UPDATE: WE ERRONEOUSLY LISTED CHRIS WALLACE AS CHRIS MATTHEWS EARLIER. IT HAS BEEN CORRECTED
We have been writing here for some time to generally praise Shep Smith, The Murdoch Device's only real journalist. He doesn't often add his voice to the commentariat wing on the network, but when he does, it serves to illustrate why we like him. Speaking to Chris Wallace, he praised Jon Stewart's coverage on the obscene GOP filibuster of the bill to provide health care to the brave men and women who rushed in to help on that terrible day. The money quote:
“We're able to pay for tax cuts for billionaires who don't need them and it's not going to stimulate the economy. But we can't give health care to Ground Zero first responders who ran right into the fire?"
