John Oliver used to do these satirical joke segments about your banter with Charlie Rose on his show. … Has it made you think about how you relate to male colleagues on air? No. I am not worried about people misinterpreting what I say. I don’t want to turn myself into a pretzel trying to figure it out. You know when something is inappropriate.
Did you have a moment when you just wanted to have the show hosted by the two women anchors — you and Norah O’Donnell — after Charlie’s dismissal? There are a lot of men in the world; I think it’s good to have one at the table. I really advocated bringing in another man. Could Norah and I have done it? Yep, but I’m glad that wasn’t the decision that was made.
You’ve talked about the potential for backlash to the #MeToo movement. How do you see that playing out? I do worry about that, because I think when a woman makes an accusation, the man instantly gets the death penalty. There has to be some sort of due process here. All of these inappropriate behaviors are not all the same.
