While Julian Assange twiddles his thumbs in jail and much of the media and most of Washington continues their full-blown, sometimes worrisome, meltdown over the WikiLeaks dump, Shep Smith is standing strong on the side of the leak.

Really strong.

Here’s what he told Judge Napolitano earlier this afternoon.

Is Shep the best anchor on cable TV?  We post, you decide. [Yes.]

Meanwhile, when Napolitano notes that Assange isn’t being afforded due process, Shep points out this isn’t anything new “look at Gitmo.”  Vid below.
