Bill Clinton’s War on Women: Rape, Sexual Harassment…(Videos)

Posted by FactReal on September 5, 2012

REMEMBER CLINTON’S SORDID PAST?
Remember how Bill Clinton and the media treated women?
Women who went on the record and publicly accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse and harassment in the 1990s were abused again by liberals and the media trying to defend their sexually depraved king, Bill Clinton. The coverage that “did exist was often skeptical, insulting and hostile, an astonishing double standard”: (Photos & emphasis added)
PAULA JONES

- Paula Jones, who accused Bill Clinton of exposing himself to her in a hotel room when she was a state employee in Arkansas, held a public press conference in February 1994, CBS and NBC ignored those charges, while ABC devoted just 16 seconds to Jones’ press conference.

As a January 29, 1998 Media Reality Check pointed out, “The rest of the media waited three months, until Jones filed suit, and the networks then did just 21 stories in that month.”

…Tom Brokaw dismissed, “It didn’t seem to most people, entirely relevant to what was going on at the time. These are the kind of charges raised about the President before.”

…in June 1994, anchor Charles Gibson wanted to know: “Why does anyone care what this woman has to say?“…Newsweek editor Evan Thomas…derided Jones as “some sleazy woman with big hair.” (This was on the May 7, 1994 Inside Washington.)

KATHLEEN WILLEY

- In the case of Kathleen Willey, who said Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office while President, the networks gave minimal coverage to that story when it was broke by Newsweek magazine in late July 1997.

On July 30, 1997, the CBS Evening News aired a story, but managed not to mention Willey by name…ABC delicately approached the subject…

CBS gave it one minute on the July 30 Evening News, with brief items on the July 31 CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News. Willey eventually became a big news story when CBS’s 60 Minutes interviewed her in March 1998, during the Lewinsky scandal.

“Wow! That was something,” Today co-host Matt Lauer exclaimed on March 16, 1998, reacting to the 60 Minutes story. There was no introspection as to why it took Today and other outlets so long to cover the charges.

JUANITA BROADDRICK*

- In the case of Juanita Broaddrick, who publicly came forward to say Bill Clinton raped her while he was the Arkansas Attorney General and a candidate for Governor, the networks offered weekend coverage in March 1998, when the charge surfaced in a court filing by Paula Jones’ attorneys. NBC interviewed Broaddrick for a Dateline special in January 1999, but the airing was delayed until February 24, 1999, after the end of Clinton’s impeachment trial. [...]

During the period of February 19-28, as NBC prepared to finally air its Dateline special, ABC virtually ignored the controversy. World News and Nightline skipped it. Good Morning America allowed two brief mentions. This Week briefly discussed it.

CBS allowed just one story on the February 20th Evening News.

Considering that NBC had the scoop, it’s not surprising that the network offered more coverage. While Nightly News ignored it…
