SHAKEUP: Fox News Axes Host, But This Firing Might Make You Happy

Fox News axed another employee, but this time some folks might rejoice. Variety reports that they fired Bob Beckel, the liberal co-host of the show "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 Beckelhas 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 aired in the late afternoon. Indeed, he was one of the program’s original co-hosts.

No one is sure exactly what was said, but Bob Beckel's absurdly liberal viewpoint won't be missed by many viewers.
