During his show on July 30, Stephen Colbert delivered a powerful monologue about accountability in the #MeToo era.
“We know it’s wrong now,” he said of sexual assault and harassment. “And we knew it was wrong then.”
His boss, CBS President Les Moonves, has been accused by at least half a dozen women of sexual harassment and assault stemming back to the 1980s. The day after Colbert’s monologue, the Los Angeles Police Department announced it would not seek to prosecute Moonves over the allegations, making Colbert’s comments even more powerful.
