Unless it’s a tea party rally, Fox News and American protests don’t seem to mix well.

Host Geraldo Rivera decided to go down to the Occupy Wall Street protests Sunday afternoon and ended up having an unpleasant experience.

Protesters immediately surrounded Rivera and his network’s cameras and began shouting “Fox News Lies!” After a few minutes, Rivera decided to leave. His departure was cheered by protesters, who sang “Hey, hey, hey, goodbye!”

This isn’t the first time in 2011 that the network has been greeted by the public with chants of “Fox News lies!” During the Wisconsin union protests in February, reporter Jeff Flock was barraged by one man yelling the now famous chant.

In addition, this latest episode of Occupy Wall Street giving embarrassment to Fox News comes more than a week after protester Jesse LaGreca called out producer Griff Jenkins in a viral Youtube clip that the network chose not to air.

WATCH: Video from Youtube, which appeared on October 9, 2011.
