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.

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.

She’s one of the last surviving legends of Hollywood’s golden age. Her beauty and enigmatic smile saw Olivia de Havilland play alongside the biggest names of the silver screen – Errol Flynn, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift. (Snip) But it is only now – two weeks before her 101st birthday – that the Gone With The Wind actress has been given a damehood for services to drama. It makes her the oldest woman ever to receive the honour. In a statement, she called it ‘the most gratifying of birthday presents’. For all her talent in front of the cameras, Dame

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights says it is launching a two-year “comprehensive assessment” into the Trump administration, in light of proposed budget cuts and staff eliminations that it says will cause the civil rights of people of color, the LGBT community, and other “marginalized” groups to be at risk. (Snip) The press statement says the commission is especially concerned with what it perceives as the Department of Justice “minimizing its civil rights efforts” by placing ICE officers in courthouses and by not emphasizing the need for protection for the LGBT community or the disabled.

Virginia Gov. and 2020 presidential hopeful Terry McAuliffe´s heated call for gun control just hours after this week´s targeted shooting of Republican lawmakers by an anti-Trump activist is being mocked by a top NRA personality. "Like an anti-gun agenda crackhead, he couldn´t help himself and just started blurting out every canned anti-gun talking point he had," said NRA TV´s Colion Noir. "Here´s what I´ve come to realize: for anti-gun politicians, gun control is what you talk about when you don´t want to talk about the truth," he added in a new posting.

President Trump is poaching from House Republicans for his top bank regulator. The White House announced Friday evening that Trump intends to nominate James Clinger, counsel of the House Financial Services Committee, to chair the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the agency tasked with insuring banks´ deposits and protecting them in the case of a bank failure. Clinger would first be nominated to be a member of the FDIC, and then to replace current chairman, Martin Gruenberg, when his five-year term runs out in November. As chair of the FDIC, Clinger would be responsible for regulating banks to prevent failures that

A New Jersey Democratic strategist has refused to apologize for tweeting #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen in the aftermath of Wednesday’s assassination attempt of Republican members of Congress. According to MyCentralJersey.com, Jim Devine has been involved in politics for 35 years and previously worked on campaigns for New Jersey Assemblyman James Kennedy and state Sen. Raymond Lesniak. Just hours after a leftist gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and two Capitol police officers, Mr. Devine took to Twitter to smear the Republican congressman. “In 2002, Scalise was

CHRISTIANA, Tenn. — Pruitt Road residents in this rural Rutherford County town were on guard when fugitives Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe came their way on the third day of the manhunt for the accused killers. Bordering hundreds of acres of lush forest, the two-lane road winds through the countryside. Wild turkeys wander the road, and dogs run free on the rolling hills. Aware of a freeway chase and gunfire on nearby Interstate 24, Patrick Hale said he loaded every gun in his house after neighbors called to say that two fugitives were possibly headed his way.

Seven sailors are missing after the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel just southwest of Yokosuka, Japan, according to Japan´s NHK news network. The Fitzgerald´s crew is fighting to save the ship, according to three sources with knowledge of internal reports. The commanding officer was incapacitated in the accident and the executive officer is in command. The Fitzgerald suffered extensive damage beneath the waterline. Initial reports suggested that Auxiliary Machine Room 1 and two crew berthings were completely flooded. Because the collision occurred around 2:30 a.m., most crew members not standing watch would be in the berthing.

One of the terrorists who carried out the deadly London Bridge attack in England this month fought in an affiliate of Senator John McCain’s beloved Free Syrian Army (FSA) in Libya, supporting the U.S.-backed effort to topple Muammar Gaddafi. His name is Rachid Redouane and, after fighting in the Libyan revolution with the Tripoli-based group Liwa al Ummah, he joined a militia that deployed jihadist fighters to Syria. The unit fought alongside Al-Qaeda extremists in Syria, according to a British newspaper story that says Redouane’s plea for asylum in the United Kingdom was rejected in 2009 though he continued living

Lawyers frequently say that “you can indict a ham sandwich.” Since grand juries only hear the prosecution side of the case, you are virtually assured of a true bill. Unfortunately, this also applies to special counsels and special prosecutors. (Snip) Mueller folded like a cheap suitcase in 2012 when Muslim subject-matter experts demanded the FBI purge thousands of pages in training manuals. They were allowed to remove any references to Islam that at they found offensive. Words and phrases that included the words "jihad," "radical Muslim," etc. were deleted. This action created a politically correct version of the FBI counterterrorism

WASHINGTON – In reaction to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) urged members of Congress to think about “sharing prosperity” to the “have-nots” instead of keeping the wealth to themselves and their friends. Johnson also said lawmakers and the general public need to act more like human beings and less like “animals” when they debate public policy issues. The man who shot Scalise in Alexandria, Va., on Wednesday while GOP members of Congress were practicing for tonight’s annual charity baseball game was identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, a Bernie Sanders presidential campaign volunteer

President Trump resurrected one of his most brutal and repeated attacks from the 2016 campaign, blasting ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton less than 24 hours after calling for national unity after the congressional baseball shooting. Trump slammed his former political rival in a series of tweets Thursday afternoon. ´Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ´bleached´ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?´ Trump asked, combining his attacks on Clinton with gripes about the evolving Russia investigation. The tweet revived two attacks from the 2016 campaign, that a Clinton aide destroyed some of her

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar. But while the survey has attracted snorts and jeers from some corners — “um, guys, [milk] comes from cows — and not just the brown kind,” snarked Food & Wine — the most surprising thing about this figure may

So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington. Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park. Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for

LANCASTER, N.Y.- At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold - using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by
