I can't see why anyone would think it's Geraldo who needs to apologize... it's clear that they do since they were breaking the law.


Are you really that ignorant?

For the sake of yourself and those you surround yourself with, I pray to God you are not.

You need to read that one piece of paper, what was it's name again? Oh yeah, THE CONSTITUTION. Maybe you aren't aware of this, but the CONSTITUTION comes before all law, legally or illegally imposed. In that paper, it tells of United States citizens' RIGHT TO PROTEST.

You are just as bad as this traitor.

Okay, Geraldo needs to be fired NOW.

Calling a group of protestors "communists" and saying that they are all into gay sex is NOT responsible journalism.


Fortunately for Geraldo, we know that FOX doesn't set as high of standards for their "journalists" as, say, NBC set for shock-jock Don Imus.

Its great to hear you had the support of the NYPD! Im know those guys lost alot of friends, firemen too! And they didnt get treated the way they should have... Now they want them to come to their aid agin.. And the way I see it half the NYPD should put down their sticks, and pick up a sign.. Then thats when it will get interesting



If it wasn't for the NYPD escort, the protestors would have all gotten killed. On the way to the Fox News building, there was a Celtic Lodge emptying out of a ballroom who were guarded by the Celtic national guard. They had their kilts and their weapons as well and proceeded towards the protestors with angry look son their faces. They saw the NYPD escort and just stopped and went back.

One woman said my son was killed! How can you say our own gov't was involved? She then burst into tears in the middle of the street and spit on one of the protestors. They all then started to chant ASS####S over and over at the protestors, and clearly looked like they were in denial and anger immediately beset them. I think it was the families of all the firefighters who were killed on 911 getting together and Alex knew right away when to pass by, just as it was emptying out.

But the NYPD really let them use the power of Freedom of Speech and even though they blocked traffic and all, they let them do their thing.

geraldo, calling 9-11 truthers gay is pretty low, being that by the standards of the creators of Southpark.."Everyones a little gay". Does that mean geraldo is gay? we will never know.

But will you? That's the question. WE as U.S. citizens need to rise up against the government and media's obvious misinformation of the truth, this country is no longer representative of the founding father's vision, we owe it to all who have died in vain to start doing something about it. I am so damn angry right now, all of this is seriously pissing me off.

There are several things that really tick me off about this story, I will start with the least and work my way up.

#1. Geraldo is an idiot. Let's forget the hate speech and the Imus comparisons for just a moment. His remarks and comments are something I would expect to hear from a Freshman in High School. "Your gay" "You ugly" - are you serious? Lets keep in mind that Geraldo was born in Jan of 1943. The guy is 64 years old! He is FAR from being a kid, yet all he can do is throw out sophomoric remarks to 9/11 protesters. I expect better from a 64 year old man, and I would expect MUCH more from a professional reporter. Which brings me to ....

#2. As a professional reporter it is your job to report the news. Not spin it, not offer your opinion, but to report it and let others form their own opinion based on the facts. That is your job and that is what you get paid to do. So when you have protesters standing behind you, you should REPORT IT. Instead he called them "Anarchist". There is a VERY large difference between an Anarchist and a Protester. I think it would be fair to say that not every Protester out there tonight believes there should be no government at all. If I was in NY I would have been out there myself, and I do not believe we should have no government, just a government of the people, by the people and FOR THE PEOPLE!

#3. I am equally disturbed that reports suggest that Alex Jones was singled out and arrested. Why not arrest all 400 + people? I realize more arrest happened as the night progressed, but not everyone was. So who decides who gets arrested and who doesn't?

#4. This is my biggest problem with what happened. No one out there tonight should have been arrested. Bullhorn and chanting or not.... what you witnessed tonight is what is called a "Peaceful Assembly". To do so is not a privilege, but a right as provided to you by the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

I present to you, YOUR First Amendment RIGHT.....

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Thanks for the heads up.. Im so pissed I cant sleep.. dont have to work in the morning, so will watch it.. When I tuned in, I didnt see anyone behind him, all but a few people, no signs, not what I saw on the youtube videos..


You think they will edit, and pull the wool over the eyes who didnt get this first hand like us?

From what I saw, they really had Gerlado flustered to no end.. I mean I think he was shakin in this boots.. He should have done some real reporting!! I agree with the other posters here about how he should have gone about this!!!
Great post section8citizen!!!

Edit..
This OBL Tape BS is just another way to try to sell us a war with Iran..
They are trying to set up us, saying the OBL tape might have code that gives the go to sleeper cells, or what not.. come on now.. To many people are awake, but they always have an ace up their sleeve..

hahah get this. after that show, Geraldo gets up to talk to Eddie Griffin about how offensive One line comments... HOW Ironic!!!! LOL

That Geraldo didnt agree with him..

Okay TV going off now.. thats about as much Fox as I can stomach..

Geraldo is a moron anyway, he's not an asset to Fox and I really don't know why anyone cares either way what he has to say. He supports open borders and he gets ticked off when anyone draws attention to crimes committed by illegals. His racial sensitivities are his achille's heel, he's seriously a joke of a reporter and doesn't deserve half the respect he gets.

Actually, Geraldo did break the law.

It's called: LIBEL.

And as a "professional" journalist, it is a law he should be most familiar with. Making derogatory and/or defamatory comments, without proof that such comments are factual, is a very serious civil offense. Especially in the media, where the damage such comments might engender has the potential to be far-reaching.

If anyone in that group cares to persue the issue, Geraldo, and Fox News itself (deep pockets there!), might find themselves in some very hot litiginous water.

And then, of course, there is FCC.

I assume a complaint, along with a copy of Mr. Rivera's uncensored characterizations, will be forwarded immediately to the proper authorities at the FCC.

You can't libel an amorphous group of people like this. That claim is ridiculous. Geraldo was exercising his first amendment rights, while these people where breaking the law by trespassing on private property.

Nothing Geraldo said violates FCC regulations either. In fact the FCC doesn't have any power to regulate cable television.

It's amazing how ignorant of the law some people are.

Amorphous?

Or do you mean anonymous?

Read a dictionary.

Either way, at least One of those people (Alex Jones) was identified as being part of that "amorphous group".

Furthermore, if any of the other protesters in that group were shown on air to the extent that they could be identified, the charge sticks. Read the law.

By the way,
The law is whatever the jury says it is...like it or not.

I don't know what law you're talking about. It seems to me you want me to prove that there is no law that Geraldo broke, which isn't the way it works.

If you want to claim what he said was illegal, then you need to provide information about the law you think he broke.

Watching the replay, it looks like the protesters show up 32 minutes into the show. MrJones is arrested about 15 minutes after that

I would love to know where this "Private Property" is that you are referring to. From every shot I have seen (and I am still watching it) the protesters are standing on the sidewalks and the street which is considered PUBLIC property. Private Property actually starts at the door.

No it doesn't it stops at the property line. The area Geraldo was in is a plaza that is part of the 1211 Avenue of the Americas building property.
