Shep Smith on ‘Irresponsible’ Ebola Coverage

By Brian Flood 

Fox News’ Shepard Smith offered harsh criticism of the “irresponsible” manner in which Ebola is being covered by the media.

“For the next few minutes, I’m going to give you the facts on Ebola. It’ll take just three minutes. But first, today given what we know, you should have no concerns about Ebola at all. None. I promise,” Smith said to open today’s show.

“The people who say and write hysterical things are being very irresponsible,” Smith went on to say.

Also last night, Jon Stewart had a similar take on “The Daily Show,” in which he played a montage of media outlets covering Ebola.
