(The Blaze) Fox News’ Shepard Smith is an unconventional broadcaster by his network’s standards. On the one hand, despite being sandwiched between opinion shows, Smith’s sign-off, “Now you know the news,” is more the signature line of a straight news broadcaster. And indeed, Smith’s show tends to follow more the format of his compatriots such as Bret Baier or Chris Wallace.
However, unlike Baier or Wallace, Smith does inject opinions into his shows, and they’re not usually opinions that observers would expect on Fox News. Indeed, at least on social questions, Smith tends to be downright liberal.
