    Greetings,

    I found this article during a search of something unrelated altogether. Although that remained unsuccessful, I found this which to say the least is disturbing. Shows a bit about media bias perhaps as this is the first I have heard of this.

    I wouldn't read too much into this. Its not like he's been accused by several women, only one as far as I can make out (unless there's a huge coverup). The papers probably chose not to report it as a single unsubstantiated accusation doesn't really hold much weight.
    You could have a point. But I find her death more strange. Althought sexual accusations come and go but this one is actually dead. And I don't raping multiple people is prerequiste for the story being plausible. Such a huge deal was made about Monica Lewinsky and Clinton, Arnold and his women and this one died down before even seeing any light.

    But yeah I guess its open to debate.

    died of a gun shot wound to the head, sounds like a wholesome lady....

    because Clinton had evident and admitted sexual relations with an intern at the White House on more than one occasion. to compare that to the accusation of a probably insane crack-addictic prostitute is almost as bizarrely ridiculous as the allegation itself.

    not really. as the lack of ANY real media coverage suggests. i also found this quite amusing...

    "Rupert Murdoch...and Greg Dyke of the BBC have chosen to keep their political masters happy" haha, Murdoch and Dyke taking orders from the political elite? lol.

    Any women can be raped what ever type of women she is perceived to be. I think the report should have been published. I don't think there is a cover up of any sort but I think it is interesting that it didn't at least reach the tabloids here as they seem happy to print anything even unsubstansiated things. Bush has definately got off lightly.

    I also think that it is really odd that no newspapers reported it. Usually there all over a story like this whether its true, false or from the imagination of some madman. The fact that nothing at all was really reported and that most have never heard of this, shows the work done to protect Bush. Even the accusations could of caused untold damage.

    of course. but it gives us an idea from what background this ALLEGATION was made.

    tabloids want to appeal to the masses. publishing reports from mad women claiming the president abducted, drugged, raped and beat her and her husband and then personally threatened to kill them, doesnt even have the air of plausibility about it.

    Bush has definately got off lightly.
    from the tabloid press or rape charges?

    She didnt win, she only accused him, and I think the $50 million damages she wanted would be enough of an incentive to try.

    There was no reason to publish this - is it surprising a man as well-known as the president of America is accused of rape? Celebrities are accused of rape with alarming frequency, often by people who want attention and are fixated with the person, a similar event could have happened in this case.

    It would be unfair on Bush to publish details of an unsubstantiated case.
