After the numerous sexual harassment accusations, it seems that the flow doesn’t stop.
In light of this, as the The Daily Caller has reported, the media have made a shocking step, by acknowledging the sexual harassment allegations facing former President Bill Clinton.
Now more and more sexual harassment victims have been encouraged to speak up and share their stories with the world. And considering the fact that a number of Clinton’s alleged victims were unheard and unacknowledged because of his power and influence, now some members of the media have decided to finally listen to their stories.
The most prominent of his alleged victims are Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley, and Juanita Broaddrick. These women have struggled for a long time to make their voices heard, and in the past they were continually silenced by the Democrat Party or by Hillary Clinton.
According to Paula Jones’ statement, the former president harassed her at a hotel room in Arkansas where she used to work. Allegedly Mr. Clinton tried to approach her a number of times, but after he wasn’t successful, he exposed himself and demanded oral sex.
The other victim, Kathleen Wiley also said that Clinton attempted to make an advance to her, and that he even groped her several times while in the Oval Office. He is also know for receiving oral sex there from Monica Lewinsky, who was a young intern, at the time.
However, the worst of all allegations against Bill Clinton reportedly came from a woman name Juanita Broaddrick, who accused him of rape while he was serving as Attorney General in Arkansas. She took it to Twitter back in 2016, where she stated : “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.”
The media had disregarded all these stories until now.
Chris Hayes, the MSNBC host said “…that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against [Bill Clinton]”
Caitlin Flanagan, the editor of The Atlantic, even wrote an article about it called “Bill Clinton: A Reckoning”. In it she accused everyone who defended him as being “on the wrong side of history.” She also said that “The Democratic Party needs to make its own reckoning of the way it protected Bill Clinton.”
These unexpected acknowledgements and the support from the media really surprised Juanita Broaddrick who posted a tweet on her Twitter account saying, “New York Times opinion ‘I Believe Juanita’. Hell has definitely frozen over.”

Perhaps the time has finally come that these women can have their voices heard, without being silenced by politics. If the former president really did sexually abuse these women then he should be held accountable for his actions once and for all.
