California politicians call for Fox News host to resign over slur

By Jennifer Chaussee BERKELEY Calif. (Reuters) – Two California politicians have called for a host of Fox News Channel’s “The Five” program to resign, saying Bob Beckel’s use of the term “Chinamen” was racist. Judy Chu, a Democratic U.S. congresswoman from California, said on Monday she was deeply offended and that Beckel should go immediately. “The implications go far beyond the Chinese community by promoting a culture of intolerance that has no place in our society.” Fox News Channel said Beckel’s comments will be addressed on Monday night’s episode of “The Five” and noted that they were made by him and not the network or the show at large. Ted Lieu, who represents suburban Los Angeles and is running for the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat, called himself “one of those ‘Chinamen’ with ‘Oriental’ eyes” who immigrated to the United States and majored in computer science.
