The Associated Press, in promoting its most recent interview with Joe Biden’s accuser Tara Reade, deleted some of its older interviews with Reade from 2019 and failed to report on them at the time, as confirmed by Breitbart.
The most recent interview was published with a headline claiming that Reade “didn’t use sexual harassment” in the language of the formal complaint that she filed against then-Senator Joe Biden shortly after the alleged assault took place in 1993. Reade has since taken to Twitter to claim that this statement is false.
However, Reade had been previously interviewed by the same outlet last year, with the AP admitting that it “declined to publish details of the 2019 interviews at the time because reporters were unable to corroborate her allegations.” The AP also admitted that it has since deleted some of the older interviews with Reade, ostensibly “in keeping with the reporter’s standard practice for disposing of old interviews.”
Reade’s accusation of sexual assault by Biden has gained traction in recent weeks, with such corroborating evidence as numerous associates of Reade confirming that she told them about the alleged assault at the time that it happened, as well as a clip of Reade’s late mother calling into Larry King’s show in 1993, anonymously, to ask for advice on her daughter’s having been forced out of a job in Washington with a “prominent senator” due to problems she was facing.
In addition to creating mounting evidence against the already scandal-plagued Biden, the mainstream media’s harsher treatment of Reade’s allegation has led to accusations of hypocrisy and double-standards when compared to the false sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which the media reported on much more heavily despite all of them ultimately being debunked.
