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
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 Hollywood hypes
the black IT genius
, which any Democrat would love.
Then again, maybe Beckel knows that Hollywood’s black IT geniuses
are only make believe.
