Did Shephard Smith actually have bad ratings or is that some insult Trump likes to throw around?

The latter is true regardless of the former.

 

Wasn't there a story that Trump changes the channel when Shep comes on?

I still can't get over those bigass screens in the background of his show. How many years have those useless things and people behind him been there now?

 

Aren't those walls of screens usually just green screens?

Last I checked, Shep's ratings were around the same as other Fox shows at the time.

 

Trump makes up the 'bad ratings' thing. EX: he says CNN has bad ratings, but you take a normal day, like last Friday, and Tapper beat Fox and MSNBC during his time slot.

 

Cable news is significantly more competitive now. Maddow was the most-watched news (on cable, broadcast news continuously gets the best ratings and always have) on Wednesday. CNN can be first or second in time slots, and CNN/MSNBC programs routinely win the prized 25-54 demo in their time slot or for the day (even if total viewers are lower).

 

Along with everything else he says, he's lying. Just know that if was conscious when he said it, it's likely untrue.

He said in his last broadcast that he "wouldn't be reporting anywhere else in the near future as part of his agreement" so...

I don't know if it's true all the time, but whenever I saw a Shep segment he seemed like an actual journalist. 

 

He was... especially in the Trump era.

Word going around is that there was a lot of tension between him and Tucker Carlson.

Word? They've been having an open Twitter battle for awhile now.

Depends on the state. 

 

They should be largely illegal outside of executive and sales jobs. Or you should be compensated by your old employer for the time you can't work.

 

Oh often times that's part of a severance package... I'm sure Shep left with a decent amount of money for him to not compete. He was allegedly getting 15 mill a year. Don't know what that mount to in a buyout of his contract. I'm sure they negotiated something.

Non competes are also being used on people working at Jimmy John's and such, which is really a big problem

So if you work at Jimmy Johns, you can't go work at Subway?! I have a Jimmy' Johns next door and a Subway across the street... I eat at both fairly regularly.

 
Why would you do that to your stomach?

I mean, I linked an article discussing it.

 

Yeah it was more of an incredulous response to how absurd the notion of a non-compete clause at a low paying fast food restaurant... I read the article and still had that reaction.

They're not particularly good but better fast food than McDonalds. I prefer Jersey Mike's but they are a little further away.
