Fox News host Tucker Carlson spoke out Thursday night to relentlessly mock his former colleague Shep Smith and continue the long-standing feud they have.
Carlson mocks Smith
Smith left Fox News in late 2019 and has since taken a hosting job at CNBC, where he vowed to "fight disinformation." Carlson followed up Smith on his show Thursday night to tell a story his former coworker recently shared.
"Tonight we bring you the story of a real investigative journalist," Carlson said mockingly. "A man who has been forgotten. Throw it aside like an Acosta when he's supposed to be an Edward R. Murrow. This is an injustice that we want to correct now."
Carlson ridiculed Smith for reporting the "Maskess Supermarket" scandal, according to The Daily Beast.
"Last night, the same investigative journalist – now an anchor at CNBC – broke the story of his life," he added. "If Pulitzer Awards were still important and they weren't, this would get a Pulitzer." You saw the Zapruder movie. You saw the moon land. You have never seen anything like it. "
Carlson then played Smith's story, in which the former Fox News host said the scene looked "pre-pandemic" while commenting on the maskless people in the store.
"We believed the hype, I think," said Carlson. "Maybe it all seems like a chase after reading chase scripts for 30 years."
"The problem is that not everything is a chase," he concluded. “Sometimes people just smile at each other in a grocery store. Sorry, overheated news guy. This is actually not news. "

Smith attacks Fox News
This came after Smith attacked Fox in a recent interview and turned on the network that made him famous.
"I stayed with it as long as I could," Smith told PBS host Christiane Amanpour. "I don't know how some people sleep at night."
"Because I know there are many people who have spread the lies and pushed them back, who are smart enough and educated enough to know better," he added.
