He apparently believes the press is a victim of intimidation. That will come as news to Trump supporters who have been attacked by the majority of the press for the last three years.

Shepard Smith Laments ‘Intimidation of the Press’ in First Speech Since Fox Exit

Veteran TV anchor Shepard Smith decried the “intimidation” of journalists Thursday evening in his first public appearance since departing the Fox News Channel.

Smith, known for his critical coverage of the Trump administration, made the remark in a speech before the 2019 International Press Freedom Awards in New York City.

“Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomena,” Smith, who hosted the event, said before taking a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump. “We don’t have to look far for evidence of that.”

“Our belief a decade ago that the online revolution would liberate us now seems a bit premature,” Smith continued. “Autocrats have learned how to use those same online tools to s**** up their power. They flood the world of information with garbage and lies masquerading as news… There’s a phrase for that.”

“They dispatch troll armies after critical reporters, who are vilified and harassed. Their personal information – such as phone numbers, address, ID numbers – posted and published as an invitation for even more attacks,” he added.

Overnight, Shep has become a darling of the left. Who could have predicted that?

Veteran TV anchor Shepard Smith decried the “intimidation” of journalists  Thursday evening in his first public appearance since departing the Fox News Channel.

Smith, known for his critical coverage of the Trump administration, made the remark in a speech before the 2019 International Press Freedom Awards in New York City.

“Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomena,” Smith, who hosted the event, said before taking a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump. “We don’t have to look far for evidence of that.”

“Our belief a decade ago that the online revolution would liberate us now seems a bit premature,” Smith continued. “Autocrats have learned how to use those same online tools to s**** up their power.

“They dispatch troll armies after critical reporters, who are vilified and harassed. Their personal information – such as phone numbers, address, ID numbers – posted and published as an invitation for even more attacks,” he added.

Smith then lauded journalists for covering authoritarian governments’ wrongdoings.

“In other words, they did their jobs as reporters and editors in countries that portray themselves as democracies,” he said.

Smith also announced a personal donation of $500,000 to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Smith announced October 11 on his weekday program Shepard Smith Reporting that it would be his final broadcast for the network. Smith joined Fox News in 1996 and covered major news stories for over two decades. He held the title of chief news anchor and managing editor of the organization’s breaking news department. Days after Smith’s departure, CNN President Jeff Zucker signaled that he is “very open” to hiring the veteran anchor, praising him as a “great journalist” and “incredibly talented.”

“I would be very open to talking to him,” Zucker told CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter at the network’s CITIZEN forum.

America is Still Free to a Fault

Original Post

I’m half way surprised he didn’t unload on FOX having just resigned from there and what with the left’s certainty that FOX news is a conservative biased network.  

There’s more conservatives at FOX for where else would they be otherwise?  All the other networks are so overly biased to the left that no conservative could survive there.

Only the haters fail to see the vast improvements over the last pathetic
attempt at the office of POTUS. Ask the Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Whites
and others, even the anti Americans that should be locked out.
They all voted for Trump and said they would again.
 
 The only way D'Rats can win is to cheat, don't believe it, watch the MSM
at work, it's who they are.
 
This Nation hasn't been in better shape in 30 years, not a opinion but
a fact.

What they are capable of, as we witnessed from Qberry into the 2016
gift from God for an American leader, is so far beyond sore the depth 
of the deep hasn't bottomed out yet. Be ready for war.

"Former secretary of state addresses supporters to formally concede election a day after Donald Trump pulled off stunning victory"

And one minute later the dems began yelling impeachment.

“Donald Trump is going to be our president,” she said, speaking at the New Yorker hotel in Manhattan. “We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead.”

That didn't even last a minute! It never happened.

“This is painful and it will be for a long time,” she said,

It's looking like that long time is going to last forever!
