  • Bette Midler to Geraldo Rivera: Apologize for alleged sexual assault

The video resurfaced today, a day after Rivera, now a Fox News reporter, defended Matt Lauer after the "Today" show co-host was sacked for allegations of sexual misconduct.

"Me, Too", then shared the video of the Barbara Walters interview in which she accuses Rivera.

"You have no way of knowing at the time that these things are going to come back to haunt you", she added as Walters tried to move on to another topic. But there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed or ashamed.

Of course, it's curious that Rivera didn't face repercussions at the time of Midler's allegations considering they were made to one of his colleagues and aired on the network that employed him at the time. At first Midler laughs off the book's claim, then gets serious, saying she would probably get in trouble if she divulged the circumstances of their first encounter. On Thursday, Midler tweeted that all these years later, Rivera still hasn't apologized for what he did to her. Walters lightly coaxes her into spilling the story, which turns out to be quite disturbing. "We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her breasts", he wrote in Exposing Myself.

After Rivera and a producer left their TV crew in another room, they "pushed me into my bathroom".

And the game they were making was actually being supported by a team in Vancouver and a team in Montreal because of that sub-scale nature.

Media figures and celebrities have reacted strongly to NBC's dismissal of Matt Lauer Wednesday for alleged sexual misconduct.

After Rivera posted his original tweets, Fox News was quick to comment that they "do not reflect the views of Fox News or its management". Big-bucks settlements mean some people might be motivated by "more than justice", he said.

"Geraldo may have apologised for his tweets supporting Matt Lauer, but he has yet to apologise for this. We were troubled by his comments and are addressing them with him".

Five hours later, after the tweet drew controversy and led Fox News to issue a statement distancing itself from Rivera's comments, Rivera apologized for the tweet and called sexual harassment "a horrendous problemlong hidden".

Fox has dismissed two high-profile men over sexual misconduct allegations involving their behavior while at the news channel, host Bill O'Reilly in April and CEO Roger Ailes, who was sacked in 2016 and died earlier this year.
