Founder of The Hill and Politico, and Former NYT Washington Bureau Employee: I Don't Want Any Investigation Into Biden Because Proof That He's a Sexual Predator Could Damage His Chances Against Trump, Which Is The Only Thing That Matters

Unbiased seekers of truth.

Brave firefighters.



A piece from the New York Times published Monday showed published letters to the editor regarding a May 2 piece from the editorial board titled "Investigate Tara Reade's Allegations." Reade has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her while she worked as a Senate staffer in the early 1990's.

Martin Tolchin, a co-founder of Politico and The Hill as well as a former member of The Times' Washington bureau, wrote in and admitted that he didn't want an investigation into the allegation. Tolchin wrote that this was simply because it could damage the chance to beat President Donald Trump, adding that he didn't even want justice for Reade if her allegation proved true.


"I totally disagree with this editorial. I don't want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden," Tolchin wrote according to the NYT. "I don't want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance."

...

"Suppose an investigation reveals damaging information concerning his relationship with Tara Reade or something else, and Mr. Biden loses the nomination to Senator Bernie Sanders or someone else with a minimal chance of defeating Mr. Trump," Tolchin wrote. "Should we really risk the possibility?"

"I don't want justice. I want a win."


At least he admits it. This is of course the media's driving passion; they just continue to pretend. Slightly.
