Mission accomplished? As Twitchy reported, Buzzfeed reported on Bob Beckel’s outrageous comments on campus rape by referring to him only as a “Fox News host,” ignoring the fact that Beckel is the Democrat representative on “The Five,” and only later sneaking the “liberal” label into its coverage. Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski argued that no one knows who Beckel is, that’s all — it certainly wasn’t an attempt to tar Fox News as rape deniers.

And yet…

That’s not a bad idea, but if you’re sincere in your effort to educate, it would be more effective to email the one host on “The Five” who hadn’t heard of rape happening on campus. His name is Bob Beckel, and he’s a Democrat, by the way.

    This was part of some plan. They as in the left knew the resident liberal at Fox would say something dumb and this will finally give them proof that all Fox commentator of dumb. None of the conservative commentator say anything that would be as dumb.

    To the left there are no liberal on Fox they are all neo-cons even Bob, He is not liberal enough or he would not work for Fox he is a traitor to the liberals cause but working there.

        Token?You mean because he is on fox,or that he parrots exactly what the DNC talking points are on a daily basis?Good thing he isn’t black…then you would call him a Uncle Tom…oh wait,that only applies to any minorities that think for themselves and leave the democratic plantation.

        That’s not what cost them the election. And as @facebook-15923422:disqus said, none of us were defending them. Ever. The people who threw their (fake) outrage out on those two never intended to vote for anyone in the GOP anyway. In the meantime, the left wants women to urinate or vomit to fend off rapists, or use whistles and “safe zones”. Eventually, even you are going to have to wake up to the fake “war on women” trumped up by the left who actually are waging a war on women.

    SOP in liberal media circles.

    An unmistakeable air of anachronism surrounds the old guard media. We know all the tricks in their playbook and they are the metaphorical buggy whip manufacturers in an automotive age.

      Actually, it’s more like “Republican Congressman John Doe [Insert Scandalous/Heinous Act Here], According To Mounting Allegations”. Gotta get that image of the act actually being a proven fact out there, before adding the qualifier.

      Conversely, you tend to see “Opponents Continue To Allege [Insert Scandalous/Heinous Act Here] By Congressman John Doe”, making the allegations here seem secondary to the fact that it’s all just political chaff. Really. Nothing to see here, citizen.

      Looks like we’ve had an attack by one “down-vote” troll. Seriously, what is the point of going all the way through a comment thread and down-voting almost every single one. You’re not highlighting anything you especially disagree with. It’s like running into a meeting, shouting, “You’re all assholes!” and running out again.

      • Rich Davie

        The attack of the “one down-vote” troll is just to remind the sane individuals that a mentally deficient cretin has passed through and couldn’t be bothered to actually read any of the posts… it’s the trademark stench of a mouth-breathing liberal.

  • waltzingmtilda

    I know this is going to make me sound like I’m in the third grade, but this is just so unfair. It really is.

    Why does Fox allow this clown airtime? Honestly, I’m getting to the point where I don’t trust them either. If they didn’t see the “Fox host with no political affiliation mentioned” angle coming down the pike, then they are beyond naive. If they did and didn’t care because there’s no such thing as bad publicity, well, that’s just as bad.

    • 1SkepticalChick

      You are verging on sipping the koolaide. Take a step back, put the glass down, and look at this again. Everytime he opens his mouth and blurts something stupid he is laying the Dem/Lib stupidity right out where it can be seen. No softball, no covers, no cushion, no selective editing, no flattering lighting, no mas pantelones. Complete naked exposure for the lib attitudes on live TV. Fox just leaves him out there dangling. They always ask him to clarify, or explain his position and he always makes it worse. And Fox just sits back and watches lib heads explode because he makes the LEFT look so bad. It’s like watching the schoolyard bully beat himself up.

      • waltzingmtilda

        For a skeptical chick, you sure have an optimistic view of the
        effectiveness of the tactics you just laid out. Bob Beckel makes the
        left look bad? To who?

        BTW

        – curious as to why my opinion counts as borderline kool aid drinking? Is it because I’m not in lockstep with Fox on this? Because that seems kind of like the opposite of kool aid drinking. Maybe you meant my approach was a bit tin foily…now that, I will totally cop to, ’cause the older I get the more I seem to invest in the old Reynolds Wrap. 😉

        • 1SkepticalChick

          He makes the Libs look bad to everybody including themselves, which is especially entertaining since he sounds exactly like they do. They get to hear how stupid they sound. And Bob doesn’t try to soften it he just blurts out crap and is serious about it. Conservatives already know how bad the left is, so to watch Beckel open his mouth and anticipating all those exploding Liberal heads trying to figure out a way to defend his so indefensible remarks is just fun. Koolaide remark, not meant to be mean, just saying maybe look a little differently at Foxs motive in keeping him out there. It’s like he steps out and his pants fall down but he just keeps talking. And he represents the left! So it’s like every liberal I run into I picture their pants around their ankles and they just ramble on, oblivious to how rediculous they sound. Watch the other people at the table with him, they just watch him hang himself, blithering away. They aren’t giving him a platform to do anything except expose the Left for the foolishness they spout. He’s sure not doing the liberals any favors. Yes, he says terrible things, which works against the left.

  • LastMomStanding

    • 1SkepticalChick

      Nope, leave him right there. He’s a prime example of the Liberal limp mindset contrasted against logical, conservativism of his co-hosts. Let him shine and continue to display liberal twisted reasoning for the world to see. The Dems need that kind of exposure.

        I agree. Let the windbag keep representing who the real left is. As disgusting as he is, it’s the REAL him. Leave him right there.

    If Fox Fires Beckel- The MSM will scream Fox hates liberal democrats. Not fair and balanced

    • TonyMontana3

      Fox News is MSM.

  • Moonbeam

    Please let’s not forget TODD AKIN – yes, throw stones all you want. Mr Legitimate Rape.

    He said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

    And then we have Richard Mourdock

    He replied: “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that’s something God intended to happen.”

    These remarks helped cost the GOP the election.

    I’m the first one to condemn him (and I’m a liberal), but Beckel is very much a TOKEN liberal who appears on Fox. Very much like Juan Williams and company. I think his time on Fox has now influence him so much that he has been TAINTED. That’s what happens when you appear on Fox too long. You begin thinking like the Aikins in the world. So I REJECT Beckel as a liberal. He’s gone over to the Dark Side.

    • John (it true me am)

      So let me get this straight. FOX is unbalanced because any liberal they hire is no longer liberal? This is that old gem again, FOX can have just as many non-white hosts and commentators, just as many liberals, just as much coverage of liberal-centric stories as anyone else but it’s still not enough. It’s never going to be enough, is it? Because you and yours decided FOX is the enemy, FOX is the scapegoat, how dare they give equal(that’s right, not more, EQUAL) airtime to Republicans and not bow at the altar of Obama!

      I’d also be willing to bet you don’t watch FOX at all to know what people like Williams and Beckle are actually saying, so how you can say that they don’t line up with liberal views?

    • Matthew Koch

      We’re throwing stones?

      What about the throngs of liberals who bitch about a war on women and condemn all conservatives on the basis of a few individual remarks? They refuse to be just as outraged when someone who shares their ideas goes down the same path. When a righty makes those remarks most other conservatives condemn him.

      When a liberal like Salazar or Beckel makes very similar remaks the same war on women crowd either ain’t aware of it or they don’t care! Most of them won’t get very upset!

      If feminists actually cared about treatment of women instead of rolling over for men who share heir ideas then perhaps we wouldn’t be playing this up as much.

      Also I wouldn’t have to spend my time trying to prove to ignorant dumb basses that not all conservatives think like Todd akin. W

      • Moonbeam

        The same goes for all liberals. We don’t all think like him. Please be consistant.

      • George_Gooney

        Rush is a prominent conservative pundit — arguably the biggest, literally and figuratively. Murdock is one of the most powerful men in television. Akin influences legislation, and is a govt. representative. This isnt even including the fact that most conservatives sprinted to the defense of Rush, when he made those disgusting remarks about Sandra Fluke. Rush and Murdoch are representatives of conservative America. Beckel is a lowly Fox contributer, whom nobody on the left identifies with, likes, nor is defending in this particular case. Do you understand the difference? Of course not…

        • J. Cox

          When the 1st sentence of your argument is making fun of someone for their weight,the rest of your drivel is just that.

        • Matthew Koch

          I understand it perfectly. When akin and Murdock made their remarks they got hammered relentlessly by most of us.

          When Rush made his remarks most righties criticized it. The reason the rest of us didn’t is because he was probably right based on her life story.

          If you’d prefer someone famous what about Ted Kennedy. Does a powerful and popular man like him get attacked by most liberals. No.

          Does a sexual predator like President Clinton get attacked by most liberals?

          Don’t make me laugh.

          • George_Gooney

            Clinton didnt get criticized? What planet are you from….see thats what Im talking about. You guys create your own reality. The Clinton fiasco was one of the biggest stories in history…people just felt like he shouldnt have been impeached over consensual acts. LOL @ predator.

            And there you go….you just told on yourself concerning the right’s war on women. Most righties thought it appropriate to call a woman a “rut” and a “constitute”, because she was advocating insurance covering b.c control. How utterly childish and misogynistic. He brain surgeon, you dont have to have sex everyday to need to use b.c, and it also has health benefits for the female gender…but lets not let any of that get in the way of calling her disgusting and vile names. Fluke wasnt even bashing anyone, or attacking anything — she was just an advocate.

          • Matthew Koch

            I wasn’t talking about affairs (nice reading comprehension) I was talking about his assaults. Do you recall the names Juanita Broderick or Kathleen Willey? Do they mean anything to you?

            Of course not, talk about an alternate reality.

            Flukes really an advocate trying to violate the religious freedom of the Catholic Church. The stories coming out of Georgetown would support my assertion. She supports tyranny.

            Why doesn’t she pay for it herself? It ain’t that expensive. Most people probably spend more on I tunes each month!

          • George_Gooney

            what the hell do you mean, “freedom”? People are free to take b.c or not. Nobody is forced. The fact of the matter is that b.c provides health benefits outside of contraception, and one does not need to engage in consistent sexual activity in order to have a need for b.c…Also, insurance is PAID for by the customer, so covering it under an insurance policy does not make it “free”. Besides, we have separation of church and state for a reason. This is a free society.

            LOL, talk about “tyranny”…the woman is simply an advocate for a perfectly legitimate argument that benefits women’s lives physically and mentally (whether you agree or not), and for that she is viciously attacked by shameless bullies and called horrible names by mainstream pundits, which are cheered by his ravenous base. And you call yourself a tolerant, moral, religious minded person? Please. You dont know the first thing about morality.

        • GTFOBigGovt

          Soooo Limbaugh calling Fluke a slut for wanting me to pay for her birth control…equals Beckel denying rapes happen on college campuses.

    Beckel is the most effective liberal out there. He says stupid stuff and fox gets blamed.

    • George_Gooney

      Fox News is his employer. Fox News has been giving him a platform for years — and its not as if this is Beckel’s first time putting his foot in his mouth…the guy is a complete idiot. Why shouldnt Fox news sit front and center on this story? Oh, because Beckel identifies as democrat? Hes not a mover and shaker power broker on the left, like a Rush or Hannity. Hell, nobody on the left even likes him — thats why he’s on fox. Beckel doesnt affect or influence public policy — hes a token hack on a right leaning network. Fox to be exact. Fox makes an ass out of itself once again.

        • George_Gooney

          Let me try this again. He is under fox’s employ. Fox pays him a salary to represent their company. Bob’s hackneyed performances represent himself and the network that keeps him gainfully employed.

          • J. Cox

            They do not pay him to represent Fox…He is a news commentator,they pay him to comment and give a opposing point of view.They don’t write him a script…the DNC does that.

          • George_Gooney

            when Beckel is introduced, he is introduced as a “FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTER”….Dont worry, if you ever get a decent job, you’ll understand that your actions are a reflection of the company.

          • J. Cox

            So now the random trolltard knows if I have a decent job…nice try,try harder…of course…your argument still lacks anything better than setting up a strawman defense for his actions.You are going to condemn him right?Thought you wouldn’t…but hey..it’s FOX’s fault for hiring him right.

          • George_Gooney

            Jesus christ, this doesnt make any sense. The conversation is Beckel and Fox you genius.

          • J. Cox

            No…apparently you libs want to make this to be about Akin…and others who said stuff before,and that that automaticly makes FOX guilty….because Beckel isn’t responsible for his words,and libs try again to shift the blame from the “token”.Your argument seems to be as vacuous as always,but please…keep defending him.It truly shows how in lock-step you all are.

Because Beckel works for Fox, in their infantile minds, ALL Fox employees are responsible for HIS idiocy. Is that what the whiny libs are going to run with this week?

      Fox News hired him so yes we should blame the network too.

      • FranklinWasRight

        So, you blame MSNBC for everything their token conservatives say when they are on a panel? Thought not. Republicans get blamed either way it would seem.

      • Michael Rice

        Yoi hired Obama, so the next time he kills a child with a drone strike, turn yourself in.

    SQUIRREL!

    Bob Beckel is a moron in his own right, but the timing is too perfect. MUST AVERT NEWS FROM REP SALAZAR!!!

  • Michael Harry

    An employer’s reputation does get tainted by employee actions. Hire a Beckel and you accept the fallout. It’s obvious some dolts are gratuitously smearing Fox with this, but their behavior is petty, tired, and predictable. It’s not worth feigning outrage.

  • jgok

    So, no outrage over the comments by the democrat in Colorado, but outrage over a tv pundit on fox news?

    • Steve_J

      Beckel, even though a liberal democrat, being on Fox reflects poorly on FNC, at least in the MSM’s mind.

      • 1SkepticalChick

        And we care what they think how? He makes the MSM look bad because he sounds just like them. He’s so shiny for the Left’s cause(s) and attracts so much attention everyone around him needs some cheap sunglasses.

        • Steve_J

          Only an explanation why the outrage over what Beckel said and not what Salazar said.

          • 1SkepticalChick

            Gotcha, good catch!

  • $18449752

    Beckel is an ubber-liberal – he is talking liberal speak not conservative. This isn’t about Fox, it’s another liberal wanting gun control.

  • Matt

    This is why we lose. There is no reason for Fox to give any time to liberals- there just isn’t. They add nothing to the discussion besides noise and distraction and then in situations like this, the press picks up on “Fox News Host” and completely leaves out “Flaming $#$#ing liberal”. Fire Beckel, Juan Williams, etc. We don’t need allegedly “fair and balanced coverage”. We need the truth, without the distractions and red herrings that are caused by the idiot liberals. I mean seriously, Fox, why not just shoot yourself in the foot.

    • 1SkepticalChick

      Because they are too busy giving Juan and Bob a venue to shoot themselves and every liberal out there in the foot. This is not why we lose, it’s what exposes the left for what it is. All Fox does is allow them to expose themselves (sorry for the visual) on live TV. Fox does not edit their statements, or videos, they don’t defend them. In fact they make them defend themselves. Fox just lets them dangle out there after they’ve blurted something so incredibly stupid. Smart as a fox, huh?

      • Matt

        I get your point but i respectfully disagree. When you put the truth out there, then give a soapbox to a lying liberal crapweasel, you undermine the truth by presenting an opposing view that is almost always demonstrately false. You also allow the other news outlets to legitimize the lies by pointing to the the fact that Fox has a commentator on that’s saying XYZ, which is exactly the same thing the MSM is saying and the only people not saying it are the Fox “conservative schills.” Fox is legitimizing Williams and Beckel by presenting their opinions as viable, when those opinions are not only false but outrageously false.

        • 1SkepticalChick

          Two things in your statement reinforce my point. “demonstrably false”, and “outrageously false”. Both are true. Truth is not undermined but does become blindingly and obvious. You leave out the word “liberal” when referring to the commentator, and then use the words “conservative shills”. Fox not legitimizing anyone, simply using them for chum.

  • http://twitter.com/standsomemore StandSomeMore

    Hey, Beckel, maybe you and Juan Williams should start a club: Liberals thrown under the Liberal bus. Tire track across your back, and you still won’t abandon those goons? How does that definition of insanity go?

  • lillymckim

    So Yahoo “News” ? (btw the news part you might want to change that), Daily Mail Online, Huffington Post, where in your inflammatory misleading headlines and I’m sure all done in error (eye roll) does it say Bob Beckel who works for Fox is a DEMOCRAT?

  • TonyMontana3

    He IS a Fox News host. Of course FN should be blamed as well.

    • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

      What do you mean ‘as well?’ As well as who else?

    • GTFOBigGovt

      OH, so when Obama’s minions on Fox push their Democrat narrative, they’re going to write: “Fox News says [Obama succeeds at….] !” Or whatever????

      See what I did there? Of course you do. You weren’t being serious to begin with.

  • milletime810

    If fox js dumb enough to keep someone like beckel on their payroll they are getting what they deserve. The worst part is all the co-hosts on the five go on about how much they like beckel personally, every time he says something that is utterly reprehensible. It must stop, guttfeld is really the only reason the show is worth watching.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1538376219 Stacey Holmdahl

    Fox news should not employ a babbling idiot like Beckel unless they want to accept the repercussions of being associated with him when he shoots his mouth off like this. He’s done it several times, if they haven’t learned, then I don’t feel too sorry for them. I won’t even listen to this show on the radio because this guy annoys me so badly.

  • copperpeony

    Beckel should be fired. Period.

  • Steve_J

    Are they talking about the Old, Liberal, Democrat, Walter Mondale campaign manager, White Guy?

  • http://twitter.com/R_U_Srs Seriously?

    Makes me think Beckel did it on purpose, actually.

  • David Harrison

    Andrea Tantaros is a Grecian Goddess.

  • Amy

    If Fox doesn’t like being called out for Beckel’s insanity, then maybe they should terminate his contract.

  • ArtieThe1

    God put liberals on this earth to give the rest of us sane people something to laugh at.

  • MiBones

    Leave Bob alone. He explains, to all, that his life style has inhibited his thought processes. I know many people, with his lifestyle, that this would be true. If you listen to his comments, all he knows is sex and maybe politics. The rest of his life is a fog.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      While it’s true that brain damage is a definite consequence of alcoholism why should ANYBODY be “left alone” when our country is on the chopping block? Let him go sit home on “disability” like the rest of Obama’s demographic then.

      AND the topic is media liars more than Beckel.

      • MiBones

        Well give him congrats for not living off the government dole. The problem I have with most of the comments is it’s personal and not on his position. He never said there were no rapes on campus. His thinking was that it is not as prevalent as it is. At least he asks questions on the things he does not understand. Fight the Legislature. They are the problem.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Bob “Buffon” Beckel strikes again. When will FOX finally pull the plug and drop this dumbass Obamabot? Why did Eric bother saving this turd’s life? Total waste of time.

    • ratizbad

      Bob the idiot is on fox to show what liberals think, I like watching this fool,(Or idiot),If all would watch, You would know what they are .Almost funny,but the left and the president and the media are showing there real colors,Be black or white? Guess or call out all!!

    • Roto

      Exactly… Fox should publicly fire Beckel & get another Moonbat. When that one #fails, get another one, and another, and another, showing the idiocy of the Left.

    FOX only keep Beckel around to show the country the stupidity of the marxist, jackass party.

    So people reported that a Fox News guy said something stupid while on Fox News as a Fox News guy and this was wrong because…?

    The RINOs & FOX have achieved the high school equivalent of a popular guy being seen by his peers riding a Moped with an ugly fat chick hanging off the back. FOX, et.al. fell hook, line & sinker for the Alinsky definition of “fair and balanced”, that they HAD TO put the sleaziest, whore-buying, drunken, abusive leftist the “opposition” demanded on screen with a microphone to their millions of loyal viewers. I, for one, stopped watching.
