NYT edits Biden sexual assault coverage; deletes references to past allegations

The NYT edited a para in its article on the sexual-assault allegation against Biden by his ex-staffer Tara Reade, minutes after it was published. The edited para was without any references of past accusations by seven women that Biden touched them inappropriately, which were carried in the previous version, and reads: ’No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting’.

The New York times are a joke and what they did this morning deleting the tweets about Joe Biden's behavior around women at least for me shows that the media is a arm of the Democrats

There are several key aspects to this story: 1) In the age of #MeToo, it seems curious that mainstream media - WaPo, NYT, CNN, MSNBC, other TV news networks - have let the story slip... 2) some of which have interviewed Biden since the story broke but haven't even brought up the issue. 3) Right-wingers like Reason pounce on NYT, accusing them of being pawns of the Democratic Party machine, playing favorites for the corrupt left - just further evidence of Democrats' double standards.

The VICE article is written in a manner so misleading that it's actually appalling. They try to discredit her by saying that none of the people she worked with remember the assault, but also state that she only mentioned that he had harassed her in the workplace; she didn't specifically mention that particular assault. The people she DID actually tell about the assault back up her story, but the article is written in a way to purposely gloss over that fact. Pretty vile journalism in my opinion...

The hypocrisy is delicious. Thank you to the same people that made #MeToo for revealing it for what it was and killing it. 👏👏

They can’t remove Bidens kid grooming/groping videos from my memory. When he whispers dating advice into a kids ear you know something ain’t right.

Why are the people she said she told about the encounter saying they have no recollection of her ever telling them this🤔🤔 This is how you do it, you INVESTIGATE. You the know the things Republicans hate.

I have completely lost faith in the NYT. They have been consumed by their hatred of Trump and it infuses every aspect of their journalism. We need honest impartial journalism, now more than ever.

Wow...this has not been a good year so far for the New York Times and its paper thin pretense of journalistic ethics and objectivity. I wonder if there is still anyone legitimately willing to argue that the mainstream News Media (most major newspapers and news networks not named after a furry four legged animal) have a clear left-wing bias?

Certain media outlets have been avoiding this for a long time now. This should have been made front and center during the primaries. Now the Democrats have chosen a weak candidate at a time when Trump is vulnerable. They would rather lose to Trump rather than giving Bernie a shot. Now we are looking at 4 more years of the worst president in USA history.
