Gloria Allred: Women in Petraeus Scandal Are Victims of 'Very Unfair' Media 'Double Standard'
News Busters ^ | 11/20/12

Posted on 11/20/2012 12:16:47 AM PST by BunnySlippers

Here's something you don't see every day: a prominent liberal accusing the mainstream media of having a "double standard" and treating people in a "very unfair" manner.

But that's exactly what happened on Wednesday, when feminist lawyer Gloria Allred told Caroline May -- a political reporter with the Daily Caller website -- that the women in the sex scandal surrounding the resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus "are being depicted in a negative and stereotypical manner."

Known for representing women in high-profile legal cases, Allred stated in an email that Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' former mistress, and "whistle-blower" Jill Kelley, whose "flirtatious" communications with Marine General John Allen are also being investigated, are victims of media coverage "which appears to be very unfair to all of them."

Uh...Gloria, by all appearances, they're sluts. If not traitors. What's so 'negative' about that? It is what is.

Are we supposed to hold up women who would spend their dalliances with married men in sensitive (security-wise) positions as some sort of 'heroes'? We're on the American side, not so sure about you, especially after the BS you pulled on Herman Cain with Buy-a-lick..

Especially if they’re operatives of the regime or perhaps a foreign regime, even. Unlike in Benghazi, the FBI sure was HOT to search her home!

How does this woman always land on the wrong side of every issue? That, in itself, is a true talent!

Interesting how she backed off doing her ‘day before election’ hit on Romney because 0bama assured her ‘the fix was in so your services aren’t needed’.

By the way, where was she when every fool with a microphone, printing press or blog was attacking Governor Sarah Palin 24/7 for the last four years?

Fail. What the heck did I write? I'm going to bed.

Should be:

Gee, she's a little late, isn't she? I was expecting her to pop up soooner - like within the first day or two this scandal came out. You're slipping, Gloria.

Gloria,

those women are not teens. They are old enough to shoulder the responsibility of their actions. End of story.

Why work if you aren't getting paid? Save the 'victims' to trot out later--as if anyone in any of this is an 'innocent victim' except the falsely accused.

I was disgusted by the way the media used innuendo to bring Herman Cain down, and a lot of people here bought in.

Sad.

Most of DC is screwing around, and the media just look the other way or wink--like they did over Clinton.

“they are women! adults! not naive little girls.”...

They’re also smart in a bad way, deceptive and not necessarily well-meaning.

How’dya like to be married to or have to live with THAT?

some studies indicate fully one birth in seven to a married couple the husband is not the biological father.

A wise husband stops after the sixth child.

The tomfoolery is programmed to keep the genetic pool healthy in a tribal society. Your uncle should not be your father-in-law and your husband too.
But the USP driver is fair game.

You can’t stop the wolf from eating sheep, nor the sheep from eating grass or the grass from growing from the earth.

Wolves will be wolves, sheep will be sheep, grass will be grass and women will be women.

Hoping for anything more is fanciful!

Was All Red a staunch defender of Bill Clinton’s “bimbos” ?

"the women...are being depicted in a negative and stereotypical manner."

Ah, possibly because that's just how they acted?

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

The media finally calls a pig a pig and this broad complains. What this broad should be complaining about is how the present administration under pays women versus their male counterparts. Why is the silence so deafening? Where is the outrage? When will the anointed one be held accountable?
