Geraldo Rivera Special
Devil Worship: Exposing Satan’s Underground

In 1998, Geraldo Rivera decided he was going to capitalize on the paranoid fears of Satanism, much like he is doing now by capitalizing on right-wing fuckery. He produced and directed a documentary called “Devil Worship: Exposing Satan’s Underground,” an awesomely ridiculous and sensationalized look at Satanism. According to Geraldo, one of the major gateways to Satanism is heavy metal – whaaaat? You won’t find anything about Satan on this site, Mister. He talks to Ozzie – with his fabulous 80s blonde mane and massive shoulder pads – who says that he feels persecuted by the paranoid parents and media who blame his music for their children’s dark tendencies. To me, this documentary is a replay of the hysteria surrounding punks, but this time targeting metal. A few years later, it would be rap. Now, maybe its EDM (with good fucking reason, mind you). It’s a hilarious piece of ridiculous history, and a must see for any metal head. WARNING: visiting CVLT Nation may make you sell your soul to Satan.

    The satanic ritual abuse era is the best example of why every moral panic is illogical & generates so much more harm than good.

    I’ll give geraldo one thing. His first big report really exposed the terrible conditions that were going on in a lot of big state mental institutions, and forced a lot of positive changes in those institutions, if he would have continued doing expose journalism instead of turning into a tabloid hack, he may have done some good, dude even snuck into a facility when they didnt know he was coming and found people in awful condition vs. The almost rockwell portrait that was shown when the staff knew he was going to be there. I dont know how he turned into such a cunt but he started out being an actual journalist.

      I have to agree, he was really onto something with exposing abuse in mental institutions. Too bad he sold out to witch hunts.
