LOS ANGELES — First it was Ryan Lochte lying about being robbed in Rio, and now it’s Donald Trump’s startlingly lewd videotaped comments. For the second time in less than two months, TV personality Billy Bush is part of a major news story — but this time, he’s coming under fire.
Although Bush was working for entertainment news show “Access Hollywood” when he and Trump exchanged crass, caught-on-video remarks about women in 2005, he’s now a co-host of NBC News’ ”Today” and, observers say, may have violated standards of journalism as well as civility.
