News anchor delivers Ebola message everyone needs to hear

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith took a few minutes out of his show on Wednesday to talk about the facts of Ebola.

“We do not have an outbreak of Ebola in the United States. Nowhere,” Smith said. “We do have two healthcare workers who contracted the disease from a dying man. They are isolated. There is no information to suggest that the virus has spread to anyone in the general population in America. Not one person in the general population in the United States.”

Watch the video below for his entire message:

    One time you said health care workers doing well? Then later you said they died? Which is it? I know there is no reasons to panic.

    • OneMan'sOpinion

      Looks like he misspoke as he tried to go against the grain.
      Group mentality and fear mongering. Every 2-5 years it is something else. MERS and AIDS and other things that were going to rampantly depopulate the Earth.

      Who are “THEY”? Please tell me who “They” are?

      “They” said we never landed on the moon, 9-11 was an inside job, etc…

    I do not like FOX news, and I never have. Having said that, I’m thankful to see this report coming from Shepard Smith, as it was very needed. He is right, the fear is not based on fact or reason, it is based on ratings. America has the resources to contain the virus, without a doubt, but there are places in the world that do not have that luxury. This is where our fears should be directed, for their safety.

    He used the word ‘is’ when he should have used ‘are’ more than a few times. Discredited in my eyes. Why do people listen to this filth? He is wrong. People should worry about ebola. Worry about it for the thousands of people in Western Africa affected by it every single day. Worry about it for the people who are brave enough to go over there and fight the disease. Do not be as naive as he implies. The CDC claimed that in the U.S. it wouldn’t be possible for the virus to spread. We would be better equipped and informed of anti-contamination procedures. However, this doesn’t seem to be true. The disease is contagious and dangerous. It is deadly and scary. It should be treated that way. We need to worry. We need to help. It is not something we should ignore and put aside as he suggests.
