Geraldo Rivera-Literally Incredible or Uncredible?

Just can't look or listen to this guy without being reminded of the time when he was covering the Mideast War and was giving a report from a real "danger zone." You could hear gunshots and explosions in the background and he even ducked a couple of times. But a funny thing happened on the way to my living room.

They forgot to turn off the camera and as the camera pulled back the audience could see that Geraldo was standing on a bluff high above and quite a distance from the road where the action was taking place.

Since that time I have put absolutely no credibility in anything he has reported on whether it was a war story or as is the case now, gossip about Anna Nicole. He just sounds like a little old lady hanging on the garden fence swapping gossip with his next door neighbor. And he is usually more than a little vindictive.

Along with his many marriages and stabs at different religions, he's a real piece of work. Perhaps he's just shopping around, but I hope he finds a home soon. Thank goodness we have a forgiving God--we all need that but some of us need it more than others.

It's just that I have a real problem with folks like commentators acting like journalists and politicians who have the opportunity to influence millions of people and lead by bad example. I am reminded of the passage that says something like "it is better to be cast into the millpond with a stone around one's neck than to cause scandal to the least of the children." As they say, to whom much has been given, much is expected.

See you tomorrow--God bless......
