Default Staffer accuses Biden of assault

https://www.yahoo.com/news/former-se...022955519.html


I know since Joe is a beloved Democrat, this is probably a non-story.

I personally believe it is probably a non-story. I just thought I would post it, because we know that if Biden was a republican, it would be a huge story

The article Dog Man points to is from April 12...Two days ago...

THIS article is from March 31st...Over a full two weeks ago...

Liberal media totally ignores Joe Biden sexual assault allegation

Quote:
When professor Christine Blasey Ford accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of having sexually assaulted her, without substantial corroboration or evidence, the liberal media made it the biggest national story for an entire month. It culminated in a dramatic Senate hearing, nearly derailing the conservative judge’s nomination. Now, Joe Biden wants to be president. There won't be any hearings to force the issue, but he too faces a similar allegation of sexual assault.

In fact, the Democrats' presumptive 2020 nominee faces an allegation that would have taken place after his elevation to public life, and the specific details of the charge against him are both better corroborated and more serious than the ones Blasey Ford brought forward.
Surely, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, and others would make a point of covering such a thing, wouldn't they? True, we are currently amid the coronavirus crisis, but surely there's room for more than one story?

Nope. They’ve pretty much ignored the story entirely.


Reason journalist Robby Soave investigated the matter in detail, only to find zero mention of Tara Reade or her accusation, which she detailed in a recent podcast, across many of the most prominent liberal media outlets. Soave reports that “CNN conducted a virtual townhall event with the candidate last Friday. Reade's name didn't come up, and it has never appeared at CNN.com. At NBC, it's the same story: Chuck Todd interviewed Biden but didn't ask about the allegation.”
You'd also expect the usual suspects on the #MeToo movement to be screaming about this, but same thing...Virtual crickets...

WOW! I did not hear anything about it before.

Maybe one of our resident lefties can explain this stark double standard.

I doubt it. However, you didn't stipulate a logical or believable explanation so it should be fun seeing them try.

Maybe another woman will pop up saying something about Trump, they will be all over that!

Former MSM host now Youtuber Krystal Ball is not a resident leftist here but at least she's consistent in the calling out media on this.

Krystal Ball takes apart feminist smears of Joe Biden accuser
"Krystal Ball talks about the mainstream media's total disregard for Tara Reade's Joe Biden #MeToo allegation, instead pointing to so-called red flags about Tara's story."

Krystal Ball: NYT CAUGHT covering up Joe Biden #MeToo allegation
"Krystal Ball slams The New York Times' coverage of Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden."

Krystal Ball: Alyssa Milano REVEALED as a #MeToo fraud
Krystal Ball tears into notorious Kavanaugh hearing attendant, actress Alyssa Milano, for her hypocrisy on the 'believe women' movement, after Milano dismissed Tara Reade’s story in public interviews.

"Democracy Now" like a day or 2 ago interviewed Tara Reade about her story... but again it's weeks after the story been well known in media circles.

will it mean anything to die hard democrats, or TrumpHaters? Nope.
Just like the women who accused Trump and Clinton were ignored and or called liars. A large portion of voters across the board don't really care how many woman their beloved candidate abuses. Or simply choose not to believe their guy capable of such a thing.

Yep, that seems about right. And poor Tara is a hardcore progressive Bernie Supporter.

I guess this is a wake up call to female Democrats, they WILL NOT accuse another Democrat of sexual assault! Ever!

If they do, they will be slandered by the Mee Too Gals. I wonder who is behind this phenomena?

I really do not know if this accusation is true or not; and I would prefer to give the man the benefit of the doubt.

But there is a glaring double standard here: About a year-and-a-half ago, the Democrats refused to give (then Judge) Kavanaugh the benefit of the doubt...

sorry to post another 1 of these youtube videos with Krytal Ball and Sagar---
But this one sums up the whole MSM problem and makes it perfectly clear, with the NYTimes ADMITTING that they used a different standard with Judge K accusations vs the Biden Accusations.
And covers the fact that the NYT admits that they actually REMOVED a line of the story that the Biden Campaign told them that they didn't LIKE.

Interestingly the host here seem to think that the NYT leadership and staff are such blind partisans that they don't see the problem with any of it.
Personally, i think that's PART of of the NYTs (and other major MSM) problem but I suspect that there's more as well.

Krystal and Saagar: NYT blatantly ADMITS cover-up at Biden campaign request
