[See NewsBusters for more.] Gayle King and the journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday grilled Fox News anchor Bret Baier about the departure of Shepard Smith from the network, baiting him to divine what exactly Smith meant when he said that the “truth will always matter.” Co-host Tony Dokoupil highlighted, “I think it surprised a lot of people at the network. [Smith] said in his closing remarks, ‘The truth will always matter.’ What was your reaction?” After failing to get an appropriate knock on Fox News, King demanded, “But I want to go back to Shep for a second. To Tony’s point, when he said the truth will always matter, that seemed to be taking a dig at your network. Was it interpreted as such inside the building?”
