Where credit is due

WHERE CREDIT IS DUE…. Last week, Jon Stewart told Fox News’ Chris Wallace something he liked about the Republican network. “Can I tell you something, though?” Stewart said. “I have to say this. Yourself, Shep Smith, uh, you and Shep Smith both have your moments.”

That’s true, and he had one yesterday.

By way of my friend Alex Koppelman, this clip shows Shepard Smith responding to some conservative comedian who believes Barack Obama won last week because “the media” was “in the tank” for him. Smith would have none of it.

I didn’t agree with every word of Smith’s analysis, but it was definitely on the right track. It’s worth taking a look.
