40 Years of Geraldo - GERALDO RIVERA: 50 Highs and Lows From 40 Years In News: "1. Only person ever to appear on the covers of both Newsweek and Playgirl.

2. Multi-winner, 'America’s Best Mustache'

3. Like Oprah, Elvis, Cher and Lassie, one of America’s few one-name celebrities.

4. More on-air fights than most professional middle-weights (tape available).

5. Debuts Eyewitness News; first assignment: a brief interview with losing Democratic candidate for state attorney general. Sound bite airs, but hand holding mike is only body part that appears; mother Lillian Friedman Rivera recognizes Jewish star tattoo on son’s left-hand; proudly proclaims he has 'made it.' Parents forgive leaving legal profession; embrace career in public life; (September 7, 1970 to present)"

Plus 45 more.

The man's a joke as far as I'm concerned.

Working for Fox News was the final nail in that coffin.

Of course he'll never live down Al Capone's tomb.

Kurt Vonnegut hated him (he was Rivera's father-in-law for about four years). If Vonnegut hated him, that alone is reason enough to loathe him
