Tonight (4/16/12) on Sean Hannity's show, Bob Beckle was caught on live TV telling a female Tea Party representative Jennifer Stefano, "You don't know what the f*** you're talking about." Mr. Hannity told Beckle to apologize because they were coming back from a commercial and were on live TV. Beckle's response was to tell Mr. Hannity that Mr. Hannity didn't run his show right. Mr. Hannity again told Beckle to apologize to the woman; Beckle repeatedly refused until apparently someone convinced him he really was on live TV. Beckle was not sorry for cursing at a female who disagreed with him; he was not sorry for blaming his own abhorent behavior on Mr. Hannity; he was sorry he got caught. Like all liberal misogenists, the eventual apology was forced and sulking. Beckle belongs on HBO with his friend Bill Maher or CNN with other commentators who use obscenities to talk to or about conservative females. "Fair and balanced" does not include treating other guests--male or female--with hostile obscenities just because they do not agree with Beckle.
I've had enough. I know Mr. Hannity does not believe in boycotts, but I rely on Fox News ONLY as my news source on TV. Now I am done with Fox because it repeatedly tolerates the mistreatment of guests, especially conservative females. I can get my news online. I will boycott Fox News and encourage all Tea Party members to do likewise until Beckle is fired. Why do liberals get away with the most disgusting behavior, yet if a conservative had done this, there would be an immediate suspension, if not firing. Yes, there IS a double standard in reporting, and by defending Beckle's disgusting behavior, Fox News has joined the likes of the pitiful main stream media.
I will be heading up an effort to boycott Fox News and to contact your sponsors until and unless the same standards are applied to liberal hostilities that are applied to conservatives that insult or curse people on air or in print. This is inexcusable. We have put up with Bob Beckle, Juan Williams, and Kirsten Powers for far too long. There are Democrat/liberal defenders who do so in an articulate, considerate manner. These three are among the ones the Fox has given a free pass to for being sulky, insulting, and now obscene.
Enough is enough. No more support for Fox News until Bob Beckle is gone. Period. No excuses. No more free passes for liberal misogenists. I can get that insulting garbage on the main stream media TV/radio/print outlets.
