The “courtship” in Lauer’s case allegedly involved giving dildos as gifts and demanding a spontaneous BJ from a surprised co-worker.

Sad about @MLauer great guy, highly skilled & empathetic w guests & a real gentleman to my family & me. News is a flirty business & it seems like current epidemic of #SexHarassmentAllegations may be criminalizing courtship & conflating it w predation. What about #GarrisonKeillor?

Geraldo approves of married men courting co-workers? I wonder what Matt Lauer's wife thinks about her husband's behavior?

Investigate what? On his radio show on WABC he used to openly chat about his exploits. He's a proud dirtbag.

Yeah. He had a show after they lost Rush and Sean to WOR. I don't know if his show is still going on, but he talked about himself all the damn time.

Nope. Since they fired one from NBC and CBS already, Charlie Gibson is up next. They are firing him retroactively for pulling the stick out of Joan Lunden's ass. She found it inappropriate.

#SexHarassment allegations should require: 1-made in a timely fashion-say w/n 5 yrs. 2-some contemporaneous corroboration, like witnesses, electronic or written communications. W $ settlements in multi-millions slight chance exists some victims are motivated by more than justice

This tells me 3 things; 1  Geraldo's sexual harassment allegations were over 5 years ago, 2 - He thinks there are no witnesses/documents, 3 - He paid a hefty settlement to make them go away.

Your '23 Franklin might not have one of these but my wagon has a radio in the dashboard that picks up stations far and wide. One of which is WABC....

Are we criminalizing “courtship” in the workplace?

Well, if I might venture an opinion....Yes.  Despite the fact Whorealdo is a pervert.   On a cultural level, the zeitgeist now reaching hysteria teaches both in business and on college campus that to look upon a woman is harassment and to ask one out on a date is rape and/or child molestation depending on the age of the female at the time she accuses you of such.

At the same time, to ignore and/or to refuse to make eye contact or talk with a woman is creating a hostile environment.  Damned if you do - damned if you don't.  Damned if you are in the same building as a woman methinks.

It is so damn confusing out there now.  I couldn't handle the single/dating scene these days considering I cannot get a grip on what pronoun to call some self-identifying lesbian who used to be a man whom self-identifies as a teenage Philipino trapped in a hairy Nordic man's body.  No wonder single men prefer gaming and sex robots to a relationship with a female these days.

Speaking of confusion, I think we have been told affirmatively by the Female Empowerment Activists that there should be a written and signed form of compliance by the man, before reaching each stage of intimacy. That each level of foreplay must be agreed to in advance and most importantly: if he is entitled to have his after she has hers.  No after all it is said, is no.  Even if she gets hers and he is still working on it and she decides she is too tired or bored to continue.  Of course if he gets his before hers, I think he is liable for criminal action, even if both of them have signed an agreement to go 'all the way'.  I think it was advised that all single men get an attorney on retainer and to receive approval by a court before asking a woman out on a date.

So, the answer to these horrifying abuses of women, is that all men should just kill themselves and leave the planet for the Amazons.

Vibrators as gifts may be the best thing Lauer will have done for the future of woman-kind.

No wonder the sex robot industry is thriving.

I wonder if someone will advocate for them to have rights against abuse soon too.

And then there are all those vacuum cleaners that have been discarded and abused for decades...

Quote
A Fox News Channel spokeswoman said Wednesday that the network is "troubled" by contributor Geraldo Rivera's comments regarding sexual harassment in the media.

Rivera, a former talk show host, responded to the firing of NBC News host Matt Lauer over sexual misconduct allegations by tweeting that "news is a flirty business."

In a series of tweets after the announcement of the "Today" show hosts dismissal, Rivera defended Lauer as a "real gentleman" and charged that some women make sexual harassment accusations to seek revenge.

"Geraldo's tweets do not reflect the views of Fox News or its management," the network said in a statement. "We were troubled by his comments and are addressing them with him."

Yes.  It's German.

'Rivera' like 'Fubar' and 'Von Schtupp' are synonyms.

Low German meaning: "intercourse with whores".
