Shepard Smith Says Fox Is President Bush's Network
Reported by Donna - December 10, 2007 -
Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith he was speaking with Courtney Friel, one of the Fox correspondants, about the 16 year Icelandic boy who said he had a secret telephone number to the White House and just wanted to chat
Think Progress has the video here.
The 16 year old boy said he just wanted to chat with the president, but he also impersonated the President of Iceland. Police came to his door and questioned him for hours. The White House says it has no secret numberbut the boy and his mother insisted they did. The mother and son said that he would not be allowed in the United States unless he gave them the information. The boy said he couldn't remember where he got the number.
Courtney Friel then said to Smith that we (Fox News) had the White House number on their blackberries. This is when Shepard Smith said, " We're his network after all, so we do have his number."
Comment: So Shepard Smith admits that the Fox Network is President Bush's network and just admitted so. Right from the horses mouth. So all the naysayers can stop defending Bush's network as fair and balanced.
