Fox News Analysts Backpeddling On Remarks About Sarah Palin
When you work in broadcasting, probably the first thing you learn is to not say any negative comments on air about your co-workers. it’s just an unwritten rule that has more to do with common sense than anything else. As reported by Yahoo.com, Greg Gutfeld and Bob Beckel are finding out the hard way that this is a huge no-no. The pair made some negative comments about Sarah Palin on the show “The Five” on Wednesday after they showed a clip of Sarah angrily defending herself against some Tea Party critics. Gutfeld said on the air that, “the only problem talking about Sarah Palin is that she works here and it’s like a co-worker. And if I say something bad and I see her in the hallway I feel really awkward and wrong. So I just kind of say, ‘That was a good job.’”.
Co-host Beckel added more fuel to the fire when he chimed in with, “It has nothing to do with that,” he said. “It has everything to do with your paycheck. That’s why you feel awkward about it. I know exactly what you mean. Many times, I’ll be honest, I’ve pulled my punches on it.”
The two TV hosts are now saying that their remarks were blown out of proportion and that people are “too sensitive”.
What do you think? Is Sarah Palin fair game for co-workers or were their comments over the line?
