Sean Hannity may have started a segment on Monday night’s edition of Hannity by tossing the football around, but by the end of the block, he found himself playing referee. Hannity was caught off-guard after a heated debate between Fox News contributor and former Democratic strategist Bob Beckel and Tea Party activist Jennifer Stefano ended with Beckel dropping the F-bomb on live TV.
It took much convincing for Beckel to even acknowledge he was on-air before he issued a halfhearted apology — one that he quickly nullified by pointing fingers at Hannity — and effectively turned his back on the group to pout. Though it was a different kind of tantrum, I think it may have been the best display of petulance since… well… another famous face from Fox News. See the Beckel clip (NSFW, of course) after the jump.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Did Beckel have any right to be annoyed about being “caught,” or should he have realized after his many years in politics that you always have to watch your mouth around a live mic?
