Shepard Smith may not be the loudest Fox News anchor (that would be Bill O'Reilly), or even the craziest ( we're looking at you, Glenn Beck). But he sure does have a fiery temper. Need proof? Well, he was arrested in 2000 for " aggravated battery with a motor vehicle" after getting into an altercation with a rival reporter. Yikes. Need more proof? Then watch our favorite Shep outbursts, starting with this week's uncensored slip up.
Shep Drops the F-Bomb!
Someone was clearly asleep at the switchboard, because Shepard’s expletive-laden rant about the CIA torture memos slipped through and aired live on April 22, 2009. How much are FCC fines these days, anyway?
Shep Uses Blago Presser to Yell At Blago
In January 2009, soon-to-be-impeached Gov. Rod Blagojevich gave a press conference. We’re not exactly sure what he said, though, because Shepard Smith spent the whole time screaming at Blago.
Shep Swings at Windmills, Fire Alarms
Do you know what Shep hates even more than corrupt governors? Fire alarms. Watch this hilarious clip from July 2007 and you’ll see why.
Shep’s Angry at the Wolf
In his February 2008 argument with pundit Naomi Wolf, Shep coins our new favorite phrase: “Don’t you Fox on me… ever.” We don’t know what it means, but we vow to use it every day from here on out.
Shep Invokes McCarthy, for No Discernible Reason
In his March 2009 rant after the House committee meeting on AIG bonus payments, Shepard compared Barney Frank to Joe McCarthy. OK, then!
Shep Checks His In-Box
Unsurprisingly, Shepard Smith has received a few angry emails in his time. Also unsurprisingly, he has addressed them on the air.
Shep vs. “Media Bias”
Shep gave comedian Nick Di Paolo an earful when Di Paolo implied that liberal media was responsible for Obama’s victory in this clip from November 2008. Our question: Why does it look like it was filmed in Smith’s rec room?
Shep Has a Dirty, Dirty Mind
This clip, from November 2002, doesn’t show an angry Shepard Smith, but we’re including it anyway because it’s Shep doing what he does best: unabashedly plowing past an embarrassing verbal slip up.
