After his four-minute rant about the media sensationalism and fearmongering around Ebola, Shepard Smith was fired from Fox News yesterday. On live television, Smith gave viewers an accurate picture of Ebola and explained to them why it was not an immanent danger, displaying a sense of level-headedness and sanity that flies in the face of the Fox lack-of-ethics policy. According to the Fox News release, Fox CEO Roger Ailes began personally drawing up Smith's release papers around the point when Smith began defending the Obama administration's coverage of Ebola, saying that the party not in power "needs to show that there is a lack of leadership". As Smith continued his heresy by saying that there was "no evidence of any kind of which we at Fox News are aware that leaders have lied about anything regarding Ebola.", the staff began panicking. By the time Smith told the viewers that "If that fact changes, our reporting will change.", the memo was complete. Smith's spot in the broadcast schedule will be filled by the new 'Screaming in Terror Show'. CNN spoke out in a press release condemning Smith's levelheaded reporting, saying, "While reporting facts in a reasonable manner, Mr. Smith has forgotten the true purpose of journalism: to boost ratings."
