Cavuto Explains 'Fair & Balanced' To Shep Smith

Last week, after a report by Shannon Bream on Fox News, anchor Shep Smith, apologized to viewers about being “Fair and balanced” because she had only spoken to one of the candidates and aired that report. Well apparently Shannon had made several attempts to speak with the other candidate and get an interview but they were continuously declining the offer which Shep would have known if he had done a little bit of homework. Some say Shep’s comment was obvious sarcasm, but of course the left would use any opportunity to throw something back at Fox News. Personally I can’t say that I like Shep’s reporting! I find him to be arrogant and annoying. I also found his off handed remark, sarcasm or not, to have belittled the journalist who was giving the report at that time. You could tell that Shannon Bream was taken aback. Fair and Balanced means allowing both candidates the same opportunity but letting them choose if they would like to use it or not. You can’t can one interview in the garbage because the other candidate doesn’t want to participate. Shep was totally out of line and though Neil Cavuto failed to mention his name, it’s quite obvious that this is being directed at that particular comment and incident.
After another report by Shannon Bream, Neil Cavuto, as clear as possible so even Shep could understand, explained to viewers what “Fair & Balance” really means and why Fox News is both!
I must say, Cavuto is uh-mazing!
