‘HE HAS TO GO!!!’ Fox fans furious after Shep Smith blows up right-wing conspiracy about Uranium One

Published

on

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith was blasted by some of his network’s loudest viewers for fact-checking Republican talking points about Uranium One, which defenders of President Donald Trump have used to allege that it was actually Hillary Clinton who colluded with Russia.

“What are the facts? What is Uranium One?” Smith questioned.

Smith explained that Trump’s campaign line on Uranium One is “inaccurate in a number of ways.”

“First, the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction. It could do neither,” Smith noted.

“The accusation is predicated on the charge that Secretary Clinton approved the sale. She did not,” Smith concluded.

Explaining the facts was seen as a betrayal by Fox News viewers, who seemed to prefer the network parrot White House talking points absent journalistic examination.

Here is a sampling of some Fox News viewers’ reaction to Shepard Smith’s reporting.

We have such limited resources in Black Hills, and we’re already seeing infections rising,” the Oglala Sioux president, Julian Bear Runner, told the Guardian. “It’s going to cause an uproar if he comes here. People are going to want to exercise their first amendment rights to protest and we do not want to see anyone get hurt or the lands be destroyed."
