This is a crock and it's getting out of hand.  I don't believe these allegations against Smiley.  It's to the point of ridiculous. 

Variety reports PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations against its host and namesake.

“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” the public broadcaster said. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credibleallegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”
