Bob Beckel: ‘We Ought To Impeach This Whole Segment’

BobBeckelFox News Channel The Five” co-host Bob Beckel, who always says what is on his mind, apparently didn’t like a segment on today’s show.

During a segment featuring Facebook questions from viewers, Beckel interrupted his colleagues by mockingly saying “I think the answer here is let’s impeach Obama,” and adding ”let’s make this another bash Obama segment and it will be fine.”

“Let’s impeach Obama, get the dogs out of the White House, and get some right-wing wacko nut in there,” Beckel said, to laughter from Greg Gutfeld. “Let’s impeach him, we ought to impeach this whole segment.

“I am hearing from our producers that I shouldn’t be dumping on my own show, well, I am,” Beckel added.

“You said that out loud Bob,” Kimberly Guilfoyle responded.

“Impeach Obama! Now, right now! Get rid of Bo!” Beckel said as the program went to commercial.

When “The Five” debuted two years ago today, Fox News execs gave the show a trial run at 5pmET. It was replacing the wildly popular Glenn Beck show. “The Five” quickly established itself on the Fox News schedule, and, on its second anniversary, is the second most-watched program on cable news.

Bill O’Reilly is Certain Howard Kurtz’s Ratings Will Go Up After his Fox News Appearance

CNN’s Howard Kurtz was in the Fox house last night, appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Kurtz, on his CNN show “Reliable Sources” had criticized a comment Bill O’Reilly made about the lack of reporting/analysis on of the president’s policy on drone strikes.

O’Reilly had singled out NBC News in a discussion with Bob Beckel. O’Reilly interchangeably uses NBC News, which does reporting, and MSNBC, which leans on analysis.

The O’Reilly-Kurtz made-for-cable-TV debate was lively but neither host conceded much of anything, because that’s not in the script. But O’Reilly is convinced the appearance will boost Kurtz’s ratings: “We are sure you will get a lot of email about it and run it on your program on Sunday. And you will get higher ratings.”

Howie’s take on the debate:

Will Howard Kurtz Appear on O’Reilly Factor? ‘Hell Yeah,’ Says Kurtz

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is doubling down on his comments from last week. If you aren’t caught up: O’Reilly talked to Bob Beckel about NBC’s coverage of drone strikes. He claims that he was referring to NBC’s hypocrisy in covering drone strikes compared to waterboarding, but the original segment does not make that clear in the slightest.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, O’Reilly dedicated his “Talking Points” segment to the issue, and took on CNN’s Howard Kurtz directly.

WATCH:


Kurtz will be on “The O’Reilly Factor’ Wednesday.

Bill O’Reilly To Address Controversial NBC Drone Strikes Comment Tonight

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly will address a comment he made about NBC News coverage of drone strikes on tonight’s “O’Reilly Factor,” TVNewser has learned.

If you aren’t caught up on the matter: during a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, O’Reilly decided to criticize NBC News for its lack of reporting on President Obama’s drone strike program. He asked Bob Beckel whether he had seen any reports on NBC about the program. When Beckel said that he had not, O’Reilly said he hadn’t either “and neither has my staff.”

Why would they go crazy over waterboarding, but ignore the drone strikes?” O’Reilly said. Adding that he thought the network was “protecting the president.”

WATCH:

The problem was that NBC news was the outlet that brought drones back to the news cycle earlier this week, when Michael Isikoff revealed the Justice Department memo outlining why and when it was legal to kill American citizens using drones. Isikoff appeared on a number of NBC and MSNBC programs to talk about his scoop, and it was referenced many more times in other segments.
