The woman who has accused Joe Biden of a sexual assault in the early 1990s says she’s upset that CNN anchor Anderson Cooper failed to ask the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee about the allegation when he had the chance — not once, but twice.
What should be obvious now is that CNN has no interest in looking into this story, they are more interested in doing whatever they must to rid themselves of Trump, even if they have to cover for rape allegations.
Tara Reade, a former staffer for then-Senator Biden, told her story about the former vice president over a month ago with progressive podcast host Katie Halper. Since then, Biden has done nearly a dozen TV interviews with news anchors including NBC News’ Chuck Todd, ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, and twice with Cooper — all of whom failed to ask Biden about her public claim.
In speaking to Fox News, she said, “I think it’s shocking that this much time has passed and that he is an actual nominee for president and they’re not asking the questions, he’s been on ‘Anderson Cooper’ at least twice where he was not asked.”
“I guess my question is if this were Donald Trump, would they treat it the same way? If this were Brett Kavanaugh, did they treat it the same way?” Reade said. “In other words, it’s politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the question.”
Reid is upset and rightfully so because CNN and the other liberal news sites refuse to ask Biden about the allegations. Yet, they none stop attacked Kavanaugh and others, showing their clear bias and hypocrisy.
“There are two things happening at once. [Biden] is not making himself accessible to be asked the question. And when he does make himself accessible, they are not asking, those anchors. And so that tells there may be a political agenda behind that and that’s gross. … I’m a survivor, and I would like the question asked.”
Reade said her opinions of some journalists and media outlets have shifted in recent weeks based on their coverage of her claim.
“I really would look to [Cooper] for answers, and I would never do that again. I’ve lost total respect,” Reade said, adding that “as a civilian,” it’s difficult to know “what news source to trust” since shows like Cooper’s have a “blatant bias.”
Reade’s story first came back to light in an article in an article in The Intercept on March 24. Halper then interviewed Reade, who said that in 1993, a more senior member of Biden’s staff asked her to bring the then-senator his gym bag near the U.S. Capitol building, which led to the encounter in question.
“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,” Reade told Halper. “There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.”
Reade said that she was wearing “a business skirt,” but “wasn’t wearing stockings — it was a hot day.”
She continued: “His hands were on me and underneath my clothes, and he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying some things to me.””I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing,” Reade said. “He said: ‘Come on, man. I heard you liked me.'”

It is incredible how Cooper and others in the leftist news sites refuse to cover this. It seems they only find it news when it involves someone Trump supports. Maybe it is time we contact Cooper and others and tell them enough is enough, be news reporters, not political hacks.
Many news sites have reached out to Biden to ask him about his recollection of the events. We have fired off a request our self, for some reason, none of these are being returned, are ignored by the Biden camp.
