ZERO COVERAGE: Media Makes Sexual Allegations Against Biden Disappear

Eric Scheiner | April 1, 2020

It’s been nearly a week since former Joe Biden staffer Tara Reade leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them.


According to NewsBusters, in the twelve days following the first reports of Christine Blasey Ford’s assault claim against Brett Kavanaugh, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows churned out 305 minutes of coverage. Only a scant amount of that airtime — less than five minutes — mentioned that none of the witnesses named by Ford would confirm her story.

Since Reade’s allegations came to light, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and in the 41 questions Biden was asked, not one was about Reade’s allegations.

The only thing that can disappear faster than these allegations in the mainstream media - is the left’s standards when it comes to ‘reporting.’
