Calling All Bloggers! Slime Alert!

It’s no secret that sniveling amnesty thug Geraldo Rivera is a cheap demagogue, but now he’s reached a new low. In a recent Boston Globe profile, Rivera simply can’t control his hatred of the “vile” Michelle Malkin (pot, meet kettle): “It’s good she’s in DC and I’m in New York. I’d spit on her if I saw her.”

It’s kinda amusing to see Geraldo reduced to such childishness because
he can’t handle someone who stands up to him, but there’s nothing funny about the fact that Bill O’Reilly & Sean Hannity give tacit legitimacy to this pig by treating him like a friend on their TV shows. Both pundits are on record against recklessness & vitriol in the public discourse, and both consider Michelle a friend, so which one of them is going to stand up for her next time Rivera’s on their show? Which one is going to tell Rivera to his face that he’s crossed one line of decency too many? Is Fox News Channel going to put up with one of their personalities publicly expressing desires to spit on women?

Fellow bloggers (and all observers of conscience), let’s find out.
Here are the email addresses for Fox News and their personalities. Let FNC know you think Geraldo reflects horribly on the channel, and ask O’Reilly & Hannity if they intend to do the right thing. You never know what might happen if enough people let their voices be heard.
UPDATE: Upon challenge from O’Reilly, Geraldo has apologized. I’m glad to see it, but Geraldo still has a lot of vicious immigration-related hyperbole to answer for before he ought to be taken seriously again. And where’s Hannity?
