Tucker on Serial Sexual Misconduct Allegations: 'News Organizations Are Not Courts'
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).

Barton, a grandfather who sent a lewd photo to a woman he was seeing while going through a divorce, was embarrassed when the pictures surfaced in the media earlier this month.
Carlson said nobody is accusing Barton of sexual abuse, but that "many media outlets treated Barton like the heir to Harvey Weinstein."
"If anything, it is Barton's former girlfriend that could be guilty of a crime," he said, referring to so-called "revenge pornography."
The right to face your accuser is the cornerstone of justice. We don't allow ppl to accuse others of most crimes anonymously. Why do media outlets allow it in sexual harassment? Not everyone accused of sex offenses is guilty not every accuser is telling the truth #Tucker @FoxNews

Carlson said he himself was the victim of a false accusation of misconduct, but he ultimately was able to clear his name
