CounterPunch editor and longtime columnist for the Nation Alexander Cockburn died Friday. It appears Geraldo Rivera was not the president of Cockburn’s fan club.
That tweet followed another curious posting by Geraldo:
The worst part about Aurora is not that calamities happen so often, but that there are so few given our far flung guns & unknowable psychos

Really, Geraldo? The worst part is that there are not more mass shootings? Come on.
Understandably, outrage ensued.
Seriously, @GeraldoRivera needs to explain himself on that last tweet or lose his job.

@BrandonPurifoy I agree. @GeraldoRivera either hates uncertainty too much or just (as my mom suggested) may be losing it in his old age.

@GeraldoRivera WTH does that mean? I hope you just forgot to proofread.

@GeraldoRivera How is the fact that there are so few calamities WORSE than their happening so often? Bold in intent, incompetent n execution
