[See NewsBusters for more.] It is possible to devote extensive coverage to a major Democratic scandal. CBS proved it over the last three days. Since Sunday morning, Gayle King on various network programs interviewed the two women accusing Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor for over 33 minutes. In the same span of time, ABC and NBC offered no coverage to the claims of sexual abuse and rape against the politician. King talked to Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson about what they allegedly endured at the hands of Fairfax. On Tuesday, Watson recounted her experience at Duke University in the year 2000: “He forcibly sexually assaulted and raped me.... I tried several times to get up and was pushed back down, held down.... If you have to hold someone down, it's not consensual.”
