I'd point out that no one learned anything from this segment, but that's never the point, is it?

Quote:Geraldo Rivera, a contributor-at-large with a tenure approaching 20 years at the network, lost his temper when podcaster, Fox News contributor, and frequent "Hannity" guest Dan Bongino told him to "take a Valium" and "stop pretending to be a cop."

"There's a big difference between reporting on a baseball game and playing it, Geraldo. You never wore a badge, period," Bongino said after Rivera talked about Black Americans being three times more likely than whites to be killed in an encounter with police.

"Not interested in your reporting on it, because reporters deal with facts, and you brought the race card into it the other night when we had this debate, despite having no facts to back that up, and when I brought up the facts that there is no systemic racism-" Bongino continued before Rivera cut him off.

.....

"If there was a plague of police officers hunting Black men down at night, then I don't understand, how is that happening?" Bongino said as Rivera grew increasingly irritated. "Where is this massive body count?"

As the commercial music began jingling and crosstalk intensified, Bongino told Rivera "you just wanna see the country burn."

.....

"I wanna see the country burn?" Rivera yelled. "You son of a b----! I wanna see the country burn? You punk! You're nothing but a punk. You're a punk, Bongino. You're a punk."

"You wouldn't tell me that to my face," Bongino replied.

"Oh yeah?" Rivera said as Hannity cut to commercial. "Let's see."
I'm glad they all hate each other, too.
I'm agreeing with Geraldo. Something is terribly terribly wrong..
"You're a punk!"

"Why don't you say that to my face?"

"Maybe I will!"

This isn't even *good* trash TV. This is playground shit.
I thought Geraldo was a Trumper and a conservative and all that. I'm kinda surprised at his opinions about the police. Is he a light conservative? Did he change?
Geraldo's a tabloid sleazoid. He's whatever he thinks will get ratings.
They try to get away with this shit all the time:

Quote:SEAN HANNITY (HOST): We are awaiting the release this hour of Chicago Police bodycam footage that captured the fatal police shooting of a young 13 year old man by the name of Adam Toledo. And if social media is any indication, there's a lot of chatter today about possible unrest. I hope it doesn't happen but with Chicago's track record, every weekend -- you know, I guess, you'd have to go with the odds, considering there are dozens and dozens of shootings and killings every weekend in Chicago -- that this might not be particularly good.

He's been changing for awhile.  This is not the first time he's gotten into it with Fox.

Aww was wondering when we'd return to "but wut about Black on Black crime?!!"
Geraldo is a fucking windsock...he'll go where the $$$ winds blow.
If he can feed his ego by playing contrarian on Fox, he'll do it.
He's done shit like this before.
I mean, Geraldo doesn't have to be a full ACAB die-hard to be irritated when Bongino is bleating about "where is the body count?" The entire segment wouldn't exist if the body count wasn't everywhere and rising, dipshit.
Gutfeld gets worse every year:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/watch-greg-g...ews-hosts/

Quote:What was it Gutfeld said that elicited an “oh my God” from Dana Perino, “My goodness” from Juan Williams, and polite but stern push back from Judge Jeanine Pirro? Gutfeld expressed happiness that Chauvin was found guilty even if he wasn’t guilty because that kept people from looting.

“I’m glad that he was found guilty on all charges, even if he might not be guilty of all charges, I am glad that he is guilty of all charges because I want a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames,” Gutfeld said.

After groans could be heard, Gutfeld got notably defensive, adding, “I’m at least being honest. My neighborhood was looted. I don’t ever want to go through that again.”

.....

Taking a tone that an impatient parent might use with a petulant toddler, Pirro said “now, look Greg” before explaining to her Fox News co-host “We do not sacrifice individuals for the sake of how people feel.”
It takes some doing to be the most cretinous asshole on a Fox show.

Though I'm sure Tucker's going to go to all-new heights of gross-as-fuck race-baiting tonight.
"We do not sacrifice individuals for the sake of how people feel.”

So you admit it, you're against the death penalty?
"Your justice."

Quote:Ben Shapiro and Tomi Lahren being completely ubable to hide their disdain for Black people for even 15 minutes after a cop is convicted of killing one of us is extremely on brand for the white supremacist movements they fuel and profit from.

Oh do shut the fuck up, Fashy Spice.
She sounds... disappointed.

It reminds me of some dumb thing our joke of a last president said when discussing the civil unrest in the '60s. I forget the exact quote but it ended with "when were great."

At any rate, these fashies love injustice and the violence that follows. They want the country to tear itself apart, not because they love it, but because they just want to see others in pain.
Oooooh “your justice”

Aryan Barbie really wants to say “that word.”
"You're?"
Tucker Carlson cut off a tough, Mario-looking corrections officer who described Chauvin as using "excessive force," ending with a disturbing laugh that makes it seem like he's switched from Brand X:

That's one of the weirdest things I've ever seen.

This guy gets it:

Quote:The way in which Carlson short-circuits, laughs manically, and cuts off a guest who doesn't follow the party line on Chauvin (don't talk about what he did, but how unfairly he has been treated) is pretty telling.

His reaction was that of a Batman villain.  Dear Lord.  And I am an atheist.
Seems like Carlson's mind is elsewhere too:

Quote:Certainly sounds like Tucker is trying to get ahead of an embarrassing story here.

Oh man, some of the things people wrote in my yearbook. I could end careers.
My favorite part of that weird Tucker yearbook clip is his claim that "this is a news show", a claim that Fox News has had to walk back multiple times in federal court.
Let's hope Dominion's lawyers were taking careful note.
To be fair, I don't think Tucker even knows what news is.
It might be this: Tucker listed himself as part of the "Dan White Society" (named after the guy who assassinated Harvey Milk) in his yearbook.

Classy.
Wow, he tried to smile for the first time in his miserable life, and that was the best he could do?

It would seem that TC's embraced being a racist asshole as far back as college.

TC's excuse will be that it was done ironically/sarcastically...but like most right-wing assholes they are incapable of being ironic.
The weird thing about this yearbook revelation is that we already know he's a hateful scumbag. He goes on TV every night to confirm this. It's not like he was once a good dude who turned evil. No, he's a product of the elite class that's all a bunch of hateful scumbags.

This is one of those weird liberal tics where they need to be constantly reminded of things they already know.

Oh I mean...of course he probably did it ironically--doesn't change the fact that TC is a racist scumbbag.  The fact that so many people buy into this idea that someone Tucker Carlson represents "them" rather than simply poor whites as a way to stuff his own pockets is really fucking something.
Wow, he still had the stupid fucking bowtie.
Wow, even then he had no idea how to move his face like an actual human.
