The following is in reference to this national news.
Why is the story national news? Because, of our state of love for life as reality TV, and the continuing "gift" to the Sarah Palin's disjointed family via the US GOP. The gift of wealthy, unearned, undeserved and frankly, akin to the old TV series "The Beverly Hillbillies."
When it comes to the "Gift" Of the GOP and Fox News demagogue (former Fox News demagogues) we should expect a response from the network. Dan Savage, Gay Rights Activist, spoke frankly and honestly about the news of Bristol Palin's "Sex outside of marriage". By default he also criticised the Palin matriarch for her complete and utter hypocrisy in past criticism of unwed mothers.
Of late, Fox has dispatched Megyn "White Santa; white Jesus" Kelly to perform its hatchet work against those who defile the Fox News Business model and its host of demagogues. The comments for Dan Savage (below) were met from a less visible yet equally mouthy Fox News conservative, who frankly has such a jaded past, he should have thought more about defending his employer.

The Raw Story
Dan Savage pointed out on Thursday that Bristol Palin’s announcement regarding her second pregnancy will likely be treated more favorably by conservatives, compared to their usual rhetoric regarding single mothers.
“If Bristol Palin’s last name was ‘Obama,’ the whole Hee Haw gang at Fox News would spend half of every day for the next nine months telling us that Bristol Obama has terrible parents — ‘Maybe Michelle should be less concerned with what your kids are eating and more concerned with what her kids are doing!’ — and the other half of the day pretending to fret over the terrible example that Bristol Obama was setting for other African American women and girls,” Savage wrote.Read more linked above
While Fox is known for its zany and nonsensical response to what it perceives as an attack, Geraldo Rivera's response is historically and particularly disgusting unprofessional and outright "thuggish."
Rivera went "Fuck you, jerk off." You will be hard press to avoid the label "Thuggish" as you ingest Rivera's response.
Geraldo Rivera to Dan Savage: ‘F*ck You Jerk Off’by Andrew Kirell | 8:17 am, June 26th, 2015
On Thursday evening we reported that in response to paid abstinence spokeswoman Bristol Palin‘s second out-of-wedlock pregnancy, columnist Dan Savage suggested the response from Fox News would be different if Palin were the daughter of President Barack Obama. Let’s just say Fox’s Geraldo Rivera was unhappy with this assertion.
“If Bristol Palin’s last name was ‘Obama,'” Savage wrote, “the whole Hee Haw gang at Fox News would spend half of every day for the next nine months telling us that Bristol Obama has terrible parents… and the half of the day pretending to fret over the terrible example that Bristol Obama was setting for other African American women and girls.”
Here’s Rivera’s response:
@Mediaite fxck you jerk off. Fox news doesn't have a reaction to anyone's pregnancy

Savage seemed bemused, if anything:
