Skip to comments.Don’t Let The Washington Post Get Away With Memory-Holing Its Anti-Kavanaugh Campaign

Ruth Marcus and others at the Washington Post who led the effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh's life based on unsubstantiated allegations know that what they did was evil.
The Washington Post has a problem. The newspaper led the massive effort against the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by publishing and relentlessly hyping a completely unsubstantiated allegation of sexual assault against him.
Now, the paper is leading Democrats efforts to bury a similar, if stronger, allegation of sexual assault against Joe Biden. To accomplish this dramatic turnabout, the paper is collectively trying to rewrite history, pretending the allegation against Kavanaugh had more basis than it did while also pretending that the allegation against Biden has less basis than it does.
The Posts anti-Kavanaugh operation had powerful divisions in both the news and opinion departments. Its worth looking at both.

The actions of the Washington Post continually make it irrelevant. They are nothing but an arm of the DNC.
A nice think about Mollie’s article is that is recognizes Ruth Marcus as being particularly dishonest.
How about memory holing impeachment?
Wonder if the Post will misremember Blasey-Ford’s friend who was threatened when she sided with Kavanaaugh ,not Ford.....
? I’m not sure what you mean
Oh the irony. Those who wanted Kavanaugh crucified for decades old, un-substantiated claims are now rallying around Biden for the same kind of charges. Those who dismissed the Kavanaugh claims as unproven and irrelevant now want Biden drawn and quartered for the same kind of charges.
They put everything down the memory hole. When this outbreak was raging they could have cared the less. They were too busy with impeachment.
They want everyone to forget that.
Wrong. I don't want Biden drawn and quartered, I simply want the Left to be honest - and fair - with its reporting. I know, ain't gonna happen.
Should the right be doing the same? Fox and OAN defending Biden and saying the claims, disturbing as they may be, are decades old and unsubstantiated?
Very detailed and comprehensive article. Stellar journalism by Mollie Hemingway, providing a brilliant example of how it’s supposed to be done.
I haven’t forgotten. That corn eater from Iowa was supposed to start an investigation and then Linda was supposed to pick up the ball from there. Still waiting. A total travesty.
Just like the NYT, no-one should be reading this s^^t.
Linda say a lot, especially during election years.
“Now, the paper is leading Democrats efforts to bury a similar, if stronger, allegation of sexual assault against Joe Biden.”
This is how we will know that the DNC has decided to stick with Biden. If the DNC decides to toss him, the Washington Post will suddenly discover the rape allegations against Biden.
We need to email letters all these msm outlets asking why they are ignoring the sexual allegations against Biden. Not saying they are true but why not getting the same play as if he were conservative. There are 7 women. See https://www.thecut.com/2020/04/joe-biden-accuser-accusations-allegations.html
most disturbing one:
Alexandra Tara Reade told the Union that Biden touched her several times when she worked in his U.S. Senate office in 1993. The incidents, in which she said Biden would put his hand on my shoulder and run his finger up my neck, allegedly occurred when she was in her mid-20s. Reade told the Union that her responsibilities at work were reduced after she refused to serve drinks at an event a task she believes she was assigned because Biden liked her legs.
Reade reportedly spoke to U.S. Senate personnel about what was going on, and Bidens office allegedly found out. She left his office two months later, after only nine months on the job. Reade told the Union that she didnt feel sexualized by the way shed been treated, instead saying she felt ornamental, like a lamp: Its pretty. Set it over there. Then when its too bright, you throw it away.
In March 2020, Reade expanded on her account, telling the podcaster Katie Halper that Biden sexually assaulted her in the spring of 1993. Reade reiterated her story in interviews with the New York Times the following month, telling the paper that when she dropped off a gym bag with him one day he pushed her up against a wall and started kissing her neck, before sliding his hand up her shirt and ultimately up her skirt. It happened at once. Hes talking to me and his hands are everywhere and everything is happening very quickly, she recalled. He was kissing me and he said, very low, Do you want to go somewhere else? Reade said Biden penetrated her with his fingers before she was able to pull away. When she did, she says he appeared confused. He looked at me kind of almost puzzled or shocked, she told the Times. He said, Come on, man, I heard you liked me. Through a spokesperson, Biden strongly denied this account.
Reade also said Biden reprimanded her. He pointed his finger at me and he just goes: Youre nothing to me. Nothing, she said. Then, he took my shoulders and said, Youre OK, youre fine.
Ruth Marcus has been a lying Democrat POS for DECADES.
