In an age where sexual harassment is dominating the spotlight, has Bill Clinton’s media Day of Reckoning finally arrived?
Michelle Goldberg’s op-ed in Tuesday’ New York Times, “I Believe Juanita,” marks another crack in the ice of the liberal media’s cover-up of Clinton’s shameful, and shamefully dismissed, sex-harassment escapades.
“Juanita” is Juanita Broaddrick, who in 1999 raised a credible allegation that she was raped by Bill Clinton in 1978, when he was attorney general of Arkansas. Broaddrick was demonized by Democrats and ignored by the media. (Could there be a play on words going on here with “I Believe Anita,” as in Anita Hill, the accuser of Justice Clarence Thomas? Hill is not mentioned in Goldberg’s op-ed.)
It’s a fairly big step from a fiercely pro-abortion Democratic defender like Goldberg. But she still can’t stop blaming the “right-wing,” as shown in the text box, “Coming to terms with Bill Clinton and right-wing disinformation.”
Goldberg suggested why the ice around Bill Clinton’s reputation may be getting thinner.
