Sean Hannity Calls Fox Colleague Shepard Smith 'So Anti-Trump'

During his radio show this week, Sean Hannity called out his colleague, top Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, as being “so anti-Trump” in his coverage of the White House. “I like Shep,” Hannity told his guest, administration official Seb Gorka. “But he’s so anti-Trump. I mean, he went off on a rant last week.” Hannity was apparently referring to the clip below in which Smith accused President Trump and his advisers of telling “lie after lie after lie” about possible collusion with Russia. Last October, Hannity similarly accused his now former network-mate Megyn Kelly of bias against Trump, who viciously attacked her following the first Republican primary debate on Fox. “[You] should be mad at @HillaryClinton. Clearly you support her,” Hannity tweeted at Kelly. In a statement responding to Hannity's comments, Smith said, “Sometimes facts are displeasing. Journalists report them without fear or favor.”
