Amidst all the coverage Thursday devoted to KABC Radio host Leeann Tweeden’s sexual misconduct claims against Democratic Senator Al Franken (Minn.), the most important segment took place on CNN’s The Lead as Tweeden sat down for an emotional 33-minute-long interview with host Jake Tapper. 

Tweeden stood out for both her courage and the passion in denouncing sexual misconduct, but Tapper’s questioning and reassurances that she had “nothing to be embarrassed about” also made for both compelling and necessary television.
