CNS Reporter Attacks Trump Sexual Harassment Accuser

Just how much of a pro-Trump stenographer is reporter Susan Jones? She's attacking a woman who has accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment as a possible liar and definite publicity hound.

Jones writes in a Feb. 20 article:

President Trump, in one of his Tuesday morning tweets, expressed irritation with the continuing media coverage of Rachel Crooks, a woman who's made repeated media appearances to complain that Trump made improper advances when she approached him years ago in the lobby of Trump Tower.

The Washington Post ran a front-page story on Crooks on Tuesday with the title: "Trump accuser keeps telling her story, hoping someone will finally listen." (Apparently no one has taken Crooks seriously because she's made so much out of so little so long ago.)

Crooks has "made so much out of so little so long ago"? We're willing to wager that neither Jones nor any other Media Research Center employee ever said that about, say, Paula Jones.

Jones is not done with the sneering, disrespectful attitude:

As the Post tells it: "It was just a dreadful kiss, or at least that's what she kept trying to tell herself to quiet the confusion that had grown out of that moment, turning into shame, hardening into anxiety, an insecurity until nearly a decade later when she first started to read about other women whose accusations sounded so much like her own."

The article goes on and on, portraying Crooks as a woman who suffers from an anxiety made all the worse by the publicity she has sought and the hateful responses she has received.

As for Crooks' oft-repeated lament, the newspaper says she "has to keep asking herself: Will it ever make a difference?"

Crooks and more than a dozen other Trump accusers want Congress to investigate Trump's alleged sexual misconduct.

Oh, and let's not forget this tidbit: Crooks is now running for a seat in the Ohio Legislature.

Jones' highly biased article is headlined "Enough: Trump Fires Back at Female Accuser, 'A Woman I Don't Know'." It's not clear whether the "enough" is a reaction from Trump or from Jones herself.

Jones' huffy dismissal of Crooks is right in line with how her MRC colleagues treat women who accuse conservatives of sexual misconduct. Whether it's Trump, Roy Moore, Clarence Thomas or any given Fox News personality, all conservatives must be defended no matter what, apparently.
