Double Standard: No Media Mentions of New Evidence in Biden Sexual Assault Allegation

Posted: Apr 26, 2020 3:20 PM

After new evidence emerged corroborating Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against former Delaware senator and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, the major news networks failed to ask a single question about it on the Sunday morning shows. 

Two people rumored to be on Biden's potential VP list, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) and Stacey Abrams (D-failed politician), were not asked a single question, despite Sunday appearances on ABC and NBC, respectively. Speaker Pelosi also made the rounds on Sunday, where she too wasn't asked a single question about the new evidence. The speaker did say she supports releasing prisoners, however, which would only increase the number of sexual assaults across the country. 

The media's double standard on sexual assault allegations is glaring. The "believe women" crowd is replaced with the "ignore women" crowd when the allegations are directed against a Democrat, especially one who's about to be handed the Democratic presidential nomination. 

When Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being confirmed by the Senate, the media ran wild with unsubstantiated, implausible allegations of sexual misconduct. Julie Swetnick, who had zero corroboration and kept changing her story, dominated the news cycle. Her disgraced attorney, Michael Avenatti, appeared on the Sunday morning shows and was given 35 minutes by CNN to push the false accusations. The false accusations made by Kavanaugh's accusers received 9/11-style coverage, but not a single question from the media when the accusation is leveled against a Democrat. 

The media is already ignoring evidence that Joe Biden lost his mind. Now they're ignoring evidence of his alleged sexual assault.
