Michael Hastings' widow tore into Geraldo Rivera on Thursday morning after the Fox News host's insensitive tweet about the late journalist.

Hastings died on Tuesday; Rivera said his death was "tragic" but added, "hard to forget he destroyed career of 1 of our best fighting generals."

Jordan has also challenged a New York Times obituary which she said mischaracterized the fallout from Hastings' landmark article about Stanley McChrystal.
