CNN’s Stelter Calls out NBC News on Matt Lauer: A ‘Powerful’ Man ‘Protected’ for ‘Many Years’

‘You still wonder about the power imbalance in situations like this’

EXCERPT:

STELTER: "You remember at the time Lauer was fired, the report was this was an inappropriate sexual encounter at work. Rape is something different. A rape is a crime. And that's what Brooke Nevils is alleging. She spoke with Farrow because of Farrow's reporting about Harvey Weinstein, a reflection of how the world is changing, how there is progress being made. But you still wonder about the power imbalance in situations like this. Powerful men who seem to be protected by their companies, in Lauer’s case, perhaps protected for many years."
