He’s here to shepard your anus into the arms of the truth. And by the truth, I mean his penis.
CNBC announced on Wednesday that former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is joining the network to host a one-hour evening news program on weekdays at 7 p.m. ET.
The newscast, which will be called “The News with Shepard Smith,” is set to launch in the fall. Smith’s title will be chief general news anchor and chief breaking general news anchor.
Smith joins CNBC after spending 23 years at Fox News Channel, where he anchored “Shepard Smith Reporting,” “The Fox Report” and “Studio B.” He also served as chief news anchor of the network and managing editor of the breaking news division.
“I am honored to continue to pursue the truth, both for CNBC’s loyal viewers and for those who have been following my reporting for decades in good times and in bad,” Smith said in a press release.
Yeah, I’m sure a lot of Fox viewers will be switching over to follow faggot Smith on CNBC.
I actually don’t really even know if I’m being sarcastic there.
Lots of weird going around these days.
Smith left Fox News abruptly in October after establishing himself as a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, who had repeatedly attacked Smith. Before announcing his departure, Smith was reportedly warned by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and Jay Wallace, president and executive editor, to stop criticizing evening anchor Tucker Carlson. Fox denied those reports.
CNBC Chairman Mark Hoffman said Smith has a track record of fact-driven storytelling.
“We aim to deliver a nightly program that, in some small way, looks for the signal in all the noise,” Hoffman said in the press release. “We’re thrilled that Shep, who’s built a career on an honest fight to find and report the facts, will continue his pursuit of the truth at CNBC.”
Clearly, they’re setting him up as the Anti-Tucker Carlson. Tucker Carlson is the biggest thing on cable news right now, so NBC wants a show exclusively devoted to attacking and “debunking” him.
Tucker’s probably going to get kicked off Fox before the election anyway.
