I am not a member of the Donald Trump fan club, but if one criticizes, one also must give credit where credit is due:
Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said that the two accountants who were in charge of the envelopes when the wrong winner for best picture was announced, have, as you wrote, “been permanently removed from all film academy dealings” [“2 PwC accountants won’t return to Oscars,” News, March 2].
In contrast, when host Steve Harvey made a similar blunder at the Miss Universe Pageant, Trump, a former rights-holder of that event, tweeted that Harvey was a “great guy” and, “Things happen. It’s live television.”
One point in his favor.
