A muckraking website claims that Fox News pressured news anchor Shepard Smith not to "come out" about his supposed gay lifestyle.

Gawker.com, citing "multiple sources," claims that Smith decided last summer the time was right for a full disclosure about his lifestyle, but that Fox News honcho Roger Ailes quashed the idea, saying the network was not ready for a gay anchor.

Both Smith and Ailes have issued denials of the story, but it does raise an interesting question: would you really care if your favorite news anchor is gay?
