Can you believe this? Fox News has hired Geraldo Rivera to be one of its 'war correspondents' in Afghanistan! I hope Drudge is kidding about this story! See: [url]http://www.drudgereport.com/flashrr.htm[/url] GERALDO JUMPS TO FOX NEWS AS WAR CORRESPONDENT, FOLDS CNBC'CAST FOX News Channel signed Geraldo Rivera to be a war correspondent, announced Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News on Thursday. Rivera folds his CNBC'cast. MORE In making the announcement, Ailes said, "Geraldo's years of experience as an anchor and hard-hitting investigative reporter will enhance FOX News' international coverage of the war on terrorism. He will put his unique talent to work for us in the hot spots of the world. We are delighted he is joining FOX News." Rivera's last appearance on CNBC will be November 16th. On November 19th, he will be immediately dispatched to the Afghanistan region to join Steve Harrigan, Amy Kellogg and other FOX News correspondents in the area to provide live reports for FNC. "I'm a reporter," says Rivera, "and America's fight against terror is the biggest story of our times. And as much as I loved my CNBC program, I can't stay anchored to that desk any longer. So it is my honor to rejoin Roger Ailes, and become part of the excellent team he has established at Fox News Channel. I hope to be able to report all aspects of our nation's do or die fight against terror." Rivera is a veteran foreign correspondent, who has been on the frontlines in virtually every conflict since 1973.

His vast war experience began with the violent coup in Chile and the Yom Kippur War to the civil wars in Guatemala, the Philippines and Nicaragua to the ethnic conflicts in Lebanon (1980-83) and Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo (1998-1999). This year, he went to Colombia to cover the country's civil war. Developing... Eric The(RememberTheFaked'MachineGunFire'InBeirut?­)Hun[>]:)]

I hope he gits hit by a "stray" cluster bomb. What's he going to do, spend hours building up hype about infiltrating a taliban stronghold or something, only to find it completely empty? [;)]

Man, you guys crack me up. When I'm flipping channels, if I come across him, I immediately keep flipping. I haven't been able to take him seriously since he had his Jerry Springer-esque "talk" show back in the 80's. Besides, he seems unable to confine his biases to himself as a "journalist." [(:|)]

I still remember that con job he pulled on "The secret safe of Al Capone". He got bunch of us (lots of viewers) draw to the TV for nothing.... The safe was empty.

I just finished reading this in my paper this morning and e-mailed my disappointment to Fox News

I Remember how pissed he got when the Metzger called him Jerry Rivers> Right after that he gave Roy Innis the green light to choke him.
