The departure of Shepard Smith from Fox News ten days ago, following his on air-feud with Tucker Carlson over “partisanship,” ironically, indicates just how real tensions are within the network. After 23 years with Fox, and a day after yet another tweet from Trump criticizing Smith, he finally parted ways with the network; the starkly contrasting coverage, especially in relation to Trump, between the news and opinion sides had been boiling within the company for months. With Smith’s departure, ...
