One-time Biden accuser now in the 'safe' hands of Russia

By Froma Harrop / Creators.com

With her wild hair, peekaboo sweater and extraordinary claim that then-presidential candidate Joe Biden had sexually assaulted her, Tara Reade merited considerable skepticism. Any such accusation deserved a hearing, of course, but Reade was an obvious nutjob and shill for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Why did she have to be “believed” right off the bat?

Nonetheless, The New York Times opinion pages flogged this unlikely story to the point of imbecility; thus jeopardizing the candidacy of perhaps the only Democrat who could defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Times is not the only newspaper in America, but it was considered one of the more reliable sources then. And it set much of the national conversation.


Then there was the piece by media writer Ben Smith, accusatorily titled “Why Won’t TV News Book Tara Reade?”

Perhaps it was because her story was increasingly looking like 100 percent BS. Perhaps it was all the lies popping out of her biography. Perhaps it was her gushing over the magnificent virility of Putin, his love of animals, his gentleness combined with strength.
