HYPOCRITES: ‘Wash. Post’ Spiked VA Dem. Lt. Gov. Sex Abuse Claims For ‘Lack of Proof,’ Didn’t Stop Them with Kavanaugh

Wouldn’t it be something if the mainstream media was held accountable for their blatant biases?

Fake News

The Washington Post is claiming to stand on principle for not publishing stories about sexual abuse allegation filed against Virginia’s Democrat Lt. Governor because they could not get any corroboration of the charges. OK, great. So, why did they go all in on all the false charges they published about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last October?

I’ll tell you why: because the Virginia Lt. Gov. is a Democrat whom they wanted to protect while Brett Kavanaugh is a Republican whom they wanted to destroy, that’s why.

In the wake of the wreckage that is the gubernatorial career of Virginia’s Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, all of a sudden, the past charges against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax resurfaced.

A fellow at Stanford University named Vanessa Tyson accused Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room at the 2004 Democrat National Convention.

So What Does the Post Have to Do With It?

It turns out that Tyson approached the Washington Post about these allegations when Fairfax was running for Lt. Gov. in 2017. The Post, though, ignored the story because Tyson was the only person they could find to substantiate the accusations.

In other words, they could not find a second source or a witness to shore up Tyson’s claims.

So, the Post refused to run the story. This week the paper explained why they spiked the story back in 2017.

The Washington Post, in phone calls to people who knew Fairfax from college, law school and through political circles, found no similar complaints of sexual misconduct against him. Without that, or the ability to corroborate the woman’s account — in part because she had not told anyone what happened — The Washington Post did not run a story.

She said she never told anyone about what happened at the time or in the years that followed until shortly before she approached The Post.

Well, that is, perhaps, a good journalistic standard.

Now the Post’s Hypocrisy:

However, that is not the standard the Post employed in its hundreds of stories attacking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when three women came forward with accusations of separate and distinctly different instances of sexual assault but not one of them had any corroborating proof.

The Washington Post went full bore in a full-frontal assault on Kavanaugh and reported every last lie they could find.

So, where was the Post’s “standards” with Kavanaugh?

Well, we know exactly what happened here, don’t we?

The Post did not want to publish stories that would tar Lt. Gov. Fairfax as a sexual abuser because Fairfax is a Democrat. The paper wanted to protect Fairfax as a result.

On the other hand, Kavanaugh is a Republican, so “standards” were not wanted for the paper’s campaign to destroy judge Kavanaugh. You see, the judge was someone the Post wanted to ruin, and all those airy “journalistic standards” were an impediment to that.

Report Shows Joe Biden Paid Women Far Less Than Men During His 35 Years In the Senate

Oh, this seems more than a little interesting…

There are many reasons to not vote for former Vice President Joe Biden. Too many to list here. But as long as Donald Trump is out of office, liberals wouldn’t care if Joe or a trained monkey worked out of the Oval Office. Biden claims that he’s a liberal but his actions over the years tell a different story. He’s not really anything other than ignorant. This report about the 2020 Democrat frontrunner paying women less than men for three and a half decades while a senator from Delaware should have the left in a tizzy. But it won’t. From Free Beacon: Women working for former vice president Joe Biden were paid less than their male counterparts during the entirety of Biden’s 35 years in the U.S. Senate, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. When Biden joined the Senate in 1973, the average pay for a full-time female staffer in his office was $5,029, about 68 percent of the $7,383 average paid to men during that span, according to the secretary of the Senate’s first spending report for the 93rd Congress. A Free Beacon analysis of spending reports covering Biden’s full Senate tenure found that he never achieved gender pay equity. Over the course of Biden’s time in the Senate, women on average earned just 67 cents for each dollar earned by men. Check out the chart: The Free Beacon conducted its analysis using salary disbursements disclosed in the biannual report of the secretary of the Senate. As with previous Free Beacon gender pay gap investigations, only staffers employed for the entirety of any of the six-month pay periods analyzed were included in the calculations. Biden said he’d cure cancer if elected president in 2020. No joke. As if that weren’t bad enough, Biden is now claiming the Obama…

Cruz On Obama’s FBI Targeting Trump: ‘This Was Beavis & Butthead,’ Not ‘Jason Bourne’

Ted Cruz for the win?

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) has forgotten more about politics and American history than most people will ever know. Red, white, and blue runs through his veins. Never one to censure himself, Cruz unloaded on Inspector General Michael Horowitz and taught him a thing or two in the process. It was brilliant. From Daily Wire: On Wednesday, speaking at Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hearing, Senator Ted Cruz attacked the Obama administration for its supposed ignorance of the actions of the FBI and DOJ that targeted the 2016 Trump campaign, snapping, “This wasn’t Jason Bourne. This was Beavis and Butt-Head.” WATCH: Ted Cruz: This wasn’t Jason Bourne, this was Beavis and Butthead🔥 https://twitter.com/PolishPatriotTM/status/1204839761921421312?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204839761921421312&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fcruz-this-wasnt-jason-bourne-this-was-beavis-and-butthead%2F WATCH: THE FIX WAS IN… FBI official allegedly altered document that was basis for FISA warrant on surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign. https://twitter.com/CaliforniaPanda/status/1197665317675294722?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197665317675294722&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-fbi-official-under-criminal-investigation-for-altering-document-used-to-start-probe-into-trump-campaign Reactions: And CNN puts it in paragraph 2 – bc this is the most important thing – that Trump will accuse the FBI of wrongdoing in this investigation.
