Donald Trump supporters threaten to boycott Fox after host criticises President

Source: The Independent

Donald Trumpís supporters have launched a scathing attack on a Fox News anchor who criticised the US Presidentís treatment of reporters and his refusal to answer questions at his first solo press conference.

Shepard Smith accused Mr Trump of "repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all."

He said: "It's crazy what we're watching every day. It's absolutely crazy."

His comments came after the US President launched a sustained attack on the media during a fiery and, at times chaotic, news conference.

32. Absolutely!

They might actually get a little bit of real news instead of just hearing from the GOP Propaganda machine.

11. Far, far too many.

From 39 to 55% of adults, according to various recent polls.

He was down there basically shouting that THERE IS NO ONE HERE,there is NO ONE here. Meaning the Fed Gov and FEMA. He was trashed for putting in a dig at Bush. Did he leave FOX then--nope.

22. I know...who would have thought we'd ever see a headline like this

 

Someone, probably Putin's propagandists, prepared Trump for this outcome way ahead of time, hence the 'fake news' meme.

15. It's time for Fox to dump Shepard Smith

He just doesn't seem to fit the Fox mold.

Too often, he comes across as too fixated on facts, with no regard to accepted opinion.

24. They just want information that confirms their biases

I wouldn't have an institutional problem with Fox News at all if it was called Fox Opinions. As it would be something I would disagree with, but it wouldn't deserve opposition on an activist level.

17. Shepard Smith has at times been more moderate than most on Fox.

I suppose he's their token "liberal" (at least he's liberal compared to most Fox hosts).
