Pro-Trump news man ,from pro-Trumpist t.v network breaks rank


Fox News host Shepard Smith broke with network orthodoxy on Friday, issuing a sharp denunciation of the Trump administration’s handling of investigations into its links with Russia.

Smith,decried Trump camp untruths before, described White House “deception” as “mind-boggling”.

“Why all these lies?” he asked fellow anchor Chris Wallace. “Why is it lie after lie after lie?”

The outburst came after it was reported that more people attended a meeting between Donald Trump Jr and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York in June 2016 than had previously been disclosed.

“We’re still not clean on this, Chris,” Smith said. “If there’s nothing there – and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothing burger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it – with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower?

“The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling. And there are still people who are out there who believe we [the media] are making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look around and go, ‘Where are we, and why are we getting told all these lies?’

“This really shouldn’t be a matter of liberal v conservative, pro-Trump vs anti-Trump,” he said. “If you’re a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.”


Is this the first crack in the "official" pro-Trump propaganda/mouth piece machine,
or is Shepard the first of other Trumpist dissidents to come forth

How much 'weight' do Wallace and Smith have ?

Perhaps after all the Fox pro-Trump propaganda this is the balance

Wow, I thought only liberal hated Trump.

Krauthammer and Smith?



Charles Krauthammer: Trump Jr. emails are evidence of 'collusion


money.cnn.com...


I guess some conservatives have their eyes uncovered

And Beck and McCain and Graham. It's why I like him.

Shep Smith is like John McCain.

He comes out every now any then with some strongly worded statements, but ultimately falls in line at the behest of those who sign his paycheck.

Just like McCain.

Is it asking to much to have reporter's that tell the story without shoving a left or right lean on the story?
I'm tired of all news telling me what to think.

Shepard Smith has always hated Trump.

There are a few on Fox who hate Trump. They are misguided, but they speak their minds.

They're not telling you what to think they are expressing an opinion , concerns are suppressed in dictatorships.
I don't think anyone could disagree with this.

“This really shouldn’t be a matter of liberal v conservative, pro-Trump vs anti-Trump,” he said. “If you’re a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.”

Because their (true) paychecks are signed CIA.

This may be smoke in Trump's general direction, the reason why it never went this far until now, is the fact that the fire resides in the DNC/GOPe for cooking up this setup...


Everyday more is revealed and more and more it exposes the SWAMP...

I want the story. Period.
Anything more than that is commentary.

Sure does, let's see if this pans out:




The pilot who flew the plane for the secret meeting between Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch and, recently disclosed, Paul Ryan is breaking his silence for a $2 million payday that is sure to put his life in danger.


And the bomb shell:




“The three of them sat like old friends and discussed strategies and made treaties. Clinton’s crimes were to be set aside until his wife finished 2 terms of working with Republicans to shore up the base and ‘move away from these Trump loving racists’ as Ryan put it.

Lynch would seal the deal by not investigating the Clintons further. Ryan gets to remain Speaker, the Democrats get the Senate and the White House and 2024 is up for grabs.”




Supposedly to air on fox in the next week or so.

thelastlineofdefense.org...

I guess we'll see soon enough.

Shepherd Smith was never a "Trumpist". Look it up. Him and Juan Williams are Fox's token leftists.

Methinks all the media that would not let this go...were doing their job, regardless of ratings blah blah.
We all know now that the Trump babies and bro-in-law were sitting on this, concealing it even for the security clearance. It's also pretty clear that Natalia is linked to Russian intel which is as near as you get to the mob, and the money laundering, and certain companies, and banks and the list goes on. I'm pretty sure also that much of the media know what's been going on, but they can't talk about it yet. I can wait.
