An article from the Sagamore Online about Geraldo Rivera's unethical reporting practices.

While I agree that Mr. Rivera should not have done anything to give specifics about the location of troops I do take issue with this critique:

"Indeed, it was not the content of Rivera's reporting, but his questionable journalistic methods that gained the most attention with regards to his coverage in Afghanistan. He carried a gun for the duration of his stay in the occupied country. Geraldo's response to criticism of his carrying a firearm? He told Fox News in an interview: 'It's been blown way out of proportion. It makes me sound like a tabloid talk show host goes to war'."

I would think that being in the middle of a war zone would be an acceptable justification for being armed even to the most die-hard liberals.
