Gibson Thinks I’m A Pubescent Rejectionist

On Friday, TVNewser mentioned that Geraldo Rivera was subbing for John Gibson on The Big Story.

Gibson apparently didn’t notice the quotation marks around the post, where an e-mailer suggested that Geraldo take over the show. On his radio show yesterday, he said I “demanded” that he be “fired.”

My girlfriend loved hearing the audio. Click continued to read the transcript and find out why…

 GIBSON: Did you notice some blogger demanding I be fired this week?

PRODUCER: Uh, yeah, I sure did.

GIBSON: It was one of those TV gossip column places.

PRODUCER: Yeah, indeed.

GIBSON: And he said ‘I’ve gotta go.’

PRODUCER: Yes he did.

GIBSON: He’s said that before.

PRODUCER: Yes he has.

GIBSON: You know, I have always have trouble with pubescent boys in my audience. They tend to be rejectionists until they get a little older. Usually about the time they get a girlfriend, they become fans. So we live in hope.

PRODUCER: Clock is tickin’.

GIBSON: Winds up with a girlfriend, I’ll bet he’s a fan.
