“Nose Holding” Shep knows that is a stupid question and he doesn’t have to yell at Naomi Wolf. He could have asked her the same question in different terms a la Why was it not as good to vote Clinton or Kerry?
I wish every anchor on Fox could hit the ground running like Shep does. Too much bashing of Fox gets by in the name of “fair and balanced”. When someone pushes Fox, push right back. That’s fair and balanced!
I’m glad he did that, because I’m sick and tired of these leftists going on FNC and then blatantly bashing the place. If they have no respect for the network, then they should refuse all invitations to appear on it. Very rude to accept an invitation to appear and then gratuitously attack the network that is giving them free airtime.
If anyone remembers Ms. Wolf being paid more than $10K per month 8 years ago, to teach Al Gore how to be an alpha man, well…I think she saw one today.
^16: She’s a humorless harpie who made it obvious that she thinks she’s too good to appear on FNC. Wolf showed a great deal of contempt for FNC, and I hope she’s never back on there again - it’s not as if she actually adds anything to the content.
I would never have heard that snooty tone of voice from someone and thought they were trying to be funny. If that was his intention (and I don’t think it was), it was seriously open to misinterpretation.
“Snooty tone of voice?” Sounded like he always does when he goes in for the kill on a follow-up question. That’s what REAL journalists do, instead of having “yes” men and women on who echo their opinions. I was watching when this went down and I had the same question that Shep did-what candidate was she talking about re the nose smelling. When he did the follow up, she made the Fox crack that was totally unwarranted as she was the one who said what she said and all of a sudden wanted to cop an attitude about answering the question. He called her on her BS–good for him.
I have a question though-Wolfe complained about her “history” with Fox. So if she has issues with them to begin with, why in the world was she on the network to begin with?
My My My I guess the Fox anchors cant handle the truth. A republican candidate for president that nobody cares for, stockmarket down the toilet, Bush specials that are so elementary, Latinos having a say in this election, Hillary Clinton cannot be knocked down, Rudy Guilani’s stupid campaign, Meghan Kelly giggles, Ed Hills motherly lectures,
No business news on Cavutu business news show, John Edwards good looks, I guess it is not a very good time to be connected to fox right now. I guess thats why people are foxing them now.
Um, let’s see…he went after Drew Peterson not too long ago. He went after everyone (I think it was Susan Estrich in particular) during the NH primary a few weeks ago…he was in rare form that night! Shep is pretty equal opportunity about calling people out on the air.
did you all grow up in crazy abusive households??? she WAS answering his question and he INTERRUPTED her asking her to answer his question. if that type of authoritarian behavior is good in your book you would have loved Mussolini! how about some listening and some learning!!!
