News anchor delivers Ebola message everyone needs to hear

NEW YORK (WITI) -- Fox News anchor Shepard Smith took three minutes of his show on Wednesday, October 15th to blast the media's Ebola hysteria.

"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.”

Smith also explained that politics has played a role in the way Ebola is being handled.

“With midterm elections coming, the party in charge needs to appear to be effectively leading,” he said. “The party out of power needs to show that there is a lack of leadership.”
