I don’t think Bob Beckel will be welcome back to Fox News after this or any other network.
Everyone in America is usually afforded second chances, but when you mess that up, nobody will be crying about the repercussions. I guess Beckel is showing his deep Democrat roots. They still have not forgiven the Republicans for freeing the slaves.
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 – 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.
He departed in 2015 while recuperating from back surgery in a split that was seen as less an amicable. “We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn’t hold ‘The Five’ hostage to one man’s personal issues,” said Bill Shine, who was then the network’s executive vice president of programming, in a statement at the time. “He took tremendous advantage of our generosity, empathy and goodwill and we simply came to the end of the road with him.”
This guy was bad news the first time around. FOX fired him and then was dumb enough to rehire him. They say he was fired because of back surgery. WRONG. He was fired because he was a substance abuse: alcohol, prescription drugs and quite likely, illegal substances.
Hard to believe a compassionate champion of minorities and the poor would say something like this????
