“On Monday, Fox released a brief video of the studio, complete with gigantic touch screens as workstations with ‘groundbreaking’ software that will allow Smith’s team to track and monitor breaking stories on social media,” Logiurato reports. “In an interview with Business Insider last month, Smith explained that he will play the role of gatekeeper — taking what the team tracks and verifies from social media and bringing it to viewers. It’s part of a push from the network to modernize the way news is presented by ‘escaping the boundaries of the traditional evening newscast.’”
Jack Mirkinson reports for The Huffington Post, “Yes, Fox News bought Shep Smith a bunch of crazy-giant iPad looking things for his brand-new breaking news ‘Fox News Deck’ venture and the way everything looks is just blowing the Internet’s mind right now.”
