Actor Liam Neeson argued in an appearance on Ireland's Late Late Show Friday that the cascade of sexual harassment allegations against famous men in recent months has not adequately distinguished between rape or assault and milder offenses or misunderstandings. "There is a bit of a witch hunt happening too," Neeson said. "There's some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl's knee or something and suddenly they're being dropped from their program or something." He highlighted the case of radio host Garrison Keillor, who was fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of inappropriate behavior. Neeson also said he is "on the fence" about the accusations against fellow actor Dustin Hoffman.
