A big face palm for HotAir today with the knee jerk reaction to Shepard Smith's pretty blatant sarcasm when "apologizing" for not being fair and balanced.
Shep gets a little smirk when he says the line and makes me think that it was a jab at fairness doctrine advocates.
In the clip, Shep asks when the Democrat candidate will be interviewed, to which she responds that he had ignored multiple requests. Even a longer clip done by Townhall.com has a pretty significant cut in it. I would like to see if the Fairness Doctrine was mentioned in the interview.
