Muhney did not speak about the sexual harassment allegations while talking to HuffPost Canada TV

“Part of me feels this is because I've always been outspoken, and sometimes I've been too outspoken," said Muhney.
"Sometimes I've walked around with a big backpack full of hubris. That is entirely on me. CBS, Sony, and Jill Phelps are not to blame for that. If I'm going to claim to be a grown man, I have to own that. But it could be financial or story."
