(Newser) – Geraldo Rivera says he was "manually raped" by a New York airport security guard on his way to cover a story in Afghanistan. "The last time I flew to Afghanistan, I got manually raped by a guy," he said on Fox and Friends. "The scanner wasn't working. This guy, it seemed to me, was getting off on it. The angrier I got, he just wanted to be a little more intimate, and go up here and go down there," he recalled. "My junk was junked."

Rivera's gripe joins a litany of complaints against pushy, overly familiar TSA agents. A teenage girl's insulin pump was recently busted when she was ordered through a scanner against doctor's orders, and an aggressive patdown of two little girls—including one with cerebral palsy—infuriated their parents.
