A female reporter kissed on live TV says: 'This is not OK'
"I was shocked, but my nervous laughter does not equate to approval of his actions," Rivest said. "It was an exertion of power over me, a woman — trying to do her job — who couldn’t stop him. This embarrassed me, and it made me feel uncomfortable and powerless."

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Rivest said she wanted viewers to know that incidents like the one she experienced are "a violation and all-too-common occurrence."

"Journalists in the field, especially women, again just trying to do their jobs, experience harassment like this all of the time, and it is not OK. If you want to act like an idiot behind me in a live shot, that’s your choice," Rivest said. "But when you put your hands on me or anyone else without their approval, that is wrong."

Rivest reported the incident to police, and the man has since been identified as Eric Goodman, according to the Louisville Metro Police Department. Goodman has been charged with harassment with physical contact, a misdemeanor, and was issued a summons to appear in court, a department spokesman told NBC News on Thursday.

More than 300 people commented on the tweet. A majority of them supported her, saying Rivest handled the situation well while on air.

"I am so angry for you. Good for you for calling him out!" one commenter wrote.

"I’m pissed at myself that I laughed," Rivest responded.

She explained in an on-air conversation with veteran WAVE reporter Dawne Gee Monday that she was shaken and "didn't know how to react."

"I was shocked, but my nervous laughter does not equate to approval of his actions," Rivest said. "It was an exertion of power over me, a woman — trying to do her job — who couldn’t stop him. This embarrassed me, and it made me feel uncomfortable and powerless."

But perhaps one of the best reactions came from her 9-year-old "little sister" with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. "Oh my gosh Miss Sara. He stole your first kiss!" the girl said, according to Rivest. "So rude!"

This is not okay. Who knows where those lips have been? She did the right thing to report it. Empathically.

Recently a tweet has come out from singer, Kelly Clarkson, alerting her fans that she do not like people (not her husband  or family) coming up touching or kissing her face for the same reason: Who knows what communicable disease or whatever someone can be sharing, publicly?

Not. Cool.

This morning, I'm thinking even so, she (or he) as reporter will have to clear reactions with the station and local law (as to proportional response) around the country. Or, on the wildest of chances, the reporter can be sued (and station) for damages and potential injury. After all, there is footage right there.

reporter will have to clear reactions with the station and local law (

It's hard to clear it with the station when it happens spontaneously. After I filed for divorce, too many men believed that creepy old adage that divorced women will sleep with anyone because they miss sex so much. Made my life a misery for a while.

The place where I trained horses and riders had a grassy area with a campfire. There was a low fence around it so the horses wouldn't do something stupid and end up in the fire. One evening, I was leaning against the fence visiting with other horse people while some of them cooked on the campfire. A teen boy I knew sat on the fence beside me and put his arm around me, touching my breast as he did so. From the Cheshire cat grin on his face, it was obvious he felt like he'd done something marvelous in front of his buddies.

I reacted by knocking him over the fence. He also fell down a small sloped hill. Everyone laughed at him because they knew he was out of line. He was embarrassed, but came back to sit next to me. He apologized and did not touch me again.

I realize others may feel different, but if I had to do it over, I would. I should have been able to visit with my friends without worrying about being assaulted. We have the right to defend ourselves without waiting for an okay from someone else.

If I was her, I probably wouldn't hit him with the mike because they're expensive, but I would have nailed him somehow. He was doing the same as that teen boy: showing off for his friends at her expense.

The station has no say.  They cannot prevent her from defending herself.

As far as law enforcement, I imagine that in most places, she would be considered by law to be acting in self-defense.  If the unwanted kisser wished to sue her for damages, she could always press criminal charges.

Thanks Sandy! Actually my @ 3.1.5 comment was directed at your facebook comment! I clicked the wrong comment and imagine my 'horror' when I realized I had accidentally responded to myself! (Your facebook comment is even further down the page. - lots happening with me in the 'moment.') jrSmiley_2_smiley_image.png

What's worse is some clown(s) began to think it's 'trendy' to walk up on a reporter 'captured' by their professionalism and touch him or her. A professional is usually so 'in the moment' that they likely won't see the 'perp' walking up. Then, you feel. . . something . . . .

Well, I am referring to station written policy or 'field' policy on how reporters should and legally can respond to said incident. Let's take a hypothetical, that that guy in the pic/video has a glass-eye and the reporter whips his butt good and long enough for it to drop out on the pavement and crack, or it recedes into the back of his head. . . a court might question if the reporter overdid the defense of his/her person.

Largely, I agree with you and Sandy on this all-around. Hands off other people, especially professionals, doing their jobs!

I agree with your comment about a written policy...if the station made all of its employees aware of the policy. Having a written policy but not ensuring employees know about it does no good.

I once worked for a company that had an employee manual. However, I was surprised when my boss asked me to update it because, even though I'd been there for years, that was the first I'd heard of it.

I'm not sure a company would be on legally sound ground if they forbid women from defending themselves unless they provide others who would protect her.

Of course, this is pretty much a female problem. Male employees aren't in much danger of being assaulted by kissing women, IMO. I'd think they're in more danger of being assaulted by angry men. I remember one female reporter who was attacked by an angry man who was the topic of her story. He was a landlord abusing the laws about renting to black people. She was standing in front of the apartment house doing her story when he suddenly rushed in and began pummeling her and the camera man. Broke the camera, went to jail and ended up paying for the camera and their trip to the ER.

Loretta, this might be considered a bit of a 'redirect,' but it associates so well with your comment and loosely with the topic of assault (and in this case, murdering). Here are two women attacking a man in a busy airport in Malaysia, while his back is turned. One smears a substance on his face and the other strays a "solution" on his face afterwards.

Sadly, women can be bad actors too! Y'all might remember this chilling attack:

A disturbing number of Facebook commenters have said this is no big deal.  One even said the guy should have hit her, so she'd have something to complain about.

Most people should have learned by kindergarten to keep their hands and other body parts to themselves, but it seems that a sizable minority have not learned to either do so themselves, or expect it from others.

It was a "big deal" to her. She felt powerless while trying to do her job. The idea that our bodies are owned and controlled by men has to die. I went through this when I was a young teen and adult. The men who did it were gross. One was a old man who reeked of sweat and manure. Another claimed he was going to marry me, therefore he had a right to touch me. I was a young teen. He was an adult man. Some of them were boys I dated. None of the men who did it cared what I thought. As long as they wanted to touch me, they felt they had the right to do so.

I'm so glad for the #metoo movement that no doubt played a roll in the criminal charges against this man.

As men hear about or experience charges for grabbing our bodies, they'll change their behavior.

I admit I have been having a little fun with this and I should take it much more seriously. I mean he basically sexuality assaulted her and her life will never be the same after that day that we all got to witness on TV. Her body was probably a sacred, untouched temple and he he defiled it like a barbarian savage. He got off way too easy in my book. We really need to brainstorm on what to do about this kind of toxic masculinity.

OK first off she was not harmed. He gave her a peck on the cheek. To him it was probably really less about her and more about him making a fool of himself on TV. And this is not a male exclusive problem. There are men who have complained in their workplace of unwanted sexual advances from their female counterparts. People just don't make a big deal out of it. Just like this situation. If it was the other way around and he was the reporter and she kissed him, no one would care. Look at all the female school teachers who have had inappropriate relations with their students. You don't hear people make a big deal out of it although it is happening more often. However if it was a male teacher and a female student. Look out. Gross double standard.

Making with the funnies like that reinforces the idea that women shouldn’t have access to guns and I hope they recognize you for your help.

I don't think that's what Mr Frost is saying.

Why should women be forced to carry guns at work?How many employers would allow it? Why shouldn't men change the male culture to one of respect for women rather than telling women they need to carry guns?

I agree, not all men act like that. Only a few that were never brought up properly and respect other people.

“Why should women be forced to carry guns...”

You have a real gift for hyperbolic restatements of that never said nor intended. 

Hugs and snuggles.

I was about 15 and riding a bike down a road and I could hear a car approaching behind me. It got so close, I could feel the heat from the car on my legs. All the sudden I felt a very hard slap on my behind. It actually really hurt.  They pulled ahead laughed then took off.  It was humiliating and I was so angry. Nothing I could do about it.

These morons need to knock it off, and start acting like real  men.

I almost fell off the bike it was so hard. You know how your butt sticks out on them things. To tell you the truth, at the time I wish I had a gun. Shoot out their tires and ride away laughing back.

I swear people can be assholes. It's like they have no boundaries.

It's times like that I hope for karma. Like they drove a couple of blocks, weren't paying attention and ran into a tree.

The action was inappropriate.

The reactions are a bit excessive.

The litmus test I always apply and the question I find interesting is "what would have happened if the roles were reversed?"  If this had been a handsome young latino reporter and some drunk girl on her way out of the bourbon festival had stopped to kiss him on the cheek......the action would still be equally as inappropriate, BUT:

  • Would anybody really care?
  • What would the reaction be to the reporter complaining?
  • Would the same people still attempt to justify physical violence against the kisser?
  • Would the general reaction be to laugh it off or talk about how inappropriate it is?

No one should ever put their hands (or lips) on anyone else unless its consensual.

 These sort of articles are so feeble and in persuasive and pathetic frankly that I don’t know who they really are meant for. 

Self persuasion perhaps?

Hard to imagine that given the pre-ordained conclusions out the ass in just about every aspect of this.

I had my idiotic behind the reporter moment years ago involving blue baloons, gay men, fruit of the looms, and a box of wine (a story for another timejrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif ), but I would have never ever considered violating the reporter's personal space.
