The media went wild over unfounded and loose allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. However, when one of their own was accused, more credibly, than Kavanaugh they buried it.
To date, Joe Biden has faced zero questions about the sexual assault allegations levied against him.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Joe Biden has been asked 81 questions in over two hours worth of media interviews since a former staffer in his U.S. Senate office accused him of sexual assault three weeks ago. He hasn’t fielded a single question about the allegation.
Biden has sat for 10 interviews with major news outlets since March 24, when his former aide, Tara Reade, accused him of pinning her against a wall and penetrating her with his fingers in 1993 when she was a staff assistant in his office.
None of Biden’s 10 interlocutors have asked him to comment on the allegation. On Sunday March 29, for example, Biden sat for a wide-ranging nine-minute interview with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press during which he was asked about the coronavirus response, sanctions on Iran, whether Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) should drop out of the Democratic primary, and President Donald Trump’s approval rating—but not Reade’s allegation. He also managed to avoid questions about Reade’s allegation from George Stephanopoulos the following Sunday, a primetime interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, an appearance on NBC’s Today Show with Craig Melvin, and two interviews with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.
Biden himself has yet to address the accusation from Reade, who formally filed a criminal complaint with the Washington, D.C., police last Thursday. Biden spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield said in a statement that Reade’s allegations are false and the incident never happened.
The Biden campaign and the networks who interviewed him since the allegations have both failed to respond to a request for comment on the matter.
