F&F Mutes Geraldo

Did Fox & Friends use the five-second delay to censor Geraldo Rivera today? Known for his salty tongue, Geraldo has previously used expletives including “dumbas*,” “tu*d,” “bast**d,” and “pr*ck” on the program. This morning, F&F producers seemed more than ready for him.

F&F had Geraldo in for a segment entitled “Hispanics in America,” which showcased his new book, The New Progression: How Hispanics Will Lead America to a New Era of Prosperity. When Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy promoted his upcoming appearance before a commercial break, Geraldo began his usual swagger from the Green Room toward the set. As he did, he appeared to randily remark, “I noticed Gretchen [Carlson] is tan: she looks like a [unknown adjective fully muted] Latina.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

What did Geraldo say? Unfortunately, F&F producers appeared to censor it much too well for the author to tell. However, the curious reader with a DVR may see if he or she can.*

*Fox & Friends (09/16/09) – @7:42 a.m. ET
