Shep Smith apologizes for ‘lack of balance’ in Fox News report
Fox News host Shepard Smith is known for demanding fairness at a network that often isn’t balanced. On Tuesday, Smith went so far as to apologize for a report that only interviewed one of the three candidates in the New Jersey gubernatorial race. Fox News reporter Shannon Bream only spoke with the Republican candidate Chris Cristie.
After the interview, Bream told Smith that they had asked to interview the Democratic candidate, John Corzine. “We have in multiple requests, and when it comes in, we’ll let you know.”
“Wow. I didn’t know that was about to happen. My apologies for the lack of balance there. If I’d had control it wouldn’t have happened,” lamented Smith.
