I don’t know whether to believe this: Variety reports that Fox News fired Bob Beckel again, this time for insulting a black employee.
Douglas Wigdor, an attorney who represents several current and former employees who have alleged racial discrimination at Fox News in a lawsuit, said he is representing the employee who complained about Beckel. In a statement, Wigdor alleged Beckel “stormed out of his office” when an African-American information-technology employee came to service his computer, “telling our client that he was leaving his office because he was black.” Wigdor alleged Fox News executives tried to get the employee to withdraw the complaint. “As with our other 22 clients, we intend on holding 21st Century Fox accountable for these actions and will be filing multiple other complaints in other matters next week,” Wigdor said.
Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment, By Brian Steinberg, May 19, 2017
Fox denies trying to get said employee to withdraw the complaint, but that aside, I have to wonder about this one. Unless Beckel was on one of his confessed drug- or alcohol-fueled benders, I have difficulty believing he said what is alleged.
Not that the Democrat loose cannon doesn’t misfire occasionally.
Anyway, they want me to believe that a top Democrat strategist told a black fellow trying to help him that he didn’t want a black fellow helping him.
Then again, maybe Beckel knows that Hollywood’s black IT geniuses are only make believe.
