Although the horrific accusation from E. Jean Carroll, a longtime advice columnist for a women’s fashion magazine, came out Friday, not one of the main TV networks — NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox — talked about the accusation on their Sunday political talk shows. Back when Trump was running for president, the networks couldn’t get enough of the salacious sex stories that appeared about him every few weeks, including Bridget Sullivan, the former Miss New Hampshire who said he once hugged her “a little low” on her back.
So why the collective media silence when Carroll made her alarming accusation? No one knows for sure, but here are a few thoughts on why the story crashed and burned before it ever got off the ground.
First, Carroll is, in a word, odd. When CNN on Monday decided to interview her for its “New Day” morning show (no doubt realizing by then that it was missing an easy “bash Trump” story), she retold the tale she first alleged in New York magazine. Throughout the retelling of what she said was a somewhat violent rape, she laughed and smiled.
She said she met Trump at a Bergdorf Goodman store in New York about 23 years ago and that he recognized her as the Elle advice columnist. Trump asked her to help him pick out something for a “mystery” girl, she said, adding that he shouted, “lingerie!” Trump, she said, found a “see-through body suit” and told her to go put it on. Carroll, who said she was “spinning a comedy scene in my head,” said maybe he should try it on.
