Inquiry Incites Infighting at Fox News, With Hosts Hurling Insults Across Time Slots, Yahoo News:

Fox News personalities are facing heckles, insults and criticism for their coverage this week of President Donald Trump and the impeachment inquiry.

And that’s just from their own colleagues.

In an unusual airing of intramural grievances, Fox News anchors and pundits have let loose at one another in full public view — lobbing attacks across time slots and offering a rare glimpse into tensions behind the scenes at the top-rated cable news network.

In one striking exchange, a guest on Tucker Carlson’s prime-time show Tuesday dismissed Andrew Napolitano, the veteran Fox News legal analyst, as a “fool” for saying Trump’s urging of a favor from the Ukrainian prime minister constituted a crime.

Shepard Smith, the network’s chief news anchor, fired back the next afternoon, declaring it “repugnant” that a guest would insult a Fox News colleague — and adding, pointedly, that the remark had gone “unchallenged” by Carlson.

Back on the air Wednesday night, Carlson gleefully extended the feud, mocking Smith’s comments and noting, “Unlike maybe some dayside hosts, I’m not very partisan.” (Smith, a nonpartisan news anchor, is often accused by Trump of a liberal bias.)
