    Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera quit his position at Yale University after the Ivy League school announced it would remove the name of a pro-slavery lawmaker from one of its residential colleges. Yale's Calhoun College was named after Vice President John C. Calhoun, a 19th-century slavery supporter and white supremacist from South Carolina who attended Yale. Yale announced plans to rename Calhoun College after Grace Murray Hopper, an alum of the school and a renowned computer scientist and Navy rear admiral, the New York Times reported. Rivera announced his decision to resign from his position at the university on Sunday...

    Here is video of Geraldo Rivera interviewing Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Martha's Vineyard where he is vacationing. Gates said the whole controversy surrounding his arrest was about "racial profiling." It had nothing to do with racial profiling! The police went to his home to protect his home! They were called to his home! They were not cruising around profiling anyone. Gates says Sgt. Crowley, who arrested him, is "reading his book" and "sent him a fan letter" the other day. He also said he does not think President Obama regrets his remarks on his arrest, apparently referring...

    Chaos erupted once again outside a Donald Trump rally, with protesters attacking Trump supporters and burning the American flag. One woman who was yelling back at protesters ended up being pelted with eggs by the protesters. Some are criticizing the San Jose police for letting the rally go on for far too long and grow out of control before they stepped in. On Fox and Friends this morning, Geraldo Rivera said these violent displays are going to hurt the Democrats' chances in November. "The violence is absolutely the worst thing that can possibly happen to the Democrats. Every time you...

    Geraldo Rivera declared that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could win 25 percent of the African American vote, adding that the GOP front-runner is not a racist. "I predict that Trump may get as much as 25 percent of the African American vote," Rivera said on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" on Thursday. "Why? Because he's anti-free trade or unfair trade. He's anti-immigration, the immigrants perceived by black Americans to being in direct competition to them." Rivera added that Trump is not responsible for bringing race into the political atmosphere, as the issue has been used by Democrats and Republicans...

    Appearing as a guest on Friday's Fox and Friends, FNC's Geraldo Rivera touted GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as "the reasonable man on the stage" at last night's presidential debate, and went on to praise Trump's "unparalleled courage" for taking a position of neutrality on the Arab-Israeli conflict. After acknowledging that the GOP presidential candidate would have to answer for his history of having illegal immigrants doing construction work for him, Rivera brought up Trump's position on Israel as he added: My point, Brian, is that in the big picture this was the reasonable man on the stage. How is...
  • Geraldo Calls FNC's Bolling 'Gringo' for Correctly Pronouncing 'Nevada'

    On this evening's O'Reilly Factor, Geraldo Rivera scolded guest host Eric Bolling for pronouncing the state of Nevada as Ne-VA-da. Condescendingly instructed Rivera: "It's a Spanish word, Ne-VAH-da. Gringo." There's just one problem. When it comes to pronouncing the name of the state, and not the Spanish word, Bolling was right and Rivera was wrong: "The only acceptable pronunciation of the state is 'Nev-AD-a,' not 'Nev-AH-da.' Pronouncing the state’s name incorrectly can draw ire among residents."--Time magazine. View the video here.

    Folks are furious at actor Sean Penn and Mexican-American actress Kate del Castillo because they got chummy with El Chapo, the notorious drug kingpin rearrested last Friday. Why exactly is that? Penn was not "acting" as a journalist, he was one when he and the soap star bravely entered the jungle and risked physical and financial harm to pursue the huge exclusive interview with the fugitive who was the most wanted man in the world. I would have done it. And I would have kept my mouth shut if I promised the source that I would keep my mouth shut...

    Geraldo Rivera, the longtime broadcaster whose face is seen these days on the Fox News Channel, has just lost his talk-radio show at New York City broadcasting giant WABC. Rivera made the news public on Facebook, where he said officials at Cumulus Media "do not intend to honor the handshake deal I made with the ousted company chief John Dickey, an agreement to extend my current contract for a year." "The decision to renege on our deal on the eve of Thanksgiving is especially upsetting coming in the wake of my emotionally charged and highly rated coverage of the Paris...

    Geraldo Rivera is in a war of words with Cumulus Media and its new CEO Mary Berner — which he says will spill over into a lawsuit. Rivera claims he’s been locked out of his studio at Cumulus’ WABC-AM after the company reneged on a contract extension he says he negotiated with a previous regime. Berner took over embattled Cumulus — the nation’s No. 2 radio broadcaster, with 454 stations in 90 markets — in September, after running Reader’s Digest.

    Jeb Bush’s imploding presidential candidacy sparked an explosive debate among Fox News hosts on “The Five” this week. Tempers began to flare after Meghan McCain, the daughter of Arizona senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, argued that while Bush is flawed candidate much of the blame for his sagging poll numbers could be attributed to him having “bad people around him.” Being the “only person that has been on a campaign that imploded and came back from the dead” she believes Bush can make a comeback. “He needs to clean house with his staff,” she said before her co-host...

    On Fridays edition of Fox News Channels The Five, occasional co-host Geraldo Rivera expressed little sympathy for the families of four Americans murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. Panelists were discussing the drip, drip, drip of former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons emails, and the scandal that was much of their focus. At the end of the dripping, like the fake stand-down order in Benghazi, this will be a fake scandal. It will have done its job Rivera started to say. Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., exploded. Benghazi is a fake scandal? she cut in. Benghazi is...

    Late last week there was an interesting exchange on Fox News involving a couple of anti-choice radicals and the eminent scholar Geraldo Rivera. Geraldo valiantly defended the honor of Planned Parenthood, pointing out that, despite the unhinged rantings of women-hating right wingers, there is such a thing as a good abortion. A good abortion, he explained, is sitting in a clean place, where the womans health is protected! As opposed to a back alley! As opposed to a back alley where the woman dies with some butcher cutting her to pieces! Indeed, women should not be butchered in back alleys;...

    A Fox News Channel panel became heated Thursday as two conservative hosts on The Five clashed with their liberal colleague over the Planned Parenthood controversy. Passions were ignited when Geraldo Rivera accused Eric Bolling of being against federal funding for Planned Parenthood because he is pro-life. Bolling was not in the mood for an on-air battle. Can you not do this again today? Can you not do this again today? he asked. Rivera continued hammering away at him. Im not commenting on abortion, Geraldo! Bolling quipped. Im commenting on selling body parts! What is a good abortion to you? Rivera...

    If Iran does take steps in the future to annihilate Israel, the leftist Jews who are criticizing Huckabee will never see it coming. And that, Mr. Obama is sad. As much as can be generalized, Jews have traditionally been liberal. This can be explained by the fact that Jews have been persecuted throughout history and they tend to identify with people and groups that are or appear to be marginalized. With the rise of the new anti-Semitism on the left under the guise of being anti-Israel but holding Israel to a different standard than other countries with serious human rights...

    "If you listen the comments in total, he's not critical of John McCain the war hero, he's critical of his Senate record," co-host Steve Doocy said. Responding and agreeing was co-host Geraldo Rivera, who was not as enthusiastic as Doocy, but did say that Trump would need to at least clarify his remarks. Later in the show, co-host Brian Kilmeade interviewed former Ronald Reagan advisor, agreeing that the situation was "blown out of proportion." Kilmeade continued to defend Trump, saying that "he went on to say 4 more times that he was a war hero." This statement was looked into...
