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

Law Newz, by Ronn Blitzer

Original Article

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

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.

As part of his Russia investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller plans to review the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-linked lawyer, and the email thread that detailed the planning for that meeting, according to a report Tuesday. CNN reported that Mueller will examine the meeting between Trump Jr., former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, President Trump´s adviser and son-in-law, with a Russian attorney who claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr., released an email chain from June 2016 leading up to the meeting showing that he agreed to meet with the attorney who

Former presidential candidate Howard Dean claimed that a "criminal enterprise" is now controlling the United States. (Snip) "The real savior for democracy is going to be Robert Mueller. He´s going to find out what the truth is," said Dean on MSNBC. Dean said even Trump´s supporters know he doesn´t tell the truth, but they back him anyway. He said it´s "beginning to look more and more" like Russia influenced the outcome of the presidential election, citing the "drip, drip, drip" of reports on contacts between the Kremlin and the Trump team.

Washington began its week again with its collective Rorschach test: another Russian-related meeting that was immediately declared to be the “smoking gun” of criminal collusion or even “treason.” In the 1960s when Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach created his projective test, he found that people could reveal their motivations and perceptions in describing what they saw in amorphous inkblots. (Snip) While the participants have said that the meeting lasted only about 20 minutes and that the lawyer offered nothing in terms of such evidence — and instead pivoted to a discussion of rescinding a ban on Russian adoptions — the media

Brad Woodhouse, a longtime Democratic strategist, said President Trump´s speech contained phrases that are "dog whistles" for white nationalist elements. "I don´t think that we should over-analyze speeches written for Donald Trump to read," Woodhouse said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." He said that, instead of looking at the speech as one given by the president, observers should take a look at who likely wrote it. Woodhouse said Trump is "not intellectually curious" and may not realize what he is saying. He said speechwriter Stephen Miller is a friend of former Breitbart editor and White House adviser Stephen Bannon. Woodhouse said

The Senate will delay the start of its annual August recess to give lawmakers more time to work on “important legislative issues” and winnow the backlog of President Trump´s pending nominations, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday. “In order to provide more time to complete action on important legislative items and process nominees that have been stalled by a lack of cooperation from our friends across the aisle, the Senate will delay the start of the August recess until the third week of August,” he said in a statement.

Bill Browder says that he will “definitely” be testifying about a complaint he filed with the Justice Department last year in which he accused Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier, and a former Soviet intelligence officer named Rinat Akhmetshin of violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a law requiring agents of foreign governments to disclose their lobbying and consulting work.

Democrats in Congress are unified in their support for significant federal involvement in healthcare, but they are not unified on the extent of that involvement. Although there have been several reports about growing support for a single-payer system within the Democrat caucus, most Democrats are still apprehensive to embrace a European-style approach, such as the one long-espoused by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in which a national government serves as the sole funder and arbiter of care. A letter sent on Monday by Senate Democrats to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., highlights four potential Obamacare reform proposals, none of which introduces a single-payer

In one of my favorite Westerns, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” Jimmy Stewart reveals to a reporter that he was not the man who killed villain Liberty Valance — a legend that transformed him from a perceived coward to an inspiration hero and resulted in his being elected U.S. senator and ambassador to Great Britain. The seasoned reporter listens to the whole story, but in the end says that he will not print it. He states the rule simply as “[w]hen the legend becomes fact…print the legend.” In many ways, James Comey is the Jimmy Stewart of the media

A growing number of Californians want to secede from the U.S., according to a new poll by Supporters of California Independence. Thirty-three percent of the people surveyed were in favor of the idea, the majority of them saying they are progressives or social Democrats. Many of the respondents were moved to their answer by the current political climate. "About half of our supporters wanted an independent California through democratic and peaceful means before Trump, and then the other half got on board when they realized just how broken American politics have become," said Theo Slater of the California National Party.

Chelsea Clinton was spotted out in the Hamptons over the weekend, enjoying a weekend away with her husband Marc Mezvinsky. The pair were spotted out to dinner on Friday night in Amagansett and then out again the following morning as they went to grab coffee with a friend. Chelsea, 37, was taking a break after promoting her bestselling book ´She Persisted´ for the past month. Her husband, 39, does not currently have a job, so was taking a break from his days of taking a break in New York City. Chelsea kept off social media during her trip out to

t’s easy to see why Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants the TV cameras off during her White House news briefings. There is, for one, the matter of her boss constantly proclaiming things that range from the inexplicable to the patently wrong. There’s also the metastasizing Russia scandal, which keeps rendering previous Trump White House statements inoperative, as Richard Nixon press secretary Ron Ziegler used to say. But above all is a more simple explanation: Sanders has no earthly idea what’s going on in the White House she purports to represent. And so, at Monday’s off-camera briefing, she stood on the podium,

The plane’s debris were scattered in a radius of about five miles. Leflore County Sheriff Ricky Banks told The Associated Press that officials were still searching for bodies after nightfall.
