Gay Editor Explains Why He Outed Fox News Anchor Shep Smith A Decade Ago

by matt baume October 18, 2016

Better late than never, right? Fox News enabler Shepard Smith “came out” in a Huffington Post article this week, sort of. And it only took him over a decade after the editor of the Washington Blade outed him.

The year was 2004, and Shepard Smith was, according to Kevin Naff, spotted in a gay bar. Not only was he spotted, he flirted with Naff. At the time, nothing came of it. But a year later, Smith started getting a lot of attention for his coverage of Hurricane Katrina, and Naff recalled their interaction.

This was a time when Fox News was working to re-elect George W. Bush, and running toxic homophobic propaganda. It is galling to think of Shepard Smith comfortably enjoying the closet while supporting those efforts, and benefitting from the presumption of heterosexuality. Here’s what Naff had to write at the time:

“How can we expect the construction worker making $20,000 a year to come out when the rich and pampered are still hiding in the closet? How will gays living in Peoria find the fortitude to live honest lives, when the gay denizens of New York and Hollywood won’t?”

Well, now Smith is finally out. Or is he? He’s still doing the winky dance of not talking about it, and not using his platform to help people. The Huffington Post article isn’t really a “coming out,” it just says (in the writer’s words, not Smith’s) that the head of Fox News never told him not to come out. That’s not exactly a Pride parade. But hey, then again, not everyone knows what it’s like to feel pride.

Anyway, here’s a video of Shepard Smith saying “blow job.”
