    Geraldo Rivera tweeted an apology to actress Bette Midler after she posted a video of an interview from 1991 where she accused him of drugging her and groping her in the 1970s. Rivera said he recalled the incident much different than the way Midler does, but he still apologizes for his actions.

    RUSH: Geraldo Rivera wanted to get in on the action here on the Matt Lauer story. Greetings, my friends, welcome back, Rush Limbaugh and the EIB Network. Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. Telephone number, 800-282-2882. So when the news broke that Matt Lauer had been fired for the reasons that he was fired, Geraldo tweeted or somehow said in the public domain that this sounded a bit extreme to him because the news business is “flirty.” He said the sexual harassment issue “is so red hot right now there is no room for any thought or opinion but hang...

    Geraldo Rivera is apologizing for calling the news business “flirty” in the wake of “Today” show host Matt Lauer’s firing by NBC over sexual misconduct allegations. The Fox News reporter tweeted Wednesday that the sexual harassment issue is “so red hot right now there is no room for any thought or opinion but hang em high.” He added: “If News wasn’t (formerly) a flirty biz then how do we explain so many newsroom courtships that have led to happy marriages?” Rivera also suggested there was a “slight chance” that those making allegations were motivated by big money settlements.

    Geraldo Rivera has embraced conspiracy theories about the death of Seth Rich, becoming the second Fox News personality after Sean Hannity to push fake news about the ex-Democratic National Committee staffer’s death. After false reports that e-mails from WikiLeaks were found on Rich’s server, Hannity began pushing the idea that Rich could have been killed as plot to protect Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Rich’s parents – who have appealed to the public to help solve his murder – have denounced the conspiracy. Rivera, who anchors the channel’s “Geraldo at Large” program, gave the conspiracy theory some life with...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ,” Fox News Correspondent Geraldo Rivera stated that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow “now has the mantle of the Al Capone vault.” Rivera, who hosted the hyped 1986 live TV special “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults,” which ended with the opening of a vault owned by gangster Al Capone that was completely empty except for some debris, said, “I tell you what I did find was ratings. And I think Rachel Maddow also will discover the ratings inside the empty vault. But I think that, because she made fun of me,...

    “Nothingburger” was one of a number of terms used to describe MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s report on Donald Trump‘s 2005 tax return on Tuesday night. In a segment she hyped up on Twitter, Maddow revealed the contents of two pages from Trump’s tax return for that year. The return showed that Trump paid 24 per cent in tax on income of $150 million for the 2005 tax year. That’s about the same amount that a married couple with two incomes totalling around $400,000 might have paid, said David Cay Johnston, the investigative journalist who obtained the return to start with....

    Fidel Castro died as he lived: to the sound of useful idiots making allowances for his crimes. (That's not my term: It was Lenin who called liberal apologists for Communism "useful idiots.") The gold medal in the Useful Idiot Olympics should probably go to Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada. In a statement, he expressed his "deep sorrow" upon learning that "Cuba's longest serving president" had died. One can only imagine what George Orwell could do with that one word, "serving." Castro did not serve; he ruled a nation of servants, often cruelly, while making obscene profits for himself...

    Geraldo Rivera reversed course early Wednesday morning, saying that he does not actually have additional tapes of Donald Trump making troublesome statements. The Fox News personality apologized to Trump on Twitter for claiming earlier this week that he had unreleased videos of the Republican presidential nominee making comments that "would be embarrassing." In fact, Rivera said, all he had were tapes of Trump's comments about comedian Rosie O'Donnell, whom Trump has called "fat," a "pig," and a "loser." Contrary to my on-air remarks- a search of my files found No Relevant #TrumpTapes. There is 1 re: ugly feud w Rosie...

    The retired U.S. Army general and former NATO commander accused of masterminding the recent failed coup in Turkey has an alibi -- he was having a beer with Fox News Channel's Geraldo Rivera. Yeni Safak, a Turkish tabloid known as friendly to the increasingly authoritarian regime in Ankara, hit newsstands Monday with a front-page blaring in Turkish “This man led the coup,” alongside a picture of U.S. Army Gen. J.F. Campbell. It was news to Campbell, who retired in May after a distinguished, 37-year career that saw him most recently serve in both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Campbell served...

    At about 9AM this morning, Geraldo had an epiphany. If you search Geraldo and guns on Youtube, you will see that he is on record for more gun control and fewer guns --- until now!!! This morning, he actually said that every venue where Americans are gathered needs one or more people with guns to protect those who are there from the terrorists. He has finally realized that the only way to stop a bad man with a gun from causing a horrific tragedy is by having a good man or two with a gun to kill the bad man....

    Fox News reporter Geraldo Rivera was caught on a hot mic late Tuesday blasting Bernie Sanders’s win in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary. “So annoying — this guy is so annoying,” he said of Sanders as the independent Vermont senator made his victory speech in Salem, Ore. “Your mic is hot,” fellow Fox News personality Sean Hannity told Rivera. "What are you saying?” “He’s so annoying,” Rivera added. "People that think his supporters are going to go to Donald Trump are smoking dope.” Rivera’s assessment drew laughter and an exclamation of “what?” from the other assembled Fox News journalists.

After acknowledging that the GOP presidential candidate would have to answer for his history of having illegal immigrants doing construction work for him, Rivera brought up Trump's position on Israel as he added: My point, Brian, is that in the big picture this was the reasonable man on the stage. How is...
