Skip to comments.Geraldo's Selective Fairness
Posted on 11/03/2012 7:02:57 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus
On Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera was extremely upset regarding what he considers to be irresponsible misinformation regarding Obama's culpability during the attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Geraldo said it broke his heart to hear Charles Woods, the father of slain former Navy Seal, Ty Woods, call the president a murderer.
I believe Geraldo is a member of the mainstream media sleaze who will do anything to protect their socialist/progressive conveniently black president.
I do not wish to argue the validity of the mournful poppa Woods' statement. However, I must say that I find Geraldo's efforts to bend over backwards to defend and be fair to Obama a bit much to stomach.
Remember the JonBenet Ramsey murder? On his TV talk show, Geraldo relentlessly lead the charge of suspicion against the parents of the murdered six year old girl. I remember thinking how arrogant and cruel it was for Geraldo to fan the flames of suspicion against the devastated parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, in the court of public opinion without any real evidence of their guilt.
Patsy Ramsey said she walked in her house one day and heard herself accused of murder by a guest on the Geraldo Rivera Show.
Geraldo hosted a mock TV trial which convicted Patsy Ramsey of murdering her daughter.
The JonBenet Ramsey murder was a worldwide news story. Had there been sufficient evidence, the Ramseys would have been indicted. They never were.
Upon milking every drop of TV ratings out of the Ramsey case, Geraldo's talk show moved on to other topics. The JonBenet Ramsey murder case remains unsolved. Patsy Ramsey died of Cancer.
Has Geraldo ever expressed regret for enhancing his career on the unfair assumption that the Ramseys played a role in their daughters murder? No, he has not. After Patsy Ramsey's death, the Ramseys were exonerated.
Geraldo's behavior towards the Ramseys was a perfect example of what Rush Limbaugh describes as the drive by media; similar to a drive by shooting. The mainstream media appears on the scene, wrecks havoc and many times destroys innocent lives. Without remorse or apology, they simply move on to the next breaking story.
Geraldo and his liberal mainstream media buddies lack scruples. They will say and do whatever it takes to drag Obama across the finish line, giving him four more years to implement their socialistic/progressive agenda. Obama's minions must be defeated.

I saw the hot anger between Geraldo and Eric Bolling on Fox & Friends yesterday. I thought Bolling was going to jump up out of his seat on the curvy couch and take a slug at Jerry Rivers.
I did not appreciate Jerry Rivers remarks about Woods.
Does anyone still pay attention to “Whoraldo”.
Don’t know if this is true; but in a previous post from several days ago, Geraldo took over Rush’s time slot in the NYC area, WABC.
I saw it, too. He was out of control. Coming right out of his seat to protect O. If it were Bush... well, they’d all be covering it, round the clock, in self-righteous anger.
Geraldo’s melt down on F&F’s this week, protecting the “Chair” went from personal attacks on Odungo to where he was saying he was defending the military.....in other words his screaming and yelling was basically a cover when he knew he was on very thin ice
Al Capone's safe
Being removed for drawing a map in the sand to show is location
If I am Geraldo I would check with MSNBC before his contract is up
I understand that’s true, and many listeners are thoroughly outraged.
Just imagine the Left’s ‘screaming & yelling’ if Obummer loses on Tuesday .... it’s going to be epic.
Geraldo/ Jerry was an ‘unofficial” member of The Young Lords, a Puerto Rican Leftist/criminal group in The Bronx NY, during the early 1970’s.
I won’t watch FOX until they fire Whoraldo and the one from NPR.
Let’s not forget his book from several years back of all his sexual conquests. A real champion of women. Probably a few aborted Whorealdos around.
Geraldo seems to be, IMHO, a racist. I can’t imagine him caring about anti-white discrimination, ever. He appears to have a Hispanic chip on his shoulder, and it would not surprise me in the least to find that Geraldo supports the concept of Mexican annexation of ‘Aztlan’, as long as it didn’t effect his own real estate holdings.
Grealdo made me totally sick last Sunday when he had Woods on and kissed Woods, who recoiled from Rivera.
Geralo has obviously been a disgrace evn prior to 1970.
He was in mourning last night on BOR, a beaten man. BOR would have none of it, cut him off each time. I had to laugh when he said “I am a war corresponent.” So?
For some reason he is 100% emotionally invested in this. It could be because he cannot accept he was so wrong about the video. To this day, he believes this attack was caused by outrage over that damned video.
He has totally lost it.
Thanks to the Boulder buffoons Detective Linda Arndt, Chief Tom Koby and DA Alex Hunter that never happened.
As former DPD homicide detective Tom Haney said, the murder of JonBenet Ramsey is no whodunit.
Does anyone still pay attention to Whoraldo?
Jerry is such a washed up has-been.
I saw that too. I thought Geraldo was going to blow a gasket. Eric held his own. I’m really surprised Geraldo isn’t fired.
Whenever I see Mrs Rivers’ little boy Jerry on TV i can’t help but think his face is a target rich environment.
I saw part of that display of ethical corruption and moral bankruptcy by jerry rivers, what a pathetic POS, he needs to be shunned from society, i turn the channel off of fox news whenever that pos racist comes on.
Hard to believe they would give Geraldo a 3 hour time slot even on the radio.
A wart on the FNC nose.
The ultimate example of "ED" on FNC, aka a useless prick.
When Geraldo dies, he’ll be remembered for Al Capone’s vault, getting his nose broken on live TV and drawing diagram’s in the Iraqi sands depicting the location of US troops.
Fox "Fair and Balanced" had to hire some obnoxious jerk to represent the left, Geraldo (aka Jerry Moore) fit the bill perfectly. He is one of those guys who, as a kid would've benefitted by a good old fashion ass-whuppin'. I don't think it is too late to try it and find out.
Are you talking about “Ed Schultz”? If so, then you’re a few channels off as he is on that left leaning PMSNBC
If I didn’t know better, I’d guess that Geraldo was personnally phoned by O himself. What other measure could generate such a response?

Even CNN smells something wrong w Obama and Benghazi
Whorealdo gets so upset when anyone attacks his weak spine, thin skinned, hybrid president.
The puke is President of the USA for Gods sake and if he cannot stand a little heat what the hell is he doing in the Oval Office in the first place.
Did Odumbo think the Oval Office was just a place to try and prove a hybrid could run one of the remaining superpowers (if so he failed big time) or did he want the job to destroy the country. My guess is he wants to destroy the USA via the Cloward & Piven strategy as 100% of his economic actions have been in complete sync with C&P.
I see G’s slimy face, I change the channel.
Rush was on WABC on Thursday and needlessly pre-empted for disaster coverage on Friday. Geraldo extended his 10-noon show. No need to panic.
If you go to the 5:50 point in the video of the exchanges, Gretchen Carlson vaporizes his whole faux argument about people bashing the military. I have never seen him more taken aback and suddenly realizing his whole schtick was gone by her comment. He had nothing to say and just looked at the floor. Sliced, diced and fillet all in one swipe.
He not only kissed him but was overtly shaking his head no as Mr. Woods was speaking about the _resident.
This guy is as despicable as they come.
I hope that one day I have the pleasure of meeting Jerry fist to face.
When ever Whorealdo is on I have to change the station. Fox should dump him to make it fair and balanced.
Jerry Rivers is an asshole delux
Didn't anyone notice how BOR (a consistently shrewd protecter of Obama) deftly inserted into the debate with Rivera that there was NO TIME during the whole length of the firefight and murder at the embassy for feints, relief or rescue of ANY type?
He stated this as a FACT, then quickly moved to another subject as though there's no other side to what he just said. He truly feels that HIS word from Mt. Olympus is all there is to be said on this issue.
O'Reilly, in his weasely, phony "fair and balanced", fence-sitting schtick is a NY closet liberal/statist. However, he's quite adept at fooling most of the people most of the time into believing he's a true conservative.
He's the most artful schmuck on TV at taking all three sides in a conservative vs. liberal debate with Geraldo or anyone else.
Geraldo was on O’Reilly last nite and O’Reilly wouldn’t let him schlock on...Geraldo looked like he needed his diaper changed.
Getting hit in face by a chair.
SWAT raid on wrong house live national television.....
That was a good day for Gretchen. She got GAME.
I have actually knocked Geraldo on his ass at least three times. We used to play football together (11 on 11 full blocking hard rush). Full disclosure...i consider him a friend and have enjoyed hanging out with him and he does know that i think he has his head up his ass most of the time.
What a tool. “I’m tired of people who have no combat experience blah blah blah.”
OK, Geraldo, I have combat experience. Where the hell were our assets in the area and why weren’t they ordered to rescue those people? At the very least, why wasn’t there any air support?
I’d like to see someone break Geraldo’s nose on TV. Oh, wait...
If Geraldo Rivera was a real journalist, he would look into, and report on, the credibility of Charles Woods.
Or, Rivera could explain why he considers the claim to be misinformation. The fact is that four people are dead. There has been no explanation or answer to Woods reasonable, informed concerns or questions. Many are wondering why the Democrats let them all die?
John 18:38 Pilate said to him, What is truth? The current administration would not know truth if it was staring them in the face.
Most of the time I can tolerate his idiocy, but on this issue, considering Mr. Woods, I find him loathesome.
If I were in his presence, I do not think I would be able to maintain my normally kind disposition.
She c*ck-p*nched ol' Jerry...
.... right in the n*ts*ck!
Well done, mama...
How come Jerry Rivers isn’t knee deep in water on Staten Island yelling about the lack of a rescue effort?
You know, like he did in New Orleans with Shep Smith.
It always amazed me that he and Smith found a way to the Superdome but those there could not find a way out.
I really thought it was hilarious on O’Reilly last night when he attempted to relate his “journalistic” experience in War Zones as qualifications to totally understand military strategy and our ability to move troops.
Tell that crap to Admiral Ham. He said he was ready.
Re: I am a war correspondent”
Some time ago I saw this fake prancing around some sand dunes in Libya without an impact vest or Kevlar screaming “incoming”. Actually there was no incoming. Having been on the receiving end of real mortar attacks in Iraq I can safely say his “incoming” was imaginary and done just for a photo op.
