Geraldo Rivera: Matt Drudge ‘doing his best to stir up a civil war’
The Washington Times ^ | July 30, 2014 | Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 07/30/2014 11:50:12 AM PDT by jazusamo

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera has accused conservative blogger Matt Drudge of trying to inflame conservatives and “stir up a civil war,” due to his website’s aggressive coverage of the border crisis.

“Shame on Drudge,” Mr. Rivera tweeted Wednesday morning. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’”

Mediaite reports that the top 15 stories linked Wednesday morning on DrudgeReport.com were about U.S. immigration policy, while another eight were dedicated to Ebola.

Poor Jerry Rivers, if anyone knows how to stir people up and inflame people it's the drama queen Geraldo.

The world hangs on the opinions of a heavyweight intellectual such as Geraldo.

His brains are stored away in the secret room with Al Capone’s treasure.

Drudge should really stop reporting on that stuff and help Geraldo find Al Capone’s lost stash.

The only thing I have seen on Drudge is links to other sites.

Jerry is attacking the newspaper delivery boy for what’s in the paper.

Do not trust Fox. Roger Aisles is a big liberal establishment pawn. They moved Hannity out of sight because he was exposing them. Why would they put fat boy Karl Rove and walruss faced ( never saw a country he wouldnt invade) Bolton on 16 times a day. I just read FR and Drudge for my news.

If I were a general in a citizen's army to restore America and our Constitution, Geraldo won't be on the top of our “get to” list, but he'd be on there somewhere.

We should just wait for the invaders to bring Ebola in before we complain, right Jerry? Okay. Forget Ebola. Let’s talk about all of the other diseases and crap they are bringing with them to America! Crap America has worked hard to get rid of for years. Idiot.

Honestly this man has a lot of nerve accusing another of being hysterical.

And he should put a shirt on.

Hey Jerry, if this is an "overreaction," explain to us why no images of the children have been allowed. All the ones that they're "protecting?"

Too embarrassing to show gang members and upcoming gangmember "children?"

In, “Exposing Myself” Jerry writes of knocking up a college friend:

He needed dough for an ABORTION but didn’t have it. Apparently the money was supplied after a liquor store ROBBERY. And the robbery involved some corrupt NYPD cop.

Geraldo Rivera has always been pro-open borders and pro amnesty. Even in his 20/20 newshow days he was doing illegal aliens are sympathetic stories on the southern border.

Drudge doesn’t write columns on his site so don’t know how he can be stirring anything up. Just because he posts a link it doesn’t necessarily means he agrees with it.

I think we ought to send Geraldo to the border and make him spend a few days in a closed up room with a handful of the new illegals. Since he thinks it is so safe.

How in the world could Drudge stir up a "civil war" reporting about a massive invasion of our Southern border by illegal aliens and encouraged by our President and Democrat Party, huh Jerry?

A "civil war" would indicate one group of Americans fighting another group of Americans, wouldn't it, huh Jerry?

If one group of fired up Americans stood up against the lawlessness going on and encouraged by our President at either the Southern border or at a location where our President through our own government agencies, are trying to sneak these illegal alien "children," would that constitute a "civil war," huh Jerry?

Geraldo had been doing a normal broadcast, but they dubbed in a sound of a whooshing mortar and Geraldo “sought cover” in order to avoid the “deadly danger”.

It was a ratings orchestration —there’d been no danger there at that time at all, turned out Geraldo had just been play-acting.

They chose that site cuz of all the stuff that had been dramatically knocked down and it looked so good it was just begging for some type of “live incident”, sorta like those video pranks where they put a “don’t press this button” out in the public square.

On that Angie Harmon cop show last night, her character was put on the same level as Geraldo for being snarky while the safe guy opened an empty safe for her.

I remember Geraldo being at the local Hooters when those trapped coal miners were finally rescued.

So Drudge is at fault but obama and the democrats are not culpable in any way? So telling the truth while the MSM stays compliantly (and conspiratorially)silent? geraldo is an uber moron lapdog apologist co-conspirator. . . He proved a long time ago that he has less than zero credibility. I can't believe Fox still has this creep on their network.

He once bounced a chair off his nose ,, also stood fast as bullets zinged by him ,, but it was the pursuit of Capone’s vault that most sums it up. Empty.

He is wrong on everything. Bad judgment all the time...issues of day, Bette Midler, Al Capone, voting for Obama. Yes, he voted for Obama and admitted it proudly, all the while saying he is a Republican. Go figure. The only explanation is that he is clueless about what is right and what is wrong and what reality really is. He is wrong about this border problem. Drudge is one of the few news outlets that tells the truth. What's in it for Geraldo as this invasion continues as it does. What is his solution. Perhaps he can open his home to some of these children and adult invaders. He is nothing but hot air.
