BREAKING! BOB BECKEL FIRED from Fox News for ‘insensitive remark’! [Updated]

MAN!! Here we go again. Bob Beckel, the second best part of “the Five,” has been canned. AGAIN…

“Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement.

DAMMIT BOB!!!

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.

This is such a foolish thing to do in a time when Fox News is under intense scrutiny over sexual harassment and racial discrimination charges. Dammit Bob!!!

Obviously I didn’t agree with him on nearly anything political, but he was very entertaining and a great counterbalance to the unceasing witless Trumpery of Jesse Watters and Kimberly Guilfoyle. He will be missed.

Also, Fox News, if you want a person of color to replace him and prove your commitment to diversity… ahem… I’ll send a resume over pronto…

UPDATE:

Here’s a little more detail.

Wigdor is representing a group of former and current Fox News employees suing the network.

UPDATE:

OH. Here’s a LOT MORE detail:

Jesse Watters has insensitive comments ON A SEGMENT THAT AIRED, but hey, he can stay as long as he has the Donald’s love-stink all over him still.
