The media is just the communications arm of the Democrat Party.
That’s why women who accuse Republicans, no matter how flimsy their claim or how obviously unhinged they may be (e.g. E. Jean Carroll) are treated like martyrs and saints whose accusations can’t be challenged, while women who accuse Democrats are dragged through the mud. These media antics have nothing to do with the facts and are all about political utility.
We don’t know what if anything happened between Tara Reade and Joe Biden, but since Biden is the Democrat candidate, Reade must be destroyed. And the latest agent of destruction, Politico’s Natasha Korecki has run off an unapologetic hit piece.
‘Manipulative, deceitful, user’: Tara Reade left a trail of aggrieved acquaintances — Politico
No burying the lede here.
Who’s Natasha Korecki? She’s the Politico hack assigned to covering Joe Biden and reporting all sorts of “inside” scoops from the Biden campaign.
Here’s a sampling of her work, “Biden gives Trump a nickname: ‘Clown’” and “Inside Joe Biden’s battle plan”.
And a tweet, “Here’s a pan of line outside Biden’s Detroit event tonight. Stretches around high school and down a couple blocks. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker are you join @JoeBiden tonight.”
Journalists embedded in a campaign are usually somewhat compromised as part of their job. They form relationships with people inside the campaign. That’s why you’re not supposed to use them for deep dives into scandals about that candidate.
And you sure as hell don’t use them to write hit pieces on a sexual assault accuser.
Korecki’s piece screams of being opposition research from the Biden campaign. And Politico isn’t even being subtle about its intended purpose.
There’s no way to know what happened between Reade and Biden, but it’s all too obvious that the media is repeating its worst misbehavior from the Clinton era.
