The following article, Ridiculous: Anti-Trump Anchor Shepard Smith was Paid $15 Million By Fox News, was first published on Big League Politics.
In the wake of liberal newscaster Shepard Smith’s departure from Fox News, it’s been revealed by none other than CNN that the longtime Fox host has been raking in an annual whopping salary of $15 million.

It’s hard to imagine Fox’s massive payments to Smith as anything other than a massive waste of resources. For $15 million, Fox could easily afford to hire dozens of new up-and-coming journalists and cover many more elements of national politics often left forgotten.
