    So Beckel, isn't involved in politics? He isn't a liberal? What?

    Robert G. "Bob" Beckel (born November 15, 1948)[1] is a progressive American political commentator and an analyst on the Fox News Channel, where he currently co-hosts The Five. He is also a columnist for USA Today where he writes "point–counterpoint" style articles with friend and political opposite Cal Thomas.

    snip

    Beckel was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign.

    Beckel is a graduate school professor of politics at the George Washington University.[5]

    He isn't worth listening to and doesn't represent the news media. He plays a character in order to illicit controversy and rabid response. Anyone reacting to these types of entertainers, be they left or right, are part of the problem, not the solution.

    Well, isn't that convenient for you...I say that liberals attacked Dr. Carson, you ask for names, I give you one, and as usual you dismiss it immediately....Sorry Joe, that is simply just too dishonest for me to continue with you....It's a waste of time to discuss anything with an ideologue such as yourself because you will constantly play the silly game of asking your opponent to meet a burden of proof that you yourself don't have to show...I'm not doing it anymore.

    FNC has more liberals on the payroll as contributors, and hosts, than does MSNBC have conservatives...That's a fact.

    Dr Carson is definitely a man that deserves respect and admiration. He went from poverty in Detroit to becoming a renouned neuro surgeon at Johns Hopkins hospital. You may not like his politics but you do have to admire him. For those interested, there is a movie about his life entitled "Gifted Hands." Cuba Gooding plays Carson. You can rent it on Netflix.
