The Right Attacks Shep Smith

Following FOX News' Shepard Smith's on-air admission that the level of right-wing hate in this country has risen to a dangerous level since the election of President Obama several conservative attack dogs have unleashed (no pun intended) on him:

Rush Limbaugh complained that Smith is "whining and moaning." Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller accused Smith of "scary stupidity" and being a "pompous elitist," before arguing, "Shep sucks. And Shep has always sucked, and it's time to get rid of the deadwood.... He has got to go." WorldNetDaily responded by talking about an alleged auto incident involving Smith in 2000. An item on HotAir.com said Smith believes "his own viewership is teeming with would-be presidential assassins. If he truly believes that, why doesn't he quit?"
There is no room for dissent within the Republican party and if you work for FOX News you had better tow the line. Reporters who fail to do this by relaying actual facts and reality that the right disagrees with will apparently not be tolerated.

I can really see why they would get down on him. Smith has a lot of nerve suggesting there are haters on the right. Von Brunn was a leftist because he hated Bush.

Right DLB. Hating Bush makes you a leftist. I love this new spin. My conservative grandmother hated Bush! She is not a leftist by any stretch.

The more the right talks, the more they just dig their own hole. I just wish they would jump in.

Smith was right, though.
