Why is this yahoo still gainfully employed?

    Okay, from what I understand, once upon a time Geraldo Rivera actually was considered to be a dogged reporter with a fair amount of credibility and had the respect of his peers and of the American public. And then Capone's vault literally blew up in his face.

    But after watching this pathetic display, during which IMO he is the one that is made to look like a complete moron, I can't for the life of me figure out how he keeps getting paid. And what's worst, as you watch the setup to the interview during which he says, "It wasn't pretty," you are expecting his subject to go off and make a fool of himself, instead of it being the other way around. Is he that full of himself and that oblivious to really believe some of the shit he flings?

    (Yes, that is for the most part a rhetorical question).

    I don't know what the proper cooling off time is before I note that it should be "gainfully."

    Oops.

    He gets paid because people watch him, which brings in advertisers.

    Not sure who really looks sketchier in that situation.

    It was uncomfortable to watch in any case.

    The guy looks like a total loser. But he handled himself very, very well. I don't know if he is a crackhead or if he beats women like they are implying but he handled himself well.

    Oops. Fixed. Had a 5-year-old distracting me and didn't go back and look at the title the first time.

    Now we can get back to the topic at hand.

    The end of that video was absolutely heartbreaking.
