Here’s How the Media Will Fix Biden’s #MeToo Problem. By Larry O’Connor.
Pressure is mounting for former Vice President Joe Biden to finally address the allegations made by Tara Reade, a former staffer when Biden was a senator in the mid-1990s.
Up until now, the legacy media has formed a bit of a barricade around the Democrat’s presumptive nominee for president by simply ignoring the story altogether, a privilege they did not afford now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process. …
The double standard in how media outlets treated unfounded, uncorroborated allegations against Kavanaugh and their outright denial of the mere existence of the much more credible and detailed allegations against Biden borders on the criminally absurd.
How the left/media will play this blatant hypocrisy:
Biden will grant an exclusive, one-on-one interview with a friendly, female journalist (I mean, there are many to choose from.) The interview will probably be for 60 Minutes (Leslie Stahl, I’m thinking) and the interview will be pre-recorded so the news outlet will have the opportunity to make Biden look his best.
Biden will have well-rehearsed and tested answers to questions about Reade’s allegations. His wife, Jill Biden, will be sitting next to him and she will do much of the heavy lifting. Both Bidens will pretend that this whole ordeal has been such a burden and they will thread the needle of dragging Reade through the slime while still maintaining that women should be believed, just not this woman.
And five to seven minutes later it will be over. And that will be that.
No other news outlet will feel compelled to raise the issue. No other Democrat will need to answer to Ms. Reade’s allegations. They’ll all have the same rehearsed answer. “Joe’s already spoken to these allegations. It’s old news. Nobody cares. Move on.”
And the media will, in fact, move on.
This is how they do it. It’s how they’ve done it in the past. It’s how they’ll do it this time.
The job of the media is to make the left look good.
