MRC's Double Standard on Sex Allegations Continues
Topic: NewsBusters

Tim Graham complains in a May 24 NewsBusters post how Time magazine's Nancy Gibbs described sexual misbehavior allegations against Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dominique Strauss-Kahn as "an abuse of power and a betrayal of trust" but said Bill Clinton was, in Graham's words, " miraculous politician who deserved forgiveness."

Graham seems to have forgotten that his employer worked to minimize groping allegations against Schwarzenegger when they surfaced in 2003. As we documented, rather than portray it as, say, "an abuse of power and a betrayal of trust," the MRC insisted that nothing he did was as awful as what Clinton was accused of, and Graham himself complained that the story surfaced in the first place.

Graham huffed that Time "didn't care to investigate the claims of Juanita Broaddrick in 1999," ignoring that Broaddrick has a history of contradictory statements that undermine her story.

Graham's refusal to criticize Schwarzenegger severely undercuts his moral authority to criticize Democrats, then or now.
