Shep: New Orleans Disaster “Was Personal”

By Brian 

FNC’s Shep Smith is this month’s Playboy Interview. Here’s an excerpt:

“PLAYBOY: After covering stories from Iraq to Oklahoma City, you have said Hurricane Katrina was the story of your life. Why?

SMITH: I knew and cared about New Orleans, so it was personal, but the main this is I was there in the middle of the story as it played out. I saw firsthand what was being done and, more importantly, what wasn’t being done. I was in one place, on one overpass, watching people wash up out of the floodwaters, thousands of people. When they got to the bridge, they weren’t told where to go. They weren’t given water or food, formula for their babies of insulin that would keep them alive.”
