Well, that’s awkward. CBS This Morning on Thursday offered a report on the “pervasive sexual harassment in the politics world.” The tone and message of the segment was clear: This must be taken seriously and stopped. Yet, later in the show, co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell delighted at a smiling picture of fellow co-host Charlie Rose and… Bill Clinton, a man accused of harassment, groping and rape.
Earlier, O’Donnell informed, “Some of California’s most influential women are speaking out against what they call pervasive sexual harassment in the political world.” Reporter Bianna Golodryga added, “Enough is enough. And California is home to some of the most powerful women in politics including its first House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.”
Yet, given that the of the segment is “pervasive” sexual misconduct in politics, mentioning Bill Clinton and his accusers (Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey etc.) would have been the honest thing to do.
Instead, the co-hosts cheered Rose appearing with the ex-President at an award show in London. Gayle King hyped, “Look at this group, guys, with Charlie along with special guest at the ceremony. That’s former President Bill Clinton.”– READ MORE[contentcards url=”https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2017/10/19/awkward-after-story-persuasive-sexual-harassment-politics-cbs” target=”_blank”]
