Fox & Friends’ viewers became upset on Sunday after finding out that anchor Shepard Smith had the audacity to cover Hurricane Irma for the last two hours of the morning show. How dare he cover this deadly force which is targeting Florida?
Raw Story reports that Fox & Friends is scheduled to air until 10:00 a.m. ET on Sundays, but the hosts were forced to hand off the broadcast to Smith at 8:00 a.m. as the Hurricane barrelled down on the peninsula.
Hurricane Irma’s status is back up to a category 4 and packing winds of 130 miles per hour but apparently, that’s not newsworthy.

@FoxNews pretty bad when we would rather watch CNN than listen to or see Shep Smith. You’re losing viewers by trying to force him on us!
