The headline here is actually even worse than I’m making it sound.
Trump allies highlight new claims regarding allegations against Biden – Washington Post
Some allies of President Trump pointed Monday to new claims by a woman who said she was told about sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden decades ago…
That opening sentence alone is a work of art, finding multiple ways to weaken the news by first filtering it through the “Republicans pounce” lens, then “was told about sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden decades ago”.
That’s exactly the opposite of the way that Jeff Bezos’ social justice tabloid covered the Kavanaugh case.
Framing the revelations (revelations is how WaPo would describe developments in the Kavanaugh case) that Reade had told others about Biden’s behavior in the 90s, including the Larry King interview, as a “Republicans pounce” thing is despicable. But it’s how the media covered for Bill Clinton. Of course the uncomfortable truth is that the first folks at the bat are Sandernistas.
Michelle Goldberg from the New York Times is not exactly a Trump ally. Sanders supporters see this as their last chance.
Reade’s story originally got publicized by Sanders people. But the Washington Post can’t admit that, so it piles lies on lies in the hopes of convincing its readers to ignore the allegations as a vast right-wing conspiracy.
