1 He ruined Laurie Dhue's career when she left Fox News to be a part of his awful talk show. -- Submitted By: (bipinbarr) on August 21, 2014, 3:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Robert, I left grad school to take an offered job at a midsized newspaper, thus sidetracking my dream to become Soggy the Courageous War Reporter. I'd have fancied hitching up with a wire service rather than a TV news network, being at the time a better writer than speaker, but at any rate life intervened as it always does and sent me in a different direction. And then five or six years later I switched careers entirely. As for any sense I might have had back then of Geraldo's imperfections, they would not have affected my view of him, and in fact my understanding was that a good foreign correspondent was supposed to be a hard-drinking horndog with a bit of an attitude who marched to his own drum and rubbed lots of folks the wrong way. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 10, 2011, 2:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Soggy, Oh, *I* knew his ego eclipsed the sun WAY back at Al Capone's Vault! As for him being 'inspiration'? Look at this way, perhaps subconsciously you all knew he was awful beneath all the pomposity and hype but weren't ready to openly admit it even to yourselves. However; you all were inspired to try to become journalists because deep inside you all knew you could be BETTER and have higher standards of conduct and ethics [ virtually anyone can].No, I'm not dissing you or other former fans of his because unfortunately the shrill promo machinary behind him at his height made it rather unpleasant to admit even the slightest criticism of his work at that time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 1:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Soggy, you were a journalist? Which news station? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 9, 2011, 12:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 A number of young people (including yours truly) became journalists in the 1970s because they thought Geraldo - who for much of that decade was a roving reporter (and occasional war correspondent) for ABC - was dashing and glamorous. Little did we know his ego would one day eclipse the sun and he would eventually become a punchline. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 9, 2011, 2:49 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I remember Al Capone's Vault (yeah, I wasted a few hours of my life watching the fool thing) and I recall how rather highhanded Geraldo was to the excavators - blowing air horns while they were digging so the jackhammers wouldn't be heard over his own whiny drone. In the end when he found nothing, they started surrounding him looking really . . .peeved and I was hoping we'd see the excavators invite him out to the nearest parking lot and that that would be the last we'd EVER hear from him on the air. Alas, there seemed to be a market for his whiny drone so he's kept returning on the air like a bad penny. I've never been able to stand him and believe he boned from Day One. What was really bad was the way he'd act all Mr. Hypersensative to his often fragile,shattered talk show subjects (whose woes he eagerly had them spill for a nationwide audience) yet it's public record that he wasn't always totally honorable to his spouses. Even if one doesn't care about the adultery, the shameless hypocrisy of him acting as though he was Mr. Hypersensative on the air while behaving somewhat differently off air was quite stomach churning. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 2:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Poor Geraldo has boned a few fish in his days. Everyone remembers the Al Capone vault episode but I also remember him getting naked and doing interviews in a nudist resort. His worst offense is going down to where hurricanes make landfall and doing interviews on the beach while hugging a palm tree. Then he has the nerve to lecture people about not taking these hurricanes seriously. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on September 11, 2009, 8:03 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
