A media veteran who co-founded both Politico and the Hill said that he doesn’t want an investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden, but instead just wants “a win” against President Trump.
Martin Tolchin responded to a New York Times editorial board piece from Friday that urged the Democratic National Committee to investigate the allegations that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee sexually assaulted a former Senate aide, Tara Reade, in 1993. …
Tolchin, who also worked for the New York Times for 40 years, issued a letter to the outlet published Monday that said an investigation into Reade’s allegations would only hurt Biden’s chances of beating Trump in November.
“I totally disagree with this editorial. I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden,” Tolchin, 91, wrote. “I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance.”
A frank admission from someone instrumental in bringing the US “news” and shaping western opinion — shaping your opinion. Imagine how corrupted our view of the world has been because it is brought to us by people like this, who decide what we get to hear about and how it is framed.
