Geraldo to Haters: ‘I’m Turning Your Posts Over to Fox News and Facebook Authorities’

Geraldo Rivera is not shy about sharing his opinions, whether on TV, the radio or social media. He’s been supportive of Pres. Obama’s executive action on immigration, and has said as much on Facebook. “Bravo Mr. President for having the courage … to do the right thing for five million undocumented, but otherwise law-abiding immigrants,” he wrote last Thursday. Many of his followers don’t agree, and have said as much in the comments. So Rivera is taking an executive action of his own, turning over the “hateful, ignorant and racist” replies to the “authorities” and calling those commenters “little pieces of shit.”

Still, the comments keep pouring in, 1,491 at last count. This one sums it up: “If you don’t like honest replies, don’t post on Facebook.”

Geraldo Rivera: The ‘Real Threat’ Comes From ‘The Great White North’

geraldo_rivera_mi_130201_mainFox News host Geraldo Rivera has suggested the attack in Ottawa proves the “real threat” to the United States comes not from a poorly-defended border to the South, but from the far-longer and much less heavily monitored border with Canada.

“The danger is from homeground or Canada-based terrorists, not from Juan and Maria who just want to wash dishes, mow lawns, baby sit or work in the fields to make a better life for their children,” he writes on Facebook.

It wasn’t just the Fox News host noting the differences between borders. CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” asked viewers on Twitter whether they felt the border to the North was secure:

The Morning Ticker: Brokaw, Exclusives, Rivera

  • The Hollywood Reporter reports NBC’s Tom Brokaw‘s cancer “appears to be gone. “I’ve gotten some very good news in the last week… I hope that within six weeks I can be on a drug-maintenance program,” Brokaw said.

  • Geraldo Rivera‘s verdict is in on Jay Carney‘s first CNN appearance Wednesday night with Senator John McCain. Let’s just say he thinks the former Press Secretary has some cable news work to do.

CNN ‘Not Aware’ of Arwa Damon Lawsuit

arwa damonA CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser the network is “not aware” of a lawsuit over senior international correspondent Arwa Damon allegedly biting two paramedics “in a drunken rage” at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad last month.

The lawsuit was first reported by TMZ, which says Damon and CNN are being sued for $1 million by two EMTs who claim they suffered injuries after Damon became “seriously intoxicated” and “unruly and violent” at the Embassy. The lawsuit claims “CNN knew Damon had a history of becoming drunk and abusive, and had a penchant for violence, even when sober,” according to TMZ.

A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser:  “We are not aware of the alleged lawsuit and therefore have no comment.”

>Update, 2:04 p.m.: “We are aware of the lawsuit and are looking into it,” a CNN spokesperson says.

The New York Post reports Damon apologized for her behavior in an email to U.S. Embassy staff a day after the incident and said she was “beyond embarrassed”:

She said in an e-mail: “It’s been an extremely stressful time, I was exhausted, I had not had proper food all day and clearly miscalculated how my body would handle the alcohol consumed … Needless to say, I am utterly mortified and take full responsibility for my actions, which are inexcusable.” Read more

Bill O’Reilly on ‘Obama Basher,’ ‘Liberals,’ and ‘Anti-Obama Situation’ at Fox News

Bill O’Reilly went up and down the Fox News talent roster last night at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, offering his take on his colleague’s views on President Obama.

“You have Doocy, who’s an Obama basher,” O’Reilly told colleague Geraldo Rivera, who interviewed him. “Then you’re into Shepard Smith, who’s a liberal” (he also labeled Greta Van Susteren liberal). And on the cast of “The Five”: “They don’t like the president so much, but then you have Beckel [Bob] there, and he’s there to stick up for him. It’s not real fair, so I’d say that’s an anti-Obama situation.” O’Reilly credits colleagues Bill Hemmer, Martha MacCallum, Jon Scott, Jenna Lee, Bret Baier, and Megyn Kelly as anchors who lack agendas and aren’t ideologues. And his self-evaluation: “I’m tough on everybody.”
