The NYT’s laughable “Investigation” of Joey Fingers

The NYT’s laughable “Investigation” of Joey Fingers

You gotta hand it to the New York Times.  They will credulously parrot any “unnamed source” who makes any claim against the Trump White House.  But when it comes to Joey Fingers Biden, they go out of their way to be willfully blind.

According to a NYT “investigation,” former Biden staffer Tara Reade’s accusations against the Democrat’s presumptive nominee have no merit.

See, none of Biden’s other staffers corroborated her story that, when she was alone with Biden he attempted to penetrate her with his dirty digits.

Two people alone in a room and none of the other staffers can corroborate it?  Wow.  That’s some bang-up “investigation” you did, New York Times.

You ready for the laughable part?

Despite voluminous video evidence of Joey Fingers nuzzling, fondling, sniffing and manhandling women and girls, the New York Times actually has the temerity to claim there is simply no pattern of sexual misconduct on the part of the handsy old coot.

Joey Fingers NYT Cover fire

Um. That’s a big exemption.

We’ve all seen it with our own eyes.  Joey Fingers can’t keep his hands to himself.

It’s one of the primary reasons Tara Reade’s accusation was so easy to believe.

If that’s the way Joey Fingers behaves when the cameras are rolling, how far would he take it when there’s no one around to see?

I mean that’s some limber jujitsu on the part of the New York Times to actually claim that Joey Fingers has no “pattern of sexual misconduct” BEYOND his penchant for getting handsy in front of cameras.

But see, the Times has to at least look like they’ve “investigated” Reade’s claim.  That way, they can dismiss any accusations that they’re ignoring it.

Plus, now the Biden campaign can say, “Look, this has been thoroughly investigated and it is without merit.  We will not respond to any further questions on this matter” (or, what I like to call it: “the Clinton defense”).

This isn’t about “investigating” Tara Reade’s claim; it’s about providing cover fire for the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee.

As I said the other day, I don’t know if Tara Reade’s accusation is true.  How can we?  According to Reade herself, there were two people in that room – Reade and Joey Fingers.

I do find the timing of Reade’s claims just as suspect as the timing of Christine Blasey Ford’s. Unlike the phony baloney “Believe Women” crowd, I don’t take the accusation alone as “proof.” Besides, weaponizing these kinds of accusations for political purposes is unfortunately rather common.

But the New York Times’ “investigation” of Reade’s claim is so fraught with double-standard hooey, I don’t buy a thing they say.

Like Reade, nobody could corroborate Blasey-Ford’s claims.  In fact, the people Blasey-Ford said were present at this alleged house party have no memory of the party let alone Blasey-Ford’s account of it.  Yet that didn’t stop the New York Times – or any of the rest of the garbage news media — from using her claim to try and destroy Brett Kavanaugh.

Blasey-Ford herself couldn’t couldn’t remember what year, whose house, how she got there, how she left.  The only thing she remembers with absolute clarity is that she drank only one beer.

The difference between Reade and Blasey Ford, however, is a significant one.  Ford didn’t tell anyone for thirty years; Reade, on the other hand, did not keep it to herself — something the NY Times even admits.

But the lack of corroboration that didn’t stop the New York Times from promoting Blasey-Ford’s accusation is more than enough for them to dismiss Reade’s claim against Joey Fingers.

Even if they have to pretend that the pervy old coot’s long history of inappropriate touching is not a “pattern of sexual misconduct.”

Gosh, I wonder why nobody trusts the American news media.

Update:

The New York Times has already “edited” the article to remove their absurd “beyond the hugs, kisses and touching” part. No doubt that tweet will disappear soon as well. That’s okay. I made a screen capture of it.

Update 2:

Aaaaand there you have it!

“Imprecise language.” LOL!

“Contradictory” language is more like it. Good grief, what a bunch of hacks.

    Mainstream media keep members in good shape through a rigorous program of calisthenics and gymnastics including daily exercises in bending their ethics and scruples into bizarre shapes to issue passes to Democrats for the transgressions they regularly crucify Republicans for, another activity which promotes physical strength . . . all that sawing and hammering . . . . ‘sgood for the upper body.

    No only do I not trust (or believe) the American news media, I want most of them up against the wall.

    The Left sees a luvable, huggable, harmless grandfatherly type. The right sees one sick puppy.

      I bet Tara Reade thought Joe was the harmless grandfatherly type until he shoved his fingers inside her. And now he’s such a doddering old fool, he probably has no recollection of that or any of the other dozens of similar acts he committed over the years.

        The Dems protect their perverts and serial rapists.

          Unless one pervert/rapist threatens the power of another one of their pervert/rapists, then he’s expendable.

    Just makes you wonder how much of our tax payer dollars went to cover up Joe Biden’s behavior? Obviously this woman didn’t get any of that money and didn’t have to sign some agreement not to spill the beans on Biden. It’s more than past time that we saw that list of lawmakers who abused staffers and then used OUR money to hush them up! I bet Biden has a lot of paid off victims.

    Notice what we DON’T hear about from the media any more? Hunter Biden or Jill Biden. All reporting on this subject has apparently disappeared down the rabbit hole.

    I wonder why that is.

    Don’t worry. As soon as the DNC comes to the conclusion that Biden is un-electable, every newspaper in the country will suddenly find Tara Reade’s accusation not only credible, but #metoo must believe the woman, there is no chance he didn’t do it, and another likely Dem candidate will be found to take his place.
