Shepard Smith has always been the mystery man of Fox News. Part amiable frat boy and part devilish Batman villain, Smith is quick to defend the network he works for, but rarely the ideology associated with it. We learned a few other things about Shep yesterday: He has a lawyer; he doesn't like torture; and he makes unusual language choices for a television newsman on camera.



Smith may not be on the list of most loved or most hated news talking heads (though his f-bomb may land him on next year's list), but plenty of his colleagues are.
