The talk show hosts who told jokes about the sexual harassment problems facing former Fox Newsers Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly are being called the “hypocrites of late night” for not going after the powerful Hollywood mogul Weinstein, who was accused of decades of sexual harassment Thursday in a bombshell New York Times story. The story dropped at around 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, hours before shows tape, but that hasn’t stopped late-night hosts from telling jokes on events that happened after that time. As The Daily Beast points out, both James Corden and Jimmy Fallon have appeared in Weinstein films. Weinstein appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2015.
