Watch: Geraldo Rivera Gets Very Personal During His Final Hours on Fox News

Published on

A former Fox News personality defended racial discrimination in college admissions as his last act on the network.

Geraldo Rivera defended affirmative action during his final appearance on Fox & Friends as an employee of Fox News on Friday.

Thursday’s Supreme Court judgment that the use of affirmative action in college admissions is unconstitutional prompted Rivera’s remarks.

The longstanding center-left opponent of Fox’s broadcast content defended the practice by referencing his own personal history.

“I was a product of affirmative action over half a century ago,” Rivera stated.

In the early 1970s, Rivera cited an effort by the Ford Foundation and Columbia University’s journalism school to diversify New York’s news media.

The media personality with a tendency to the left described his time spent representing a Puerto Rican activist organization, which led to his selection as a candidate for the program.

“So I got discovered that way, and they drafted me for the Columbia program, and the rest is history.”

Rivera clarified in a Thursday video recorded from a motorized watercraft that he had left Fox News.

“I’ve been fired from The Five, and as a result of that I quit Fox,” Rivera revealed.

Rivera’s tenuous relationship with fellow personality Greg Gutfeld is thought to have spurred his exit from the network. CONTINUE READING…
