Sexual Misconduct Claims Another Leftist in Media
The Left may have destroyed Roy Moore, but they opened up a can of whoop-ass on themselves.
The list of lecherous Leftist grows every day. And the list of fallen Leftists does the same.
Weinstein opened the flood gates, and flood gates topple the “Deminoes” almost daily now. The latest is Tavis Smiley.
According to the Hollywood Reporter,
The public broadcaster is indefinitely suspending distribution of the talk show in light of allegations against its host.
PBS is suspending distribution of late-night talk show Tavis Smiley following sexual misconduct claims levied against its host.
The decision comes after the public broadcaster conducted an investigation into Smiley and found “credible allegations” of inappropriate behavior.
“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of Tavis Smiley, produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” a PBS spokesperson said Wednesday in a statement. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”
Key word in this “indefinite suspension”, aka “firing” of Smiley: credible.
Having seen bits of the show once in a while, I’m not sure how it stayed on the air. Oh right, PBS: our tax dollars.
I remember watching some show, and Smiley was being driven to the studio in a limo. I thought to myself, “Seriously! Any clown could do his show.” But as I reflect back on that moment, I can see how people begin to think of themselves as bigger than life.
The article continues,
Smiley, who served as host and producer on the show, allegedly was involved in sexual relationships with multiple members of his staff who claim he fostered a hostile work environment and engaged in verbal abuse, according to a report by Variety.
Those allegations certainly add to those of a former senior producer for Smiley’s show:
*A man who worked as a senior producer for Tavis Smiley has exposed the talk show host as being a self-absorbed misogynist who has contempt for white people… most likely because he has paid a high price to “be a token.”
In Jacques Hyzagi’s extremely exhaustive piece for observer.com, he notes the politically correct sham of PBS and describes Tavis as “completely delusional.” He also says Smiley’s talk show is run by “an imbecile” named Kimberly Logan, who, according to the word around town, is Tavis’ alleged occasional love interest. Kim is painted as being clueless about anything outside celebrity culture.
“The problem is that nobody wants to do Tavis’ show. One reason might very well be that people in Hollywood are not exactly political scientists,” Hyzagi writes.
Keep in mind, this is a Leftist explaining the dirty underbelly of Leftism by exposing his Leftist boss!
Remember Charlie Rose of PBS?
Just last month, the public broadcaster also cut ties with Charlie Rose. And they killed Rose in syndication, canceling distribution of his namesake shows, Charlie Rose and Charlie Rose The Week.
Like Smiley, Rose was accused of multiple accusations of sexual harassment, which were made public by The Washington Post.
“PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs,” the organization said at the time. “PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.”
If things keep going like this, PBS will have nobody left but the janitor.
