Watch Geraldo Rivera’s Goodbye to Fox News After 23 Years: Roger Ailes Would Never Have Allowed This


Geraldo Rivera is leaving Fox News after 23 years. He says he was fired by “The Five,” so he decided to quit the network. He’s been treated shabbily by the current Fox regime. Roger Ailes is turning in his grave. He loved Geraldo.

But Greg Gutfeld can he blamed for this. He had no respect for Geraldo on “The Five,” and didn’t want a “liberal” on the show. Without Geraldo, “The Five” is reduced to gibberish from lunatics.

Rivera’s contract runs through 2025, so he’ll get paid out. And then he will not likely retire. He’s got a future in streaming, podcasts, etc, if he wants it age 80.
