Shep Smith: Fox News' truth teller

Posted By on Fri, Feb 25, 2011 at 12:41 PM

Another believe-it-or-not moment from Fox News, thanks to Talking Points Memo:

Fox News' Shepherd Smith broke down the Wisconsin protests for Juan Williams this week, declaring that it's all about politics and union busting, and "to pretend that this is about a fiscal crisis in the state of Wisconsin is malarkey."

On his show on Wednesday, Shep asked Williams: "Isn't this just 100% politics?"

He continued that "there is no budget crisis in Wisconsin," and explained that the controversy is basically about big business "organizing to bust labor."

"If you're against the unions," Smith said, "you're all for the Governor."
