“What she did was terrible. What she said was just indefensible,” Rivera said about Ingraham’s tweet and comments about Parkland survivor David Hogg, who called for the boycott.
Rivera also had some choice words about advertiser boycotts, calling them “anti-democratic, a threat to the First Amendment” and “censorship of the worst kind.”
A Fox News spokesperson responded: “Geraldo is out of the loop on this issue and speaks for no one but himself.”
Rivera explained on twitter, saying the “media” missed his point:
Media missed my point, while I disagree with Laura Ingraham @IngrahamAngle on this issue, I’m glad she apologized & I’m even happier that she will be back on Monday. These political boycotts need to stop. They are an attack on the 1st Amendment & an infringement of free speech.
