Bob Beckel is liberal, FYI RT @thinkprogress: Fox News host just doesn't get it: "When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?"—

I wondered why old media doesn't care that Salazar and Beckel are waging a war on women. But what difference, at this point, does it make?—

Oh, the media did weigh in on Bob Beckel’s repugnant comments, which we reported last night. The serial misogynist actually asked when was the last time anyone heard of a rape on a campus? Campus rape is just something mythical to the cretinous Beckel.
He then horribly trivialized date rape, and then asked if a woman should shoot her “date.” If he was raping her. No big whoop, ladies. He’s your date!
Dear Bob Beckel: Once your date decides to rape you, I'm pretty sure it's no longer a date (maybe never was). Just sayin'. Love, The Diva—

Some media outlets did report on his outrageously foul statements, but there is something fishy about the way they did so. He’s got that old (D) immunity!
So, while they were forced to call him out for his repulsiveness, they still made sure to provide Democrats cover. Beckel is just a “Fox News host,” you see. As we reported earlier, BuzzFeed pulled that stunt and tried to cover it up. Twitter libs feed into the false narrative.
GOP training. FOX host. Gee, we wonder who is helping to push that shameful spin?
Nice try with the fake call-out, but too bad Politico also hid Beckel’s political affiliation.
It’s not just the sub-header; The word Democrat is not mentioned in the post itself, either. In addition, they say Beckel did acknowledge date rape occurs, but did not mention the trivialization of it, as if it doesn’t “count” as rape.
ThinkProgress pulled the same disgraceful thing, as did The Huffington Post.
Huffington Post’s article doesn’t even mention Democrat at all.
Disgusting. As always, the shameful lapdog media are burying bones for Democrats. Sane Twitter users aren’t having it, and are calling out the bias. They are also rightfully giving the morally bankrupt Bob Beckel the business.
If Beckel wants to troll a news network for the benefit of looking brave to Think Progress and MMFA..Let him do so without the paycheck—

I'm into kinky stuff Beckel but if a woman's date is holding her down and forcing himself inside her – he's a rapist not a date.—

Many are questioning why Beckel still has a job and platform from which to spew his bile.
Fox should do the right thing and replace rape apologist Bob Beckel with Kirsten Powers.—

Just listened to Bob Beckel's rape comments. Unbelievable. He should be fired immediately.—

Bob Beckel is a disgusting moron.—

I can't imagine any conservative getting away with 1/20th the things Bob Beckel says. Fox really needs to get rid of him.—

The media will help cover it up by hiding his (D). Because, projection.
Bob Beckel hates women in the very manner that he and other Dems often accuse GOPers of hating women. It's called projection.—

Bingo. We have said it before, and we’ll say it again. The real war on women is being waged by the Left and it always has been.
And the media is aiding them.
Update: Beckel faux-apologizes by stating a clarification, which henceforth should be known as a cretin clarification.
Glad to know Bob Beckel is calling "rape" "rape" "rape is rape" after yesterday's comments about date rape not really being rape—

To Beckel, a date is always just a date. Even if he is raping you.
