The “Does He Realize He’s on TV?” award goes to Shepard Smith!


The unseen photo of Osama bin Laden from his Abbottabad, Pakistan compound

Ahhh, hello! Mr. Smith, you know the cameras are on, right?  I’m not the squeamish type, but even I got a little nauseous listening to Shepard Smith interview Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma about the pictures of Osama bin Laden post CIA/Navy Seal raid on the douchebag terrorist’s compound.  Which question did I not really want to know the answer to?  There are so many to choose from, but I’d have to say that when Shep asked, “What part of his head was missing?” I thought the veteran FOX studio geek may have gone a little too far.  His most head scratching question?  “What was he wearing?”  Clearly, Sheppard meant to ask, “Who was he wearing? Was it Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta, Giorgio Armani, who?”  Oh, wait! It doesn’t matter how you ask about his wardrobe.  It’s still an asinine question. 

I don’t watch a lot of news on television these days.  I prefer to get my news from the interwebs.  This may be the typical line of questions reporters ask these days.  I can’t say for sure, but if it is, I applaud my own decision to give up on TV news. 

BTW – is it a right wing media thing to spell the al qaeda’s leader’s name Usama and a left wing media thing to spell his name Osama?  If we can’t agree on how to spell the number one enemy to the United State’s name, what hope is there for us to come together on any other issue in this country.  Yikes!
