Democratic strategist Bob Beckel is often pigeonholed as a token liberal on FOX's late afternoon show "The Five," but yesterday made it emphatically clear that he's no useful idiot for jihadists.
Angered by horrific violence against shoppers at a mall in Nairobi and churchgoers in Pakistan, Beckel lashed out at "moderate Muslims" as "cowards" for not confronting extremist militants among them. (Video after the jump)
As part of the Fox News Channel's coverage of the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Texas on Thursday, Dana Perino, co-host of the channel's “The Five” weekday program and a White House press secretary for the 43rd president, interviewed her former boss “not to break any news here” but for viewers to meet and get to know him “as I do.”
That seven-minute discussion immediately drew fire from Howard Kurtz of CNN and the liberal Daily Beast website. He asked on the Tweeter social site whether the softball interview might have made a “mockery” of Fox's coverage of the event.
