    Beckel is still living his father's romanticism of a 60's civil rights type, but fails for many reasons! He can barely communicate w/o losing his temper and cursing on air..

    Yeah, he is like the Grinch on the "5", and can't express himself on the level that a member of a talk show panel should be able to. Besides, you've got to wonder about a guy who's still a liberal at his age? Remember the quote by Winston Churchill...

    No big loss, maybe CNN will take him back......he fits right in over there with their legion of rabid Trump haters. I couldn't believe Fox hired the blowhard back to begin with.

    I care nothing for the loud mouth!

    But that said I think there is a certain honesty in his blowhard liberal arrogance that is lacking in Juan trying to play it cool all the time. And I was taken aback just the other night when I watched "the Five" for the first time in quite a while because of the breaking Independent Council story.

    And it was Beckel who blurted out this was going to create more leaks, and no a word to contradict that remark because it was absolutely true!

    Versus Juan , who is completely stupid and so one-sided he's too dumb to realize he's mentally challenged .
    Juans kids are good right wingers though - mom did the proper job in bringing them up .

    Juan needs to stop crying about how he was back stabbed by PBS. That is how his kind behave all the time, and he says little when it happens to others who dare stray from the PC talking points.

    Bob Beckel never impressed me as anything but another 'me-too' liberal with nothing original to say. His side-of-the-mouth manner of speaking and his girth gave the distinct impression of a political hack bloviating on TV and failing to convince anyone.

    The racist incident, as reported, sounds a bit over the top as it describes Beckel running out of the room when a black tech enters to work on his computer, complaining about IT sending a black person. However, we know liberals are often closet racists who preen on their love for black folks by making sure as many as possible remain dependent on government handouts that the middle class pays for. Then calling white Trump voters 'racist'. So, it could have happened as described, although for Beckel to act that way was stupid. Oh, wait...he's an 'entitled' liberal. Never mind.

    Sadly, as the Murdoch boys disassemble Fox News and re-make it into yet another liberal propaganda outlet with few viewers, Beckel's exit won't be noticed. The man is 68, has a 10 million dollar net worth and should seriously consider retirement.

    There was a few years ago on Hannity's show, he dropped an F-bomb to a conservative female guest they had on when the camera and mic were still on. He told her she didn't know what the f she was talking about. They guy is a classless slob.

    Bob Beckel Fired from Fox News for Racist Comment

    Merged @ChemEngineer


    Couldn't happen to a nicer Leftist/racist.

    http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/fox-...ve-1202436839/


    Douglas Wigdor, an attorney who represents several current and former employees who have alleged racial discrimination at Fox News in a lawsuit, said he is representing the employee who complained about Beckel. In a statement, Wigdor alleged Beckel “stormed out of his office” when an African-American information-technology employee came to service his computer, “telling our client that he was leaving his office because he was black.” Wigdor alleged Fox News executives tried to get the employee to withdraw the complaint. “As with our other 22 clients, we intend on holding 21st Century Fox accountable for these actions and will be filing multiple other complaints in other matters next week,” Wigdor said.
