On Hannity Monday night Bob Beckel got really ticked off after Neal Boortz said that Head Start was a failure, and dropped the F bomb - without realizing they were still on the air. Of course, it's not such a surprise, considering the wild antics that are such a big part of Fox News, I can see why he'd have trouble telling the difference:

Bob Beckel didn’t realize when the commercial break ended during tonight’s final segment of Hannity, caught in a heated off-camera argument with fellow panelist Neal Boortz. Off-air debates, we thus learned, are granted a much more colorful range of vocabulary than on-air debates, and as the cameras started rolling, the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the f*ck you’re talking about.”

In a blooper that is as hilarious as it increasingly becomes painful, it slowly dawns on Beckel what actually happened, as Hannity insists he apologize and Beckel, after saying he won’t several times, finally realizes the cameras are actually rolling. When he finally figured it out, he told Hannity to “run your show better,” then covered his head in shame and refused to speak, other than to say “I’m going to be fired.”

Hannity explained the situation– the two were in a heated debate while he and Tea Party activist Jennifer Stefano played catch with the famed Hannity show football. Beckel didn’t look over at the producer giving a five-second warning and inadvertently went off on-screen. When he finally realized what happened, Beckel was beyond contrite, instead saying he was going to get fired and refusing to speak for the rest of the segment. Both Stefano and Boortz tried to comfort him– Stefano trying to continue the policy debate, Boortz adding, “if they try to fire you, we’ll defend you.”

Well, sure. Because you can say just about anything when you work in the circus.

Fox edited out Beckel's cursing during their re-air of the show. Video of more of the damage control after they realized what he'd done below the fold.
