The NY Times is in full election mode. On the one hand, the Times is devoting enormous resources toward blaming Trump for the Wuhan coronavirus damage, as if Trump declaring a national lockdown in February, as the impeachment trial was coming to a close, would have been feasible politically or justified based on what was known at the time.

A former staffer of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden claimed he sexually assaulted her in 1993. Biden stated that we must believe all women after Christine Blasey Ford accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Will Biden believe his former staffer? Will the left stick to their rules and believe her?

New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey dropped the bombshell on Harvey Weinstein two years ago with a scathing article filled with accusations from actresses. They described horrific alleged sexual misconduct by the once-powerful movie producer, which led to the #MeToo movement. Kantor and Twohey detailed their investigation in a new book called She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement. One shocking detail came to light in the book. Victim rights attorney Lisa Bloom, the daughter of Gloria Allred, sided with Weinstein. She offered to help him ruin the reputations of the women who accused him of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape.

Who could've foreseen the consequences of a movement that promoted believing all women over examining facts and evidence? From campus kangaroo courts to the nationwide #MeToo movement that sought to out serial sexual predators protected by their rank and wealth, #MeToo brought with it consequences of all stripes -- positive, but mostly negative.

New Yorker Magazine is nothing if not consistently inconsistent. In the fall of 2018, writer Jane Mayer and co-writer Ronan Farrow wrote a hit piece for the magazine on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that was disguised as investigative journalism. The article detailed an allegation of sexual misconduct made by Deborah Ramirez, who was a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale in the early 1980s.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has come under fire recently for inappropriate behavior, which led him to release a video to tell people he "will be more mindful of personal space in the future." Just hours after the release, The Washington Post reported that three more women came forward "about encounters with him that made them feel uncomfortable." That makes the total seven women.

With a long video history of creepy touching and nuzzling women and young women in front of the cameras, Joe Biden now has four women who accuse him of doing similar things off camera. There is little doubt this has hurt Biden because it throws off his plans for a smooth campaign announcement -- if he announces. It also cements his nickname for the campaign: Creepy Joe.
