    Fox News fires ‘The Five’ host Bob Beckel over racist remark to African-American

    Fox News fired political pundit Bob Beckel over an allegedly racist comment he made to an African-American colleague off the air.

    Beckel’s remark was described as being “racially insensitive” to the network’s human resources team, Variety reported.

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

    An attorney for the Wigdor firm that’s representing the employee claimed in a statement that Beckel “stormed out” of his office after the employee, who works for the IT department, arrived to service his computer. Beckel allegedly told the employee that he was leaving because “he is black,” according to attorney Douglas H. Wigdor.

    1. I remember when Beckel was a fake liberal on CNN.

    2. Dry drunk Beckel – should have been fired on the spot when he advocated

    the assassination of Julien Assange.

    So a Great News Day for Assange, Manning, Snowden, and all the other Truthsayers.

    5. He should have made sure there was a mic on.

    Then they would have given him a slot in prime time.
