Joe Biden said this week that anybody who believes the Tara Reade allegations shouldn’t vote for him, and judging from a new Politico story that’s been shared by CNN’s Chris Cillizza, Biden won’t have to worry about losing support from many in the national media:

A number of people whose paths crossed with Joe Biden’s accuser say they remember two things: Tara Reade spoke favorably about her time working for Biden, and she left them feeling duped https://t.co/YYjiK2iE6D

It’s safe to say the “believe all women” movement as part of the #MeToo era has been officially suspended.
Christine Blasey Ford sure is lucky she supported the right political party. This is on the “breaking news” app on iPhones right now. pic.twitter.com/nkr1v99MD2

One of those stories is not like the other.
In 2018 this was declared evidence of 'why women don't come forward.' https://t.co/coPAqxAbpo

In 2018 you would have called this victim shaming. https://t.co/h1rfMqSeMc

2020 has brought with it some major #MeToo rule changes.
Odd how the media didn't bother to cover Ford's history with the same attention to detail.
Oh wait, did I say odd? I meant predictable. #hacks

Yeah. Too bad media didn't review Ford's history in the same manner.

Journalism's about helping the vulnerable. In this case, a vulnerable Democrat. https://t.co/yBQbJnNeso

I can attest that mainstream outlets didn’t write pieces like this against Kavanaugh’s accuser. My former boss, Sen. Grassley went out of his way to condemn any threats or attacks aimed at her. The double standard is so apparent and gross. https://t.co/RAjgRQ0PFv

GorT: the left: "Do not attack the victims of sexual harassment! They need to be heard and respected"
Also the left: "Tara Reade is manipulative, deceitful, and a user"
Nice job, Cillizza. https://t.co/aazXY9B5yO

So typical to see the media establishment trash a victim to protect a white male politician.
Am I doing this right? https://t.co/syNRn59aq7
