    Fox News anchor Shepard Smith couldn’t believe his ears when he turned to a live news briefing at the State Department Thursday just after of a Malaysian Airlines plane went down over Ukraine.

    A disgusted Smith lashed out at spokesperson Jen Psaki for not leading with the breaking news of the crash.

    “Well this is just highly inappropriate I would say,” Smith said before explaining what set him off.

    “Today a Malaysian Airlines jet has fallen from the sky in a war zone and the State Department is beginning with routine matters,” Smith said shaking his head. “You figure that out, I can’t figure that out.”

    “I can’t believe what just happened,” Smith told his colleague Jennifer Griffin, as he tossed the story to her.

    “That’s the State Department, Shep,” Griffin said. “I’m not surprised.”

    Saw it live. Not strictly unbiased journalism, but it was the reaction of anyone with a brain who saw the briefing. The anchors may as well have said what everyone else was thinking.

    The reason I watch FOX ....

    ..... has everything to do with the honest reporting and candid commentaries. I do not get that on local news. In fact, I can watch local news and spot their liberal spin and bias, and that is something I never picked up on years ago, when local news did a good job at reporting an unbiased story line.

    The media may be learning that Obama is not what they believed him to be, but they still spin in his direction. I guess you can't stop a "top" from spinning in the direction it was built to go in?
