Believe All Women - Unless They Accuse Joe Biden
The New York Times buries its own reporting on Biden’s groping.
Over two weeks after Tara Reade, a former Biden Senate staffer, accused him of sexually assaulting her, the media finally got around to tackling her and the threat she poses to Biden by calling her a liar.
The New York Times'
article dryly titled, "Examining Tara Reade's Sexual Assault Allegation Against Joe Biden" by Lisa Lerer and Sydney Ember seeks to discredit Reade's claims.
"No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting, nor did any former Biden staff members corroborate any details of Ms. Reade's allegation," the article insisted. "The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses, and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable."
Then that awkward paragraph with its mix of admissions and denials went down the memory hole.
The same Lisa Lerer who tackled Reade's allegations had sat on a PBS panel
which had previously discussed Biden's misbehavior with women, including the allegation by Lucy Flores. At the time, Biden hadn't yet entered the race, and Lerer opined that the Democrat positions on "standards around gender and consent" had shifted and that Biden had to "get right on those issues with where the party is now."
But now that Biden is the nominee, Lerer suddenly has never heard of a pattern of misconduct.
