This should spell the end of Bob Beckel’s television career. I’m all about 2nd chances, but it’s time to move on. Yet another racist liberal fired as Bob Beckel has been let go for racist comments to he mad to a black employee at Fox News. Maybe Beckel has 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.”
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.”
Bob Beckel was lucky to get a 2nd chance with Fox News. They had already fired him once and for some reason they decided to re-hire him. Fox lied about why he was fired the first time. Fox said he was fired because of back surgery. It turns out he was fired because he was addicted to alcohol, prescription drugs and illegal substances.
Why would I guy with so much compassion for minorities and poor say such a horrible thing to a black co-worker?
