The thing isn’t that Alec Baldwin has intensified his defense of Woody Allen by comparing Dylan Farrow‘s accusation to that of Mayella Ewell‘s in To Kill a Mockingbird, but that Movie City News has characterized Baldwin as “seized by the need to comment.”

In other words, MCN apparently believes that Baldwin’s opinion is unfortunate, impolitic and possibly ill-considered. Or something along those lines. No offense but Hollywood Elsewhere believes that Movie City News’ characterization is cowardly and contemptible, especially if you consider the facts.
