Geraldo Rivera drew a major backlash Friday after claiming that Trayvon Martin's hoodie is to blame for his death and urging black and Latino parents to tell their kids to dress differently.
In an interview with Fox & Friends, Rivera, a Fox News commentator, said Martin made himself a target by wearing a hoodie that fateful Feb. 26 night. Martin, a black, unarmed 17-year-old, was walking home from a 7-11 when George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, shot and killed him.

Glenn Beck bid adieu to Fox News on Thursday, as the controversial host prepares to launch his own network. However, there were no tears from Beck, who instead promised his fans he would help fix the country and even poked fun at his own persona, according to The Associated Press.
"I'm the only host who is supposedly the most dangerous person in America because of my influence and the least influential person in America because my ratings...
I now have a new favorite TV character this season, and its of the four-legged variety. Of course Im talking about Digby, the stalwart and silent and absolutely gorgeous canine companion of Pushing Daisies life-affirming hero, Ned. This golden retriever was the first dead object (run down on a highway) to be revived by Ned as a child, and their attachment was one of the first and most persistent nitpicky complaints I fielded from the shows naysayers. "How could Ned and Digby not have touched at least once over the years?" they wondered. A little boy and a faithful dog, how is it possible they restrained themselves from the heavy petting that comes so naturally in youth? My answer (beyond the obvious explanation that Pushing Daisies is a fantasy and we should just sit back and respect the rules weve been presented): Digby understands whats going on. He knows that to be touched by Ned is to be sent to doggie heaven. He doesnt need to be told. ...
Tonight's episode was definitely one of my favorites. I loved being able to see what Charlie, Alan and Jake might look like in 2036. I also found it funny that a box of Milk Duds at the movie theater will cost us $25 in the future. Somehow, I think that estimate may not be far off, but let's meet back here in 29 years and see, shall we? Getting back to the present day, we find Alan is still being as frugal as ever. His ability to dodge a bill is almost an art form. In the first scene alone, Alan managed to score a free night at the movies for him and Jake. That night ended up costing Charlie over 80 bucks, but as we soon learned, that's the last time Charlie was going to let Alan use his excuses to bail on a bill. Fast-forward to the night of Charlie and Alan's double date. Things seemed to be going really well, and Alan's date even suggested that after dinner they should "go absolutely crazy tonight." Yes, it seemed as though the night contained a lot of promise, until the check ca...
Love him or hate him, Geraldo Rivera has always been impossible to ignore. He made his first big splash in 1971 on New York City's WABC, with a groundbreaking exposé of wretched conditions at Willowbrook, a Staten Island school for the mentally ill, and he hasn't been far from the spotlight since. As an investigative newsmagazine journalist, daytime talk-show host or cable-news anchor, he's never been afraid to take risks. So it's no surprise he's taken up the daunting task of anchoring a syndicated daily half-hour news show for Fox — Geraldo at Large, starting Oct. 31 (check listings). The Biz recently talked with him about the upcoming project.
