Fox News Fires Liberal Host Bob Beckel After He Goes Too Far While Talking With Black Employee


Fox News abruptly fires liberal commentator Bob Beckel after racial discrimination against a black IT employee.

Bob Beckel was fired from Fox News on Friday following an incident that is leaving him with a lawsuit for racial discrimination. A black IT employee was working at Beckel’s desk when some sort of disagreement occurred and he made a discriminatory remark to the man.

From IJR:

Attorneys handling a racial discrimination lawsuit are representing the IT employee and provided a little more context in a joint statement:

Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, lawyers handling a growing racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former Fox employees, said in a joint statement that Beckel told one of their clients, a black IT worker, that he was leaving the office while the employee serviced his computer because the employee is black. When the IT worker filed a complaint, Beckel attempted to intimidate him to withdraw it, Wigdor and Christensen said.

Fox News responded to the allegations in a statement provided to IJR:

“As Mr. Wigdor knows, Fox News made the decision to terminate Mr. Beckel after a prompt and thorough investigation. His client raised the complaint to Kevin Lord, EVP Human Resources, on Tuesday evening via email and within 7 minutes Mr. Lord responded and began the investigation. Today, Fox News delivered that message to Mr. Beckel and facilitated an apology from Mr. Beckel to the employee minutes after he was terminated. No one tried to persuade Mr. Wigdor’s client to withdraw his complaint.”

“Bob Beckel makes an insensitive remark to an African-American employee” is that not irony? Liberals calling conservatives racist and the Fox Liberal Du Jour makes an insensitive comment to someone of another race? Wow…

He was one Angry Democrat that  you could not reason with and have a normal conversation with, like many other Congressional wackos we have in there now. Goodbye, maybe you can get a job on The View now.
