Mediaite reported that Fox News’s Shepard Smith apparently ended an interview after learning that the interviewee, Symantic group president Francis Desouza, has connections with Google.  Symantic is a computer and information security company.  Desouza was making “complimentary comments” about Google on air, according to Mediaite.

Desouza reportedly stated that Google “deserves a lot of credit for coming forward and talking about” hacks on Google email accounts.  Smith then asked if Desouza had business relationship with Google and when Desouza said yes, Smith ended the interview.
