Geraldo Rivera: Fox and NewsBusters 'Will Be Fair' With RNC Coverage, Not So Sure About Rest of Media

Geraldo Rivera on Monday praised the fairness of Fox News and NewsBusters while not being so kind about how the mainstream media will cover the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Speaking with NewsBusters about how the press will report the event, Rivera said, "We’ll be fair, you’ll be fair – we’ll leave them to their own just deserts" (video follows with commentary):

For those either unfamiliar with the expression "just deserts" or thinking it's "desserts," it means to receive what one deserves; despite the pronunciation, it indeed is spelled with only two s's.

As for the mainstream media getting what they deserve, would declining ratings and readership as they fade to irrelevance suffice?
