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.

WATCH: Five Questions for ‘The Five’

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.

As they mark two years on the air, MediabistroTV has 5 questions for “The Five” (all seven of them.) We asked Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, Andrea Tantaros and Juan Williams about their co-hosts’ quirks, which member of “The Five” they really like the best, and their first big break in TV.

Was CNN Too Cautious in Reporting Rulings? Gavin Newsom Thinks So

While court-watchers awaited the Supreme Court decisions regarding same-sex marriage, the networks had correspondents in different parts of the country gathering reaction to those affected by the rulings. ABC News had Cecilia Vega at San Francisco City Hall where hundreds of people gathered to hear the ruling on that state’s Prop 8. But TV monitors were tuned to CNN which, as we have been reporting, has been very cautious — some might say late — in getting to the news of the rulings this week.

At 10:26, ABC News reported that the Prop 8 ruling effectively meant that same-sex marriages could resume in the state.

When George Stephanopoulos went to Vega and asked, “What’s the reaction?,” there wasn’t any. “It still hasn’t been announced here on this screen, so you will see it, if you stay with us any second I’m sure,” said Vega.

Five minutes later — an eternity in breaking news coverage — Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, ex-husband of Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, came on for an interview, saying, “George, we’re just literally a second away from this crowd about to erupt.”

They didn’t. So a minute later her added, “They’re all watching a network, not to be named, George. And for whatever reason there’s a delay.”

Another five minutes went by. Stephanopoulos interviewed Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and checked-in with Terry Moran at the Supreme Court, before wrapping up ABC’s coverage with the much-promised eruption in San Francisco, which by then, wasn’t much of an eruption at all.

WATCH: The Best Moments from ‘The Five,’ According to ‘The Five’

When it debuted almost two years ago, Fox News Channel’s “The Five” was billed as a temporary replacement for Glenn Beck‘s program. Today, the show celebrates its 500th episode and now ranks as FNC’s second most-watched program. Last month it had a 12-day hot streak as the #1 program in all of cable at 5pm.

Last week, MediabistroTV spent some time with all 7 members of the “The Five.” In this first of two MediabistroTV videos Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, Andrea Tantaros and Juan Williams reflect on the best moments from the first 500.

Is There Enough Coverage of the Trial of Abortion Provider?

The trial of abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell continues in Philadelphia today, and so too does increased coverage of it. Fox News host and attorney Kimberly Guilfoyle is in the courtroom and will provide coverage on “The Five” this afternoon. “CBS This Morning” had a story on it this morning and it was discussed several times on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today.

Late last week, there was much discussion about the lack of coverage. CNN’s Howard Kurtz talked about it at the close of his “Reliable Sources” yesterday. CNN, Fox News and MSNBC have done “a few stories,” Kurtz said, with CBS and ABC airing segments in January. Kurtz:

But there hasn’t been nearly enough on the trial. Perhaps the mainstream press is less attuned to a story that casts a shadow on abortion but the conservative media didn’t do much either. And it’s not like the staunchest pro-choice advocate would defend what Gosnell is alleged to have done. This is a gruesome case that journalists on both sides of the abortion question have told me is hard to stomach. That is especially true on television.

Kurtz also pointed out that coverage “is quickly picking up” after Fox News’s Kirsten Powers wrote this op-ed in the USA Today.

Fox News Anchors Were Urged to Attend GLAAD Event, Emails Show

GLAAD lashed out at Fox News this week after anchors Jamie Colby and Kimberly Guilfoyle attended the organization’s annual media awards, calling the network’s track record on LGBT issues “abysmal.” But according to an email obtained by TVNewser, a GLAAD executive encouraged Colby and Guilfoyle — among others at Fox News — to attend the event.

In a statement to Equality Matters, which is run by Media Matters Action Network, GLAAD’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro used Colby and Guilfoyle’s attendance to condemn Fox News:

If Kimberly and Jamie expect to attend future GLAAD events, they will first need to sit down with us to discuss Fox News’ embarrassing, biased and misinformed coverage of LGBT issues. The invitation is open. Fox News’s track record on LGBT issues is abysmal, and it makes no sense to me why any LGBT people or allies would want to be a part of that.

TVNewser has obtained an email from GLAAD director of creative development Marc Honaker urging a current FNC staffer to “ask [Roger] Ailes or Suzanne [Scott] to buy a table for FNC.”

Honaker, who once worked for Bill O’Reilly‘s show, said in the email that Colby and Guilfoyle had an expressed an interest in attending, writing, “We’d love to have lots of FNCers!”

5 Questions for ‘The Five’

Fox News’s “The Five” has gone from zero to 2.1 million (viewers) in just the last year and is now FNC’s third most-watched show. So we wanted to hear from the hosts about what makes the show successful. Here are 5 questions for “The Five” hosts, plus 2 bonus questions for the alternates.

TVNewser to Eric Bolling: What is the one ingredient of the show that is making it click with viewers?

Eric Bolling: I think the secret ingredient is that we all get along extremely well. That’s real, not forced and I suspect the audience can sense that. Mr. Ailes came up with a unique show idea and that was impressive. Then he found a group of people who get along and enjoy each other’s perspective and input. For that Ailes is a genius!

TVNewser to Kimberly Guilfoyle: After your role as prosecutor in a San Francisco dog mauling case, you started getting TV offers from CourtTV, CNN, MSNBC before joining Fox in 2006. What do you miss most about your life as a prosecutor and how often do you find yourself using those skills on The Five?

Kimberly Guilfoyle: I think what I like the most about my change in profession from a prosecutor is that I am able to be an advocate for families, victims of major crimes, or individuals who do not normally have a voice or someone to speak for them and get the story out to the public. As a prosecutor, you are always arriving at an issue or case after the injustice has occurred. As a host and journalist on The Five and a legal and political analyst at Fox News I am able to tackle issues and stories and bring them to the public’s attention especially when the mainstream isn’t covering a story.

TVNewser to Greg Gutfeld: Since the show is live at 5pm (not taped and airing at 3am) how often to you have to check yourself before saying something that might not go over well with the audience or your co-hosts?

Greg Gutfeld: I never do. The whole point of doing something live is the risk. And I figure if you run something by someone, you ruin the spontaneity of the moment.  But If I think that what I might say might hurt their feelings, then I won’t do it.  Like yesterday,  I was going to bring up something that happened before the show. There was a group of school kids in studio for a tour. One of the children had asked Dana if he could take her picture. Dana said, “Do I go to your school and ask to take a picture of you?” Dana had a point, but that didn’t stop the child from crying. I was going to bring that up on the show, but I didn’t want to embarrass Dana, despite her obvious insensitivity towards America’s youth.

TVNewser to Dana Perino: Which do you like better: being a member of the media or keeping the press in check, which was part of your job as White House press secretary?
