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

Mediaite, by Colby Hall

Original Article

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.

Great news.

Now, drain the rest of that fetid Fox pinkodemocraptik swamp operating as "fair and balanced".

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!

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."

WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and

The largest super PAC to back Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s 2016 presidential campaign has been quietly emailing his supporters over the last couple of months to promote the governor’s positions on national issues and soliciting donations. Kasich recently embarked on a tour promoting a new campaign-style book and is widely thought within political circles to be positioning himself to challenge President Trump in the 2020 election. The super PAC, Kasich for America, blasted out an email to supporters Sunday night as the Republican health care bill in the Senate looked to be on its last legs. The PAC highlighted Kasich’s

For felony defendants, this will begin Sept. 18, but those facing misdemeanor cases will have to wait until January. “I think people who are arrested will be given the full recognition that they are presumed innocent,” Cook County Chief Judge Timothy Evans, who signed the order for the new policy, told the Chicago Tribune.

Being Waged by Republicans

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Wednesday that Republicans are trying to "trample on our most sacred freedoms." The comments were part of Perez´s Time magazine op-ed written in response to President Donald Trump´s Voter Integrity Commission. "There seems to be no limit to how far Republicans will go to disenfranchise certain voters," Perez said. Perez called Trump´s commission a "propaganda factory" with a true purpose of "justifying the Republican Party’s broader vote suppression efforts." Trump established the panel after claiming that millions of non-citizens voted in the 2016 election. The president´s sweeping claims have remained unsubstantiated. Some level of voter fraud

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) slammed President Trump´s voter fraud panel on Wednesday, arguing that the real motive behind the presidential commission was to "suppress the vote." In a series of tweets, Cummings went after the commission for not investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and accused the panel´s vice chairman, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, of not respecting voters´ personal information. (Snip) Cummings on Wednesday pointed to an era of African-Americans being "denied access to the ballot box" in criticizing the panel, saying he feared that "history is repeating itself."

The United States Postal Service violated federal law by letting employees do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton´s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency, according to an Office of Special Counsel report obtained by Fox News. The OSC determined the USPS "engaged in systemic violations" of the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits certain political activities of federal employees. While employees are allowed to do some political work on leave, the report said the Postal Service showed a "bias" favoring the union´s 2016 campaign operation.

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting.

Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."

Target Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell is sounding alarm bells over the state of Hispanic shoppers in the U.S. -- a key growth demographic for many retailers and consumer brands. “The Hispanic consumer in the U.S. is shopping much less,” Cornell said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event Tuesday in Aspen, Colorado. “They are staying home. They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough ‘women’ or ‘people of color’ in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nailbiting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be jarring as you

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly "miserable" and can´t wait for the next four years to end. A friend of President Trump´s sons told People that Trump Jr. and Eric Trump "never wanted this." “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable," a source in their circle added. Trump Jr. is facing backlash after news surfaced earlier this month that he took a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer. Last week, Trump Jr. released a chain of emails detailing his conversations about setting up the meeting with the Russian
