Coming back from relapse so fast, is  strange. The media industry ought to think twice about the assumption that alcoholic-addicts "recover" that fast.

Kind of funny in a way. The big racist at Fox turns out to be the token Democrat.

More to it than just "drying out", there is a whole mindset to get over, and "dry drunks" don't until they walk away from it mentally, too.

I am more interested in WHAT REMARK he made that caused his firing.

According to the article, Beckel wouldn't stay in his office because the man working on his computer was black??? Sorry, but that's simply not believable. Something here doesn't make sense. This reads like Bull Exrceta to me.

I have little doubt there is more to the story. Still, he should have known better than to make any remark that could be painted as "racis", unless he didn't.

OK, if there's more to this story, why not tell us EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID? Why cloak the entire article in "He said something racially insensitive?". Are they afraid we'd all melt at the remark?

Likely whatever it is was blown out of proportion and/or taken out of context, but with a lawsuit likely pending, they'll keep their cards close to their vests.
Which means whatever he said, it was either stupid or can be painted that way without much effort. Some things just don't get tossed into the arena with all the howling for blood out there, and Fox is shifting left anyway, so they don't want to mess up their market.

They're stuck between being called racially insensitive and sacking a liberal.

Agreed.  Beckel is many things, but would not have said that.  Sounds like another employee taking FOXNEWS to the bank as it says further down they are adding him and several others to the long list of complaints against FOXNEWS.  It seems that the Trump Admin isn't the only folks under siege.

Agree .. it sounds like we're either missing something, or it didn't happen.

These days, every remark, every look, every gesture is racist.  Just because I'm white,  I have to be racist.

Have y'all ever listened to Beckel?  He'll say anything. Did he say this?  We don't even know what "this" is.

Beckel has been making insensitive remarks his entire life.  This is no different and just an old-fashioned lynching.

They should fire almost all newsmen and commentators as I am sensitive to what they say.

FOX had to make him apologize because the guy's lawyer is suing FOX.  FOX is trying to stay ahead of the game.
