Talk show host Tavis Smiley, who saw production of his show suspended by PBS following allegations of sexual harassment, argued on ABC’s Good Morning America yesterday that PBS “made a huge mistake and they need to fix it.” Smiley said that while he has had consensual relationships with coworkers, and applauds women who have come forward with allegations of harassment, “I want to make sure we don’t lose all sense of nuance and proportionality because if we do, people end up being guilty simply by accusation.”

PBS quickly responded to Smiley’s GMA remarks. “Mr. Smiley…told viewers, ‘I don’t know where your heart’s going to lead you,’” said the net. “PBS is certain that it should not lead you to multiple sexual relationships between the owner of a company and subordinates over many years particularly where employment decisions may be linked to sex.”
