1. He was talking to Neal Boortz.

That was lightweight. Guy deserved something MUCH stronger for even being on the set.

Too bad Beckel didn't pound his face in.

3. Neal Boortz said Headstart is a complete failure

and Beckel simply told him he doesn't know what he is talking about.

I agree. Headstart helps almost a million children across America with structured programs of ealrly learning.

5. Beckel works for FOX.

He's probably going to be in trouble with the bosses. Networks get fined for profanity. Hannity tried to help him by urging him to apologize and then apologizing on his behalf.

Not that Beckel was wrong or that Boortz didn't deserve it, but there are certain words that are still censored on TV.

33. He's probably not going to get in trouble with his bosses

If he was on as the token liberal, then he played right into their narratives. Fox News likes its liberal commentators to be either impotent, backpedalling milquetoasts or crazy loose cannons who offend the standards of decency of their good Christian viewers in the Real America.

38. background

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Beckel

Beckel initially evoked controversy in August 2011 when he implied on air that he had held back from criticizing his Fox News colleague Sarah Palin. He agreed with The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld when Gutfeld said he felt awkward making negative comments about Palin, because "it's like (badmouthing) a coworker." "I know exactly what you mean," Beckel added. "I'll be honest, I've pulled my punches." Both Gutfeld and Beckel later said they were joking, however.

In December 2010, with reference to Julian Assange, Beckel commented, "This guy's a traitor, he's treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I'm not for the death penalty, so there's only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch."

On April 16, 2012, Beckel said to Jennifer Stefano after she claimed that a program to help poor children did not work, "You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about!" Beckel did not realize the show was back from the commercial break.

I still can't believe Focks Nooze didn't bleep it out. I was told that everything gets delayed by a few seconds in case somebody uses profanity on air.

Lots of stations don't.

And you still have to be paying attention. you've only got a couple of seconds to press the dump button.

11. I admire people who say what they mean and mean what they say and DON'T apologize

To apologize is a sign of capitulation and weakness before your enemies.

Like Dick Durbin blubbering on the floor of the Senate.

17. It was directed to Jennifer Stefano

You can tell that she says failure so she can get the last word in, and Boortz wrote on twitter:

"OK. Look --- truth is the blond lady was on Beckel like a rabid shrew during the break. He reacted. I might have done the same thing."

27. Good for him.

Hannity is on at 10:00, I believe; no children should be watching that show.

And while I'm sorry that some people -- regardless of political views -- are offended by profanity, I feel people should be offended by the profane messages spewed by today's right-wingers.

I don't think children need to watch any cable news, but I kinda thought the fact that children should not be watching Hannity was a given.

30. Sometimes you just have to cut through the niceties and explain it bluntly

Intellectual debate fails with right wing know-it-alls like Boortz because the people on the right operate using their own private “facts”. There comes a time when the only method of communications it to just tell them they are idiots and leave it at that.

The way those selfish, warmongering, torture-loving, constitution-raping, poverty creating assholes bloviate makes my blood pressure rise just watching it on TV. If I was there in person, whoah...look out.

None of those idiots has a single f*ckin' clue what they're talking about. It's time we stopped behaving as if they were rational adults with a difference of opinion. They aren't. They're just trained parrots mouthing the words their masters dictate.

Isn't this a time where most kids have gone to bed? I would have to imagine most kids have either gone to bed at this point, or would not be watching Hannity in the first place.

If a Conservative said this, or even Hannity himself, I would have the same opinion.
