Bob Beckel (The Five) and Shep Smith …. hands down they are blunt and tell it like it is …. and they draw non-fox type viewers.
Beckel is funny as hell yet seriously humorous in combating with his four co-hosts on The Five .. and if you subtracted Beckel from the five the end entertainment result would be zero …. the other four are a combination of typical Fox hyenas and mimics – without a shred of intelligence amongst them. That includes Bush’s former press secretary.
Attesting to his open and frank manner Beckle has made many interesting and at times controversial statements on The Five in 2010 such as the revelation that "I'm a recovering addict and cocaine was my drug of choice."
More recently headlines like "Beckel: ‘Right winger’ doesn’t ‘know what the f*ck’ she’s talking about The Raw Story. 4/17/2012" and
"Fox News' Bob Beckel: 'Once Again We Put Something On The Air That's A Flat Out Lie'" when discussing with his co-hosts the out of context attacks against OUR President for his comments about how it takes a nation to build it alluding to businesses.
Shep has an edge to him … like Derek Jeter and Ford Motors ….. and when faced with overwhelmingly obvious Fox BS … Shep does not back down from calling it as he sees it.
Just yesterday Smith, who has previously spoken out in support of gay marriage didn't mince his words, though he avoided directly mentioning either Chick-fil-A or Huckabee.
"It's National Badminton Day," he said. "Let's forget National Day of Intolerance. Let's just stay with badminton."
Why I love these guys!
The only reason these two entertaining human beings are on Fox is that they are very well paid and they generate profits as they are very popular – their core audience would normally click away from Fox News quickly when scanning the cable news channels.
"It is what it is" from Bob & Shep – and if you are a cable news political junkie like me then you know what I mean.
