<p>GERALDO RIVERA: He [George Stephanopolous] made a terrible miscalculation there. He should have revealed to the public and certainly to his employers. Remember I was fired by ABC News in 1985. The official reason given for my firing in 1985, of course, I had a very contentious relationship with my boss Roone Arledge at the time for other matters. But the official reason given for my being fired in 1985 was a $200 donation I made to a non-partisan mayoral campaign in the town of New Bedford, Massachusetts to a family friend.</p>

<p>That was - ABC news seized on that because we had this fight going on between me and the bosses anyway. They seized on my $200 nonpartisan donation and I&rsquo;ve never since 1985 as a result of that given my money to any P.A.C, any candidate because it was taken so seriously.</p>

<p>But 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.</p>
