Bob Beckel Fired by Fox News
for ‘Making Insensitive Remark
to an African-American’ Staffer

Mediaite, by Colby Hall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/19/2017 12:33:48 PM

Well that didn’t last long. Bob Beckel has been fired by Fox News just shortly after returning to air. Beckel, who played the part of the Washington Generals “token liberal” on The Five left the network in mid 2015, but recently came back just as his show moved to a coveted prime time slot at 9PM. Ratings for the new prime time line up have not been great since moving from the 5PM slot, as last week MSNBC enjoy According to Brian Steinberg, writing for Variety: “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,”

Comments:
Excellent! Now they can get rid of Geraldo, Juan, Shemp, Harf, Emanuel, et al. Good riddance to bad rubbish. That still won´t help The Five. Perino´s constant attacks on Watters is beyond irritating.

I nominiate OP to be head of Fox News. And I totally agree about Dana Purina.

Beckel was intolerable. Juan Williams is merely insufferable.

But to be honest, I can´t really judge since as soon as The Shrive comes on after Tucker I flip the channel asap.

´´Juan Williams is soon to get more air time on The Five or a new left-of-center commenter is about to get a new job. ´´ Like we need more of that idiot. And Dana PeRINO has got to go...go to CNN, bsnbc, etc. She has been a real pain and a detractor along with Kat Whatshername. Those two are AWFUL and don´t watch when they are on.

Good riddance to Bechel. He was rude, crude,
disgusting distasteful, acting as though was in a run-down bar all boozed up. OFFENSIVE!
FOX has got to grow up and leave this socialist crowd behind them or they will be kicked to the curb very soon.

Cut the cable last year when Fox showed sure signs it was heading left, but was traveling and had it on in the hotel for all of three minutes until I heard his voice, looked at the T.V. and then promptly turned it off. Best decision I made was cutting the cable......do it folks....if your just hanging in there for Hannity, Tucker and a few more your only avoiding the inevitable. Don´t be the last person to exit the building.

Not sure I´m buying it. The black employee has the same attorneys that are representing a dozen other black employees against Fox. The attorneys also say the supervisor tried to intimidate the black employee into dropping his charges.

Can see Beckel losing his cool. He is fighting his own personal demons. Nothing in the article saying Beckel admitted to doing anything inappropriate. Is there any proof? Can also see this as another gotcha against Fox.

Check out the video embedded in the original article. He dropped and F-bomb on Fox News in 2012 -- and refused to accept responsibility! Just awful.

We can´t know exactly what happened with the IT guy, but Beckel has been a loose cannon on the air for a long time.

#12 is right, the Murdoch boys have ruined FN as a cash cow (25% of NewsCorp´s profits in Roger Ailes´s day), and they´ll rue the day they fired him. They seem to bring that peculiar brand of Australian PC to their executive roles, and don´t seem to realize that the world doesn´t dance to their tune.

Since he returned in February, Beckel has rarely offered anything more than rudeness and practiced fake laughter at conservative arguments. Better that he look for work on, say, MSNBC.

I don´t think firing him is going to save the show, even though it´s a step in the right direction. FOX needs to find someone good to replace Eric Bolling who was a great part of The Five cast. Word is that Kimberly is looking for a spot in The White House and nobody likes Dana the Bush lover/Trump Hater! Nope, I think The Five is on Life Support!

Att Bob : This is the second time you have been fired by FOX. You are becoming the Billy Martin of the FOX newsroom. This will not look good on a resume when you have to apply for a job. Try Glenn Beck at the Blaze or the lib favorite NBC.

Some people have little to no class at all. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is one of those people. Waters was invited to deliver a eulogy at the funeral for civil rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory. However, instead of merely remembering and celebrating the life of Gregory, Waters decided to railroad President Trump, because — well, she’s Maxine Waters. “I’m cleaning out the White House,” Waters said in her typical arrogant fashion. “We’re going to sanitize the White House.” Not only did Waters not respect the tradition of giving a eulogy, but she used extreme terms like “sanitize” in order to convince

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs

Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC Saturday that women who support President Trump are “publicly disrespecting themselves.” (VideoTweet) “When I see women doing that, I think, ‘Why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace, in a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?´” Clinton told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on AM Joy. Clinton commented about the Trump-supporting women after Reid asked her about pro-Trump women wearing shirts with profanities directed at Clinton. The former 2016 presidential candidate added that she thought it was “troubling” to hear about

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
