is making mistake after mistake. Lets talk about the Clinton Foundation!

Good job Shep on being the adult in the room. Sorry to hear they are firing you soon.

It's why I enjoyed and respected Alan Combs. I prefer Fox News over CNN and always watched Hannity & Combs. Have not watched Hannity since can't stand him by himself.

I have noticed a slight shift in tone on Fox News.

Something big must have happened there.

Yeah they accomplished their goal. They dumbed down and deceived the american public so thoroughly that they elected a con man plutocrat, who is going to hand what's left of our democracy over to bankers, polluters, and fellow con men. Fox news can retire now. They won.

Shep and Kelly were the only 2 that have/had any ounce of credibility there. Shep is too good for Fox News, MSNBC or CNN would be wise to hire him if/when Fox fire him.

It's interesting that Fox spent so much time talking about other things rather than talking about the emerging Whitehouse scandals. Their regular viewers had to have felt blindsided when a special counsel was appointed.

Rather than reporting the leaked stories, Fox spent much of its time talking about investigating the leaks. It's akin to wanting to investigate the person calling 911 to report a fire when there is an arsonist in the White House trying to burn it to the ground.

Roger Ailes is gone, now he's actually dead.
