Sean Hannity pulled no punches, and pretty much said what everyone was thinking, regarding his ‘friend,’ Shepard Smith on Friday after the anchor called Fox News’ opinion programming strictly ‘entertainment.’
The Hill reports:
“Some of our opinion programming is there strictly to be entertaining,” Smith told Time Magazine‘s Daniel D’Addario in a piece titled, “Shep Smith Has the Hardest Job on Fox News.”
“We serve different masters,” Smith, 54, added when discussing the difference between the opinion side of Fox News, including shows such as “The Sean Hannity Show,” and the network’s news division. “We work for different reporting chains, we have different rules. They don’t really have rules on the opinion side. They can say whatever they want. If it’s their opinion.”
Here’s Sean Hannity firing back at Shepard’s assessment.
“While Shep is a friend with political views I do not share, and great at breaking news, he is clueless about what we do every day. Hannity breaks news daily-Warrant on a Trump assoc, the unmasking scandal, leaking intel, Fisa abuse, HRC lawbreaking, dossier and more REAL NEWS! 9p” Hannity tweeted.
Smith recently signed a multiyear contract extension with Fox News.
