[See NewsBusters for more.] On Monday's installment of MTP Daily host Katy Tur finally discovered Tara Reade's allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against her former boss and presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden. Unfortunately for viewers who may have been previously unaware of the allegations due to the media going radio silent on the issue, Tur waited until just moments before President Trump's daily COVID-19 press conference to talk about the allegations, meaning viewers were not able to get the complete story.

Despite having the entire 5:00 hour and other MSNBC hosts having all day, Tur waited towards the end of the show to ask NBC reporter Ali Vitali, "We did just get a two-minute warning from the White House and people are starting to file in. So, if I have to interrupt, I do apologize. What do we know about this allegation?"
