Rivera has begun to focus on his place in the history of American television journalism The host of CNBCs Rivera Live and the syndicated Geraldo Rivera Show surely knows better than anyone else that if he regarded as having been a positive force in the profession he has a lot of work to do These concerns not financial issues apparently are uppermost in Riveras mind as he ponders what to do after his contract with NBC expires this month Rivera accepted an offer from Fox News that emphasizes onair exposure in connection with news coverage That acceptance however triggered a clause in his existing contract that allows NBC to keep Rivera with an equivalent offer NBC executives sources said have crafted just such a proposal Rivera is weighing his options Some of this is downright silly of course as all the participants doubtless understand If Rivera is truly concerned about his reputation the worst thing he could possibly do is go to work for Rupert Murdoch journalisms Prince of Darkness and Murdochs pugnacious conservative Beelzebub Roger Ailes CEO of Fox News Ailes when he ran CNBC let Rivera devise a show that relied more on the hosts intelligence and interviewing skills NBC confronts some uncomfortable truths First Riveras generally respectable and interesting weeknight show is by far the most popular program on CNBC Even so it represents only five firstrun hours of the 168 hours the channel is on every week Second Rivera obviously travels with a lot of negarivejournalisticbaggager and it would be risky if not foolish for NBC to try to hold onto him by making sweeping formal commitments to use him on NBC News programs and for coverage of breaking stories But theres also a potcallingthe kettleblack factor here NBC is arguably televisions foremost practitioner of stealth tabloidism The difference between these practices and Riveras journalistic travesties might be more a matter of degree than of substance Rivera wants to break with his tarnished past Getting out of sleazy daytimetalk syndication would be a dramatic way to start Eric Mink New York Daily News GIFT BOOKS AVAILABLE 6296460 IH 35 and Walnut Ave EaglesJHall Invited New
