Fox’s Geraldo On Arizona Shooting: “This Event Affects Sarah Palin’s Political Future”
Mediaite ^ | January 9, 2011 | Alex Alvarez

Posted on 01/08/2011 10:55:24 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Late Saturday night, Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera, discussing the Arizona Safeway shooting that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford injured and six others dead with Tea Party 365 co-founder David Webb, “went there” by invoking former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Palin’s name has been linked to reports on Saturday’s shooting thanks, in part, to the “crosshair” imagery used in her so-called “Hit List” of 20 politicians, previously posted on website “Take Back the 20.”

“However unfair the link is,” said Rivera, “I think that this event affects Sarah Palin’s at least short term political future.” He then offered his prediction that, tomorrow, Palin’s name will (still) be tied to the media’s flurry of reports on the shooting, facing “criticism and scrutiny” for a perceived link to alleged gunman Jared Loughner.

I could care less who is on the ballot in 2012. I’ve already decided that I’m voting for Palin. I’ll write her in if I have to.

History repeats. The media selected John McCain just like they will select Romney, only to kick him under the bus. Their right. GOP is the stupid party..

Geraldo is smoking dope. This guy was connected to the left. They are backing away from this nonsense as fast as they can now.

Um, as another story on FR showed quite clearly, DailyKos had an article about that same group of Democrats and it used the terms "target" and "bulls eye" in citing the need to de-elect these people.

McCain won the nomination because he beat the other candidates. No one would listen when warned it would be him or Guiliani. They went on and trashed Rudi including the wholesale purge here of his supporters then flopped around bringing up absurd alternatives to McCain all of whom were roundly rejected by most Republicans. It was not the media which did all that.

Fox News needs an earful - Geraldo does not determine who runs for political office, nor who will watch Fox News in the future based on a leftie loon’s predictions. If they want responsible journalism as their mantra, Geraldo needs to be shown the door. By the way, he and Shep have alienated millions of tea party and conservative viewers today alone.

Same here. I take these attacks on Sarah Palin as personal attacks on me. I’ve had it with hate filled liberals and so called “concerned” Republicans. They can all go to hell.

I had to turn the channel, couldn't watch him. At one point others were talking about Congress-members that have been attacked in the past, and they brought up the shootings in the 1950s at the capital where the shooters were Puerto Rican nationalists, Geraldo got all uncomfortable and wanted to change the subject. But it was his own brother that brought it up!

Sarah Palin has no history of violence or any history of inciting people to violence. She is as disconnected to this event as a bull frog. Tea Party people and Republicans have no history of violence.

For fun though let us say that is not the case. Let us say that the tea Party and Republicans are murderous thugs. And that as the media seems to be saying we all know it. If true why would this congressperson, her aides and others go out in to the public without some serious security. Why would they even have this event? Why would they not warn the public that they were in danger and 9 year old kids might get hurt or killed?

There are URLs for the Screen Shots of Jared Loughner's web pages before the LEFT attempted to scrub the sites.

And you honestly believe Rudy would have fared better?

Do you honestly believe with all the liberal crap Rudy had been associated with he would have fared better with the base of the GOP, you know, the social conservatives?

“I could care less who is on the ballot in 2012. I’ve already decided that I’m voting for Palin. I’ll write her in if I have to.”

I am with you....PDS has become a pop fad.
I do not suffer from PDS, like many that are said to be on our side. That includes many FReepers and talkers such as Michael Savage.

Excuse me (WHORE-aldo, NYSLIMES, et-al) - but what the HELL does Sarah Palin have to do with this ugly shooting??????!!!!!

Sarah has NEVER said anything about shooting anyone.

The shooter, by all info so far, is a raving Leftist Liberal Wack-Job.

Nothing about the Tea Party has any observable connection

Daily Kos actually listed the victim in question as a target two years ago... where is the outrage? OH - that is a liberal turn. Liberal turds love each other’s smell....

I don’t want Sarah as our candidate for POTUS, but crap... she doesn’t deserve ANYTHING in regards to this shooting...

What’s bad is that the left is up and running with their crap and it will be until Monday before conservative talk radio can fight back. A lot of damage will have been done by then.

Not so sure about that. The DNC smear machine has lost huge amounts of credibility. The response on the internet is strong and swift as we speak and the left is already back pedaling.

Her career isn’t in nearly as much jeopardy as Gerry’s.

His photo can be found in a dictionary next to “has-been.”

Stupidity. That’s why he works weekends and is largely forgotten by the public. What a schlemiel.

As Rush says, Gerry only shows up on Fox when somebody dies. He calls him “The Grim Reaper.”

I agree. Geraldo is just stating the obvious. Just because he's predicting something to happen, that doesn't mean he believes it ought to happen.

If this were is really the case (unfair linkage to Palin) then any decent journalist would make it their first and second order of business to vocally repudiate such slander.

To fail to do so is to be willfully complicit in the calumny...

Mayor Giuliani would’ve been even worse than Senator McCain, hard as that is to conceive of. When Senator Fred Thompson tanked, we were in a world of hurt.

I was shocked at how blatant was the smear.

Especially coming as it was from Fox.

I am still shocked at it. It disgusts me.

I don’t have any respect for Geraldo but after tonight he should not be working for any legitimate network. I’m not mad, I’m disgusted. This was trash.
