One of the most interesting things about watching Fox News’ The Five is that each hosts seems to have some input in what stories they cover but not which ones the rest do. There are frequent jokes about whose segment got the most time and they sometimes make it abundantly clear when a story isn’t their cup of tea (witness Greg Gutfeld laying his head on the table or Bob Beckel playing cell phone games). Beckel clearly was not all too interested in discussing last month’s disappearance of Robyn Gardner in Aruba. He spent the whole segment making jokes about the suspect’s appearance and the dangers of online dating and then, at the end, he wondered allowed if they’d even be talking about this if Gardner were black.
