MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): You said you don’t think [Oprah] was that brave. Everybody on in that room was up on their feet and you said she wasn’t brave last night. What did you mean?

She was being cheered by people who said nothing about it for 20 years and there she is pretending that she is leading the fight. In what way has she led the fight, I sort of missed it? Just because she said some stuff last night, I haven’t seen how things have materially changed.
