    The #MeToo campaign has already taken a lot of on-air TV personalities down so you cant help but wonder who will be next. I dont think were ready as a nation to take down a non-conservative black man for inappropriate sexual behavior that would be stereotyping and/or profiling. But by my calculations were up to Hispanics. So what do you think? Will it be Geraldo Rivera (aka Jerry Rivers)?or Esteban Colberto (aka Stephen Colbert)In case youre unfamiliar, Esteban is Colbert's Mexican doppelganger and host of Colberto Reporto Gigante. Yet despite the fact that one could effectively argue that Esteban/Stephen...

The Fox News reporter tweeted Wednesday that the sexual harassment issue is so red hot right now there is no room for any thought or opinion but hang em high. He added: If News wasnt (formerly) a flirty biz then how do we explain so many newsroom courtships that have led to happy marriages? Rivera also suggested there was a slight chance that those making allegations were motivated by big money settlements.

    Geraldo Rivera said his trip to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria confirmed how badly biased the press is against President Trump. "Having seen how he was treated in Puerto Rico and then seeing the press about how he was treated in Puerto Rico it was almost an absolute 100 percent disconnect," the Fox News contributor told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. Rivera visited Puerto Rico and interviewed the president and first lady as they surveyed storm relief efforts in the devastated country. He remembered crowds who were "ebullient" about the president's visit. The federal government's response to Hurricane Maria has...

    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...

    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."

    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...

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...
