Requests for further comment from Hoffman's and Oliver's reps were not immediately returned to ABC News. We have a platform here. Not only was the venue totally inappropriate for such an off-topic ambush, but Oliver was also very wrong to automatically presume Hoffman to be guilty of being a sexual abuser/harasser based exclusively on what is now in the public record.
