the University of Michigan, had a dif-
ferent image of Rivera. Before he
became a New York-based columnist
and best-selling crime novelist, Chafets
headed the Israeli Government Press
Office under former Prime Minister
That meant Chafers dealt with the
international media during Israel's war
in Lebanon in the late 1970s and
early 1980s, when a pre-tabloid
Rivera was a foreign correspondent
for ABC News.
Chafets wrote about media coverage
of Israel in the book Double Vision,
and he recalled Rivera, "in a very
stand-up way," claiming that the
Palestine Liberation Organization had
threatened his life.
'At that time he was distinguished
among American TV journalists by
his honesty," Chafets said in an inter-
Chafets has not spoken with Rivera
for nearly 20 years,
but added that as

him to be in any

of investigative reporting on TV.
He then hosted a syndicated tabloid
talk show, Geraldo, which featured
topics such as "Men in Lace Panties
and the Women Who Love Them."
The show broke ratings records
when a brawl broke out between neo-
Nazis and blacks on the set and
Rivera's nose was broken in the melee.
More recently Rivera worked for
the cable business news channel
CNBC, and in 2001 Fox News
Channel hired him as a foreign corre-
With Fox, Rivera covered the U.S.
war in Afghanistan, where he stepped
into a media minefield by saying he
was near enemy lines when he was
not. He called it a mistake.
Rivera also came under attack in Iraq
for revealing sensitive military details,
which he also called an error. ❑
