‘Get Rid Of Him!!’ Angry Fox Fans Go After Shep Smith For Blowing Up Their ‘Uranium One’ Conspiracy
Angry Fox News fans are demanding the firing of anchor Shepard Smith after seeing their favorite right-wing conspiracy go up in smoke following Smith’s report.
Smith drew ire from 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.
Watch Shep Smith’s report below and some highlight of Fox News viewers’ reaction on Twitter:
Shepherd Smith seems he has direct answers on uranium 1 . how about the truth. Hillary was part of the team that said yes you can't delegate you vote job and Obama was the ok to sell what was the FBI doing. Shep stop protecting the past admin

I normally don't tune into Shep's hour on FOX, can't stand his bias, but today while surfing channels he caught my interest…in 3 mts he argued Hillary's defense, how she had nothing to do with Uranium One and how Trump had lied about it. HE HAS TO GO!!!

Those 9 that approved uranium deal were all Obama Clinton lackies. Just like Shepard Smith!
