The recent news of Matt Lauer's firing from NBC is keeping the conversation about sexual misconduct in the workplace alive and well.
On Wednesday morning, the network announced its decision to fire the longtime anchor after a female colleague came forward with a detailed allegation of sexual misconduct against him.
"Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender," the network said in a statement.
Earlier today, Lauer released his official response and apology, saying he's "truly sorry" for his mistakes.
Most people came out in support of NBC's decision to terminate Lauer, but Puerto Rican journalist Geraldo Rivera expressed, uh, different sentiments.
Since Rivera happened to insist allegations should be made in a "timely fashion," the internet resurfaced a video of Bette Midler from the '90s.
In the video, she details how Rivera once drugged and groped her without her consent.
No wonder he was so quick to fire back against sexual misconduct allegations against a journalist...
