🚨 POLL: Is the NY Times ‘Fake News’?
According to a report from Breitbart News, the New York Times is under heavy criticism for its alleged effort to air the allegations of sexual misconduct against former Vice President, Joe Biden in a positive light.
After Tara Reade, a former Biden staffer in 1993, came forward with the allegations earlier this year and filed a criminal complaint in Washington DC last week, the News York Times released a report that read, “no pattern of sexual misconduct by Biden, beyond hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.”
In contrast, the Times lent credibility to the claims of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh.
In 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. The mainstream media shared her story and hyped up the allegations.
A Times editorial piece was released declaring that Kavanaugh “wasn’t believable” despite his protested innocence.
More from Breitbart:
The Times also reported that Kavanaugh had been in a bar fight in college — though he was never arrested — to lend credence to uncorroborated claims of drunken behavior. The reporter was an outspoken opponent of Kavanaugh’s nomination.
In September 2019, the Times reported that a new alleged Kavanaugh victim existed — one into whose hands Kavanaugh’s friends had pushed his penis at a drunken party at Yale University. But the story soon fell apart. First, the Times promoted it with an unfortunate tweet that claimed: “Having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun.”
Then, as Breitbart News’ John Nolte noted, the Times‘ central claim fell apart — after the sensational headlines had already gone around the world: “[W]hat the Times didn’t tell its readers is that the alleged victim of this alleged assault, the very person into whose alleged hand the alleged penis was allegedly thrust, does not recall anything about the penis incident and does not want to talk to the media.” The Times had left that out of its account, and was forced to add a correction.

In contrast, the Times not only went out of its way to find “no pattern” of misconduct by Biden, but edited its reporting to remove evidence of precisely such behavior. Kavanaugh enjoyed no such presumptions of innocence or editorial deference.
