So there is a question as to if the story is accurate ???
I like Shepard Smith. I had no idea he is gay. And further ... I don't care.
Why would it matter either way? The guy is talented and a well balanced reporter.

He may be the only balanced reporter on fox.

Smith says it is a lie, it is a lie until proven otherwise. He should know.
The Gawker; really This is not ATS worthy IMO.
I never did like gossip and those who engage in it, since it's nearly always wrong and used to slander people by folks who don't care if its true or not.

Could someone link the list of "Bad ATS Sources" please? I have looked and can't seem to locate that post.

How many of the chefs on Food Network are gay for that matter? It's pretty common knowledge which ones are, but I don't recall any of them having a big news conference to announce the fact.
So, if Food Network oppressing their gay talent?
Blatant outings of public figures feel, in 2013, like a relic of the dark old days, when someone’s homosexuality was news in and of itself. Devoting an entire article to a celebrity’s orientation, once a sign of progress, would today seem weird and regressive. In a culture increasingly acclimated to the notion that being gay is entirely normal, the classic outing article would have an anachronistic air of tacit homophobia. Its underlying point—this person is gay!—simply isn’t newsworthy unless homosexuality were somehow aberrant or shameful. If it’s not, why report on it in the first place?
