Only One Online Media Outlet Covers Explosive Allegation That Joe Biden Forcibly Penetrated an Unwilling Staffer

Deb Heine has a good summary of the story, if you missed it.

And if you were watching the Corporate Media, you did miss it.

Obviously, the liberal Creampie Production Outsourcers of Fox News refused to give any time to the story.

News from Fox News? You must be joking!

Anyway, here's Deb Heine. Note that the accuser told friends about the attack at the time of the attack, which the media has previously considered strongly corroborating evidence.

When the allegation is made against a Republican, that is.

And yes, neoliberal corporate Fox News follows this rule too. They are no better than CNN.

A former Senate staffer for Joe Biden has credibly accused the Democrat of sexual assault, but you wouldn’t know it if you relied in the corporate media for your news.

Tara Reade described the alleged sexual misconduct in a graphic interview this week with lefty podcaster Katie Halper.

...

She said that she left her job on bad terms in August of 1993 after she refused to serve drinks to Biden “because he liked her legs.”

“My life was hell,” Reade said. “This was about power and control. I couldn’t get a job on the Hill.”

...


A friend of Reade's at the time confirmed to the Union that Reade relayed the story shortly after the incidents occurred.

...

"We were alone and it was the strangest thing," she said. "There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall."

Reade noted that she was wearing a business skirt with no stockings because it was hot at the time. "He had me up against the wall, and the wall was cold," she recalled, saying Biden's "hands were on me and underneath my clothes."

Reade struggled to maintain her composure as she described what happened next. "Yeah, ah--he went--um--down my skirt but then up inside it and he--ah--penetrated me with his fingers," she recalled with increasing emotion...


She added that "she felt sick" because after she had pulled away, Biden "looked annoyed" and said something that didn’t want to share because it was so awful.

"I must have looked shocked," she said, because Biden then grabbed her by the shoulders and said, "You're okay. You're fine" and then walked away and "went on with his day."

More at the link.

She also says she opposes Trump.

The only media to cover this were the Bernie- Sanders-supporting progressives of The Hill's online show.


Note that a lot of "conservative" blogs -- like Hot Air -- have also refused to give an atom of air to the story.

Do consider blitzing FoxNews with letters, emails, and calls asking them why they're following MSNBC's lead, yet again, in embargoing this story.

Maybe also embarrass "conservative" pundits for running interference, yet again, for the Democrats.

At least Reason magazine has the balls to ask if Joe Biden believes all women, as he has previously claimed, or if he's making a special one-time (?) exception.

Also note that Reade is not a Republican, but a Democrat and former Elizabeth Warren supporter.

A year ago, Reade--who supported the campaigns of Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.)--attempted to come forward with stories of sexual harassment in Biden's offices.
