Geraldo's Gaffe at Virginia Tech
Somebody should tell Geraldo Rivera that he doesn't fit in at Fox News. He's still acting like the opportunist we always knew he was. Here he is at Virginia Tech where horror has just struck, interviewing the school's president, grilling him on why more wasn't done to prevent the massacre. What could the poor guy say? They did what they could. Then he asks the typical default, inane question about how he felt and what emotions he had when he heard the news. But the worst was when at the end of the interview tape, Jeraldo says "it's safe to say" that this is an "embattled president." Embattled? Why? And why is this a safe thing to say? And why is Geraldo evidently s already trying to create a controversy at this place where people are dumbstruck from the tragedy? The man should be canned immediately. Let Imus or somebody do his job.
