Shepard Smith Doesn’t Like to See Towers Fall – Um, REALLY?


By Betsy Rothstein 

In what may be the most inane quote of the day (no offense to Washington Examiner‘s Yeas & Nays, they just asked the question after all and didn’t force his response), FNC’s Shepard Smith “reveals” that he doesn’t like watching clips of the towers falling or those of Hurricane Katrina for that matter. Smith told this to Yeas & Nays reporters at a Thursday reception for a Hurricane Katrina exhibit at the Newseum.

As reported in Yeas & Nays:

“Before viewing the clips, Smith told Yeas & Nays, ‘I don’t like to watch the towers fall, and I don’t like to watch New Orleans flooded. I don’t like it. I try to avoid it when I can.'”

Question to broadcast media: Does anyone sit around watching this sh-t for fun?
