Background: Shannon Bream (interviewer for Fox News) was reporting on the Governor’s race in NJ which will be decided this coming Tuesday. The race is a close one between incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine and Republican candidate Chris Christie. This is one of those races that will seem to be a “litmus test” for the 2010 election. Shannon Bream had an impromptu interview with Chris Christie. Shep was obviously surprised and asked her when she would be interviewing Corzine. She stated that they had requested an interview with him several times and he had not replied. Then Shep apologizes for that “lack of balance” and says it wouldn’t have happened if he were in charge.
Okay, first of all, how is it Bream’s fault that Corzine isn’t interviewed when he is the one who won’t give the interview? There are a few people who have no business being on Fox. Shep is one of them. Geraldo is another. And in my opinion, Bill O’Reilly is another. These people are about stupid. What was Shepard Smith trying to do? Win his way into the heart of the Supreme O? Kiss up to Axelrod and Dunn? Piss off his viewers? Well, atleast he succeeded at the last one.
Another little piece of this exchange that ticks me off is that Shep says, “the Democrat’s probably gonna win, right?”. Um, no. The latest Rasmussen survey has Christie (the Republican) ahead by three points. Do your research, Shep. If I really wanted to hear the liberal point of view, I would be watching CNN or MSNBC.
