Did Bob Beckel Threaten Blogger Pamela Gellar During Live FBN Appearance?

Media

The Lid sets it up this way:

Here's something you don't hear very often from a Fox News Contributor "You're a woman, you better be careful about saying who I carry water for," but that was the threat Bob Beckel made to my friend, Pamela Geller editor of Atlas Shrugs during a heated exchange on Eric Bolling's Fox Business News show Money Rocks last night.

Geller says the off-air conversation wasn't much better:

When we cut to break, Beckel chided Bolling for not bringing "Jewish slumlords" on the show (referring to Bolling's segment on Imam Rauf's status as a New Jersey slumlord, so named in a lawsuit against Rauf by Union City). When I heard Beckel's Jew-hating belch, I said, "and you're an anti-semite." He  told me to "kiss his ass," to which I responded that he would never get anyone anywhere in the world to get with that.

Our lesson in media manners comes from Newsbusters:

Beckel's appearances on FNC have been infuriating at times, but mostly for ideological reasons.  He is, after all, a liberal.  But he clearly crossed a line tonight with his uncharacteristically aggressive attacks on Geller.  Even Arlen Specter knows that you don't start any argumentative statement with the words ‘you're a woman.'
