Geraldo: ABC Fired Me for $200 Political Donation in 1985

Looks like the rules have changed at ABC News.....

ABC says that it is standing behind Anchor George Stephanopolous, even after his  $75,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation.

Former ABCer Geraldo Rivera says that ABC canned in back in 1985 after he made a $200  political contribution.

“I was fired by ABC News in 1985...the official reason given for my being fired in 1985 was a $200 donation I made to a non-partisan mayoral campaign.”

Rivera did add, “I was at odds with ABC News management. George Stephanopoulos is the darling of ABC News management so they will treat him with kid gloves. They will try their best to protect and preserve him because he is very effective as a broadcaster.”
