It’s been nearly a week since former Joe Biden staffer Tara Reade leveled credible accusations of sexual assault against the presumptive Democrat nominee for president, yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN have yet to report on the troubling story, according to Newsbusters.
Reade first described the 1993 alleged assault in an interview with lefty podcaster Katie Halper, alleging that Biden pushed her against a wall, lifted up her skirt and penetrated her with his fingers. When she pulled away, Reade says, he said that he thought she “liked’ him.”
She said he later angrily told her that she was “nothing” to him.
Lest you blame the coronavirus pandemic for stealing the spotlight, Newsbusters points out that “CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews” in the past week and none of the hosts deigned to ask a single question. CNN hosted a live, hour-long town hall on Friday, and Reade’s explosive allegations were not brought up once.
“It’s demoralizing to watch the patriarchy in America continue to silence the voices of so many, but the patriarchy’s day is coming. We will not go silently into the night,” a noted Democrat strategist tweeted.
That Democrat strategist was none other than Biden’s senior 2020 campaign advisor Symone Sanders—in September of 2018.
She was talking about the flimsy allegations of sexual assault against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. read more
