ANew York Times article titled “Examining Tara Reade’s Sexual Assault Allegation Against Joe Biden” is the newsmaker’s sad attempt to look as though they have any journalistic integrity. That, and that they are willing to take a “deep dive” into a not-so-flattering topic regarding their darling presidential hopeful Joe Biden. Only one problem; their efforts completely backfired.
The website Twitchy busted The New York Times for updating the article and removing a very critical sentence. Initially, the words read:
No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of our reporting, nor did any former Biden staff corroborate Reade’s allegation. We found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Biden, beyond hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.
Yes, you read that right. In the very same sentence that the Times attempts to rectify Biden’s reputation, they, in fact, confirm it. Likely the eagle eye of twitter users who brought attention to that very bizarre sentence caused them to panic and they removed the most meaningful part of the sentence to 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.
Conveniently after the saying, they found “no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden” they removed the very information the confirms sexual misconduct…by Mr. Biden. A word of advice to the Times – save yourself the panic and deleting headaches and drop the charade of a news agency capable of criticizing Democratic presidential nominees.
In the very same sentence that the Times attempts to rectify Biden’s reputation, they, in fact, confirm it.
Even more indicative of the Times’ lack of moral compass is how they discuss Biden’s alleged victim, Ms. Tara Reade. Liberals are self-proclaimed women’s rights advocates and suggest it is never acceptable to question a woman who says she was victimized. Just look at their coverage of Justice Kavanaugh. But a woman who says she was wronged by a Democrat, particularly one they hope will beat their enemy President Trump, is a different story:
On Thursday, Ms. Reade filed a report with the Washington, D.C., police, saying she was the victim of a sexual assault in 1993; the public incident report, provided to The Times by Ms. Reade and the police, does not mention Mr. Biden by name, but she said the complaint was about him. Ms. Reade said she filed the report to give herself an additional degree of safety from potential threats.
The very next sentence reads as a threat, not concern: “Filing a false police report may be punishable by a fine and imprisonment.” Sounds like the Times is unambiguously on the side of the victim. An additional example of treatment for Ms. Reade, the Times wrote that she “also filed a complaint with the Senate in 1993 about Mr. Biden; she said she did not have a copy of it, and such paperwork has not been located. The Biden campaign said it did not have a complaint.” There you have it, the insinuation that if a victim cannot find a piece of paper from nearly twenty years ago, case closed. The piece then goes on to say Ms. Reade supported Bernie Sanders in the California primary last month, and brings up President Trump’s sexual harassment allegations, saying he “boasted about his mistreatment of women.”
