When Fox News anchor Shepard Smith criticized President-elect Donald Trump for “belittling” a CNN reporter, it opened the floodgates of criticism against Smith for standing with rival network CNN.
As Reported by Conservative Tribune:
On Wednesday, after CNN reporter Jim Acosta tried to ask Trump a question, Trump refused to answer, finally telling Acosta, “You are fake news.”
Trump was irate over an intelligence document making the rounds that accused him of scurrilous conduct. The complete, unverified report was published online by BuzzFeed after CNN reported on the existence of the document and offered a two-page summary of the allegations, which have been denied and debunked.
Smith took Trump to task after the incident with Acosta.
“CNN’s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property,” Smith said. “Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN’s report, it is our observation that its correspondents follow journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling or delegitimizing by the president-elect of the United States.”
Smith took a hit on Twitter for his stand.
