Why is Barbara Walters defending Woody Allen?

This morning on The View Barbara Walters and co-host Sherri Sheppard got into a heated exchange regarding whether Woody Allen molested his step daughter. Walters says that she knows Allen and he is a loving father, but Sheppard says we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Allen ended up marrying his adopted daughter. Sheppard contends that Allen has shown that he is attracted to young girls. Allen is currently up for a number of awards and this story is re-surfacing. The question is should these allegations be factored into whether he receives awards for his directing skills? Share your thoughts.
