Shep Smith: Biggest Moonbat on FNC?

Hard as it is to believe, the clownish kook Geraldo Rivera has competition for the title of biggest moonbat on allegedly right-wing Fox News. The latest from Shep Smith:

In an interview on Fox News Channel’s Studio B on Wednesday, New York Congressman Peter King criticized President Obama for his “race to close Guantanamo,” prompting host Shepard Smith to parrot left-wing talking points on the subject: “[Obama] said that gave us a black eye around the world and studies seem to suggest that’s exactly what it did.” …

King pointed out Smith’s bias: “I think only a person that’s incredibly naive would say that we got — that we deserve that black eye. We got it because elements in the media and elements in the Democratic Party kept parroting that line.” In reply, Smith could be heard off camera sighing in disgust: “Ugh.”

Here’s Shep a little earlier, on the topic of saving potentially millions of innocent lives by subjecting a few hardened terrorists to momentary discomfort by waterboarding:

We are America! I don’t give a rat’s ass if it helps! We are America! We do not f***ing torture!

But we do occasionally drive into women with our cars. From 2000:

Capitol Police on Friday arrested Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith, one of hundreds of journalists in town to cover the election drama, after police said Smith struck another reporter with his car during an argument over a parking space.

The reporter, Maureen Walsh of Tallahassee, is a freelance journalist who works for Bay News 9, a cable news channel based in Pinellas Park.

By day’s end, Walsh was released from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with bruises on her knees and legs, police said. Smith, 36, was charged with aggravated battery with a motor vehicle, a felony, and was released on $10,000 bail from the Leon County Jail.

Police gave this account:

About 2 p.m., Walsh was standing on Monroe Street across from the Capitol, in a rare empty space in a parking lot crowded with television satellite trucks. She told police she was saving the space for co-workers. Smith drove up in a white Mazda Millenia and yelled at her to move.

“He shouted some profanities at her and basically just struck her, striking her at the knees, which threw her up on the car,” said Sgt. Edwin Maxwell.

Walsh told police that Smith got out of his car, shut the door and walked past her, across Monroe Street to the Capitol, where he and a dozen other television reporters had set up makeshift studios for their live broadcasts.

But Smith has continued his career at FNC, whose “fair and balanced” motto apparently requires inclusion of the unbalanced to be fair and balance those who are balanced. At least Schlep hasn’t threatened to spit on Michelle Malkin.
