Shep Smith on His Fox News Shows: ‘We’re an oasis of no-opinion people’

Shepard Smith talks to the Orlando Sentinel‘s Hal Boedeker about “Studio B” and “Fox Report,” the shows he anchors on Fox News. Smith says editorial commentary has no place on the two programs:

“We’re an oasis of no-opinion people. I like it that way. I hope it never changes,” Smith said. “If we’re able to encapsulate the day and give you a sense of what happened, we’ve done our job.”

He doesn’t get the attention of his prime-time colleagues, and he’s just fine with that.

“When you’re doing opinion and spout with rhetorical flourishes whatever your take is, you get noticed a lot. I’m trying to get the news noticed,” Smith said. “If we can present the day’s events to get you to Google and learn more, we’ve done a service.”
