“In a surprisingly frank outburst, Fox News anchor Shep Smith tore into the Trump administration on Friday for its lack of transparency on the unfolding Russia scandal.
`Why is it lie after lie after lie? Smith said to fellow anchor Chris Wallace. `The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling.`”
The Fox News Network begins its programming in the morning with “Fox and Friends” which can only be described as a chatfest whose main objective is to puff up Donald Trump. At night Sean Hannity wraps things up by serving as Trump`s prosecutor, he rips apart any politician, pundit or newsmaker who dares say anything critical about the president.
Between these two programs, that are rock solid behind Trump, there is a steady stream of less shrill pro-Trump propaganda.
But not everybody at Fox is drinking from the water cooler that dispenses Kool-Aid,there are a couple of journalists with integrity at the Fair and Balanced network, Shep Smith and Chris Wallace.
Smith hit the nail on the head, it`s lie after lie after lie emanating from the White House. Lies of commission and lies of omission. Lies that are calculated to fit in with a false narrative, and lies that are calculated to muddy the waters. Little white lies and huge whoppers.
After Smith in frustration posed the question “Why is is lie after lie?,” Wallace could only respond, “I don`t know.”
Wallace opined: If you`re a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.
Trump`s supporters aren`t fair-minded citizens, they`re zombies who are enthralled and mesmerized by the histrionics and rantings of their Messiah.
I share Smith`s frustration, I`m sick and tired of the lies, obfuscation and coverups of the Trump administration, and I plead with my fellow Americans to join my crusade to do everything possible to impeach Donald Trump.
