Bob Beckel and Shep Smith …. hands down they are blunt and tell it like it is …. and they draw viewers.
Beckel is funny as hell yet seriously humorous in combating with his four co-hosts on The Five .. and if you subtracted Beckel from the five the result would be zero …. the other four are a combination of typical Fox hyenas – without a shred of intelligence amongst them. That includes Bush’s former press secretary.
Shep has an edge to him … like Derek Jeter and Ford Motors ….. when faced with overwhelmingly obvious Fox BS … he does not back down from calling it as he sees it.
The only reason these two entertaining newsmen are on Fox is that they are profitable and very popular – since their core audience normally moves away from Fox News quickly when scanning cable news channels.
It is what it is – and if you are a cable news political junkie like me then you know what I mean.
