Thank you, New Orleans

It takes a hurricane to get someone to articulate what should have been said to the cable networks long ago:

SHEPARD SMITH: You’re live on FOX News Channel, what are you doing?

MAN: Walking my dogs.

SMITH: Why are you still here? I’m just curious.

MAN: None of your fucking business.

I saw Shepard Smith briefly this morning. He appeared to have only a limited grasp of what was going on around him - whether the city was going under, what damage had occurred, etc. They had to bring on a New Orleans Fox station anchor a little later to clear up some of his goofs.
