Another look at Geraldo's Diary:Jan. 3 -- Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of . . . aw, hell. We all know the answer to that one. Geraldo's nose is looking especially good today, amigos. Finely chiseled yet manly. Prominent yet not overwhelming. Then again, for what I paid, it should open garage doors and double as a reading lamp.Jan. 10 -- Message on my desk says that a Yitzhak Shamir called. Hmmm, Shamir, Shamir . . . is that the guy who used to play on "Falcon Crest?"Jan. 19 -- Liz Taylor wants me. Ran into her at a party at Le Cirque.

Fox News Channel yesterday agreed to sideline Geraldo Rivera, its senior war correspondent, after U.S. military officials said he compromised the security of troops in Iraq. In a statement, the network said that Rivera had "volunteered to return to Kuwait," though Pentagon officials had insisted on his departure from Iraq. Rivera had arrived late last week to accompany the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division's push toward Baghdad. In reports that appeared on Fox News late Sunday and early Monday, Rivera sketched maps in the sand of that unit's activity, drawing the ire of U.S. commanding officers.

When the error was discovered, the Klan show was pulled and replaced by the correct tape.

Fox News Channel war correspondent Geraldo Rivera is being forced out of Iraq by U.S. military officials, just days after joining an American combat unit there. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Charles Owens, a spokesman for the U.S. Central Command based in Doha, Qatar, said Rivera was to be escorted from the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division's encampment inside Iraq to the Kuwaiti border some miles to the south. Fox News had little official comment yesterday afternoon. "We're in contact with the Pentagon, and we're looking into the matter," Fox spokesman Robert Zimmerman said.

Trying to find the low point of Ronald Walter Price's appearance on the Thursday edition of "Geraldo!" is like trying to pin blame for the smell of a barnyard on one particularly strong source.It might be impossible to say, for sure, where the taped show realized its foulest potential, and the exercise is purely subjective. But I'll tell you this: My nose twitched significantly when attorney Tim Umbreit raised a hand and announced that he and his client had a correction to make for the national television audience.

Gather up some old shoes if you intend to watch NBC's "Empty Nest" and "Nurses" tonight. You'll end up throwing them at the screen in despair over a sweeps month ratings ploy so trashy it can be defined in one word: Geraldo.That's Geraldo, as in Rivera, the syndicated talk-show host. He makes guest appearances in both shows tonight (at 9 and 9:30, respectively, on Channel 2), in the latest "seamless" story line linking the two sitcoms set in Miami.In "Empty Nest," we even hear a line that perfectly describes the gimmick.

In recent days, as Fox News Channel's Geraldo Rivera says he has been ducking fire in Afghanistan, he has also been drawing unwanted attention at home. News executives and journalism ethicists say Fox News needs to investigate and explain publicly the genesis of a discredited report by Rivera from the front lines of the war. "If it's found that a reporter hasn't let the facts get in the way of a good story, then I think that's a firing offense," said Jeffrey Dvorkin, ombudsman and former vice president for news at National Public Radio.

The day after three American servicemen and several Afghan opposition troops were accidentally killed in a U.S. bombing raid last week, Fox News Channel war correspondent Geraldo Rivera told viewers that he had said the Lord's Prayer over that "hallowed ground," where "the friendly fire took so many of our, our men and the mujahedeen yesterday." But Rivera now acknowledges that he never visited the site where the U.S. servicemen died last Wednesday, just north of Kandahar in the southern region of Afghanistan.

Recently I watched as a professional engineer attempted to flush fermented bean curd down a toilet. This was not some fun engineer prank. This was a laboratory test conducted at the research center of the National Association of Home Builders, which is trying to develop a laboratory test for toilet performance that simulates the challenges faced by toilets in the real world. This research is necessary because Americans are unhappy with the wimpy toilets we are now required to buy. We yearn for the glory years, when our toilets were among the most powerful on earth -- when the standard American household commode could, in a single flush, as proven in actual tests, suck down a mature sheep.

NEW YORK -- Geraldo Rivera has made a reputation for himself with grand events such as the opening of gangster Al Capone's vault.The vault turned out to be empty, as have so many of the claims from the TV talk show host. Yet, stories such as these, devoid of factual content, haven't stood in the way of Rivera's rise to television fame.He commands a salary well into seven figures. His television persona (on display on the CNBC talk show "Rivera Live!") is based on indignation -- over the way President Clinton has been treated, over the O.J. Simpson verdict, over political views he doesn't share.

WASHINGTON -- When Lanny J. Davis walks the halls with a frown on his face -- even when he's just lost in thought -- his fellow White House staffers shudder. "Uh-oh, what's wrong?" they ask. "Are we going to have a bad day?"In tough times -- Davis' specialty -- most avoid him. "It's like I'm a walking dead man," he says. Afterward, when the bad stuff is all over the news, sympathetic colleagues pat him on the back and console him, saying: "You've got the worst job in this place."Davis is the White House flak catcher.
