Shepard Smith Sowing Fear of an Iranian Cyber Attack on US Power Grid

Uncategorized Comments (0)

Reporting on the story of a video made for the Department of Homeland Security which simulates a cyber-attack on a powerplant, Fox News’ Shepard Smith attempted to implicate Iran by suggesting the possibility of an imagined cyber attack taking place from “downtown Tehran.”

Considering that the original story makes no mention—overt or otherwise—of Iran, Smith’s explicit assertion of an Iranian cyber threat is indicative of a hostile stance adopted toward Iran by Fox News. Using alarmist rhetoric, Smith has entangled Iran into a story which bears no relevance.
