Fox News: Politico FIRED Reporter Who Hate-Tweeted About Dead Pope Benedict

News & Politics

On New Year’s Day, we reported Politico cyber-security reporter Eric Geller couldn’t help but trash recently deceased Pope Benedict XVI with this tweet: “Homophobic pedophile protector and Hitler Youth alumnus dead at 95.”

Fox News media reporter Joseph Wulfsohn now reports all evidence suggests Politico dismissed Geller after the tweet. 

Geller’s Twitter bio was changed from reading “cybersecurity reporter at @politico” to “journalist focused on cybersecurity and technology,” and according to his author page on Politico’s website, Geller has not had a story published since December 21.

His personal website, according to the internet archives, went from labeling him to being a cybersecurity reporter at Politico” to a “cybersecurity journalist in Washington, D.C.”

“I’m a journalist covering cybersecurity for Politico, including our subscription service Politico Pro. I write about cyber policy developments at the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies,” his website previously read as recently as Dec. 28, according to the Wayback Machine. 

It now reads, “I’m a journalist focused on cybersecurity and technology. Most recently, I spent six and a half years covering cybersecurity for Politico, where I mostly wrote about how the government protects U.S. computer networks from hackers.”

Remember that Twitchy showed Geller tweeted adoringly about Ted Kennedy.

After Geller’s hate-speech outburst, Politico spokesperson Brad Dayspring tweeted that Geller’s post was a “clear violation of our social media policy and was both inaccurate and offensive.” He added violations “are subject to an internal review process” that could result “in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.”
