“Fox News has routinely held up Shep Smith as cover to suggest that the network has a straight news side. Smith abruptly quitting Fox News should put to rest the myth that Fox has an actual news side. It doesn’t. Fox executives have made it clear that this is Sean Hannity’s network now. Be warned: Fox News is about to get even more deceitful and destructive,” said Media Matters President Angelo Carusone after Smith stepped down from the network on October 11.
