Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson not regarded by Smith as legitimate journalists
Why is Shepard Smith doing my job for me? Fox Hawk’s Mission Statement (and web address) is that I expose lies at Fox News by using their own words against them. Shepard Smith, a daytime reporter on Fox News, recently did a story debunking Sean Hannity’s Clinton/Uranium One story.
Ok, I guess I’m not the only one who knows Hannity hasn’t had a truthscicle is a while. Other reporters on his own station know it.
To bring us up to speed, here is a one paragraph synopsis of what Sean Hannity believes transpired between Hillary Clinton and Russia: while she was U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was influenced by a Russian company to give them a contract to mine 15% of America’s Uranium supply in exchange for money and favors. Mr. Hannity insists there is a dearth of Uranium in the U.S. already, and Mrs. Clinton sold it to the Russians.
According to Shepard Smith, no.
Feel free to look up the video on YouTube, just type in Shepard Smith Uranium One.
The Uranium One Conspiracy is the crux of Sean Hannity’s whole “it was really Hillary Clinton who colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election” story.
In an interview shortly after Shepard Smith debunked Uranium One, Shepard Smith turned it up to eleven by calling Fox News Prime Time shows “strictly entertainment.”
Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham responded quickly on Twitter:

While Shep is a friend with political views I do not share, and great at breaking news, he is clueless about what we do every day. Hannity breaks news daily-Warrant on a Trump assoc, the unmasking scandal, leaking intel, Fisa abuse, HRC lawbreaking, dossier and more REAL NEWS! 9p twitter.com/thehill/status…
|Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle)|
Always liked Shep, but his comments were inconsiderate & inaccurate. The hard working team at the Ingraham Angle does real reporting, develops impt sources and scores big interviews. Very proud of them. twitter.com/thehill/status…
Fox Hawk fun fact: Did you know that there are real journalists at Fox News?
Fox News show hosts Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith are dedicated professionals who verify their sources before airing a story.
Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham (or as I refer to them, Chingraham) can say whatever they want. They can even say that the things they are reporting are true and verifiable. They are not.
Think of Carlson, Hannity and Ingraham as the Entertainment Tonight of journalism. They are there to put on a show and get ratings. But tell the truth? No such obligation exists.
It’s one of the best kept secrets from Sean Hannity viewers.
