Shepard Smith Is an Influential Man

shepaskmen10-6.jpgAskMen has released their list of the 49 most influential men of 2009. Fox News’ Shepard Smith was the only newser on the list, appearing at the #31 spot (right between Tiger Woods and Hugh Jackman). In addition to pointing toward Smith’s high ratings and big salary, AskMen also noted his memorable coverage:

He anchored FOX’s Presidential Election Night coverage last November, and more recently, kept viewers up-to-date on the moment-by-moment developments immediately following news of Michael Jackson’s death. Perhaps the most memorable Shepard Smith moment of the year came on April 22 when, during a passionate discussion on the use of torture on Freedom Watch, an internet-only program, the FOX anchor let loose with a few choice words, including the forbidden “F” word.
