    The lefty stormed out of his office because a black guy from IT at Fox News came to service his computer. All of you lefties here that are calling us conservatives racist on a daily basis need to disappear permanently just like your fake news.
    Happy Friday!

    I never knew there were racists across all political spectrums. Also, with all the fake news, how do you know this actually happened?

    Funny how the only news on television that is accepted as real news by conservatives is falling apart. Another employee to add to their list of HR disasters.

    You will know it Genius when you no longer see Beckel on The Five. This is not his first infraction, Fox News gave him multiple chances, they're in no mood to play after all the sexual harassment crap that they went through.

    What political party were the guys accused of sexual harassment affiliated with?

    So a left-leaning idiot at Fox News gets fired for being racist and Democrats are hypocrites because of it? Huh?

    Sorry if I missed it, but I thought Fox hired these people because of their subtle racism.

    I don't even know what the comment was so I cant compare the situations, but I thought of when ESPN hired Rush Limbaugh and we all know why (to stir the feces and draw attention), then immediately fired him for doing exactly that.

    I enjoy the dissenting opinion on the five. I hope they replace him with that white-lash guy.

    are you mentally disabled. Seriously, this is the stuff that makes your day?

    No wonder the pseudo conservatives of today are so effed in the head.

    No the last time they fired him it was because he was taking too long to come back from a back injury because he was hooked on drugs.

    Why is OP and other conservatives here going out of there way to point out that this guy was a leftist?

    Does it somehow lessen the responsibility at Fox News for breeding a toxic culture of sexism and racism? He could have been a Libertarian or a Satanist and it still wouldn't change the fact that this happened at Fox News - the most vile corporate culture in America.

    Leaving the conservative politics aside, why are people defending this terrible corporation?
