  • My New Found Respect For Geraldo Rivera

    At last there is finally someone in the mainstream media who still has some guts. As we all know our favorite talk show host, Geraldo Rivera, has trekked out into Afghanistan to cover the war. He has decided to bring some firepower with him. He has admitted to bringing a gun for his own personal use, not just for his bodyguards. I never thought I'd see the day.

    This has created a great deal of controversy in the media. It's like the rest of those leechs can't comprehend the need for a gun in a place like Afghanistan. "Gun? Using a guun for self-defense? That's impossible! Why the Army should protect journalists. Blah, blah, blah"

    Here's a story from the Washington Post. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2001Dec12.html

      Right. Like I'm so sure those Afghan fighters who killed the 8 journalists really respect the Geneva Convention. They imprison people for spreading Christianity for pete's sake.

        WHY do people pay ANY attention to Peter Arnett anymore.....considering the FACT he manufactured a totally BOGUS claim that the US military used chemical weapons against its OWN personnel in Vietnam.....

          First off, only an idiot would go to a war zone and not carry a gun. Secondly, I don't see how this supposed provision of the Geneva Convention applies to a reporter. Afghanistan was not a signator to the Geneva Convention, and Rivera is a private citizen, not a member of the military.

              I am just sitting here trying to figure out what Geraldo did to poor Mitzi

                I hold Geraldo in the same high esteem as I hold Jane Fonda. All I can say is two well placed bullets.

                  Exactly, Klar. What has Geraldo done to earn respect? He can talk a big game, but in the end, he is just another sensationalist, tabloid journalist, bunched with the likes of Jerry Springer and Ricki (as big as a)Lake.

                    Could someone please explain to those of us that are woefully uninformed what is wrong with Geraldo?

                    Okay, just read the post above mine. Under that criteria I can see it. I was just wondering if there was something more to it or not

                      Sorry, I'm with Mitzi and Klar on this one....... this does nothing for me. It's just Geraldo posturing and trying to give himself a tough guy image.

                        Geraldo needs a gun, but doesn't think anyone else does.

                        As far as those reports of shots whistling past his head just barely missing him, C'mon Geraldo. You don't really think it was intentional do you?

                              What does everyone think Geraldo is packing? What would you carry in his situation?

                              My guess is he has some sort of semi-auto in .25. I would probably take my trusty Remington 870 with the deer barrel on it.
