Wow, that's big and shocking news. Was NBC action an appropriate CYA or an overreaction due to allegations smearing the NBC name?

  • Yes, he may have sexually harassed women and conducted innaportiate behavior possibly as well. There may have been audio and/or video as evidence of that behavior. 
  • He absolutely deserved it. The allegations was one of rape, not just sexual behaviour.

    Under a system of perfectly free commerce, each country naturally devotes its capital and labour to such employments as are most beneficial to each. This pursuit of individual advantage is admirably connected with the universal good of the whole. By stimulating industry, by regarding ingenuity, and by using most efficaciously the peculiar powers bestowed by nature, it distributes labour most effectively and most economically.
