Geraldo Rivera has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought against him by the William Morris Endeavor talent agency, which claims it is owed commission of more than $1 million for work done on Fox News since 2010. The civil suit brought by Wme in September in the New York Supreme Court said the agency had represented Rivera for more than 25 years, "as he rose from news correspondent to a household name." Wme claimed that it negotiated Rivera’s deal with Fox News, which ran through 2011, but that he stopped paying them a 10 percent commission at the

var brightcovevideoid = '2170769703001'; During a year where the news cycle was also dominated by "twerking" (the runner-up"), "KimYe," and "cronut," "selfie" has taken on all comers to become the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2013. A "selfie" is any picture taken of oneself by oneself, usually for posting on social media. Its first recorded usage was apparently in an Australian internet forum on September 13, 2002. "Sorry about the focus," the post - detailing a drunken injury - read, "it was a selfie." And just like that, history was made. Kim Kardashian had probably the most talked-about selfies this year, though »

The hosts of Fox & Friends grilled Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera on Friday morning over whether President Barack Obama ‘lied’ when he assured the American people that they would be able to keep their existing health insurance plans when the Affordable Care Act took effect. Rivera said he was uncomfortable saying the president “lied,” but it was clear that he had “misrepresented” the effects of the Aca. »

Anthology horror series have been a constant presence on television from the 1950s to today. With television’s inherent limitations on gore and adult content, writers have throughout the years come up with many creative ways to creep viewers out and perched firmly on the edge of their seat.
Today, we look at Creepy Tales Told on Television That Will Get You in The Halloween Mood…
5. Tales From The Crypt – Television Terror
Before Paranormal Activity and before The Blair Witch Project, HBO’s Tales From The Crypt was a trailblazer in faux reality horror with season 2′s “Television Terror.” Starring real life talkshow host Morton Downey Jr, whose show was a weird mix between Jerry Springer and Rush Limbaugh and featured some of the first on camera fistfights between guests. This tale is a pretty faithful adaption of The Haunt of Fear #17′s Television Terror originally published in the 1950′s »

It was recently reported that the producers of the forthcoming Friday the 13th film are considering making the newest entry in the series a found footage movie. As is customary with rumors of beloved film franchises, everyone promptly lost their shit and then forgot about it an hour later.
It’s completely understandable to be against this idea; after all, Friday the 13th is a slasher film, which, with one or two exceptions, doesn’t exactly lend itself to the found footage format.
Except that it does. Everything does. And given the prevalence of found footage thrillers involving some variation of stupid kids going into a mental asylum to investigate a local legend, approaching an iconic character in a different light doesn’t seem like that bad of an idea, at least to me. I’m a found footage apologist, and despite acknowledging that most films that utilize the format are absolutely terrible, »

Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera sat down with the hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday to discuss his exclusive interview with Iran’s Foreign Minister.

Geraldo Rivera is incensed over a lawsuit filed against him by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment over commissions. "Still steaming over money hungry LA agent I never met suing me over contract that Does Not Exist- they are bullies with no shame- they lose," the Fox News host and radio personality wrote on Twitter Wednesday. The host earlier tweeted: "Greedy rapacious agent I Have Never Met & who never negotiated anything for me is suing me-like Ari from Entourage-Justice will prevail." Wme Entertainment is suing Rivera and his personal corporation, Maravilla Productions Co., alleging that it had not

Nearly-nude selfie star Geraldo Rivera could lose his shirt again. William Morris Endeavor sued Geraldo Rivera on Tuesday, claiming that the Fox News “Geraldo At Large” host hasn’t paid commissions since 2010. Wme has repped Rivera since 1985, and negotiated his 2005 and 2009 Fox News contracts, according to the suit. Also read: Geraldo Rivera on NearlyNudieGate: Fox News Made Me Take Selfie Down (Video) Though Rivera was supposed to give 10 percent of his earnings through those contracts to Wme, the agency claims he stopped paying it in January 2010.

Gloria Estefan sang “I’ve Grown Accustomed To His Face” in honor of Gretchen Carlson, who got sheet-caked this morning on her last day at Fox & Friends. Throughout her final three hours on the early-morning program, Carlson thanked her hair and makeup people for making her look better than she felt at 3 Am each day, the show crew and producers, and her three alarm clocks for waking her up without fail — she noted she’d never overslept once in her run (She started on the show in 2006, one year after joining Fnc). Geraldo Rivera was among those who stopped by to wish her well. Carlson, who’s just begun on Twitter, asked Rivera for tweeting advice. “Just let me whip this off,” said he of the famous naked selfie, and pretended to begin removing his clothing. “Don’t do it after 1 Am, don’t do it after two tequila shots »

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Wladimir Klitschko have taken cyber-flirting to a whole new level ... exchanging topless selfies of each other ... and it's weird. It all started last week, when Klitschko took off his shirt and did his best Arnold flexing impression in front of a classic photo of the bodybuilding legend (see below). Wk tweeted the pic at Arnold and included a note -- "Trying to catch u since I'm 12."Arnold, obviously flattered by the pic tweeted back, »

Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera joined the hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday for a marathon segment where he argued with the hosts over why it was a bad idea, in his opinion, to intervene in the Syrian civil war. Rivera cited a number of reasons for his opinion, including the questionable anti-Bashar al-Assad rebels, the prospect of mission creep, the lack of public support, and the limited chances for achieving vague and ill-defined objectives. »

On the heels of his cancelled Duquesne University appearance, Geraldo Rivera took to Twitter on Monday to call censorship. The Fox News correspondent was uninvited on Friday to speak at an upcoming university panel about John F. Kennedy’s assassination in light of the 50th anniversary of the president’s death.
Duquesne's cancellation of my JFK panel appearance is pretentious censorship Do students agree with administration? Am I banned for life?—
Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) September 02, 2013
The reason for the “censorship”? The journalist’s lack of self-censorship. Rivera tweeted a racy photo of himself standing half-naked in front of a mirror with nothing but a low-hanging towel around his waist. Duquesne spokeswoman Bridget Fare told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette his actions contradicted the Catholic school’s values.
Just heard Duquesne Univ cancelled my appearance at JFK assassination panel because of 'selfie'. Fact I first aired Zapruder film less impt.—

On Friday, Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera was asked to dig into a story out of Seattle in which an 88-year-old World War II veteran was beaten to death by two African-American teenagers. Rivera said that the “false narrative” of racism in the case of George Zimmerman’s killing of Trayvon Martin has given conservatives a license to see racism where it may not exist but it is hard to blame them for it. »

Bill O'Reilly brought Geraldo Rivera on The O'Reilly Factor Thursday night to help him examine what caused three Oklahoma teens to allegedly murder Australian Chris Lane. "The collapse of the family is leading to horror all over this country," O'Reilly said. "Each one of these kids have dysfunctional families, it's a chaotic situation, and they act out by killing this poor 22-year-old guy." »

Just two weeks ago, Fox News' Geraldo Rivera expressed shock that news reports failed to identify the race of three black suspects in the beating of a white teenager, although he failed to explain why their race was important, or why he didn't just look up two inches to see the photograph featured in the report that he read. Imagine how shocked Geraldo will be when he learns that Fox And Friends similarly failed to identify the race of Michael Brandon Hill, the white male who opened fire in a predominantly black elementary school in Decatur, Georgia on Tuesday. »

On Thursday night's The O'Reilly Factor, substitute host Laura Ingraham and Geraldo Rivera chewed over some "new" details in the July 9 assault on a 13 year-old aboard a Florida school bus, and although they never really explained what the "new details" were, Geraldo explained that the three assailants' blackness was a new detail to him, and a very important one. He posited a "double standard" between this story and the killing of Trayvon Martin, and he and Ingraham concluded that "we (the media) should have reported who they (the suspects) were," and "faster." »

Geraldo Rivera joined Laura Ingraham on The O'Reilly Factor to tackle a recently discovered video of three black teenagers beating up a white teen on a bus. Rivera and Ingraham agreed the fact this incident occurred weeks ago and the media didn't pick it up at the time was a damning contrast with how much the press played up the Trayvon Martin case. Rivera acknowledged the media has a "wretched double standard" when it comes to race and crime in the United States. »

“I’m not reacting to CNN and MSNBC,” said Ailes, indicating he was aware that CNN did some rescheduling with Anderson Cooper earlier in the week but not motivated by it.
“My near-term plans are to put my competitors out of business completely,” added Ailes in a Q&A at parent company 21st Century Fox’s “investor day” with Neil Cavuto.
His rationale for the unspecified shifts: “One of my jobs is to get the best audience flow between shows and that’s one of the reason I’m making a few changes right now,” he said.

"I am intrigued!" Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron tells us that just like the fans, he's waiting with bated breath to find out who'll be a part of the new season 17 cast, set to be announced Sept. 4. "Some of the casting rumors are true," Bergeron tells E! News, "and some of them are not true at all. Some of them might reflect contract negotiations that are going in one direction or another. But nothing is final yet." While sources confirm to E! News that Paula Deen and Geraldo Rivera both have been approached and have passed on the opportunity, we are also told that producers are looking for a "younger and sexier cast" to appeal to a younger demo. And that »
"The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her," a source close to the former Foot Network star told the magazine.
Deen made headlines in June for admitting to using a racial slur while taping a deposition. Since then, she's lost a variety of sponsors and been dropped by the Food Network. In late June, rumors about Deen appearing on "Dancing" for redemption started to kick into high gear.
Deen's not the only star to turn down "DWTS." Geraldo Rivera, who recently made headlines with a risque photo, said he's been offered a spot on the series. However, he won't be "Dancing."
Honored to be asked to do DWTS. It's a great show, enduring & energetic. Sorry Deena but can't for lots of reasons including a bad foot Thx
