Skip to comments.Geraldo’s ‘Rachel Maddow’ Moment W/ Sheriff Arpaio.
Posted on 03/29/2010 9:21:59 AM PDT by BradtotheBone
Its not that I liked Geraldo before. I dont actually know anyone who watches his show other than on YouTube. But..hes now officially become the Rachel Maddow of FOX News.
This is how he started his interview with Americas Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
With the exception of CNNs Lou Dobbs. For millions of American latinos the most unpopular person in this country is my next guest the so called toughest cop in the nation. The highly controversial sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio. And as I said earlier with Gov. Huckabee, Joe has been recently been stripped of federal authority to enforce immigration law. And again understanding that many of you disagree with me. I am delighted. Its exactly, Joe, as I advocated in my latest book. Im going to send you an autographed copy, The Great Progression. It was the right thing for the President to do to strip you of immigration enforcement jurisdiction. But, Sheriff Joe let me ask you right out. How do your cops decide who to card? Who to ask whos a citizen and who is not of this country.
The rest of the interview follows the same vein of Maddow-style interviewing. You can watch the video by clicking the image below.

Besides under the Reconquista/Intifada movement, they are just laying claim to this land by birthright.
FOX NEWS—the UNbalanced side. < shrugs > Nothing new to see here, GR has been a liberal since even before he uncovered that great story at Al Capone’s vault. < snickers >
Bleah. Geraldo is an idiot, and I have no clue as to why he’s still employed by Fox. Never liked him, still don’t, and probably never will.
Fox should have fired him after he threatened to spit on Michelle Malkin next time he saw her.
Is Fox willing to kill the golden goose over Immigration reform? This is the great wedge issue, actually a sword blade hanging over the Republican Party’s neck.
Whorealdo: one reason I no longer watch Fox.
Gee - what a shock to find Whorealdo coming down on the side of illegal immigration.
I..I feel faint...
Why doesn’t Islamabama go ahead and set up his federal police/army police for and get it over with.
This country is gone when the federal government can tell a county sheriff what to do and how to do it. The county sheriffs were the one law enforement branch that I always thought we could count on to be on our side. That won’t be the case if they don’t exist.
As for Geraldo, he was Fox’s first move to the left. It’s moving that way more and more.
Can't there be ONE single network that isn't infested with these tools?
Geraldo has always been a bottom feeder. He is the sideshow barker of television.
Never liked him, still dont, and probably never will.
Fox should have fired him after he threatened to spit on Michelle Malkin next time he saw her.
Can’t stand the cocky liberal @sshole. I change the channel from Fox the minute he comes on. Disgusting little twerp whose ego is twice as big as he is. I wish they would can his butt from Fox. They treat him like royality on Fox & Friends which I find repulsive. He sickens me.
At best, he could be called an entertainer, but never a reporter.
Same here, he’s just one reason. Greta’s tabloid show is another, and the self-serving gasbag O’Reilly is another.
I caught this interview last night and was disappointed big time. Sheriff Joe is upholding the law. If people Geraldo has an afinity for are breaking the law... there’s a price to be paid. Arpaio made it clear at the end of his interview, he’s not writing the laws, he is ENFORCING them. I’m on the other side of the country, but from what I read Sheriff Joe seems to be one of the few things going right in this country.
I say come here legally. Otherwise take a hike back across the border. Not much more complicated than that.
Don’t insult sideshow barkers by lumping geraldo in with them.
well spoken. period.
Geraldo is an outmoded, quixotic media curiosity only slightly less titilating than the news ‘copter live feed of 149 Higway Patrol cars following a white SUV around the Los Angeles freeway system. The sum total of Geraldo’s media value could be bought and paid for with the contents of Al Capone’s vault.
Any one who thinks Sheriff Arpio is unpopular does not have a clue....I wish he would run for president!!!
Geraldo tried to push his way through a bunch of miners here in West Virginia to impose his style of journalism on the widows of a miners during a cave-in. He got punched in the nose for his trouble, and left without his story.
FOXNEWS does such a great disservice to its viewers by featuring this most disgusting person on TV. Sheriff, I commend you for your comportment when there’s a pile on the other end just waiting for a shovel.
Geraldo takes the side of the Hispanic minority in all instances. If a Hispanic was caught red-handed raping little Anglo children, Geraldo would insist that the perp was the victim.
[Dont insult sideshow barkers by lumping geraldo in with them.]
You’re right. Geraldo’s more like the two-headed pig.
FOX took FoxNews off of online streaming through the computer, so I no longer watch it.
I listen to WMAL out of Baltimroe, MD, mostly . . . Chris Plante, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin. Occasionally I listen to WSBA910 out of York, PA, in the PM because they have Michael Savage.
Fox is MEDIA first, Ratings first. They are no more fair and balanced than my dogs.
Guess I'll have to settle for refusing to look him up on YouTube.
Actually there is no comparison between Maddow and Geraldo.
Maddow’s a much more of a man that Geraldo could ever be.
In a word, balance. They seem to think that they have to offset their midlle of the road to slightly right staff with at least one hard lefty!
Had to get up at 3;30 to take the wife to airport, or would’ve missed Geraldo. I thought the sheriff handled him nicely.
Jerry Rivers should have been charged with and convicted of treason when live, on international TV, he drew a map of where our troops were and where they were headed during the invasion of Iraq. He should have been executed for treason.
The man is scum.
I watched Geraldo cut his journalistic teeth. He was a twit then, and he’s a twit now. I don’t understand why FOX keeps him on unless they think it represents part of their “fair and balanced” broadcasting. If that’s the case, I’m thinking that liberals with a brain would be crying foul....oh, wait....liberals with a brain...now I see why he’s still there.
I always wondered what the circumstances were around GR getting his fat nose flattened. As a native of West Virginia, this warms my heart.
Developing a ‘’profile’’ in police work, is one of the oldest tools of law enforcement, PC has put the practice under a cloud. PC is MAOS’ LITTLE RED BOOK STUFF.
HO....WBAL out of Baltimore
WMAL out of Washington DC...you did ‘run’ the WMAL lineup though...
Geraldo is a racist.
So once again Geraldo proves he is no better than CNNs leftist Sanchez, suppose now he will make Ricks list. Neither of these so called reporters is for either poorer American citizens or us veterans. Here in Pennsylvania even our union construction workers are laid off work for a very long time now, and we have 424,000 of our own legal children in poverty. That is 15.4 percent of all the children in Pa. Our governor Fast Eddy Rendells little city of Philadelphia gave free child birth delivery to a minimum of 1,800 undocumented women in the twelve short months of 2008. At present the lowest estimate of illegals State-wide are 3.8 million. Over 60 percent of these illegal aliens are all high school drop outs. Another amnesty would bankrupt many States, and the amount of children who would be eligible for (SCHIP) States Children Health Insurance Program is staggering. Not including undocumented in Pa. there are 1,211,000 legal Pennsylvanian citizens without health insurance.
This area once was coal, garment, mills, shoe factories and steel sustaining our lives. The jobs are long gone, and the number of illegals have tripled. We have a high population of Nam vets & many elderly whose life, blood, & sweat built this county, and are now living on a meager $12,000 a year social security, no COLA increase, while paying over 3 thousand in taxes on their old home. Our property taxes were reassessed in this recession doubling many for 2009, and due now 2010 taxes increased another 15%. One elderly person living alone here is also paying over $350 on two different sewer bills, while rental properties harbor 9 to 12 adult illegal border jumpers. All of whom really contribute much to our inadequate sewage treatment facilities. Two County judges busted on federal corruption; they took bribes to send our kids to juvenile detention. A replacement judge sent to hear cases lasted about one week or until he tried to choke his wife. Our still head judge wiped out a few mailboxes on his way home from the bar and left the scene of the accident, but he is such a nice guy of course we all know he wasnt over the legal driving limit. ALL democrats and that is not half the crap, court house employees, county commissioner same, school board members busted, sewer authority funds and other taxes stolen. Our County prison employees union, court won 17% pay raise was just put on hold until 2012, and unemployment is over 12%, while illegal border jumpers are still working 16 hours a day.
Though this particular region of Luzerne County, Pa. might be a bit more corrupt than most, I needed to mention it first so you can see why hometown people all over the United States of different sex, color, race, religions and politics are seeing Arizonas Sheriff Arpaio as a true American hero. Just as the HOPE of many citizens elected President Obama Sheriff Arpaio is giving HOPE to many, many citizens all over our Country.
Deportation would sure provide many jobs in every field of employment. While taxes have already greatly increased on the poor, they are only being used to the advantage of this poor minority of high school dropout border jumpers. Our children of many colors are growing up lazy without proper work ethics unemployed because illegal border jumpers are doing the jobs we held at 15 years of age. As a lifelong Catholic here is one Catholic priest who is actually for us poorer hardworking legal citizens of all Color. It is a 10 minute video filmed next door to Pennsylvania in Harlem, N.Y. Every word is so true.
Father Bascio on the immorality of illegal immigration
I’ll say 2 positive things about Geraldo’s show: Kimberly Guilfoyle has nice legs and Laurie Dhue is back. Now if they would just dump Geraldo...
I don't know if you have watched Greta recently, but her show has actually gotten quite good. The "tabloid" stuff is mostly gone, and she is reporting on mostly political stories. Some of the best reporting on Obamacare came from Greta.
Fox needs to keep it balanced, so they keep that Liberal idiot, along with others. Alan Colmes anyone? I am a Vietnam Vet and Geraldo was among that bunch that gave the returning Vets grief.
Between Geraldo and Shep....it’s too much
give Brit (either one) Shep’s spot
or one of the hotties...
Banderas after she foals would be great or Megan....
Geraldo is a Jewish shmo who pretends to be Fernando Lamas
Now you’re insulting 2 headed pigs.
For millions of American Legal Latinos the most popular person in this country is Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Just need to say thank you because I am thoroughly enjoying Arizona politics.
P S Sheriff Arpaio as a fellow Veteran in Pennsylvania with a BA in the BS of political science, I would be honored to volunteer for your 2016 campaign should you decide to run for the office you deserve; The Office of the President of the United States.
Back in the 70s, wasn’t he partially responsible for mental hospitalsreleasing patients — to the streets — who then became homeless? I remember him reporting on the horrors of those institutions, but at least they had a shelter.
Now — when He comes on the air, I change channels. His open liberalism hasn’t changed a bit.
Joe doesn’t have to worry about enforcing “federal law” on immigration, he’s enforcing STATE law. If the feds don’t like it, they can stand outside the county lines and take the illegals to MA or somewhere up north.
arpaio is under investigation by the feds for this
Watching that video was so hard on me...
Sheriff Joe, I love what you do, and thank you for your service sir!
“Sheriff Joe, I love what you do, and thank you for your service sir!”
Sheriff Joe is mentioned in this great video!
MUST SEE!! The Flush the John Song has gone viral and is on YOU TUBE! Exposes the REAL John McCain.
Why, Jerry? Because the Sheriff actually enforces the law? Or is it because those in his jail aren't treated to the usual social club atmosphere?
