(( Gil Davis is representing Paula Jones in her sexual harassment suit against President Clinton, argued last week before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Davis is also Ramona Hines' attorney, in her lawsuit against a Martinsville TV station.
One viewer questioned our motives in airing Hines' videotape of Davis talking to her about arranging a possible appearance in Playboy magazine.
"It was to be expected that the media would go after Gil Davis for daring to challenge President Clinton. What was not expected was that News 7 would be leading the charge. That your news operation would stoop this low in attempting to help Clinton is unfortunate. Character assassination is something people have come to expect from the national media. I had thought News 7 had a better sense of fairness. To align yourself with the Clinton "whatever is necessary to keep power" mentality does you no service."
Another viewer was more critical of HINES' motives.
"It appeared to me that the female involved in the above conversation was teasing and flirting with Mr. Davis. At one point she seemed to encourage him in the conversation by saying "What did I say"...I also heard her giggling in the tape. So it has yet to be proven to me that this man is guilty of "immoral conduct, etc.". Perhaps the motives of the female involved should be suspect. Another question...why did she meet with him in a hotel room of her own free will?"
