    Geraldo Rivera Rants About Media Critics Reporter Lashes Out At Networks On Web Site Posted: 12:17 p.m. EDT April 30, 2003 Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera is still filled with "smoldering anger" from the way the media reported on him being asked to leave Iraq for drawing troop movements in the sand. Rivera wrote on his Web site,, that the media stories were a "grotesque exaggeration." He especially blames MSNBC, who he says conducted a "Get Geraldo" campaign. He seems to go after Joe Scarborough and Keith Olbermann, though he doesn't mention them by name. He wrote that MSNBC...

    They're in the Army Now Not Really By Karl Zinsmeister Posted: April 4, 2003 ARTICLES National Review Publication Date: April 21, 2003 The embedding effort in the current war is like nothing I've ever seen before. No corporation, no educational institution, no other government agency has ever invited me and other reporters into their war councils, let me read their secret memos, given me unfettered 24-hour access to their workplaces and workers. It's a tremendously brave gamble on the part of our Defense Department. In many ways, the gamble has paid off. Being shot at inevitably gives reporters fresh respect...

    Fair and balanced?Fire Geraldo! Posted: April 4, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 Tribune Media Services, Inc. It's one of the bloodiest battles of the war so far. And it doesn't even involve any American soldiers. It's the battle between MSNBC and FOX over Peter Arnett and Geraldo Rivera. For the most part, coverage of the war in Iraq has been excellent, on all channels. It's a triple news bonanza. From the Pentagon's daily briefing, the broad overview of the war. From Central Command in Qatar, the daily battle plans and progress reports. And from "embedded" reporters, live, unedited action from the front...

    Geraldo Rivera should be glad he got out of Iraq without a broken nose, according to a former Green Beret who says the Fox News star has a history of jeopardizing military operations. Ex-Army commando Keith (Jack) Idema isn't surprised that military officials accused Rivera of leaking their positions on the air. Idema tells us that, when he served as an adviser to Northern Alliance forces in Afghanistan, he was ready to "punch out" Rivera for allegedly putting his coalition comrades at risk with his newsgathering. Idema, who figures prominently in Robin Moore's best seller "The Hunt for Bin Laden,"...

    ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson is urging the Fox News Channel to fire loose-lipped swash-buckler Geraldo Rivera for giving away the location of the 101st Airborne over the weekend. After praising most of the frontline reporters now covering the Iraq war, Donaldson told WABC Radio's "Curtis & Kuby," "There are two reporters who have been rotten apples. [Peter] Arnett is one and he's been fired. Geraldo Rivera is another, and he ought to be fired." Taking note that Fox has apparently worked out a deal with the Pentagon that will allow Rivera to cover the war away from the front...

    THE Pentagon says Geraldo Rivera is welcome to go back into Iraq with U.S. troops - now that he's learned his lesson. Chased off the frontlines by charges he'd compromised troop safety, Geraldo Rivera yesterday left Iraq for Kuwait - where he was immediately re-assigned as a "general war correspondent." But the Pentagon last night said Rivera can go back if Fox gets another opportunity to "embed" a journalist with troops, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. David Lapan told The Post "As long as it is clear to him and to [Fox News] what was wrong the first time and...

    Fox News Channel has wasted no time in dancing on Peter Arnett's TV grave. Roger Ailes' merry pranksters launched a promo Wednesday that trashes the just-fired Pulitzer Prize-winning newsman as well as FNC rival MSNBC, which ran his dispatches from Baghdad. An image on the screen shows Arnett reporting for MSNBC as a man's voice says: "He spoke out against America's armed forces. He said America's war against terrorism had failed. He even vilified America's leadership. And he worked for MSNBC. "Ask yourself - is this America's News Channel? We report, you decide. Fox News Channel. Real journalism, fair...

    While veteran reporter Peter Arnett wasted no time beginning his new career as a weekly newspaper commentator, it wasn't clear whether Geraldo Rivera has a future as a Fox News Channel correspondent in Iraq. Military officials accused Rivera of disclosing unauthorized information about military movements after a report Monday in which he squatted in the desert and outlined military movements in the dirt. The Pentagon said that Fox had agreed to remove Rivera from his posting with U.S troops in Iraq. With the 101st Airborne Division involved in fighting, Lt. Col. Dave LaPan said Wednesday he wasn't sure whether they...

    Fox News Channel correspondent Geraldo Rivera has been given a one-way ticket back to Kuwait City. A spokesman for the cable news network said yesterday that Rivera has "volunteered" to return to Kuwait from the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq, where he had been reporting on the war. But the Pentagon already had said the controversial talk show host turned foreign correspondent was going to be removed from the troop after revealing too many details about its location in a Sunday night report. Rivera was allowed to report from Iraq yesterday while his case was reviewed by military officials. Though...

    Washington -- I had hoped to make a thus far unmentioned aspect of the recently deceased Daniel Patrick Moynihan's life the sole topic of this column today. Then from Iraq has come news regarding the hopefully-deceased Geraldo Rivera. Surely his career as a journalist is dead, but perhaps not. He has suffered so many near-death experiences, all owing to Rivera's singularly low character and shabby journalism. Yet somehow he survives. So to say the journalistic career of Rivera is dead might be to put the cart before the ass. Consider the ass. Before Fox News hired him he had a...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A day after the Pentagon demanded he leave the war zone in Iraq for divulging U.S. troop positions in a broadcast, maverick television reporter Geraldo Rivera has "volunteered" to leave the country, the Fox News Channel said on Tuesday. Rivera, who was traveling with the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division, ran afoul of military commanders with a live report on Sunday in which he sketched a map in the sand to show viewers his relative location in Iraq and where troops might advance next. Pentagon officials said Monday that Rivera's report "compromised operational security" of the...

    (2003-03-31) -- Iraq's vice president, Taha Yassin Ramadan, said 'suicide broadcasters' Peter Arnett and Geraldo Rivera are part of a "coordinated effort to thwart invaders who can't be defeated by conventional warfare." He also raised the specter of more suicide broadcasters on U.S. or British soil. Meanwhile, Saddam Hussein's regime presented Mr. Arnett and Mr. Rivera 'postfamous' medals and large financial contributions. Calling the tactic a "routine military policy," Mr. Ramadan threatened more such attacks on Americans and Britons -- even on their own soil. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer dismissed the Iraqi threats saying that American news networks "have...

    Geraldo Rivera says reports of his journalistic death have been greatly exaggerated. Although it was CNN that claimed the U.S. military was expelling Geraldo from Iraq for "violating the cardinal rule of war reporting Monday by giving away crucial details of future military operations during a live broadcast," he blamed his old network, MSNBC. "Some rats at my former network, NBC, are spreading lies about me," Rivera told Fox from Iraq. He said he was going all the way to Baghdad with the 101st Airborne and had had no conflicts with the U.S. military "MSNBC is so pathetic a cable...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Veteran reporter Geraldo Rivera, a correspondent for Fox News, is being removed from Iraq by the U.S. military for reporting Western troop movements in the war, the Pentagon said Monday. "He was with a (U.S.) military unit in the field and the commander felt that he had compromised operational information by reporting the position and movements of troops," Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman told Reuters. "The commander thought it best to get the reporter out of his battle space and we understand he is being removed from Iraq," Whitman said. Fox News in New York had no immediate...
