    Since the departure of Bob Beckel from Fox News Channel's "The Five," there have been a number of Liberal guest hosts sitting in his chair. Some are quite good, some are terrible. But only one makes me almost wish for Beckel's return: Geraldo Rivera. Okay, Juan Willliams sometimes gets me close, but he is a decent and likable "useful idiot" of the Left. When he is not boorishly shouting over those panelists who disagree with him, he is adamantly defending Hillary!'s email scandal as inconsequential. This, coming from the moron who disclosed US troop locations and future movements on a...

    Deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters Geraldo Rivera declared on Twitter Wednesday that the Democrats wave defeat was all about race and age. Obama, he wrote, was deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters, which allowed the president to get his "a** kicked" by millions of angry old white folk. In addition to the racial implications of his statement (sure sounds like the description of a lynching), as Twitchy notes, Riveras assertion is egregious in its assumptions about age demos: By the way, according to CNNs exit polls, Rep.

    After nearly two decades of continual victories in state legislatures, gun-rights proponents have suddenly hit some turbulence. Despite paralysis on the issue in Washington, mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado, Sandy Hook, Connecticut, and elsewhere have led five states to tighten their gun laws. Four of those states are liberal bastions, but the fifth is the formerly red state of Colorado, home of not only Aurora but also the Columbine massacre. Unsurprisingly, the Centennial State is also where the gun lobby is looking to make a statement in return with recalls set to take place September 10 against two state...

Rivera opened the interview by criticizing Bollings focus on Obamas actions on the night of the attack. He said that Bolling is buying into a false narrative...

President Barack Obama's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released the names of the thirty-one members of their Advisory Committee On Diversity For Communications In The Digital Age. This May 7 gathering is made up of a laundry list of left-wing grievance groups, with a smattering of radio and television companies included to break up the monotony.

Thats because Rivera is widely believed to support the reinstitution of the so-called Fairness Doctrine. Originally instituted in 1949 by the FCC, the Fairness Doctrine required broadcasters over the public airwaves to give equal time to opposing political views. Since talk radio is overwhelmingly dominated by conservative hosts, and liberal talk radio draws...

    Reports about the man that President-elect Barack Obama is expected to choose to manage the transition at the Federal Communications Commission emphasize his past role as a lobbyist and FCC Commissioner. But the truth is that Henry Rivera has never really left the FCC, having stayed active in its matrix of advisory groups from the 1980s right up to the present. And Rivera's agenda is no secret: figuring out ways to help minorities get a bigger slice of the telecommunications and broadcast media pie. In fact, as Chair of the Commission's Advisory Committee on Diversity for Communications in the Digital...

    Democrat Henry Rivera, a former commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, is expected to head President-elect Barack Obama's FCC transition team, a move that has sparked fear in media circles that the Fairness Doctrine may return to silence conservative talk radio. If reenacted, the "Fairness Doctrine" would require broadcasts over the public airwaves to give equal time to opposing political views. For talk radio, which boomed after the law's repeal in 1987 by building an audience devoted to conservative talk, the law's return would decimate the industry's marketability. Many fear the "Fairness Doctrine" would drive talk radio hosts like...

Rivera will keep his Saturday evening show "At Large." Rivera had quit his CNBC legal affairs show and joined Fox News as a war correspondent shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist...

    BAGHDAD After the US military insisted that Fox News remove former talk show host, Geraldo Rivera, from the battlefield for giving away US troop locations and movements, Geraldo has landed a job with the Al Jazeerah news agency. "Talk about an overreaction by the Pentagon," said Geraldo. "All I did was draw a map in the sand and compromise the lives of the members of the 101st Airborne, the brave 'Screaming Eagles' made famous by Steven Spielberg in Band of Brothers. Now if I'd been a reporter in Normandy, I could have helped the Germans and made the invasion...

    n an ordinary news day, CNN is like a sip of iced tea. Fox News is a gulp of Jolt Cola. It is the favorite news source of conservative-minded viewers, but Fox's anti-liberal sensibility is not its only draw. Even on matters as uncontested as the weather, Fox News's heart ticks to a faster, louder beat; it is a network that presents the news with pizazz and a frisky tone. ("Back to you, guys" is how reporters in the field address the anchors in the studio.) And its top commentators express a righteous indignation - mostly at the mainstream media,...

    GERALDO RIVERA: So, politics as usual? SUSAN ESTRICH: Oh, the worst Geraldo. You know, I thought I'd seen bad politics. I thought I'd seen smear politics. I thought I'd seen it at its worst. But I hadn't. This is worse than I could have ever imagined. I just think this is gutter politics, gutter politics at its worst. RIVERA: Mademoiselle? ANN COULTER: I assume she's talking about Kerry's attacks on his fellow veterans when he came back from the war... ESTRICH: NO, I am not Ann! COULTER: ...and called them baby killers and implied that when he picked up Jim...

    Bill punishes Cuba travelers Citing links to terrorism, State Rep. David Rivera announced a proposal to strip government benefits from Floridians who travel to Cuba, even if they do so legally. BY LESLEY CLARK lclark@herald.com A Miami Republican who prodded President Bush to get tougher on Fidel Castro is one-upping the president: He's proposing to strip food stamps and health insurance from those who travel to the island. Dubbed the ''Travel and Commerce with Terrorist Nations Act,'' a bill proposed by State Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, would punish those who travel -- even legally -- to Cuba by cutting off...

    "They have a saying in the news business," Geraldo Rivera related this week. "Reporters don't report buildings that don't burn." And with that introduction, he told a TV audience about the story that is being systematically denied to our entire nation: the success story of post-Saddam Iraq. Are we losing some soldiers each week? Yes. Is there some frustration in the public about electricity and water service? Yes. Are some Saddam Hussein loyalists throughout the land, making trouble? Yes. Has this opened a window for some terrorist mischief? Yes. But that's ALL we hear. No wonder the country is in...

    Rivera Amazed By Visit To Middle East by Jason Bellamy, Packers.com posted 06/22/2004 Over the past two years, Marco Rivera has enjoyed his share of unique experiences. The Green Bay Packers offensive guard has twice been to Hawaii to play in back-to-back Pro Bowls, and it was just over two years ago that he and his wife, Michelle, were invited to the White House to meet President George W. Bush. But compared to all of those events, and all of the Packers' victories in between, nothing stands up to what Rivera is experiencing now, halfway across the world and halfway...

    Geraldo just announced on Rita Cosby's show that he is going back to Iraq. Not only that, he announced that he's going to be driving straight through the country. Starting in Kuwait, and driving all the way up until he gets into Turkey. He brought a map up on the screen and showed the cities that he would visit, the highways he would use, and the times he would be there. Is he asking for it? Whats wrong with this guy? Should he take Rita with him?

Double hoof a guy when he is down? I am watching Fox and I thought I was back on MSNBC or CBS, ABC or CNN. Or where will Geraldo be next? When he moves does he go back to chameleon politics? Why is that the people that want the Pope to step down are not Catholic? Except for holier than thou O'Reilly. Who got his tie caught in his fly and his staff ignored...

    Pentagon removed Geraldo Rivera from Iraq Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera and his crew were flown out of Iraq Wednesday by members of the Army's 101st Airborne Division. Earlier this week, military officials accused Rivera of disclosing unauthorized military movements after a report in which he squatted in the desert and outlined military movements in the dirt. A reporter with KSTP Television in Minneapolis-St. Paul interviewed Rivera before he was transported to Kuwait by the 101st Airborne division. "I think I will go back to Kuwait. I feel like I have been scolded," Rivera told KSTP reporter Dean Staley,...

    So how many Freepers are going to watch the new newsmagazine show on broadcast Fox tommorrow? To get up to speed, see this previous thread. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/684085/posts. It's featuring Geraldo Rivera, Bill O'Reilly, anchored by Shepherd Smith. I also believe Laurie Dhue is going to be on the show based on some of the ads I've seen for it. I think I'll check it out. I wonder if it'll get off the ground.
