"Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee," a network spokesperson said in a short statement.It wasn't immediately clear who would replace Beckel on "The Five" and Fox News did not provide details on the incident that led to his firing. Beckel was not immediately available for comment.
I wonder what the comment was. But what I don't understand is that it's common knowledge that Bob is a loose cannon and says things that probably shouldn't be said and certainly shouldn't be said on a news channel. But yet, Fox kept him on after dropping the F'bomb in 2012 on air and CNN hired him in 2015 or 2016 then Fox hired him back in Jan 2017.
I kinda liked having Bob on there. He's like the left's version of Trump... You know, unfiltered and and maybe a little erratic. It made for an interesting show.
