Fox’s Geraldo Rivera Caught In Crossfire Between Rebels And Gaddafi’s Snipers
Mediaite ^ | April 3, 2011 | Matt Schneider

Posted on 04/04/2011 10:10:10 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

Geraldo Rivera reporting from Libya truly demonstrates the great lengths he will go in order to report a story, as he found himself in the middle of crossfire between an “unruly gang” of Libyan rebels and the professional snipers from Gaddafi’s forces. Geraldo quickly ducks for cover, and the brave crew keeps the camera rolling.

Rivera described the chaotic experience:

“It was a wild, wild scene. And I was as worried about getting shot in the back by the good guys, as I was about getting shot in the front by the Gaddafi forces.”

Also with his on-the-ground knowledge, Rivera provides a startling assessment of the “rebel army,” suggesting they “have the fire discipline of an L.A. street gang.” As a result, Rivera advises against NATO or America arming the rebels, because if the rebels had more weapons, Geraldo predicts they would be a “grave danger to themselves and others [since] they don’t know how to use these weapons.”

Last time Geraldo pretended to be under fire he was actually back at the firebase, miles away from the shooting.

Looked staged to me. In the full length clip occasionally you see other people and they are showing little or no concern at all while Whoraldo crawls around on the ground playing make-believe.....

look at the Geraldo footage and picture where the cameraman was. He must have been fully exposed to take those shots.

I am surprised that the snipers have not hit his ego - that would be a difficult target to miss.

It’s tough for the media when both sides are the bad guys. I guess that confuses The Muslim Messiah and the RATs in Congress too.

He should have brought a pink tutu and sang “give peace a chance”. That would cause them all to stop fighting and love each other.

If its Geraldo, he either a) staged it or b) got in way over his head on purpose, endangering his crew.

I’m with you on the staged thing. At one point in the full clip there is a guy standing next to a truck randomly shooting into the air. Maybe Jerry Rivers would have been in danger real danger only if he were in a hot air balloon.

So much for for intelligent, objective reporting.

I guess this means Geraldo won't be interviewing Kadiffy any time soon.

I said the same thing..I could have hit the moron with the first bullet..Either they are lousy shooter or something is going on..This idiot was out in the open and there was no way the rebels could have missed him..

I think he had this staged..Didn't he do that once before stage a gun battle while he was out reporting..He is trying to get his rating up,I noticed he is a regular on Fox And friends trying to drum up business..
