The Left says corporate America should be cleaning its own house when it comes to sexual misconduct

Who knew that capitalism was the answer to fixing bad behavior. A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the Left:

1. NBC Didn't Fire Matt Lauer. We Did.

From the New York Times: You can thank capitalism for Lauer’s downfall. But you shouldn’t have to.

2. It shouldn't take an impending exposé to topple the Matt Lauers of corporate America

From The Los Angeles Times: Businesses (and politics) need to take complaints of sexual misconduct seriously.

3.  Why the Matt Lauer case feels like betrayal 

From CNN: As painful as it must be for some, maybe the revelations of such misconduct will lead to change.
