Shepard Smith has been doing spectacular work in New Orleans since the storm and tonight was the high point as the stood toe-to-toe with Bill O’Reilly as O’Reilly tried to gloss over the failures of the rescue effort. Smith would not let him off the hook and it was beautiful to watch. But then O’Reilly had to leave to do a Natalee Holloway update. Yeah, great priorities.
And on the next hour, Shepard was on fire. Geraldo turned on the tears holding babies. But Shepard turned the anger of New Orleans to the TVs of America.
This is Fox, folks. Even Fox is mad.
