    Geraldo and Shep Smith are definitely NOT right-wing.

    And this stupid "fake news", "Faux News" crap is soooooo 2002. Get a new line....perhaps a more intelligent one?

    “I believe that George Zimmerman, the overzealous neighborhood watch captain, should be investigated to the fullest extent of the law, and if he is criminally liable he should be prosecuted. But I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies,” Rivera said.

    “I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.”


    He added: "You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gangsta, you’re going to be a gangsta-wannabe, well people are going to perceive you as a menace."



    This is in context. He is right, it is the unfortunate reality. Geraldo was an idiot for blaming the hoodie for his death, but if a certain element, say a non racist skinhead, is seen running down the street, He may be percieved as a racist, even though he may be the furthest thing from it.


    A person with a leather jacket with three patches, and a big harley, is also going to be percieved a certain way, even though he may really be a lawyer....


    It's reality, it's not the "reason" for his death. But the perception angle is exactly right.

    I find this view simplistic in it's ignorance, and sad in it's prejudice. Geraldo, as I have proven to you at least once is a left-center-left individual, he is the typical left wing new yorker.

    what do his political views have to do with anything?

    his statement was stupid, ignorant, and he should be ashamed of himself. there's no point in trying to tie him to a certain political group.

    You should ask Top Cat, as he claimed he was a right winger.

    No it isn't. It's stupid. Just like people calling MSNBC "MSLSD" or CNN "Communist News Network". It only makes you look unintelligent.

    Not a very good analogy, because Fox News isn't about news - it's about a right wing propaganda organization masquerading as a news organizaton. Which is why Faux News or Fake News are so deliciously appropriate. The fact that the head of Faux News - Roger Ailes - is a former high operative in the Republican Party and gives the organization its marching orders is merely one factor. The content of their programming is the other.
