United States schools - paddling anecdote

Shepard Smith recalls getting paddled

In this 30-second clip, Fox News TV presenter Shepard Smith describes getting paddled by the headmaster at Marshall Academy in Holly Springs, Mississippi, presumably in the late 1970s (he was born in 1964). He says he deserved it and it was the right thing to do.

The date of the clip is unknown. Smith's co-presenter is still focused on their previous subject and is not listening to what he is saying.
