Shepard Smith Makes Bad Joke

Reported by Donna - August 30, 2007 -

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith they had a segment on several chemical vials being found outside the UN in NYC. It's fine to report on that but unnecessary jokes are not called for on a supposed news station.

Smith's asked Laura Ingall, "Have we found the WMD's, is that what's going on here?"

Comment: With thousands upon thousands of deaths caused by WMD's being one of the reasons for us going to war in Iraq, it was totally uncalled for to joke about the situation, which, it turned out, to be no threat to the UN.

Shepard Smith isn't Jon Stewart and shouldn't conduct his news show as a comedy show unless he wants to make that change.
