NY Times deletes tweet about sexual assault after Biden campaign complains

I wanted to get the facts on the woman who has accused Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexual assault. I have a rule such that I don’t believe women who make accusations without involving the police. But this accuser has involved the police, and she also has many, many witnesses. After we get the facts, we’ll see how Democrats in news media are protecting their boy Biden.

This article from Current Affairs had a pretty good description of what we know about the accuser:

And I remember he just had me up against the wall and the wall was cold. It happened all at once. The gym bag, I don’t know where it went. I handed it to him. It was gone and then his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then he went down my skirt, but then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers. And he was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me. He said several things, I can’t remember everything he said. I remember a couple of things. I remember him saying first before, like as he was doing it, “do you want to go somewhere else?” And then him saying to me when I pulled away, when he got finished doing what he was doing and I pulled back and he said, “come on man, I heard you liked me.” And it’s that phrase [that] stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might’ve said [to make him think that]. And I can’t remember exactly, if he said “I thought,” or “I heard,” but it’s like he implied I had done this.

A different Current Affairs article reports that groups that help women who allege sexual assault won’t help Reade.

According to a report by the Intercept, in January of this year Reade approached Time’s Up, a project of the National Women’s Law Center designed to provide legal and public relations assistance to sexually abused women. Time’s Up declined to help Reade… Notably, the PR firm that Time’s Up uses to help publicize women’s stories, SKDKnickerbocker, is run by Anita Dunne, a senior adviser to Joe Biden.

The article notes that “believe all women” writers from Salon and Jezebel don’t believe this woman. I’m surprised they didn’t slut-shame her or mansplain to her that rape is OK for Democrats.

If you only watch CNN or MSNBC to get news, then you still haven’t even heard about the story.

Fox News explains:

For 18 days… Reade’s claim was not covered by the biggest media outlets… CNN, MSNBC and the three broadcast networks did not offer any on-air coverage or articles on their websites about the alleged assault. The New York Times and The Washington Post, two papers that dedicated extensive reporting to sex assault allegations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, were also mum on the matter.

In addition, in seven televised interviews Biden has done since Reade came forward with her allegation, he was never asked about it. This includes three interviews on MSNBC, two appearances on CNN and appearances on the Sunday morning news shows on ABC and NBC. Prominent anchors like Anderson Cooper, Chuck Todd and George Stephanopoulos never questioned the presumptive Democratic nominee, instead focusing on the pandemic and President Trump’s handling of the crisis.

The New York Times wrote a report about the accusation but they had to remove anything damaging to Biden from their report.

Fox News reports:

The Times raised eyebrows on Sunday after it deleted a tweet and tweaked its report about the 1993 accusation made by former Biden staffer Tara Reade, which originally read, “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 Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.”

No correction or editor’s note was made in the report…

Why was the report modified to cover for Biden?

On Monday, Times media columnist Ben Smith sat down with his boss to discuss the report and pressed him on several criticisms of the report, including the edit.

“I want to ask about some edits that were made after publication, the deletion of the second half of the sentence… Why did you do that?” Smith asked.

“…I think that the campaign thought that the phrasing… made it look like there were other instances in which he had been accused of sexual misconduct…” Baquet responded.

I can imagine that if the mainstream media “journalists” were present during the Biden sexual assault, they would have cheered him on. “Hold her down and force yourself into her body! We’ll lie about it later to cover for you, don’t worry! She’s just a stupid, weak female employee!”

Now, if you ask the journalists who write the newspapers and talk on TV, they will all say “we shouldn’t believe her because she’s accusing a Democrat” or “you have to let Democrat men rape because we don’t want to lose abortion and gay marriage”. Remember, this is the party that voted for Bill Clinton. Harvey Weinstein was celebrated by Democrat politicians for his many, many donations to the Democrat party. Jeffrey Epstein gave huge donations to Democrat candidates, and Democrat politicians loved him too.  They don’t have a problem with rape, when it’s their guy doing the raping.

  1. Go to CNN’s search bar and type in “Tara Reade.” It comes up with 0 results. CNN ran more than 700 articles about Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, and reporters at every major mainstream media outlet told us how important it is to believe all women, even if there is no evidence to support their claims. Yet, along comes a woman with significantly more evidence against Biden than Ford had against Kavanaugh and CNN doesn’t run a single article. Hmm….
