The women who have accused former President Bill Clinton are angry at the media in their coverage of the dismissal of Bill O’Reilly from Fox News over sexual harassment charges. They believe the media is being hypocritical and applying a double standard.
In an exclusive interview with Aaron Klein of Breitbart News, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones unleashed their fury against the media for dismissing their claims of sexual assault by a former governor and president.
“I have no idea whether the accusations against Bill O’Reilly are true or not but I would like to ask, ‘Where in the world were all these people when Bill Clinton’s victims came forward with more serious accusations?'” Broaddrick said. “‘Why is Bill Clinton given a pass over the other Bills?’ I would truly like to know because I will never understand it.”
Broaddrick claims that Bill Clinton raped her twice in a hotel room in 1978 and that Hillary Clinton was involved in covering it up. Since that time, one witness has come forward to substantiate her claim.
Kathleen Willey, who alleged that Clinton sexually assaulted her during his first term as president, told Klein, “Though I should not be surprised, I am still astounded by the hypocrisy of the members of the Democratic Party and media. While the revelations of the many scandals of Bill Clinton’s administration are stunning to this day, the left continues to ignore his many, many crimes such as rape, sexual harassment, and lying under oath. They have swept his transgressions and crimes under the rug for many years, only to refer to him as a ‘randy boy.’ There’s nothing ‘randy’ about him. He is a predator and a pervert.”
“The charges against Bill O’Reilly are serious, but where has he been heard regarding these accusations?” Willey added. “He has been judged, tried, and convicted by the Murdoch team. We will never know if these accusations are true or false. The least the powers that be at Fox could have done was to give him a forum on which to respond and say good-bye to his many fans. He helped build Fox News from the ground up. In the meantime, the MSM and the liberals continue to overlook Bill and Hillary’s ongoing lies and cover-ups.”
Paula Jones, who claims that Clinton sexually harassed her, told Klein, “I’m disgusted once again about how hypocritical the liberal media can be. Those insane women on The Viewhave the nerve to actually show their feelings on this issue and not see the same resemblance only worse about their man, Bill Clinton! I can’t say that any of this is true with Bill O’Reilly and none of them can say it either!”
“I’ve not heard that Bill O’Reilly ever raped a lady or showed his tiny peeper to a lady either, like Bill Clinton has,” she added. “Yet they want to crucify Bill O’Reilly, and think that Bill Clinton has actually paid the consequences. Clinton was only impeached and kept his job… He was rallied around by the whole media and liberal Hollywood! Bill O’Reilly has been fired from his job and is being railroaded for much less than what Bill Clinton has ever done!”
“The liberals take these women who make these claims seriously, yet they called me a bimbo, trailer park trash, and the list goes on and on?” she continued. “Bill Clinton was getting his tiny wiener sucked under the Oval Office desk, where was the outrage to that? As long as it’s a liberal, unethical, baby killer who does all this then it’s perfectly okay, but if it’s a conservative against their evil issues then they crucify them until they are gone. Pathetic!”
While many in the media didn’t take the women serious with their allegations against Clinton, but instead, joined in attacking them, in several instances they had to change their tune.
For instance. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell’s report in which she called Juanita Broaddrick’s claims “discredited” had to receive a retraction after Broaddrick’s attorney wrote a letter demanding it.
What’s most interesting is that when the story broke, it was on NBC’s Dateline and according to Lisa Myers of NBC, who conducted the interview with Broaddrick, “Nothing has come up since that story was reported that in any way undercuts what Juanita Broaddrick said.”
The View also apologized for referring to those who accused Clinton of sexual assault as “tramps.”
There are many other reports of the media’s double standard when it comes to covering for one of their own.
The women are not necessarily saying that allegations against Bill O’Reilly are true or that he should be defended. Claims against Bill O’Reilly have been circulating for years now. However, there is clearly a double standard going on, and there should be some justice brought to bear in the case of Slick Willy and the claims of sexual assault.
