FOX NEWS CIVIL WAR: Sean Hannity And Laura Ingraham Hits Back At Shepard Smith

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith says opinion programming on his network doesn’t “really have rules” and exists “strictly to be entertaining,” in an interview.

“Some of our opinion programmings is there strictly to be entertaining,” Smith told Time Magazine’s Daniel D’Addario in a piece titled, “Shep Smith Has the Hardest Job on Fox News.”

“We serve different masters,” Smith, 54, added when discussing the difference between the opinion side of Fox News, including shows such as “The Sean Hannity Show,” and the network’s news division. “We work for different reporting chains, we have different rules. They don’t really have rules on the opinion side. They can say whatever they want. If it’s their opinion.”

The interview comes as the network announced today it is re-signing the veteran anchor to a multiyear contract as Fox’s chief news anchor and managing editor of breaking news. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“I don’t really watch a lot of opinion programming,” Smith continued. “I’m busy.”

I guess, I know, that there are people who come at everything in a political way. I don’t. I’ve never really liked politics,” Smith explained. “I’ve always said that I thought politics in America was weird and creepy and lacked a connection to reality.”

And Sean Hannity decided to set thing straight with Shepard Smith!

Hannity tweeted this in response to Shepard Smith saying “some of our opinion programmings is there strictly to be entertaining”
