As we told you yesterday, Shep Smith made an on-air announcement during Friday’s show that he would be leaving Fox News effective immediately. That news caused former Fox News commentator Bob Beckel to weigh in with a slam on his former employer:
Shepard Smith is leaving Fox News. I worked at Fox for six years. Shep was a REAL reporter. I attacked Trump daily. My firing was a setup up by people inside & outside Fox. With Shep gone Fox Is no longer a News network. It’s run by Trump Sadly it will go down with him.

Greg Gutfeld remembered things differently:
Bob, trump had nothing to do with your firing. In fact Fnc blessed you with many second chances. Using Shep’s classy exit to take this dishonest swipe at a bunch of good hardworking people is disappointing. https://t.co/qkKvuhapbC

Well, there it is.
People were very worried about him and made their concerns known, not because they wanted him ousted, but because there were legit concerns about his health & wellbeing.

Wow, when did Beckel get so bitter?
