When the Harvey Weinstein news broke, and in the days that followed, the silence from late night hosts was deafening. One of those hosts, Seth Meyers, tried to explain why it’s taken so long to speak up:
"I was not prepared to talk about something as tricky as sexual assault in a way that felt appropriate that quickly" https://t.co/ytr37sepjw

Any takers on that one?
Translation: I needed to make absolutely sure it was safe to say bad things about one of our own. https://t.co/QVqA0smKHT

That sounds about right. Meyers’ excuse set off BS detectors:
Look at that! He really IS a comedian! 😂😂😂 https://t.co/YuYkZB6pAK

Hey @sethmeyers: you lie like a terrorist at Gitmo.
You had your face buried in Weinstein's tushy. https://t.co/61up1rlj30

It's not tricky, it's wrong. Every time. What a spineless dolt. https://t.co/2GpMaKtuk2

Bullshit. These dudes are johnny-on-the-spot when the story involves someone who has zero impact on their industry. https://t.co/6VHFRmI1fk

You do realize the things you have said in the past are still accessible online, right? pic.twitter.com/P06CDwP5Jq

To quote you, "OH, REALLY?"
It took you less than 3 days to address Trump's "grab 'em by the pussy" remarks, @sethmeyers.
Get fucked. https://t.co/afiWZnKnWn
