Shepard Smith: “He Doesn’t Really Eat Puppies”

“[T]he one way to make viewers hate you is to say anything bad about an animal.” Studio B anchor Shepard Smith seems to have heightened his animal rights sensitivities somewhat since the bad old days of his “Trampoline Bear.”

Friday, Shepard aired a segment entitled “Lab-Grown Hamburger Patty: Animal Rights Activists Support New Meat.”* During his interview of Dr. Nina Radcliff, he turned to his second banana Jonathan Hunt for his input on this bizarre petri dish meat. Replying with his trademark British macabre wit, Hunt quipped, “All I say is ‘If we’re running out of cows to eat, then let’s just start grilling small puppies.”

Subsequently, as the segment ended, Shep bemusedly looked to Hunt again, querying, “Smeat?” When Hunt unequivocally exclaimed, “No!,” Shep mischievously remarked, “Puppies but not….” Taking the bait injudiciously, a grinning Hunt replied, “Small pups, small puppies anytime: never ‘smeat’!”

Perhaps, explaining the apt end of his infamous Trampoline Bear video airings, Shep responded, “You do know that the one way to make viewers hate you is to say anything bad about an animal.”

When Hunt riposted, “I think they’ve hated me for a very long time,” Shep jested, “This is true! Thank you, Jonathan. The stage manager says, ‘Yes!'”

In an aside to his audience, Shep added, “He doesn’t really eat puppies.”

And, thankfully, Shep doesn’t really exploit Trampoline Bear–any more.

    Am I the only one who can`t stand Shepard Smith?.He is the most unprofessional newscaster I have ever seen in my entire life.The man can barely get through a story without inserting his own opinion, making a snarky remark or pulling a face to show exactly how he feels about it.He is a pathetic excuse for a `journalist`.

    Nope.I can`t bear the guy either.Roger Ailes seem`s to have a blindspot when it comes to Shepard Smith.I honestly think he is a bit unstable.I`ve seen him literally scream at guests,the man has some serious issues in my opinion.

    Trampoline Bear will be back. Slap-stick hilarious.

    Hint: Just as with the “grilling small puppies”, the trampoline bear video isn’t about the animal.

    You owe all idiots an apology. He’s much worse than that.

    Agree, he`s an awful anchor.I would love to see him replaced with Bill Hemmer or a trained monkey, frankly, either would be preferable.

    I`d take a monkey over Shepard Smith any day.The monkey would probably be more impartial.

    I think Shep is a big fan of Columbia`s finest.Not a stable individual.

    Praying Shepard Smith gets the boot to make way for Megyn Kelly`s new show.
