VIDEO: "I will never forgive Tucker Carlson for what he did about January 6th conspiracy theories" - Geraldo Rivera says on The View

Geraldo Rivera: “ Just as I would never vote for Donald Trump, I will never forgive Tucker for what he did about January 6th."

Geraldo Rivera went scorched-earth on former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and the network during a Thursday appearance on ABC’s “The View.”

Rivera spent 23 years at Fox News, but recently left after being ousted from “The Five.”

The TV veteran has strong feelings about his former co-workers and the network. He said his “ideology does not fit Fox” and that he “should have left” the network back in 2011.

While Rivera praised Carlson’s talents as a writer and on-screen talent, he condemned Carlson’s “drift” into “this murky area, this swampy area” of these “funky kind of conspiracies.”

“I don’t like to be unkind, but what he did, just as I will never vote for Donald Trump, I will never forgive Tucker about January 6th,” Rivera said.

Rivera said that the network’s recent multi-million-dollar legal settlements has led to an “atmosphere of fear” at the network, and that the financial impact will hit both stockholders and, through possible layoffs, lower-level news staff. “The high-profile journalists [will be] fine,” he said.

In a wide-ranging interview, Rivera described the atmosphere at Fox News in the wake of the Dominion lawsuit settlement as one of “fear,” indicated that he supported the decision by Ray Epps to file a defamation lawsuit against the network, said that Donald Trump “stabbed the Constitution of the United States in the back” by encouraging the Jan. 6th attack, and that he would devote whatever is left of his journalism career to opposing a Donald Trump re-election. He also said he will “never forgive” Tucker Carlson for spreading misinformation about the Jan. 6th riots.

Speaking of Carlson, Rivera was asked by The View co-host Sara Haines if Carlson’s influence is “waning” since he was fired from Fox News and moved to Twitter. “I hope so,” Rivera responded, adding that while Twitter is “a fine outlet,” compared to the platform of Fox News it amounts to “screaming into the wilderness.”


Rivera also declared he will “never forgive” Carlson for peddling numerous conspiracy theories about the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

“I don’t like to be unkind, but what he did, just as I would never vote for Donald Trump, I will never forgive Tucker for what he did about January 6th,” Rivera told the panelists.

Fox News ousted Carlson in April, and he has since tried to stay relevant by hosting shows on Twitter.

Rivera isn’t sure how that will go for his former co-worker.
