“One of my favorite things in my 16 years of being at Fox News is when bombs drop on bad guys,” said Geraldo Rivera after the video played.
It was almost like Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter C.J. Chivers predicted in a tweet yesterday: “Stand by for certain news voices to to pound out hype songs and war-toy cheers.”
