  • Geraldo Rivera defends Matt Lauer amid sexual harassment allegations and says 'news is a flirty business'

Rivera's post follows a tweet on Thursday by actress and singer Bette Midler renewing an allegation of being drugged and groped by Rivera and his producer colleague in the 1970s. "Gerald may have apologized for his tweets supporting Matt Lauer, but he has yet to apologize for this".

Usually an apology doesn't begin with a preamble about how you didn't actually do anything.

That interview took on fresh importance after Rivera, 74, defended "Today" show anchor Matt Lauer, who was sacked for alleged sexually inappropriate behavior at work and on assignments. In her tweet, Midler called for an apology.

Rivera apologized to Midler on Twitter, as well as others who he said he may have hurt with the release of his 1991 book, "Exposing Myself".

This man is awful at apologies. "They pushed me into my bathroom, they broke two poppers and pushed them under my nose and proceeded to grope me".

A representative for Midler told ABC News that she had no further comment beyond her tweet. A partial selection of his recollection of their interaction was included in a Washington Post review: "We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her breasts", he wrote.

"Twenty seven years ago I wrote a tawdry book depicting consensual events in 1973-45 years ago". In her message accompanying the video, she said that while Rivera had apologized for tweets on Wednesday, he hadn't addressed her allegation. "He was ... he was unseemly".

Rivera later apologized for his comments about Lauer.

Rivera faced backlash after posting series of tweets on Wednesday defending Lauer and saying that news is a "flirty business".

He said sexual harassment should be limited to situations where a supervisor imposes him or herself on a subordinate who feels unable to make a complaint.

Rivera also suggested sexual harassment may be "used to get even w bad bosses or hated ex's" and added a "slight chance exists some victims are motivated by more than justice". Rivera is a "roaming correspondent-at-large for Fox News" and has worked for the network since 2001.
