Here’s what we know so far…
Millions of Americans were pleased when Shepard Smith left Fox News. He stepped down quickly. There was nothing prolonged about it – other than the agony Trump supporters felt watching the guy blast POTUS for two and a half years.
CNN President Jeff Zucker, who was recently caught on camera telling employees to push Trump impeachment stories, labeled Fox News “state-run” TV. He’s now interested in hiring Smith. From Daily Beast:
CNN chief Jeff Zucker on Thursday went off on Fox News, bashing the rival network as “conspiracy TV” and indicating that he’d be open to hiring former Fox anchor Shepard Smith.
“I think Shep’s a great journalist,” Zucker said during an on-stage interview with Brian Stelter at CNN’s Citizen Conference in New York. “I understand he’s not able to take any jobs for the foreseeable future. When he’s available, he is somebody who is very talented and I would be very open to talking to him.”
