People are Calling on Fox News to Remove Shepard Smith After What He Just Did On Air [VIDEO]

Fox News host Shepard Smith is once again coming under fire for controversial comments he made about President Donald Trump, this time calling him a liar.

On his program on Wednesday, Smith targeted the White House claim that the mainstream media is not adequately reporting the incidents of terrorist attacks carried out by Islamic radicals.

Trump said during a visit to CENTCOM in Florida on Monday, “You’ve seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe it’s happening. It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer further explained the following day: “What we need to do is remind people that the earth is a very dangerous place these days. That ISIS is trying to do us harm. And that the president’s commitment is to keep this country safe. And I think part of this is to remind the American people how prevalent some of these attacks are, and how much attention they have or have not gotten.”

Smith charged Trump’s and Spicer’s claims are an “echo” of ring-wing fringe media.

“The president’s assertion is false,” the Fox News anchor said. “The White House knows that it was false or could have known that it was false with a quick Google check, but either did not do so or decided not to tell the truth.”

Smith referred to a list the White House released Monday identifying 78 terrorist attacks, many of which it argued have not received the coverage they warranted.

The newsman noted that some on the list received extensive media coverage including last summer’s Orlando night club attack; the truck attacks in Nice, France and Berlin, Germany last year, and the Paris attacks in November, 2015.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters explained any one of the 78 terror attacks on the list once would have gotten “wall-to-wall” coverage, but now many are largely ignored.

    my god look at what happened in Sweden…60 minutes was attacked, a local citizen came their rescue and Trump is right many of these events are not covered.. But i guess it is not a terrorist attack if it isn’t more than 20 dead or injured. Shepard is not reporting news. if he is going to be a journalist or editorialist please state it.. I wonder Shepard do you think you can stand to reflect on all the misrepresentation you have done in the paste two years…I’d say if Fox wants to be seen as a news station on its way out and struggling like CNN keep Shep on…Sure seems to be a waste of money…he has aright to an opinion but not to demean our trust in balanced and fair news reporting.

    Smith is a joke! He’s more interested in self promotion then the facts.
