I’m sure there will be plenty of people on the right that are very happy to hear this news.
Personally I thought Shep was a great news man as long as he stayed away from politics. He was perfect for covering breaking news, but too often his liberal side came out and ruined it. So I’m not upset to see him go. There are plenty of other good news anchors on Fox that can step up and take his place.
