Haters gonna hate, anchors gonna rant

A pro-family activist who fights homosexual activism says a Fox News anchor should be fired for his blatant bias against Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

"People think the Fox News Channel is this right-wing talking points factory – but when it comes to the social issues, Fox News is really stuffed with people who are social liberals. They can't really say much about abortion and they're basically pro-homosexuality. And that's one place where Fox thinks more like midtown Manhattan than the Fox News base so to speak."

"Haters are going to hate," Shepard Smith observed as Fox News aired live footage of Davis being released from jail Tuesday afternoon.

Smith's comments were "snide" and "rude," says Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

"I thought I was watching MSNBC, not Fox News," LaBarbera tells OneNewsNow.

Even before he made the "haters" remark, Smith likened Davis' objection to same-sex marriage to racists opposing interracial marriage in the South.

"This is not unprecedented," Smith told Fox viewers. "They did it when they said black and white people couldn't marry."

Smith also broke in during a pro-Davis rally to compare the revival-like atmosphere to Muslims promoting Sharia law.

"This is the same crowd that doesn't want Sharia law," he observed. 

Smith, 51, has been with Fox News since it started in 1996.

LaBarbera says Smith's description of Davis reminds him of Univision's Jorge Ramos, who has insisted he is a reporter while advocating for illegal immigration. 

LaBarbera says he doubts the executives at Fox will fire Smith over his biased comments.
