Shepard Smith, longtime host of the nightly "Fox Report," is Fox News Channel's No. 1 anchor. That's thanks in part to his mix of folksy accessibility and anchor-worthy gravitas, which have earned him a perch at Politico.com, where his news clips are regularly featured in a regular column, the Daily Shep. So you were on smoke watch in Rome. How did Fox News cover the papal conclave and what was that scene like? Well, I did it in '05, and it was different because it began in a mourning phase [for Pope John Paul II]

Fox News unveiled its new hi-tech newsroom set, called the Fox News Deck, in a video posted Monday. And among the new bells and whistles are what appear to be giant iPads that the staff will use to gather news. Actually, the large 55-inch touchscreen monitors are what Smith calls BATS (big area touchscreens), and they're just one of the flashy gadgets the new set will feature when it debuts with "Shepard Smith Reporting" on Monday afternoon. Smith also revealed a Wii-like controller wand that lets him manipulate the images on the set's 38-foot video wall.

Shepard Smith, the news anchor with the fastest Mississippi drawl on television, has been a rising star in cable news this year: The Fox News Channel personality has the top-rated newscast (as opposed to talk show), and in October and November his "Fox Report" passed CNN's Larry King to take the No. 3 spot overall. He's ahead so far this month too. But there's always room for more viewers.

Fox News has signed Shepard Smith to a new long-term contract and is creating a breaking news division for the anchor to oversee. Smith, who currently anchors a 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. newscast, will give up his early evening duties. However, Fox News executives said his visibility on the network will actually increase in his new role, which goes into effect this fall. “Shep's strength in breaking news and on location anchoring and reporting remains unmatched, and that's why we are committed to fully utilizing his skills away from the teleprompter whenever and wherever news is breaking across multiple platforms," said Michael Clemente, executive vice president of news.

Slipping into a tracking booth to record headlines for his national newscast, Shepard Smith bellows: "Bus meets semi in Florida, children critically injured." Why is Smith trumpeting a local accident as his third major story, before the FBI's blunders in failing to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers? "Good pictures, and kids are involved," he says. They call him the anti-anchor here in the Fox News building, the sometimes-smirking man from Holly Springs, Miss.

Think those Double Stuf Oreos are really double-stuffed? Well think again. A New York high school math class found the cookies don't really live up to their name.  Dan Anderson, a math teacher from Queensbury, N.Y., assigned his students an experiment to see whether Oreo Double Stuf Cookies contain twice as much creme filling as their original counterparts. After weighing and measuring, the students concluded that Double Stuf Oreos contain only 1.86 times as much filling.

IT was the day after Bill Clinton lost his temper on "Fox News Sunday," and the video of the red-faced former president wagging his finger at Chris Wallace, accusing him of a "conservative hit job," was running on an almost constant loop on the top-rated cable news network. One anchor, however, made no mention of the episode. "I just wanted to stay away from it," said Shepard Smith, the 42-year-old Mississippi native who hosts two daily programs on Fox News Channel.

President Bush's scheduled meeting today in Amman, Jordan, with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki is drawing quite a crowd. All three network news anchors -- NBC's Brian Williams, ABC's Charles Gibson and CBS' Katie Couric -- are planning to anchor their newscasts from there this evening. (This marks Couric's first foreign trip since assuming the anchor chair in September.) Fox News' Shepard Smith and CNN's Anderson Cooper will be on hand to cover the summit too.

A Fox Network news anchor was arrested and accused of hitting another journalist with his car in an apparent dispute over a parking space. Witnesses told police that Shepard Smith, who hosts "The Fox Report," ran his car into Maureen Walsh, a journalist for a local cable network, when she tried to save a rare open parking spot for co-workers at the Capitol complex where the media are covering the Florida presidential vote recount.
