Bob Beckel Screams F**k Live On Hannity, Refuses To Believe He Was On Air

Bob Beckel didn’t realize when the commercial break ended during tonight’s final segment of Hannity, caught in a heated off-camera argument with fellow panelist Jennifer Stefano. Off-air debates, we learned, are granted a much more colorful range of vocabulary than on-air debates, and as the cameras started rolling, the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the f*** you’re talking about.”

In a blooper that is as hilarious as it increasingly becomes painful, it slowly dawns on Beckel what actually happened, as Hannity insists he apologize and Beckel, after saying he won’t several times, finally realizes the cameras are actually rolling. When he finally figured it out, he told Hannity to “run your show better,” then covered his head in shame and refused to speak, other than to say “I’m going to be fired.”

Hannity explained the situation– the two were in a heated debate while he and Tea Party activist Neal Boortz played catch with the famed Hannity show football. Beckel didn’t look over at the producer giving a five-second warning and inadvertently went off on-screen. When he finally realized what happened, Beckel was beyond contrite, instead saying he was going to get fired and refusing to speak for the rest of the segment. Both Stefano and Boortz tried to comfort him– Stefano trying to continue the policy debate but noting that she took exception with the “personal” nature of debate sometimes, Boortz adding, “if they try to fire you, we’ll defend you.”

The perils of live TV: you can say something so inappropriate and refuse to believe you did for so long, that the unbelievable moment in which you realize what happened makes everyone come out looking more endearing.

Note: A clip of the incident is imbedded in the article.

Until this kerfuffle, I had never heard of Bob Beckel. But he certainly is one handsome hunka man, no question. From his career summary on Wikipedia:

Managed Walter Mondail’s presidential campaign

Graduated from Wagner College

Talk about resume stains. Is it really fair for Foxnews to keep this clown around to embarass liberals even more?

Beckel has seems especially deranged recently. He really was unhinged on Hannity a few nights ago.

He and his kind, the Combs types, are precisely why I turned off Hannity years ago. If they need Beckel, they don’t need me.

FoxNews is running their network the way Romney would run the government if elected. Bring in the liberals and let them set the tone and the agenda. Bush did not keep his promise to govern as a conservative; that would tell us what’s to come. I don’t watch Fox hardly at all since the FL primary. ( I recall when he got busted-she looks like she could be his daughter-sicko and they praise him on Hannity and the 5) Fox lowered the standard allowing him on. They should hear from the viewers about this latest incident. Morals, values are being written away.

Fox won’t fire this fat A$$ they need him for the nutty side comments that he makes for the Demorats.

Even if the mike IS off, is that the way you need to present your argument?

He’s a hack who should no longer be allowed on Fox.

Flaming libs are never able to respond to issues with any sort of logic, so screaming, name calling, lying and profanity are their only retort.

“Refuses To Believe He Was On Air”

The perfect example of the liberal mind; “Facts? We don’t need no stinking facts!”

I don't recall ever having heard of Wagner College. If I did, it obviously didn't make an impression, one way or another.
Tuition, room and board for full-time undergraduate students (9 units) during the 2010-2011 academic year is $44,160.

Neal Boortz was on Hannity's panel last night with Beckel and Stefano, and just described the incident on his radio show a few minutes ago.

Boortz said that Stefano was being a real jerk toward Beckel the entire show - especially during the commercial breaks when Hannity and Boortz were relaxing and tossing a football - and that Beckel finally blew his stack when she launched into another random rant at Beckel during a break. Boortz said that none of the three panelists realized that they were back "live" when Beckel snapped back at her. Fair's fair, and that is Neal's account.

ya mean commies like beckel need to be warned they are about to be soon on air so they dont say fluke you over and over. The baby beckel should be fired now, what does he add? Check the FACTS on what stefano “doesnt know what the fluke she’s talking about” and find out who the fluke is right.

the fact that hannity said things get heated during break is more reason hannity should have a better warning system for guests. That said, there is no reason whatsoever that a commie beckel type should say what he said off air or on air. Fire the commie now.
