Geraldo Could Sign A Big Contract — “Unless I Fuck Up Between Now & The Summer”

Here are a few of the highlights from “Being Geraldo,” Sridhar Pappu’s must-read in The Atlantic:

> “His contract with Fox will end in November. He has one more four-year deal left in him, he told me, after which he’ll have a kid starting school.”

> “I think this next contract could be my biggest news contract unless I fuck up between now and the summer, and I don’t intend to,” Geraldo says.

> “Geraldo’s brashness is less pronounced in real life than it is on television, and it dissipates even further over time.”

> “We’ll go back to Afghanistan,” Geraldo says. “One more Afghanistan trip, because of all the unfinished business. I just want to go crawling around there one more time.” He says Afghans are “the coolest poor people on Earth.”
