Barbara Walters has come out swinging against critics of her new The View  cohost, Jenny McCarthy  .

“The criticism of Jenny McCarthy has been unfair,” Walters

told Koward Kutz on his Fox show, MediaBuzz.

Kurtz quoted Walters as saying “Jenny McCarthy brings such light and fun to the show,” and asked if she felt she had to speak up for McCarthy because of her controversial views about childhood immunizations.

“I think it was at the root of some of the criticism,” Walters acknowledged, adding “it’s not a subject that we have discussed on The View.‘”
