As Twitchy reported Monday morning, the mainstream media finally broke its silence on the sexual assault accusations against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by Tara Reade. The paper‚Äôs reporters did a ‚Äúdeep dive‚ÄĚ into the allegations and came up empty, except for all of the ‚Äúhugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.‚ÄĚ #MeToo‚Äôs been amended so those don‚Äôt count ‚ÄĒ and we thought it was all about how the woman was made to feel.
A few people noticed that while the deep dive into allegations of sexual harassment was relegated to page A20, shadow president Biden was featured on the Times‚Äô op-ed page with a piece about how he‚Äôd reopen the economy and get America running again.
This is wild, on the same day @nytimes buried a sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden on page 20, literally the last article in the paper, they gave him the prime editorial spot in the newspaper on the coronavirus. pic.twitter.com/B88tpX3zBw

Oh. That's why The New York Times is editing the Joe Biden sexual assault story and deleting tweets. They published his opinion piece today. pic.twitter.com/lTFcsCJhu8

We all know Joe didn‚Äôt write that.
‚ÄĒ ericphillipsusa (@ericphillipsusa) April 12, 2020
A piece he didn't even write himself.
‚ÄĒ Mrs. Steve McCroskey (@WatchYerButt) April 12, 2020
No way he wrote that article.
‚ÄĒ Doctor of Sarcasm (@drsarcasm6) April 12, 2020
I‚Äôm guessing they also wrote the article for him.

I can tell Joe didn't write this because it doesn't have drool stains on it.

I‚Äôll give anyone 5-1 odds Biden did not write this.
‚ÄĒ Schwangstar (@Schwangstar) April 13, 2020
They should ask Biden any question about his column. Anything.. the title, the bulletpoints, what it‚Äôs about.. etc. He didn‚Äôt write it obviously

If you believe Joe Biden wrote this I have a zoo in Oklahoma to see you. #ElderAbuse

.@nytimes been super busy covering for China and Biden lately.

Everybody laughs, but Joe couldn't defend this for 3 minutes in the first debate, he'd be lucky to remember any of it. The more the media sets the expectation for Joe, the worse it's going to look. Joe got seriously scorched by members of his own party in softball debates.

Is the entire article just as innocuous and non specific as the lede?
‚ÄĒ Gomes (@GomesBolt) April 12, 2020
And who wrote it for him because he sure as crap ? didn‚Äôt ‚Äď and how much is plagiarized‚Ä¶
‚ÄĒ JT Fulham ‚Äď Still in third‚Ä¶ ??? (@jtf18james) April 12, 2020
So, is he admitting that the economy was on a great track before china unleashed this disease on the world?

Whoever's driving the NY Times bus is obviously asleep at the wheel. Either that, or they've long stopped giving any f***s. Their daily readers aren't savvy enough to realize these slight of wrists, & they know it. It's why they keep doing it.
‚ÄĒ Andrea Somerville (@asomer) April 12, 2020
Agreed in part.
The readers are well aware of the NYT‚Äôs chicanery, I think they simply do not care. It‚Äôs the worst parts of tribalism on display.

That rag is a joke

So we suppose the New York Times thinks this is ‚Äúbalanced‚ÄĚ coverage.
