When a series of women stepped forward to accuse Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault shortly after President Donald Trump nominated him, the princes and princesses of propaganda in the “mainstream media” covered every word of their allegations as ‘gospel.’
In fact, the MSM coverage was essentially wall-to-wall. One ‘expert’ after another was trotted out like a conga line of miscreants to claim, without direct knowledge or corroborating evidence, that the women must be believed simply because women never make such things up.
Only, that’s exactly what happened.
In short order, one by one, the women were exposed as fraudsters and liars. So were their backers.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) even referred the accusers — four in all — to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution, for lying about Kavanaugh and fabricating their allegations, though a year later, Grassley was forced to inquire about the referrals because like a lot of misdeeds in Washington, those disappeared down a memory hole.
You may remember that this is when the Left’s #MeToo movement was born; we shall never forget Christine Blasey Ford’s (fake) allegations; Kavanaugh will forever be an abuser, and women must be believed!
Except now, when the allegations of sexual misconduct and outright assault have been leveled against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden.
There are no Leftist celebrities to be found, anywhere, supporting the accuser, Tara Reade. No Democratic lawmakers. Hardly any MSM. She’s completely alone, save for real media, like us, who are not ‘taking up her cause’ but are merely reporting the facts as they have presented.
John Nolte at Breitbart News reports:
Tara Reade has absolutely no chance of earning any attention or sympathy from the corporate media over her increasingly-credible sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden.
She has no chance whatsoever, and it’s useless and pointless and a waste of energy for any of us to complain about this injustice. It is what it is. Sorry.
He’s right, of course. He goes on to point out that not only is the establishment media “hopelessly corrupt and driven by the poison of extreme partisanship,” he writes, but those same outlets have, for decades, covered up Democrat misbehavior and allegations of sexual misconduct. Meanwhile, the MSM blows every allegation against Republicans and conservatives, no matter how baseless and flimsy, way out of proportion, even when they come “from a ridiculous liar like Christine Blasey Ford,” he added.
It’s true. Those of us who were cutting our journalistic teeth during Bill Clinton’s presidency remember well how the establishment media bent over backwards to cover for his sexual escapades, even when it became impossible to do so. And never mind that it was a sexual escapade — with intern Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office — that led to Clinton’s impeachment because he lied about it under oath.
Nolte also brought up an example of when the establishment media went overboard in propping up phony allegations of sexual abuse against a conservative around the same time Clinton was running for the presidency:
In 1991, when Anita Hill launched her ludicrous allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, the media assured us we had entered a whole new era of American life, an enlightened era where it was no longer okay for powerful men to engage in sexual misconduct — and that era lasted right up until the new rules threatened to hurt a Democrat.
Enter Bill Clinton.
The fact is, Nolte is right: Tara Reade is going to get coverage from the media, just not the media — the mainstream corporate Left-wing anti-Trump media, which accounts for the majority of major outlets.
Because she has accused a man from the Democrat Party.
