You don't think the FBI knows his REAL name?

It's a Secret Service responsibility, not FBI. And you have made my point. The SS/White House did know, and they aided in the cover up. On the other hand, there is no secret about Jerry Rivers.

Between this and the bribed columnists, there needs to be a bit of pruning in the White House press office.

What's not secret about Jerry Rivers?

What did the White House press office have to do with the "bribed" columnists?

He ought to jerk ALL of their press passes and then hand them back on an individual basis after having someone have a talk with them so they understand that they WILL maintain decorum in the White House or they will be escorted off the property.

My goodness, this is as despicable as the attack on the SoD for using an autopen.

See post 121 addressed to me.

Sounds like something democrat senator Frank Lautenberg would ask. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1340582/posts

Actually, I didn't say that they did have anything to do with bribing the columnists, but I see how you could have reached that conclusion from my juxtaposition of the two issues. I'll try to be more precise in my writing in the future.

I wasn't alive during the era of McCarthy, but from what I have heard---the black lists and all, this sounds like McCarthyism, where this guy is "run out of town" because of his political party, not his journalistic credentials---

Geraldo Rivera's birth name is NOT Jerry Rivers. That's an urban myth that has been debunked by Snopes. The name on his birth certificate is Gerald Riviera. The "Riviera" part was probably a mistake on his mother's part; Geraldo is the Spanish version of Gerald.

Look there are tons of reporters past and present who have used pen names. The founder of the New York Post, Alexander Hamilton, used the name "Publius" when publishing the Federalist Papers (along with Messrs. Jay and Madison). Samuel Clemens used Mark Twain as his nom de plume, even as a travel and political writer. As others have posted, Larry King's real name is Larry Zeigler. And I don't think Cokie Roberts' real first name is Cokie (although I haven't found definitive proof of this). Not everyone is born with a simple name made-for-television.

Wolf Blitzer's real name is likely Wolf Blitzer, though.

You left a key one off of your list of pen names. And it must be Bush's fault because it involved crime and corruption, bank scandal, and a Texas governmental office (but his apologists will try to make an issue out of the fact that it all occured before Bush was born.)

And, of course, after he was exposed and did his time in federal prison, he took refuge in New York City.
