BREAKING: Fox News Just Fired Important Host In The Network – You WON’T Believe Who Is Leaving…

Beckel, who has served for more than a decade as one of Fox News’s most visible, on-air liberal stereotypes, has parted ways with the popular right-wing-commentary network.


On Thursday, Mediaite reported that Fox had fired The Five co-host following his four-month absence.

The network had confirmed that he was in rehab for addiction to pain meds. Mediaite has been on the “Where Is Beckel?” beat for months.

“We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn’t hold The Five hostage to one man’s personal issues,” Bill Shine, Fox’s executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.

“He took tremendous advantage of our generosity, empathy and goodwill and we simply came to the end of the road with him. Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera will be among those rotating on the show for the near future.” (A Fox News spokesperson had originally told Mediaite that the split was “amicable.”)


A representative for Beckel could not be reached for comment. However, Beckel tweeted on Thursday that the “Fox statement today baffles me,” and that he will “respond in the appropriate forum. I will miss you all.

    Beckel & Juan are not important in my book. They are sour grapes which shows a bad example to next generation.

    I didn’t know what Bob was like before his absence, but all the times I saw him on the Five since then, he seemed absolutely consumed with hate. I just have to believe it was related to his illness. Maybe he can come back when he’s back to normal, but until then the show will be better without him.

    Yea!! I have no problem listening to some form of intelligence coming from the liberal side but Beckle was down right stupid. Even the other panel members had no respect for him. Good ridance!!
