He's finally free!

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith came out as gay on Monday, October 17. After years of speculation by various news outlets like Gawker, Smith finally feel comfortable with sharing his sexuality with his viewers.

Of course, working for a conservative network most likely hindered him doing it earlier, didn’t it? Now, people are assuming that there was tension with former Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes, founder of the channel. But what did Smith have to say about Ailes and is it a conflict of interest for the conservative outlet?
