Not many remaining in the woodwork when there's a post about Fox News. My only experience with it is if there is a national or international disaster, I tune to either Fox or some other news channel. Have never seen what brings on so many insults. If I don't like something, I avoid it. I wonder if Fox likes the publicity, no matter if it's negative.

I have looked at the ratings. They are really pretty meaningless. One tenth the number of people who watch a hockey game in Canada out of a population that is one tenth the USA is just pretty damn pathetic. Less than a million people in the entire broadcasting day is really zilch. Whatever the azzhats on Fox say is really meaningless and irrelevant. If the people who don't watch would just ignore their garbage they would soon die.

I'd think people like Don Imus, Donald Sterling, and Paula Deen would disagree.

Is it illegal? No. But people will still call for your head on a pike over it, and it's a pretty good way to potentially kiss a career goodbye...

It kind of seems like we have a case of a democrat saying he smacked a woman and a liberal trying very hard to somehow make that in to a republican scandal.

So a known right wing bias media has a token liberal who talks about punching women, and now all liberals like to punch women? If this meets a reasonable person standard for you then please bang your head against the wall until common sense arrives! For some of you this process may take quite some time.

WUTWUT, Beckel just made a logic point.......if you have to defend yourself, DO IT.

HEY, if a Guurleee attacks me.......I will defend myself, up to and including deadly force if needed and justified.

Don't hit a Gurrrrrleeee, LMFAO.

I am just disgusted that this guy is parading around Fox News thinking it's funny to discuss punching a women in the face.

I would think there would be some group yelling about this guy. I guess it's acceptable or as 30 to 66 says "yawnable".


Beckel said he punched the woman in self-defense......he was getting bitten.

Where are the women's groups? What about the war on women? What about calls for boycotting the advertisers? Or demands to cancel the show?

Someone can say they believe in traditional marriage and they dogs will come out gnawing and foaming at the mouth, demanding they be fired.

Now with the Fox News commentator bragging about beating a woman.....nothing is said?

Crickets from Fox News. I guess they must approve of this kind of thing. I would think punching a woman in the face is a felony assault crime.

Fox and their advertisers should be boycotted until this man is fired.
He's a leftie......or course he mistreats women.

Since I am a liberal Democrat, my first thought is that Fox hasn't done anything because they want people to think that we (liberals) are all like their "token". I'm not familiar with this man, and I don't watch Fox News, and this is just my opinion.
