I agree with what you say. But there were also worrying aspects to this programme. In the first episode, several of the girls seemed perfectly comfortable with the men taking pornographic, up skirt, shots of them. Posing in provocative underwear etc. That was before the use of any drugs. In the shopping mall scenes, one of them was quite willing to go in the changing room to "fool around". They had only met these guys an hour or so earlier !
Personally, I think that was a gross exaggeration of the behaviour of the young girls who have been caught in this type of sordid trap. But if I'm wrong, perhaps Osborne had a point ?
Aren't you confusing fact and fiction here ?

What you are describing as 'worrying aspects' were those scenes portrayed in a work of fiction. How can you believe that because it takes place in a TV series, it translates directly to real life ?

Oborne was placing a large part of the blame onto the victims of these despicable, violent crimes. Please look at the crimes the Rochdale gang (and other similar gangs) were convicted of, and the ages of the victims. They used drugs and alcohol on these girls. Thankfully the law doesn't think Mr. P. Oborne has a point.
