Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment

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.”


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.

He probably fell off the wagon on the night Trump was elected. This sour old drunken Libtard's heading for the gutter!  Roger Ailes gave him  another chance, but he's not around anymore to pull his stupid ass out of the fire. He had the wisdom that comes form spending long hours on a barstool!

I always enjoyed Bob Beckel.  I certainly disagreed with his opinions but I found him funny-ha-ha and a wee bit funny-weird.  I'll miss him, but if he really did say what was referred to, he needed to go.

Well, Juan Williams is now the "go to" lib rather than Stutterin' Bob now.

I count it a small blessing that I have no idea who this is.

They already lost Eric Bolling. Without Bob Beckel, they may as well cancel the show.

Unless, that is, they come up with a new "five."

I think Greg Gutfeld and Dana Perino are the show's two best hosts. Keep them.

Keep Juan Williams as the resident liberal. It's too bad Kirsten Powers went to CNN. She would have been really good here.

I would reassign Kimberly Guifoyle. Give her a weekend show.

Get rid of Jesse Watters.

Add the big black guy who usually appears on Fox's business network. Bring back Andrea Tantaros.

So the new "Five" would be Perino, Gutfeld, Williams, Tantaros and the big black guy who usually appears on Fox's business network. Occasional subs could be Kennedy, John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL),  Geraldo Rivera, and the recent commentator with the long brown hair. I would also ask Neil Cavuto to sit in on occasion.

I know the guy but can't think of his name either.  Maddow at 9 is actually beating them, something that never happened in that time slot.


Just thought of it, Charles Payne.

Andrea sued Fox for sexual harassment ...

I think the show needs to go back to their old time slot or just go away... KG was openly lobbying for Sean Spicers job, so I don't think she wants to be there anymore, I don't like Juan as he is a whiner and Jesse is a douche.
