Liberal Media Talking about Bill Clinton's Rape Allegations with a 2016 Mentality to Believe the Victim First

Hmm this is an interesting development coming from the left.
So far, this issue has mostly been raised by conservative media and Republican politicians like Prudhomme-O'Brien. But it's a substantive issue worthy of coverage from non-right-wing outlets as well. There really are multiple accusations of sexual assault against Bill Clinton, accusations that have too often been conflated with his much better-established and much less morally concerning history of adultery. Are the women making these accusations survivors who deserve to be believed, to borrow Hillary Clinton's language? Or, as she later insisted, have their accusations all been found to be baseless?
This article goes on to talk about Juanita Broaddrick and how her rape allegation would be treated quite differently if it hadn't come to light in the 1990s. The article disproves some of the "attack the victim" stuff that the Clinton-istas pulled back in the day. It's interesting that this issue really is cognitive dissidence with liberals. Believe the victim unless she is raped by Clinton then look the other way.
