Man curses at Shepard Smith

Given all the ridiculous saturation of media coverage over hurricane Katrina this makes me chuckle inside. Below is a summary of a conversation Shepard Smith of Fox News had with a man who is currently waiting out the storm:

SHEPARD SMITH: You’re live on FOX News Channel, what are you doing?
MAN: Walking my dogs.
SMITH: Why are you still here? I’m just curious.
MAN: None of your fucking business.
SMITH: Oh that was a good answer, wasn’t it? That was live on international television. Thanks so much for that. You know we apologize. I'm watching two dogs drink out of a glass of ice water, and it's none of my business why they are still here."

Well spoken Mr Smith. Granted this hurricane is a huge news story, but really is coverage like how a man walks his dogs really necessary? I kind of wish Shepard Smith would've whooped out a pair of numchucks and declared himself the honorable Fox News ninja and beaten the guy for saying the word of curse. He would then stare into the camera declaring how he would boldly go from state to state enforcing the agenda of Rupert Murdoch armed with a broadsword. Those who fail to believe the ways of O'Reilly will be taken prisoner in a Fox News concentration camp. All resistance will be met with deadly swinging of said sword.

I think all Fox News anchors secretly wish to be such a ninja.
