Earlier this week The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway noticed that the completely unbiased reporters of CNN had a grand total of ZERO stories about Joe Biden accuser Tara Reid posted to their website, while there were nearly 700 articles about Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
However, the number of stories at CNN.com about Tara Reade is no longer zero, but it appears they’ve been grappling with how to spin it:
Democrats grapple with questions about Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden – CNNPolitics https://t.co/1MMSEwUVAb

That makes ONE:
For those keeping score at home:
Aha! Now it's
Christine Blasey Ford: 678
Tara Reade: 1
Jake has now covered it, and that's that. https://t.co/3ES5gcGbQL

But don’t anybody dare question CNN’s objectivity.

It takes time to come up with a spin.
How about you guys make Biden "grapple with questions" about this. Is that too much to ask of our political journalism elite?

So far everyone but Joe Biden has had to grapple with these allegations. It’s a good thing he hasn’t given any interviews to CNN or anyone else in the last 3 weeks or this would look like a massive failure of the media. https://t.co/jvKuiWaOan

Narrator: They aren't really grappling with it.
They are simply trying to figure out how to memory hole it. https://t.co/hF2BK448tp

The lib media sure has been doing plenty of “grappling.”
Bullcrap. Democrats aren't grappling with this. They're just not mentioning it in the hopes that it will just go away.

And many don’t know because the MSM isn’t talking about it

Weird how they never grapple when a Republican is accused
Any wholly unverified fantasy claim of punch spiking & gang rape gets the CNN/NYT seal of approvalhttps://t.co/wbtlaUWFql
Do you see your bias & simply believe your cause is so vital fairness & facts don't matter? https://t.co/pfndkiZ8Si
