Geraldo Rivera Criticizes Media for Covering Ukraine More Than Venezuela

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera told Larry King he blames the media for overcovering Ukraine when violence in Venezuela is much more relevant to U.S. interests.

“I don’t understand it,” Rivera said on King’s Ora.tv show “Politicking,” highlighting the fact that millions of Americans are Venezuelan.

“A lot of it is the media’s fault,” he added, saying the media is all over tumult across the globe, but doesn’t focus on violence “right next store.”
