Fox News host Shep Smith on Thursday confused a panel of legal analysts when he turned a discussion about cycling legend Lance Armstrong’s alleged doping into a rant about the HBO vampire drama True Blood.
“I wonder if he was taking ‘V’?” Smith seriously asked judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, referring to vampire blood, which can heal humans but also acts as a powerful addictive drug with stimulant and psychoactive properties.”
“What do you mean ‘V’?” Napolitano wondered.
“Well the sheriff took ‘V,'” Smith noted. “Do you not watch True Blood? Because ‘V,’ you can get all amped up on ‘V’ and do all kinds of weird things. You should watch True Blood. It just began on Sunday again.”
“OK, thank you, Shep,” Napolitano nodded.
“Because it will make you crazy, the ‘V,'” Smith continued.
“It will make me crazy,” a befuddled Napolitano agreed. “Do they respect the Constitution on ‘V’ — on True Blood?”
“I think they have their own set of rules,” Smith pointed out. “Sookie is just as weird as ever. Do you watch? I’ve never seen Lance Armstrong on there but I’m guess in that he could probably beat the werewolves, certainly those other ones. What were those other wolves that were on there?”
“I apologize, Shep, but I’m asleep by the time [it airs],” defense lawyer Arthur Aidala explained.
“You have a DVR? You should record the True Blood,” Smith advised. “Or we’ll give you the true death.”
The True Blood discussion takes place at about 4:50 in the following video from Fox News’ Studio B, broadcast June 14, 2012.

‘Possible war in the Middle East’: Editor explains why Trump’s visa attack on Iran is ‘lame’ response to oil field bombing
As the United States is searching for ways to draw down on decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, serious conflicts might be afoot, one Daily Beast reporter told MSNBC Sunday.
World News editor Christopher Dickey told host Kendis Gibson he doesn't understand the point of barring Iranian diplomats from being able to come to the United Nations General Assembly meeting this fall. During a "Meet the Press" interview Sunday morning, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said that the U.S. should deny the visas. The statement prompted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to call her out for "warmongering," and said she was out of touch with Americans who don't want to get into another costly Middle East war.
‘Please give me the audacity of a mediocre white man’: Editor unleashes on Justice Brett Kavanaugh
Managing Editor Tiffany Cross, who co-founded The Beat DC, unleashed on the most recent Supreme Court Justice to be outed for sexual misconduct.
Max Stier, a classmate of Justice Brett Kavanaugh came out with another story of the justice forcing his naked penis into the hand of a woman. The FBI was supposed to do a full investigation into Kavanaugh, and Stier gave them the information. Somehow, however, the investigation either wasn't completed, wasn't revealed or was ignored, because none of the information revealed was released.
Cross said that there are some who normally would have said, "man if only we knew about these allegations during the confirmation hearing." The problem, of course, is that it was known, Cross explained. It was simply ignored by Republicans in the majority. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is an excellent example of a pro-choice, pro-woman senator who claimed she trusted Kavanaugh. She's suffered the consequences from her home-state in wake of the vote. In the past four years, she has dropped from being the most favored senator in the country to among the least.
Benjamin Netanyahu ditches campaign rally after new data shows him losing — now he’s turning to Trump
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the fight for his political career after failing to form a coalition government in his previous reelection.
An MSNBC report revealed that Netanyahu was a no-show at a campaign rally after his team got a new poll that showed him losing on Tuesday.
Five months ago, the election was inconclusive, so Netanyahu declared himself the victor. The law dictates he must choose his coalition government by May, which automatically resets and requires another election. Ironically, it's one of the ways that Netanyahu was able to rise to power in his first election.
