The Integrity of Shepard Smith of Fox News
In the waning days of the campaign, the McCain Palin ticket has added Joe the Plumber to their line up of speakers at rallies.
Joe the Plumber appeared on FoxNews with Shepard Smith. Joe was questioned by Mr. Smith about remarks he'd made to someone in the crowd, who'd asked Joe a question, framed with the questioner's views and beliefs that if Senator Obama were elected President, it meant " .... the death of Israel".
From the article:
Anyway, five minutes with Joe The Plumber had Shepard Smith so frustrated that the Fox anchor felt compelled to issue a disclaimer, immediately following the segment, pushing back on any notion that Obama would mean the "death of Israel," saying: "I just want to make this 100 percent perfectly clear -- Barack Obama has said repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States, no matter what happens once he becomes President of the United States. His words." Smith later added, "The rest of it -- man...some things -- it just gets frightening sometimes. We'll be right back." I haven't seen Shep this broken up about the state of the world since Katrina.
In addition to Joe the Plumber, Tito the Builder, formerly of Colombia, has also appeared on Fox News, offering his views on Governor Sarah Palin, comparing Senator Obama and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.
