Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment (260 hits)

Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment
By Brian Steinberg - Variety

Fox News Channel is parting ways – again – with Bob Beckel, the co-host of its primetime program, “The Five.”

“Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement.

The dismissal opens — or perhaps closes 0- another chapter in an off-and-on relationship Beckel has had with the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet over the years.

Beckel, a longtime political consultant as well as a former campaign manager for Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale, joined Fox News in 2000, and had a years-long tenure on “The Five” when it aired in the late afternoon. Indeed, he was one of the program’s original co-hosts.

I don't believe this story. Beckel is a hard core Democrat.

Hay Steven, what is a Democrat? Don't you have spell check over there? Or are you stooping to a lower level by name calling like many Republicons?

I stand corrected. Beckel Was the only one out of the five who stood up for the people.

Beckel and Juan Williams both are democrats. They both took turns on the show. Now it's all Juan. My point is I don't believe Beckel ever would have done or said anything racist.

I'm sure it wasn't nothing as of the scale of Billy which she was very reluctant to fire but they are real jumpy over at Fox news now in their ratings are going down, so that may have played a part in the firing is well.

Now another school of thought is, that they don't want any of the FOX News audience to do any independent thinking on there own which would interfere in the republican party conservative agenda.

They report and you decide.
