In her first interview promoting the final season of House of Cards, Wright told Savannah Guthrie that the cast and crew were “all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened” by the sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey. “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle,” Wright said. “I didn’t really — I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.” But as David Zurawik points out, Guthrie failed to ask Wright about a CNN report, sourced to eight current and former House or Cards staffers, that the set of the Netflix drama was "toxic" with Spacey’s abusive and predatory sexual behavior. "One of journalism’s primary jobs is providing clarity by trying to resolve such contradictions — not serve up the kind of questions that allow someone who was in a position of authority and responsibility on that set to avoid taking the contradiction on," says Zurawik. "Wright was a director, executive producer and co-star. She was not as powerful as Spacey, but she had enough power to say something if any part of what CNN alleged about that set was true."
