Tucker Carlson said in his monologue that sexual harassment allegations should be taken seriously, but not to the level of a "witch hunt."

Carlson said that anonymous allegations of misconduct always lead to abuses.

"If you're going to name the accused, you ought to name the accuser," he said. "News organizations are not courts."

He compared the allegations against Harvey Weinstein to the recent "sexting" scandal involving Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas).
