    Fox News Channel is parting ways – again – with Bob Beckel, the co-host of its primetime program, “The Five.” “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement. The dismissal opens – or perhaps closes – another chapter in an off-and-on relationship Beckel has had with the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet over the years. Beckel, a longtime political consultant as well as a former campaign manager for Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale, joined Fox News in 2000, and had a years-long tenure on “The Five” when it...
  • ‘I Think She Is an Idiot’: Fox’s Beckel Clashes With Co-Hosts Over ‘Irrelevant’ Ann Coulter

    04/26/2017 7:52:31 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 60 replies
    Days after the University of California – Berkeley first announced that they were canceling a speech by conservative provocateur Ann Coulter, along with Coulter rejecting their offer of a new date and planning to show up as originally scheduled, the issue is still a big topic on cable news. On this evening’s broadcast of Fox News’ The Five, the four conservative co-hosts ended up taking turns tearing into the college, students, liberals, and the Democratic Party for blocking Coulter’s free speech. Greg Gutfeld, for example, decried it as “sharia law for snowflakes.” Eventually, the one panelist who is supposed to...

    Fox News announced Tuesday it has hired Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel to serve as an on-air contributor. Emanuel has two famous brothers: Rahm Emanuel served as former President Barack Obama's chief of staff from 2009-2010 and has been the mayor of Chicago since 2011, while Ari Emanuel is a Hollywood talent agent. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, according to a press release, will appear on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network to discuss healthcare and policy. Emanuel worked in the Obama administration from 2009-2011 as a special advisor on health policy to the director of the Office of Management and...

    No one is rooting for the wall between the United States and Mexico to not be built harder than Fox News’ resident liberal Bob Beckel. Beckel is against the idea of the wall in general, but now Kimberly Guilfoyle, his co-host on “The Five” gave him another, better, reason to oppose it. During a segment on the projected cost of the project, Beckel highlighted a new study that said it might cost $21.6 billion and he contended the wall won’t be built. “I have to break this to you, Bob,” Guilfoyle said, “the wall is getting built.” “The wall is...

    Fox News has re-signed Bob Beckel to be a co-host of The Five. Juan Williams will remain a Fox News contributor across all programs and continue appear on the program. Beckel parted ways with Fox News in the middle of 2015, with the network at that time stating that they could no longer be held “hostage to one man’s personal issues.” This followed Beckel spending several months recovering from surgery and being in rehab for an addiction to painkillers. In today’s announcement, Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch said “Bob was missed by many fans of The Five and we’re...

    There is no simple answer about what happened last Tuesday. There are thousands of pieces of information needed by those of us who analyze politics before we can be more certain of the "why." I have never analyzed a presidential election as much as I did the Trump-Clinton race of 2016. Also, I have never been so wrong. I'm not an outlier. Most, if not all, of the analysts from both parties and those nonaligned analysts I admire also got it wrong. So where did we go wrong? One or two trends are beginning to emerge. The first hints came...

    Amid the media-hyped furor over Donald Trump's 2nd Amendment comments and Wikileaks' suggestions about the untimely death of DNC-staffer Seth Rich, we thought it perhaps of note that Democratic strategist, and CNN host, has publicly called for the "illegal assassination of that son-of-a-bitch" Julian Assange... Met Bob Beckel - Democratic strategist, CNN host (former Fox host), and clear "treasonous, traitor" Assange-hater... This strikes us as very dangerous talk... We wonder if he is being questioned or investigated for such a public and unquestionable demand for someone to be murdered? Forget due process... "just kill the son of a bitch."

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton will win the general election this fall and will "crush" Donald Trump, says CNN political correspondent Bob Beckel, even if she has to do it from jail. "Remind me I said this, she will crush him," Beckel told CNN's Don Lemon on the "CNN Tonight" show Wednesday. Beckel added, "I mean, she can crush him from jail." And as for GOP front-runner Donald Trump, should he secure the nomination in Cleveland this summer? "In the end, the best-selling Halloween mask this October will be Donald Trump's face," Beckel said. "You go on to a college campus...

[Snip] “We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn’t hold The Five hostage to one man’s personal issues. He took tremendous advantage of our generosity, empathy and goodwill and we simply came to the end of the road with him.

    Bob Beckel is no longer a Fox News employee, a network spokesperson confirmed to Mediaite on Thursday afternoon. Best-known as the salty liberal panelist on Fox’s hit midday talk show The Five, Beckel has been off-the-air since February 16. His absence was surrounded by mystery for several months until the network confirmed that he had undergone back surgery and, later, that he had also sought rehabilitation therapy for addiction to prescription pain medication. ... While often representing the lone “liberal” voice at the desk, Beckel has stirred up his fair share of controversy: When he called for an end to...

    Over the past several months, Mediaite has produced a handful of posts asking the question: Where is Fox’s The Five co-host Bob Beckel? ... In our first report, we noted that Fox told us Beckel was out receiving and recovering from back surgery. However, our own sources at the network indicated there was more to the story, including possible addiction (as cable watchers know well, Beckel is open about his drug history). And now Fox confirms that there is, indeed, an addiction therapy element to the story after all.

    Via NRO, nothing says “slow news Friday” like a lazy post devoted to half-assed speculation. On the one hand, he’s an old Democrat with friends in the Democratic establishment. He might conceivably have heard something from a friend who’s heard something from someone who’s in a position to know. On the other hand, I haven’t seen a single other liberal in media anywhere say anything about an October surprise. What’s most likely? That Bob Beckel, Fox News liberal, is somehow more tapped in to the White House than MSNBC? That lots of other lefties in media know what he’s talking...

    Full Title: ‘That’s treasonous, what you just said!’ What Kimberly Guilfoyle said to make Bob Beckel snap// President Obama’s commencement address to the graduating cadets at West Point on Monday ignited heated arguments not only across the country, but particularly between Bob Beckel and his four sidekicks on Fox News’ ‘The Five.’ At one point, the stalwart Democrat accused Kimberly Guilfoyle of treasonous speech and her colleagues of maltreatment of the Chief Executive. The pressure began to build when host Eric Bolling described Obama’s attempt to redefine his foreign policy as “bizarre, telling men and women who have offered their...

    A prominent liberal columnist’s admission that the “death panels” Sarah Palin warned about really are and always have been a part of Obamacare caused a blowup Tuesday on Fox’s “The Five,” when host Eric Bolling said “liberal royalty” owes Palin an apology. Bolling was referring to a statement by Time magazine columnist and passionate Obama fan Mark Halperin, who told Newsmax TV on Monday that health-care rationing was an inseparable part of Obamacare’s takeover of the U.S. health system. Halperin himself didn’t use the term “death panels,” but the point was clear enough from the clip. It wasn’t clear enough...

And I got a call from somebody at the White House who absolutely bludgeoned me over it…“
