Bette Midler: Geraldo Rivera Has Not Apologized For 1991 Groping

Fox News' Geraldo Rivera apologized after his tweets about sexual harassment.

Geraldo Rivera is apologizing for a memoir published a quarter-century ago that recounts sexual experiences he says he's now "embarrassed" about.

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

The network 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.

"Tomorrow is my birthday".

Midler added that she did not "offer myself up on the altar of Geraldo Rivera".

This man is bad at apologies.

All 30 teams could potentially be in the mix, since worldwide signing caps significantly limit the price of the 23-year-old. The teams with the most to offer include the Rangers ($3,335,000), the Yankees ($3.25 million) and Twins ($3,245,000).

She said in the video that Rivera and a producer pushed her into a bathroom and drugged and groped her. "They broke two poppers and pushed them under my nose and proceeded to grope me", Midler told Walters.

"27 years ago I wrote a tawdry book depicting consensual events in 1973-45 years ago-I've deeply regretted its distasteful & disrespectful tone & have refrained from speaking about it", he wrote. In it, Rivera wrote about Midler, "We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her breasts". "He was ... he was unseemly".

Rivera's employer, Fox News, said it was "troubled" by his comments, and Rivera later apologized in a string of tweets, saying, among other things, that he "didn't sufficiently explain that this is a horrendous problem long hidden".

Sad about @MLauer great guy, highly skilled & empathetic w guests & a real gentleman to my family & me. In tweets yesterday, he claimed "news is a flirty business" and "the current epidemic of #SexHarassmentAllegations may be criminalizing courtship & conflating it w predation".

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 is a "roaming correspondent-at-large for Fox News" and has worked for the network since 2001.

Rivera later apologized for the tweets, calling harassers "deviants".
