Where Is Fox News’ Shep Smith During and After Worst Mass Shooting in History?

6thumbIn the blistering flurry of news coverage coming out of Orlando, Florida this week following the worst gun massacre in American history, in which a possibly-closeted gunman slaughtered 49 people at a gay bar, some media observers are beginning to wonder about one thing that’s missing. While heavy hitters like Anderson Cooper have been sent from other cable news outlets to cover the aftermath, Fox News mainstay Shep Smith, who reported on location from Brussels following a terror attack there, has been absent this week.

A Fox News spokesperson tells us he’s been on a pre-planned vacation out of the country, he will be returning on June 27th.. If ever there were a story that demanded Smith’s skills, it’s this one, so here’s hoping he comes back soon.
