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

Mediaite, by Colby Hall

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.

BB is a typical leftist, hypocritical, porcine rummy.

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!

DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo´s
life sentence thrown out
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.-area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday. (Snip) Malvo appealed to the court saying he should not have been sentenced to life without parole because he was 17 years old at the time of the murders and he based his appeal on the Supreme Court ruling in Miller v. Alabama. The decision in the Supreme Court case ruled juveniles are constitutionally different from adults for the purposes of sentencing "because juveniles have diminished culpability

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) spoke Friday at an LGBT rights event at the Pride Center at Equality Park of South Florida, where she touted how liberals in the Democratic Party only voted for the nation´s defense spending bill for fiscal year 2011 so they could repeal "Don´t Ask, Don´t Tell." "Don´t tell anybody I told you this," Pelosi said, before explaining how she was able to get liberal Democrats onboard to support the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the annual federal law that specifies the Defense Department´s budget and expenditures.

Dem Bill Would Require ‘Good

WASHINGTON – Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) last week introduced legislation that would require “good cause” for the president to dismiss the director of the FBI, while calling President Trump’s decision to fire James B. Comey “disturbing.” Trump on May 9 dismissed the FBI director, subsequently producing memos from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Comey’s job performance. Rosenstein criticized Comey’s handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in 2015, stating that the FBI director had made serious mistakes. Comey’s firing came six days after he briefed

A GoFundMe page was launched on Thursday to replace the glasses owned by Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the Guardian who was allegedly body slammed by then-candidate for Montana´s U.S. House seat Greg Gianforte on Wednesday. The GoFundMe page was originally titled: "Help Ben Jacobs buy new glasses" but has since changed to "Help Protect Journalists," after Jacobs responded to the fundraising page by saying he appreciated the gesture, but would like all donations to go to the Committee to Protest Journalists.

Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities

A leading young Democrat and de Blasio administration employee has a secret taste for sickening kiddie porn that involves baby girls as young as 6 months old, court papers revealed Friday. Jacob Schwartz, 29, was busted for allegedly keeping more than 3,000 disgusting images and 89 videos on a laptop after downloading the filth from the internet. The illegal smut shows “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male,” court papers say.

Two Chinese J-10 fighter jets flew within 200 yards of a U.S. Navy P-3 surveillance plane approximately 150 miles southeast of Hong Kong in international airspace this week, a U.S. defense official told Fox News on Friday. The official said the Chinese fighter jets were “unsafe” in their actions toward the U.S. reconnaissance plane Wednesday. One of the Chinese jets flew out in front of the Navy plane before conducting a series of slow turns which the American crew considered unsafe, the official added. Describing why cutting off another plane at high speeds in the air is dangerous, the official said, “You

"The president is thinking about what his options are and is taking in what he learned from world leaders today," Cohn said.

The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy. And above all, most of these journalists realize, and sometimes admit, that they want to help the Democrats win the next election.

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie." But Clinton is doing more than just talking about Trump as a once

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure.

A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one.
