Zitat des Tages von Shepard Smith:
There has to be news at a place called Fox News.
I look for those moments that are 'gee whiz' moments. There's some 'gee whiz' stories in our show, and they can't be written like A-1 in the Times. They have to be written more like Page 6 in the Post.
I don't own a car.
I think there's a certain sense of grounding that comes from not being a rich kid from a media-elite school.
I've always been fascinated by weather.
Everybody comes to the journalist with an agenda.
I'm a journalist, I run to the fire, that's what we do.
We have a product for sale called news, and I'm a salesman.
Interviewing politicians and movie stars, you know what you'll get. I like the people-stories better.
It is troublesome sometimes when people get up in your face in public, you know? And say, 'How could you, how dare you?' Well, they don't know me.
We don't communicate in full sentences anyway. We don't need all those words.
The exact time of death, I think, is not something that matters so much at this moment for we will be reliving John Paul's life for many days and weeks and even years and decades and centuries to come.
Oh, I don't talk about God.
I come from a place where we feel like we're not represented in the national media.
I'm fortunate enough not to be poor, and I'm not a bad tipper.
When I hear people say that Fox News is right wing, I know that's not true, because I'm the one doing the news. It's my show, and there's no place for opinion on my show. It's uninteresting to me.
I've never been in a focus-group meeting. I wonder how many anchors can say that.
I enjoy reporting on triumph over tragedy.
I need to keep my story count high. I'm trying to get as many stories in my hour as is humanly possible. We're telling more stories in our hour than any national newscast has in the history of this business, I think.
Not even my parents know how I vote.
I like stories that affect families.
I like to cover news when it happens, not five years later.
I take the subway to work. I love mass transportation.
I'm not a liberal elite who was educated in the northeast, for example, I'm just a kid from Mississippi.
In New York, I like it when you can get bagels at 3 in the morning.
When I make an error, it's a very bad day in my house.
