Shepard Smith Makes Huge Donation To Protect Journalists

Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is donating half a million dollars to ensure journalists around the world are protected.

Speaking at this week’s International Press Freedom Awards, Smith announced he was giving $500,000 to the Committee to Protect Journalists, telling the crowd that “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon”.

It was Shep’s first public speech since leaving Fox News last month after 23 years at the network.
