People with more than half a brain may not know that Fox News Channel’s 2nd most embarrassing star, Geraldo Rivera, has a relatively new syndicated show called Geraldo at Large. Today I learned that Geraldo is about to “O.J.” the Pellicano case. As anyone familiar with Geraldo’s past will recall, he rode his hyperventilated O.J. case coverage to hell and back. Oh joy, now he’s going to make a similar circus of the Pellicano stuff. I know this because one of his producers today asked me to become a show regular on what he said would be the once- or twice-weekly panel discussions about the developments and details of the ongoing Hollywood wiretapping scandal.
So what was my response? I told the producer I’d rather have someone split open my head than be part of Geraldo’s show.
