As Twitchy reported, just about the same time that people were reading Variety’s exposé on Matt Lauer dropping his pants in his office and sending colleagues sex toys, Geraldo Rivera was tweeting that journalism is a flirty business, and in the current epidemic of sexual harassment allegations, maybe courtship is being conflated with predatory behavior.

Maybe Geraldo was just having trouble reading the room, what with everyone so tense about sexual harassment recently.

Exposing yourself to a colleague in your locked office doesn’t sound very “flirty” to us, but we’re not journalists like Geraldo.

It’s just courtship, yo.
