Yikes: The New York Times Issues Statement, Calls out Biden Campaign for Lying About Tara Reade Allegation

. . .Yesterday, a memo circulated from the Biden campaign that issued talking points about the Tara Reade sexual assault allegation. One of those talking points was to claim that The New York Times had done a “thorough investigation” and had essentially debunked the claim. We saw Stacey Abrams repeat that verbatim in an interview yesterday, where she ended by stating the assault “did not happen,” another line from the talking points.

Now, the Times is pushing back on the Biden campaign and its surrogates. They issued a statement pointedly saying that their previous article should not be used as evidence against Tara Reade and that it does not say what they are claiming it says. . .

I won’t kid myself though. The Times may have felt the need to offer a correction of the Biden campaign here, but they still aren’t going to take the Reade allegation seriously. They’ll continue to cover for the former VP just as they’ve done from the beginning. The real question is whether any Democrats will break rank. Where’s Bernie Sanders, who could likely rejuvenate his campaign right now if he took Reade’s side? He’s a political coward though, so I doubt he makes that move. I wonder how his fans feel knowing they got so thoroughly played by the old communist?
