Bob Becklel, Liberal Fox Commentator, Fired Again, This Time for Making "Racially Insensitive" Remark to Black Fox IT Employee

Just a lot of bad news lately. Not about Beckel -- I could care less.

But Fox is just really losing lately. Ailes died, and their ratings have been dropping.

e sudden death of Roger Ailes (R.I.P.) yesterday is a grim omen for the network he envisioned and built. In the wake of the recent upheavals at Fox News, the conservative cable television network’s ratings are experiencing a precipitous decline from cable news leadership for the first time in the history of the channel. As the rest of the mainstream media continue their efforts to undermine and “resist” the Trump Administration, this development bodes ill for the future -- not only of the unique kind of fair and balanced if right of center reporting pioneered by the Fox News Channel (FNC), but of the prospects for conservatives continuing to have a major media platform, maintain power, and advance their agenda in the months and years ahead.

By "precipitous decline," he means this:

The TV Newser ratings summaries tell the story. Compare the data from random pre-scandal date of Thursday, November 17, 2016 with the latest, Thursday, May 11.

Pre-scandal, FNC comfortably won the prime demo (age 25-54, the group that interests advertisers) in both prime time and all day. In prime time, FNC's 646,000 prime demo viewers were more than double either CNN (234%) or MSNBC (217.5%) totals on a November 2016 Thursday. The ratios were even better for Fox in the all-day traffic for the prime demo: 274% of MSNBC and 218% of CNN's prime demo viewers.

By last Thursday, MSNBC won the prime prime time demo with 635,000 viewers, 126% of FNC's prime time demo. Poor CNN was still beaten by Fox, but the ratio was painfully close to 100% --109.3%, to be exact. The all-day traffic also shows decline for FNC, but it still managed to win the top spot, bringing in 104% of MSNBC's traffic and 106% of CNN's viewership.

I take no joy in these figures. We need Fox to thrive.

The Murdoch Babies are like that female owner in Major League, trying to push attendance low enough to justify a move to mainstream liberal respectability.

3 Listen, I'm no fan of Beckel or even Fox News.

But since a racial discrimination claim against Fox already existed, could this IT guy just have recognized this was his Big Moment to join the suit?

Absent any kind of real evidence, I'm skeptical.

4 You can make a real argument that talk radio has had a significant positive impact on advancing conservatism, but I'm not sure you can say the same for Fox News.

Beckel is an annoying asshole who should have been fired back when I was watching Fox ... but this "racially insensitive" thing is, obviously, total, unmitigated bullshit.

"Racially insensitive" ... give me a friggin break.

FOX News has needed a competitor from the right for a long time,

to hold them in the center.

Now that they're going full progtard, there is a YUUUUGE opportunity here for someone.

If I had enough money and influence, i'd do it.

22 I think if we calculated the math, the tv news business does more harm than good, and all the effort by all the kings horses and all the kings men to make Fox useful again are bound to be futile.

So any news about how bad things are going for them... I am Julie Andrews, twirling in the Alps declaring "this is all the f**ks I could give."

28 Don't care about Beckel, because he's an enormous jackass; the kind that likes to talk like a tough guy despite being near 60 with a body made of 70% goo and a liver made of %100 petrified wood.

But the mismanagement of FNC by these effete Aussie twits is disgusting. Doesn't the network have investors or a board of directors? How do they watch this implosion and not do something?

75 "The Five" was OK for me as late-afternoon news and politics background noise/chatter while I did home chores, but it's not Ready for Prime Time. Tucker is OK, but his looong segments, where he tries to embarrass his Progressive guests and get them to admit that their arguments are illogical and crazy, are wearing very thin for me. I stopped watching Hannity years ago.

Maybe they should move Cavuto and Dobbs to Fox News prime time. Assuming the management wants to retain what has been their core prime time audience and not pound FNC into the CNN and MSNBC mold.

Obama is gone (hallelujah!), so a slight FNC dip isn't shocking, and the loony left has whipped itself into a paranoid frenzy, so a MSNBC rise is perfectly logical. The real story of the ratings shift is that MSNBC (and to a lesser degree CNN) is SURGING by feeding the crazies, so expect them to get even more deranged.

93 3 Listen, I'm no fan of Beckel or even Fox News.

But since a racial discrimination claim against Fox already existed, could this IT guy just have recognized this was his Big Moment to join the suit?

Absent any kind of real evidence, I'm skeptical.

Posted by: kallisto at May 19, 2017 05:12 PM (gssPL)

++++

I read that the Black guy was from IT and when he came in, Beckel said something "insensitive" about the guy (referencing his race), and then left the room. Makes me wonder if Beckel's reason for not wanting to be alone with the guy was fear that he would get dragged into the suit. Maybe even joked about it or just admitted it.

Since everyone is being so circumspect about the actual words that came out of Beckel's mouth, it's hard to tell.

113 "We" don't need anything. I must admit, before this month I thought that major networks would understand the sleeper success of shows that can appeal to conservatives, and would at least avoid flushing away billions of dollars.

So much for the Last Man Standing. But thing is, that behavior only worked in the pre Internet era. If gleichschaltung is corporate policy, in a free population it results in a population becoming more extreme, inversely proportional to their cultural marginalization.

Murdoch will turn it into Sky News USA, because he wants one global news network like the villain in Tomorrow Never Dies where he has the same basic platform, branding, and broadcasting team for everywhere rather than different channels in different places.

Sky is more right-leaning than CNN, but that's like saying Roseanne Barr is more attractive than Helen Thomas.

I would imagine that the current environment at Fox is dicey - that HR is at the ready to quash any whiff of controversy after the Ailes and O'Reilly messes.

I think FoxNews was doing to liberals the same thing CNN and MSNBC do on the other side - those other networks like to put on really lame conservatives who are not very good arguers for their side or people at the extreme who might say something outrageous on behalf of the right.

This is probably an opportunity for the Murdoch kiddies to purge ineffective leftwingers and bring in people more appealing to argue the Left side of things.

Like Ace said about the movie Major League, that analogy is spot on.

233 So, I've been toying with this idea, bear with me for a second. I see this in my job, related to the actual people who work in the profession and their professional performance, but I think it can apply to a situation like this.

If people are held to an arbitrary standard of idealized behavior, there comes a point where they decide to just say, "Screw it! I'm not even going to try any more." And I mean decent people who make a good faith effort to get along with others and be respectful (may or may not apply to Beckel). Constantly getting the message that you are a bad person as gauged by some unachievable measure wears thin.

I have phrased it thusly:

When the 'perfect' becomes the enemy of the 'good', eventually the 'good' stops trying.

236 O/T from WaPo today:

"Although the case began quietly last July as an effort to determine whether any Trump associates coordinated with Russian operatives to meddle in the presidential election campaign, the investigative work now being done by the FBI also includes determining whether any financial crimes were committed by people close to the president."

So the Special Counsel investigation has already morphed into a general investigation of the finances of close advisers to Trump, even before Mueller himself is up to speed.

I'm guessing Bannon or Mnuchin. Those guys were at Goldman Sachs and did Hollywood financings and Mnuchin was involved with a mortgage lender.

When you have business people who have been involved in many complicated financial transactions over a long period of time, it really can become a case of Stalin's "show me the man and I'll show you the crime."

259 I don't like people getting fired for stupid remarks, but Beckel has been throwing the race card around like crazy so fk him if he's hoisted on his own petard.

Posted by: Dirks Strewn at May 19, 2017 07:35 PM (iWW0H)

260 Most likely scenario: Beckel thought there was something sketchy about the black guy, figured he might be a criminal pretending to be IT so he could get into people's offices, and went out to try to confirm the guy's identity.

Background: white gal I know used to date a handsome well spoken and genial black career criminal with a $700-a-day heroin addiction. How did he get the money? By dressing nice and going into office buildings in Boston and NYC pretending to be a tech guy taking out expensive office equipment for repair.

I'm sure people were suspicious but he lied as smoothly and consciencelessly as Obama, helped by the fact that people were afraid to question him. Beckel can tell you why. He got away with it for years.

Eventually got caught, in and out of prison ever since, committing who knows how many crimes. At least thousands of grand thefts. Don't know if he had a violent side but given his pride in what an excellent liar and manipulator he was that is certainly a possibility.

He is one of millions. La creme de la creme maybe, but the extreme number of conscienceless black criminals is the reason that a person can very reasonably have the reaction that Beckel did (if he actually did have any strong reaction) to an unknown black coming into his space.

If this is what happened Beckel should explain and defend his reaction. If society doesn't want people to react to unknown blacks with heightened concern that they are liable to turn out to be criminals then it has to do something about the FACT that blacks commit virtually every kind of crime at five times the rate that whites do, and the something is simple: put ALL serious criminals of all races in jail or in the ground and keep them there, starting with the first strike. Then there won't be much risk of any unknown person, white or black, turning out to be a criminal. The trash has already been taken out.

This is how to get rid of the very real white privilege of not having everyone you meet for the first time exhibit a high level of concern that you are going to turn out to be a vicious criminal. Just get rid of all the vicious criminals.
