Fox co-host's rape remark draws ire; Bob Beckel apologizes
On Fox program "The Five," the host asked, "When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?"
Fellow co-host Eric Bolling responded, "What are you talking about? It's rampant."
And a third co-host, Dana Perino (above, left), added, "In particular, date rape on campus."
Beckel apologized for his comments on the Wednesday edition of "The Five":
"It's a horrible, horrendous issue. And it's simply put, this, rape is rape. Whether it's date rape or it's somebody coming in off the campus trying to rape somebody else. I very strongly feel that way," he said. "And so, I just want to straighten the record out on that. I simply was trying to make -- there was not a distinction to make here. It simply was that date rape is rape. And that is, by any other definition, rape is rape."
