“Shep Smith needs to be fired for his biased reporting!”

This was the opinion of just one angry viewer who took to social media to express their opinion of the Fox News chief anchor after he attempted to defend the Clintons from allegations of wrong-doing and collusion in the Uranium One scandal.

In a six-minute segment on his Shepard Smith Reporting daytime news program, the liberal anchor began by laying out the specifics of the sale of 20 percent of the U.S. supply of uranium to Uranium One, a Canadian company that was acquired by a Russian firm.

Smith, who is the chief news anchor and managing editor for the cable network’s breaking news division, is a liberal voice for the conservative-leaning Fox where he has been a part of the picture since 1996.

But his effort to exonerate Hillary Clinton’s actions in furthering the uranium sale while she served as President Obama’s first secretary of state, did not sit well with the viewing audience.

Republicans have called for an investigation into the sale, which resulted in a huge financial windfall to the Clintons, personally and through their family foundation.

Former President Bill Clinton drew a record-breaking $500,000 for a speech in Moscow that afforded him face time with Russian President Vladimir Putin shortly after his wife OK’d the uranium deal.

In addition, the Clinton Family Foundation received a “donation” of $145,000 million after the deal was completed.

While Clinton and her defenders, like Shepard, claim that no uranium has been moved from the United States, that is not, in fact, true.

Uranium is the foundational material for nuclear weapons.

Smith has often found himself the lone, token liberal at Fox, where his conservative colleagues have supported calls for an investigation into Clinton’s “pay-to-play” schemes.

In the course of his career, Smith has covered the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the Boston Marathon bombing, the terror attacks in Paris in November 2015, and the Ferguson riots following the death of Michael Brown, as well as other major news stories.

His credentials, however, won’t protect him from criticism for taking the side of the Clinton’s as the facts lead to questions about their actions while Hillary was in office.

Do you think FOX News anchor Shepard Smith went too far in defending Hillary Clinton from accusations that she ran a pay-to-play racket out of her office when she served as Obama's first Secretary of State?
