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

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.

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.

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

Whatever. We’ve been through around eight iterations of “Republicans ready to dump Trump” since the primaries began last year. They didn’t do it at the convention, they didn’t do it after the “Access Hollywood” tape, they’re not going to do it over his Charlottesville spin, and they’re not going to do it for Mueller unless he finds something so foul as to leave Ryan no choice politically.

Out of this week’s orgy of self-righteousness has come toppled statues in the South, a vandalized Lincoln Memorial in the North, a Democratic state senator in the Midwest calling for the assassination of President Trump, and numerous other examples of “progressive” barbarism. It tells you everything you need to know about the rancid condition of “higher education” that the scenes of the greatest irrationality in America today take place in university towns.

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon returned as Executive Chairman of Breitbart News Friday afternoon and chaired the company’s evening editorial meeting. (Snip) “The populist-nationalist movement got a lot stronger today,” said Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow. “Breitbart gained an executive chairman with his finger on the pulse of the Trump agenda.” Breitbart News CEO and President Larry Solov agreed. “Breitbart’s pace of global expansion will only accelerate with Steve back,” said Solov. “The sky’s the limit.” Bannon joined the Trump campaign on August 17, 2016 — nearly one year ago to the day of his return to

At Senator Menendez’s Trial,

When Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks, far more than his own fate hinges on the outcome. If Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, is convicted and then expelled from the United States Senate by early January, his replacement would be picked by Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey and an ally of President Trump. That scenario — where Mr. Menendez’s interim replacement would more than likely be a Republican — would have immediate and far-reaching implications: The Republicans would be gifted a crucial extra vote just

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.

TURKU, Finland - A man with a knife killed two people and wounded at least six in a stabbing rampage in a market square in the Finnish city of Turku on Friday, police said. Police shot the suspected attacker in the leg and arrested him. They said they had yet to establish the identity of the man who appeared to be of foreign origin, or his motive. They warned people to stay away from the city and reinforced security nationwide, with increased patrols and more surveillance, in case more people were involved. People were allowed to return to the city

Sen. Tim Scott said Thursday that President Trump had lost "moral authority" in the aftermath of the weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., according to a report. "I´m not going to defend the indefensible," the South Carolina Republican told Vice News, referring to the president´s comments about the deadly unrest at a Unite the Right rally held in the Virginia city Saturday.

RUSH: America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun.

SPOKANE, Wash. - A settlement has been reached in a landmark lawsuit that the American Civil Liberties Union brought against two psychologists involved in designing the CIA´s harsh interrogation program used in the war on terror. The deal announced Thursday marked the first time the CIA or its private contractors have been held accountable for the torture program, which began as a result of the attacks on Sept. 11, said professor Deborah Pearlstein of the Cardozo Law School in New York. "This sends a signal to those who might consider doing this in the future," Pearlstein said. "There are consequences

Pervy pol Anthony Weiner wants to reschedule his sentencing for texting an underage teen, a new court document indicates. The serial sexter pleaded guilty on May 19 to transmitting obscene material to a minor, and his sentencing was set for Sept. 8. In a letter Thursday, his lawyer asked Manhattan Federal Judge Denise Cote to reschedule sentencing to Oct. 6 so they have more time to review officials’ sentencing recommendations, and “fashion a sentencing recommendation that best addresses the need for continuing treatment.” Weiner’s long-suffering wife, Huma Abedin, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, filed for divorce the same

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I´ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

The Republican Party´s collective response to Donald Trump´s handling of the Charlottesville race riots turned uglier on Friday. Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor whom Trump has bashed relentlessly for more than two years, lashed out against him on Facebook for what he said was a hamfisted message during Tuesday´s press conference – and demanded a full-throated apology from the president.

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake.
