NBC's and Minnesota Public Radio's quick actions of disassociating from "The Today Show" host Matt Lauer and radio personality Garrison Keillor, respectively, are attempts to keep their media audiences and revenues.

In fact, it is the total lack of responsible corporate protection that left the victims without anywhere to go with their shame and suffering. If not for the Weinstein tsunami, they would still be silent. Corporations should be punished by having to forfeit 10 percent of their revenues from the perpetrator's "brand" from the date of the incident to the date of the firing.

Otherwise NBC and MPR get to look like the good guys and retain the profits.
