The head of a group known as America’s Survival, Inc. wants Shepard Smith to publicly acknowledge that he is gay.

ASI President Cliff Kincaid gave a presentation at the National Press Club last Tuesday about his organization’s investigation of Fox News. The group’s 40,000-word report warned that Fox News “has become pro-homosexual propaganda.”

During the presentation, Kincaid noted that Out magazine had named Smith as one of the most powerful gay men in the media. Smith has never publicly identified himself as gay.

“I don’t know about you, but if I was listed as one of the most powerful homosexuals in the media, I would first demand a retraction and probably sue for defamation and collect a lot of money. Shepherd Smith, according to my information, has never asked that that be taken down. He’s been one of Out magazines most powerful media homosexuals for several years in a row.”

Kincaid also noted that Smith had described “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” as a “National Day of Intolerance.”

“So look, Shep, come out of the closet. Come out of the closet,” Kincaid remarked.
