Is the dam breaking on the Joe Biden sexual assault case? On Thursday, ABC finally gave in and covered the latest. On Wednesday night, liberal host Chris Hayes featured the story in depth for over eight minutes. Keep in mind that, as of Tuesday morning, the whole MSNBC network only had 4 minutes and 39 seconds. Hayes admitted that during #MeToo there have been moments “when we have heard about accusations against someone that we find ourselves desperately wanting not to believe.”
Almost three weeks after she went on the record with her sexual-assault allegations against Joe Biden, The New York Times and The Washington Post have issued their own investigative reports on Tara Reade, who briefly worked for Senator Biden on Capitol Hill in 1992 and 1993. The networks are still delaying. Top editors say hey, we're not "political actors." Come on.
Almost three weeks after a woman accused presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault, The Washington Post on Monday finally noticed the story and reported it on the front page. However, the 3000 word article offered extreme skepticism about the accuser that is not often shown if the alleged perpetrator is a Republican.
From June 1 through August 31, the networks devoted 838 minutes of airtime — nearly 14 hours — to coverage of President Trump personally, and the spin of his coverage during these three months was 90% negative. Meanwhile, the 21 Democratic candidates shared 187 minutes of evening news airtime this summer, less than one-fourth of that of Trump alone, with spin that was friendlier than their coverage of the President.
Unfocused rage filled the hosts of The View Wednesday, as they accused President Trump of everything from “squelching” patriotic “dissent” from Ilhan Omar, to being a part of Jeffrey Epstein’s child rape scheme, to killing the planet with insecticides. After playing the press conference yesterday where freshman Democrat representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley sounded off on Trump, even calling for his impeachment over tweets, co-host Sunny Hostin gushed her approval.
The media that eagerly cry “sexism” openly advocates for its own brand of sexism. In a Vox interview posted on July 2nd, advice columnist E. Jean Carroll stated that “the world is a very, very merry place without men.” According to Carroll, who has also recently accused President Donald Trump of rape, men are so terrible that they should be sent to a “secret place” for “special retraining” while women are left to rule the world.
On Sunday’s MediaBuzz, Fox News Channel host Howard Kurtz interviewed Sinclair’s Full Measure host Sharyl Attkisson on a variety of topics, including the media’s overreaction to “joking exchanges” between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20, but the pair primarily focused on the collapse of “neutrality and fairness and ethical standards” in the age of Trump.
On Sunday's Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter aired a four-minute fraction of his 22-minute podcast interview with author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, who alleges Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room at some point in 1995 or 1996. He left out this preachy moment from the very end: "It is always a great time to reevaluate and talk about the relationships between men and women, and power of men in this society. And it does seem like the Trump presidency is one long class about the patriarchy."
As per usual for MSNBC, facts were not necessary on Thursday before the night two of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate. Host and Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Nicolle Wallace falsely claimed that there’s never been a presidential “candidate to be credibly accused of sexual assault as violent as the rape described by E. Jean” before Donald Trump. Moments earlier, Wallace offered another whopping, insisting that the “[t]he Republican Party is dead” despite currently holding the White House, the Senate, and a Supreme Court majority.
During Wednesday’s Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee accused NBC’s Chuck Todd of “dropping the ball” by letting President Trump “off with softball questions about where he’s going to build his library without once mentioning his many accusers” during his sit-down with President Trump, which aired on Meet the Press Sunday. Bee had harsh words for Todd and others in the media, whom she slammed for getting “tired of talking about how the President did sexual assault a bunch.”
Washington Post political reporter Amber Phillips jetted right past objectivity on Wednesday and ranted about the lack of outrage over author E. Jean Carroll's allegations of sexual assault by Donald Trump in a dressing room from the mid-1990s. In the cover story of Thursday's edition of the Post's free tabloid Express, the headline was this: "Last week, E. Jean Carroll became the 16th woman to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. And Washington shrugged."
In an almost five-minute rant Tuesday night, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell tried to rationalize how Senator Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump Jr. could possibly support the President. O’Donnell’s conclusion was fear: “In the peculiar chemistry of Trump world, hate and fear sometimes combine to create public love and adoration. That seems to have happened to both Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump Jr.”
On June 21, New York magazine published a shocking cover story, an excerpt from the new book by author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, titled What Do We Need Men For? Carroll described suffering a sexual assault in a Bergdorf Goodman department store dressing room. The alleged assailant is named Donald Trump. When did this occur? She vaguely guesses it “has to be in the fall of 1995 or the spring of 1996” because of what they were wearing.
On Tuesday morning, New Day slammed President Trump for the unsubstantiated claim that he sexually assaulted E. Jean Carroll in the late 1990s. On Monday night, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper interviewed Carroll to try to get her side of the story. The hosts refrained from airing the portions that may not portray the President’s accuser in the most appealing light.
Journalist E. Jean Carroll is making sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump, dating from the mid-1990s. Initially many journalistic outlets held off reporting her claims, which caused anger in left-wing social media circles. The New York Times editor-in-chief Dean Baquet has issued a groveling apology for not giving the thin allegations more intense play. The Times had a far different reaction in 1999, after Juanita Broaddrick came forward with her story of being raped by Bill Clinton. When it was Clinton being accused, the paper lamented the rush to judgement by other outlets. When it’s Trump, the paper’s editor lamented his own paper’s failure to rush to judgement.
If you are a woman, and accuse any notable Republican of sexual assault, you will immediately become the darling of the liberal media for at least a day no matter how little evidence there may be to back up the allegations. Over the last few days, the press have paraded around gossip writer E. Jean Carroll, who, in her new book, accused President Trump of raping her in the dressing room of a New York City department store in the 1990s.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper interviewed E. Jean Carroll on Monday, a woman who has accused Donald Trump of assaulting her in a dressing room back in the ‘90s. The interview, at times, took weird turns, including when Carroll described the reaction many have to the word rape as “fantasies” and “being sexy.”
All three networks Tuesday morning covered the sexual assault allegations by Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll against President Trump, with NBC being the only network of the three to just do a brief on the story. However, the networks omitted the accuser’s very odd behavior and comments during an interview on CNN last night with Anderson Cooper, despite ABC and CBS showing other clips from that interview.
On Monday morning’s airing of CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota spoke with President Trump’s latest sexual assault accuser, author E. Jean Carroll. Carroll, who was on the show to promote her new book, detailed the account to Camerota. Camerota pushed Carroll to implicate Trump many times, and repeatedly led Carroll down a narrative that she wanted told.
Friday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell showed his support for Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll. Carroll accused President Trump of raping her in a department store in 1995, in an article that came out in New York Magazine Friday. O’Donnell and the liberal media quickly ate up the allegations without any skepticism, with O’Donnell spending over half of his hour-long program on the story.
