Colbert to Trump: Sorry you didn't get Time's 'Person of the Year' but 'at least some of your accusers did'
The Person of the Year announcement came on a USA television show that has itself been rocked by controversy NBC's Today show, which fired Matt Lauer over sexual assault and harassment claims just one week earlier.
Milano says she wasn't aware of Burke's earlier contribution when she made the tweet, and has since credited her.
"I think this is a watershed moment indeed, but I think we need to be clear that this is a moment for some people and not for all people", Burke told Kelly. "The image you see partially on the cover is of a woman we talked to, a hospital worker in the middle of the country who shared her story with us and some others but doesn't feel like she can come forward without threatening her livelihood".
"As women, we have to support each other and stand together and say, 'That's it".
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Time's 2015 Person of the Year, said through a spokesman that this year's winners should be thanked for "having the courage to break the silence on sexual assaults and for the worldwide discussion that they have launched". "I deeply admire what many of them have done and I admire Time for honoring them", said Professor Joan Williams, founding director of Worklife Law at UC Hastings. "It's vital to me that we really set in some actionable things that we can do to continue this momentum". O'Reilly also denies any wrongdoing, but the news company severed its ties with the well-known commentator.
Trump, Person of the Year in 2016, tweeted recently that the magazine had told him he "probably" would be named again if he agreed to an interview and photo shoot.

Time has disputed his account.

Football fans happy with Nigeria's group
Coach Gernot Rohr said what last month's win over Argentina has shown is that anything is possible with his young team. It will be interesting to have a good friendly (match), for example, against Serbia because they play similar football.
