Skip to comments.Fox’s Geraldo On Arizona Shooting: “This Event Affects Sarah Palin’s Political Future”
Posted on 01/08/2011 10:55:24 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Late Saturday night, Fox News Channels 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. Palins name has been linked to reports on Saturdays 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 Palins at least short term political future. He then offered his prediction that, tomorrow, Palins name will (still) be tied to the medias flurry of reports on the shooting, facing criticism and scrutiny for a perceived link to alleged gunman Jared Loughner.

These people are certifiably insane.
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..
lol— me to
Geraldo is smoking dope. This guy was connected to the left. They are backing away from this nonsense as fast as they can now.
Me too. The media has to be stopped. They are all left wing lunatics. That Sheriff is a Left Wing Moonbat. Palin in 12. Just to drive the Libs nuts.
STOP watching FOX .
Yea Geraldo certainly is!
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.
Geraldo is certifiable.
This has NOTHING to do with Palin. What an IDIOTIC bunch of garbage.
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.
I swore off Ted Baxter, Whore-aldo, MetroShepSual and Gomer Huckleberry many moons ago.
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.
Huh? You think the media is NOT going to do what Geraldo predicts? I think there is no question that that is true.
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?
Fox has been particularly obnoxious in attempting to tie this to the tea party.
The stories coming out right now are exactly what the shuts the left up when they try this kind of attack...
“I could care less who is on the ballot in 2012. Ive already decided that Im voting for Palin. Ill 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.
He needs to be fired. Immediately.
This is not news.
It’s vile Left-wing smear.
Yeah and the Whore is doing his part to make damn sure of it.
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...
Geraldo needs his ass kicked and I mean kicked hard
arrogant POS makes me sick
Why Fox pays this idiot is beyond me.
Yep. I look forward to the crow-eating contest by left wingers tomorrow now that that their own words will be used against them.
we need to each and every one call Fox all day and night til this POS is dumped or FOX goes down the bottomless pit
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.”
Write directly to Roger Ailes.
Kos’ bulls-eye seems a more likely culprit for a targeting symbol than Palin’s register marks.
The PDS crowd smells blood in the water. They will have a feeding frenzy on this subject for as long as they can.
I’d love to and will as soon as somebody can come up with the money to start a REAL conservative network.
(I hope he sees this LoL!)
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.
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.
Once the truth comes out and it can’t be sugar-coated either.
Full exposure and full description of the vile, Lefitst homosexual, child murderer, would-be assassin, mass murderer.
What is this “decent journalist” thing you speak of?
They’ve been doing that for years.
Somehow, Ailes seems to think they have value at Fox, though few others agree with him.
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.
Anyone have any contact info on who we can complain to at Fox Snooze?
Red dots do it to me. They look like laser sights!
