Thursday on The View, the liberal hosts grilled their guest, FNC’s Geraldo Rivera, for comments he made about the pipe bomb suspect, and the media’s attacks on President Trump. Rivera, who's not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination, still took heat because he defended President Trump and called out CNN for being partisan and biased.
The media are hyping former White House aide Omarosa’s negative takes on “racist” Donald Trump and of course playing audio from her surreptitious tapes – with the networks devoting 93 minutes on the topic so far. On Monday’s Today show, co-host Savanna Guthrie teased: “Just ahead, our exclusive - live with Omarosa on the secret recording she made of President Trump...and the troubling picture she’s now painting of the president.” Guthrie even joked with Omarosa as she began the interview: “I should let you know, I’m recording this conversation.”
During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue highlighting the hypocrisy of the media for slamming President Trump when he goes after media outlets but looking the other way when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Fox News during a recent interview with The Guardian.
On Saturday's Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera contended that the Gaza strip is "the world's largest concentration camp." Thousands of Palestinians have recently massed along the Gaza border with Israel during a month-long protest. Fifteen have died in violent clashes with Israeli forces guarding the border. When show co-host Pete Hegseth reminded Rivera that Gaza is run by Hamas, a terrorist organization which has never recognized Israel's right to exist, Rivera deflected, saying "I'm not even going to argue it."
On Monday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe opened with a video montage that combined clips from conservative media talking about the release of the FISA memo with footage of Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone’s vault.
In today’s political climate, an observer would be roundly mocked if they suggested President Trump is the victim of a “spiteful” “witch hunt,” or even a “coup d’etat.” But during the Clinton impeachment drama in 1998 and 1999, liberal journalists trotted out all of those claims as a way to deflect and defend a Democratic President who was impeached for, among other things, obstruction of justice — the same transgression journalists are associating with President Trump.
In a Saturday morning appearance on Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera, who interviewed Fidel Castro in 1977 when he worked at ABC News, mostly defended the Cuban dictator whose death was announced Friday night.
Rivera, while admitting earlier in the five-minute segment that "Communism stinks, we all know that," and that "Communism cannot compete with capitalism," nevertheless insisted in the segment's second half that the "all awful" view of Castro is "simplistic," and that "he will be remembered fondly" by the Cuban people.
Thursday night on the O’Reilly Factor, Fox News Senior Correspondent Geraldo Rivera argued with guest host Eric Bolling, co-host of The Five, about whether or not the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was worthwhile, as even more controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation comes to light. Rivera contended that Republicans were “wrong” to investigate her emails and that they should “swallow their pride” and admit it.
On Thursday's The O'Reilly Factor on FNC, during a discussion of the terrorist attack in Nice, France, self-described liberal Republican FNC analyst Geraldo Rivera seemed to be in touch with his more right-leaning side as he criticized President Barack Obama for not dealing with ISIS and depriving them of a safe haven from which to attack the West.
Rivera declared that "I want to love the President," but then lamented that President Obama's Cairo speech in his first term was "misguided," as he "just didn't understand the Middle East." The FNC liberal further complained that "sometimes he's too cool for school."
Posted below: the April 18 edition of Notable Quotables, MRC’s bi-weekly compilation of the latest outrageous quotes in the liberal media. This issue: The “first-rate” Hillary Clinton is just like Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams, according to journalists.
Meanwhile, Chris Matthews told Bernie Sander’s campaign chairman that the socialist candidate stimulates his “erogenous zone.” Over on CNN, Chris Cuomo gushed to Bernie Sanders that “thousands of young people” are “shouting your name.”
On the same night that CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin smeared Ted Cruz as anti-Semitic, Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera on Thursday did the same thing. Regarding the Texas senator’s claim that Donald Trump represents New York values, Rivera slimed, “Aside from the stinking, anti-Semitic implications that I see in that whole New York values money and media coded message that he put out there.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's The O'Reilly Factor, FNC correspondent Geraldo Rivera declared that "you've got to be a nut to get the Republican nomination," and that Republicans "have a suicide complex" as he responded to host Bill O'Reilly recalling that Hillary Clinton's campaign has already started characterizing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as a "nut."
