The Hazards of Live TV: #25,113

In what is yet another stellar moment for that sensational new show called Four on One The Five, Bob Beckel drops half an F-bomb… (via J$)

    Did you steal that from Joe or did Joe steal that from you? Regardless, it’s pretty funny.

  2. Spud really hates that show. It turned out better than I expected (and probably better than Spud expected), but it is obviously not a good permanent replacement. I still think Special Report will gain a second hour, at least through the election.

    I’ve only seen about 10 minutes of it. As anyone who knows me could tell you, I don’t have a lot of patience for politically unbalanced panels. Strike that. I have a problem when there are way more conservatives than liberals on a panel. I still watch MTP, etc.

  4. “Let us all agree together..except for that guy.”

    Dana vs. Andrea has its moments..Greg vs. Bob is always good, but so much of the show is four people repeating an exhausted talking point. Did you know that the right has been called racist and fascist for years? I never heard that one before..

  6. ^ Which is certainly true, but don’t then use it to rationalize boorish and utterly counterproductive behaviour by a nutty-ass congressman.

  7. joeremi Says:

    On Monday, Andrea went for “the President is against corporate jet deductions, yet he flies Air Force One..” I thought Dana was gonna choke her.

  8. lonestar77 Says:

    Ok, so Andrea should be gone. Who should replace her? I’d vote for the 3 name black guy (MLH).

  9. I hope he continues to drop F-bombs on occasion because, from him, it’s funny. And I hope Beckel gets paid more for this gig than the rest of ’em.

  10. The tamer should always earn more than the lion.

    Mark Lamont-Hill. He’d be good. He kills on Red Eye.

  12. lonestar77 Says:

    I haven’t seen Red Eye in a while, is he still on there from time to time? He’s not on O’Reilly anymore.

  13. Hill would definitely add something to the panel. Maybe even something worth watching.

  14. Yep, he was on a couple weeks ago.

  15. A somewhat rare quantity on Fox. A young, attractive, intelligent liberal who doesn’t inspire a “lock and load” response.

  16. As Spud said on twitter, it would be nice if they hired a regular lib contributor who wasn’t a has-been from the Mondale and Dukakis campaigns.

  17. Dukakis! There’s a fresh face.. 8)

  18. Joe, what about Joe Trippi? He’s a has-been from the Dean and Edwards campaigns.

    It would be great if Paul Begala left CNN and joined Fox. That would be fun to watch.

  19. Trippi hasn’t been successful. He’s the Susan Estrich of his generation…

  20. Joe Trippi got Janice Hahn elected in a special election just a week or so ago, and before that he was involved with the Jerry Brown campaign. I wouldn’t call that being unsuccessful.

  21. I’m talking big league successful. He wasn’t Jerry Brown’s campaign manager. And Jeffy Brown would have had to have been caught naked with kitchen appliances to lose to Meg Whitman.

    And I never said he was un-successful…at least not completely. Just that at the national level his win rate and his influence level are not that great.
