Fox News Openly Gay news anchor and No.1 in his time slot ‘Shep Smith’ , and conservative host ‘Sean Hannity’ who leads the pack in prime-time on the cable news network,  often clash on news events of the day. Shep Smith has made it a point to correct his prime-time opinionated prime-time host when he lies to the FOX News audience.

In fact Shep Smith made it a point earlier this year to complain openly that his network’s opinion shows such as Sean Hannity, “don’t really have rules” to follow. In other words, they are allowed to just make shit up.  Sean Hannity has been a major supporter of president Trump and has gone so far as to create controversy and legal problems for the Fox News network as he managed to get the cable news channel sued by the Seth Rich family for pushing conspiracy theories at the family’s expense.  While the lawsuit was dismissed this week, Shep Smith has always maintained that the Seth Rich conspiracy being pushed by other hosts on the Fox News channel, it is not true nor has there been any evidence indicating any of those conspiracies had a hint of truth.

When the Fox News anchor Shep Smith did an interview back in March for Time Magazine, he said…“Some of our opinion programming is there strictly to be entertaining,” Smith told Time. “I get that. I don’t work there. I wouldn’t work there. I don’t want to sit around and yell at each other and talk about your philosophy and my philosophy.” said Smith.

Once word was out on how Smith slammed the prime-time conservative shows to Time Magazine, Hannity said the following…”While Shep is a friend with political views I do not share, and great at breaking news, he is clueless about what we do every day,” said Sean Hannity.

Watch the Media Matters created a Supercut of Sean Hannity spewing his false claims while on the other side of the split screen, Shep Smith destroys Sean Hannity on everything he says. Now remember that both men are on FOX News so it was an awkward skit to watch to say the least. Enjoy!
