Shepard Smith captured the news spotlight yesterday with his reasonable and logical reporting on the two health care workers in Dallas that are now in treatment for the Ebola virus.

Take three minutes, and watch Shepard's calm and factual statements about the presence of Ebola in our country.

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. Suggestions have been made publicly that leaders and medical professionals may be lying to us. Those suggestions are completely without basis in fact. There is no evidence of any kind, of which we at Fox News are aware, that leaders have lied about anything regarding Ebola. I report to you with certainty this afternoon that being afraid at all is the wrong thing to do. Being “petrified,” and that’s a quote, is ridiculous. The panic that has tanked the stock market and left people fearful that their children will get sick at school is counterproductive and lacks basis in fact or reason.
