    The View's Joy Behar: It's Wrong To Attack Comedians Because 'We're Important People Right Now'

    The View co-host Joy Behar bristled, Monday, at the thought that late-night comedians should be taken to task for pulling punches on Harvey Weinstein, even if they joked for days about Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly, conservative figures who faced sexual harassment and sexual abuse allegations.

    The interaction began when another co-host, Sunny Hostin, brought up that comedians couldn't win on the subject. Last week, late night hosts were taken to task for punting on Weinstein, and Saturday Night Live faced scrutiny for avoiding the scandal altogether. When James Corden made a joke about Weinstein at a dinner Sunday night, however, he was forced to apologize.

    ďLast week everyone was saying the late night hosts didnít mention the Weinstein scandal,Ē Hostin explained. ďBut you know they were always making jokes about Roger Ailes and Bill OíReilly. SNL took a hit for not saying anything. Now you have SNL doing something. You have James Corden doing something, and now itís, Ďoh, itís in poor taste, itís too soon.'"

    Late night hosts like Seth Meyers didn't just avoid Weinstein, some of them ó including Meyers himself ó responded to criticism by challenging conservative viewers to change the channel, effectively making the issue into a "you're with the liberal Hollywood elite, or you're against us," ultimatum.

    It's wrong to be mean to late night comics who don't make fun of Harvey Weinstein, she says.
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    I would almost bet everything I own that Weinstein never harassed Joy Behar.
    I could be wrong though after all Ted Danson hit Whoopi and that's pretty amazing.
