On Monday, CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted that the women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault and harassment weren’t treated the same as the women accusing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore:
You know something? And maybe it's the southern accent that reminds me of this, but I think we are, and we’ve seen some of this in the press. There was a story in The Atlantic called "Bill Clinton: A Reckoning." Chris Hayes said something the other day, and other people have. But the accusers of Bill Clinton back in the 90s were never given the credence, and treated with the same respect that these women are being treated.
And I think that there is something to be said about how society has evolved since then, but, in addition, it’s hard not to look back at that period and think: "You know what? The media treated those women poorly."
