Why are leftists always so racist? Bob Beckel was fired from Fox once again, but not for insulting conservatives with vile accusations while screaming at them. He made a racist comment to. black employee.
He was the left-wing co-host of The Five until today.
“Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement.
Fox doesn’t want to end up like CNN with the worst racism lawsuit ever against a media outlet. Hundreds are suing CNN in a class action suit for discrimination against minorities.
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. He was also chief-of-staff for Jimmy Carter.
He was on CNN for a while.
He was fired in 2015 while recovering from back surgery and sometimes showing up on air sounding incoherent. It was said that he was on pain killers but he also has a history of substance abuse.
Bill Shine had fired him but Rupert Murdoch welcomed him back with open arms this year.
Fox News’ human-resources department was made aware of a complaint about what one person familiar with the situation characterized as a “racially insensitive remark” on Tuesday evening. Executives conducted an internal investigation, this person said, and decided to part ways with Beckel Friday morning.
No one is reporting yet what he said to whom. One report says he left because a black guy was working on his computer.
Fox fans are rejoicing on social media. Now they want Juan fired.
Beckel at his best:
