Attorneys Blast Fox for Not Giving
Whole Story Behind Bob Beckel Firing

Law Newz, by Ronn Blitzer

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/19/2017 10:06:50 PM

On Friday, Fox News announced the termination of Bob Beckel, one of the hosts of the network’s show, “The Five.” A statement from the network reported by Variety, said, “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee.” Now, the law firm representing that employee—as well as more than a dozen other current and former employees in discrimination lawsuits against Fox News and parent company 21st Century Fox—is bashing the network for not giving the whole story. Attorneys Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, who represent the employee who Beckel reportedly insulted, gave a little more

Comments:
Can you even believe this? Fox fires Beckel (not that I´m unhappy about that) and the attorney for the guy complaining is still not happy. This is the same attorney, Douglas H. Wigdor, who on the same day Roger Ailes died. said it gives the accusers a great advantage. Link below. Good. Grief. The body isn´t even cold and he has to make such a crass statement.

Hard to believe that Beckel left his office because the IT tech was black, and was silly enough to say so. What is the rest of the story?

The term racist is so over used. You would think everyone is racist now. If you have an opinion about someone you are called a racist. So what, who cares if you are called a name. Get over it.

You have to admit the the story of a dedicated leftist like Beckel getting hoist on a racist Petard is, uh, imaginative.

This happened on Tuesday. Bob wasn´t on the show Thursday. It was announced he was fired Friday.

As the case was a "he said, he said" there was need and time to investigate, complete paperwork. No one had been physically attacked, raped, or murdered warranting an immediate firing.

This is utter nonsense. I´m thinking FOX was looking for a way to fire Bob.

Can´t stand Beckel. But it sounds more like a lame attempt at humor than a racist remark. Story sounds fishy. Beckel wouldn´t know how to use a can opener much less a computer.

They had just hired the fool back, after a several month hiatus. Poor Juan, having to work double duty as the house liberal.

Beckel must have been rehired for the sole purpose of aiding and abetting the takedown of Fox News.

Clinton: GOP will become the
´death party´ if Senate bill passes
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/23/2017 9:20:24 PM     Post Reply
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

Former Obama advisor calls
Fox ‘state sanctioned media’
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Julia Manchester    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/23/2017 9:11:28 PM     Post Reply
Former President Obama’s foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes implied Fox News was state-sanctioned media on Friday. “Avoiding on camera questions from independent media and favoring a state-sanctioned outlet would be cause for concern in any country,” Rhodes said in a tweet, linking to another tweet about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer´s interview with the network. (Snip) Rhodes comment comes as the White House takes criticism for refusing to hold on-camera press briefings. CNN anchor John King also blasted Fox News’ close relationship with President Trump earlier in the day, calling the media organization “State TV” after accusing

Blumenthal, Matthews Swoon:

Further illustrating the blatant collusion between the Democratic Party and the news media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) spent Wednesday night predicting that history will look back on the Trump era and conclude the liberal media were “the heroes” who stood for decency and truth. Matthews swooned to Jeremy Peters of The New York Times that “one thing that is important from your end from The New York Times and the other great papers of the country is the public knew” nothing about the supposed Russia-Trump team ties since the Trump administration wouldn’t admit

Bald eagle takes the bait, swipes

A man fishing in British Columbia Friday managed to capture a slow-motion video of an eagle swooping down and taking the bait he was about to use to catch fish. Ashton Phillips was trying to take a picture of the bald eagle circling his boat, but instead of getting a great picture, he watched as it took away with salmon. “I saw this one eagle kind of circling and it was along the shoreline, so I took out my camera to snap a picture of it,” said Phillips. “All of a sudden out of nowhere, it started heading toward the

Events are turning me into a radical skeptic. I no longer believe what I read, unless what I am reading is an empirically verifiable account of the past. I no longer have confidence in polls, because it has become impossible to separate the signal from the noise. What I have heard from the media and political class over the last several years has been so spectacularly proven wrong by events, again and again, that I sometimes wonder why I continue to read two newspapers a day before spending time following journalists on Twitter. Habit, I guess. A sense of professional

RUSH: It’s 36 pages. It prints out on my printer (12-point font) to 36 pages. In a newspaper, 36 pages, and there’s nothing new in it! It’s incredible! It used to take me 25 minutes to mark this up. I finally, for the first time, used side by side on my laptop to do the markup instead of copy and paste. Well, I copied and pasted it but was side by side looking at… (interruption) No, the Washington Post has this incredible story: Obama’s Brave Struggle to Stop Russia from Tampering with Our Election. Not a thing new in it!

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying

California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article. That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out. (Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the
