I think allegations against him were made public before this period, in which the Weinstein stuff was also coming out and the #MeToo stuff started in earnest, but he somehow got in front of it before it really caught fire.

The doc doesn't bury him at all really, but his contributions aren't mentioned on the same level as the Steves or Smigel. It is more mentioned in passing, but it's that moment where they bring up the Fallon incident that makes me think the filmmaker was taking a position without clearly stating it.

That said I liked it, I didn't quite realize that The Ambiguously Gay Duo and the Tom Brokaw-Gerald Ford skit were repurposed from the show onto SNL.
