The Grand Old Lady of journalism hit a new low over the weekend. The New York Times, whose motto has always been “all the news that’s fit to print” ran an editorial that bordered on something you’d find in The Onion.
They called for the Democrat National Committee to put together an “unbiased, apolitical panel” to investigate the sexual shenanigans of one Joe Biden. So, you have to wonder if the Times editorial board has decided to take the show on the road…you know…maybe show up at one of the many comedy clubs in the greater New York City area (once they open up again), and start polishing an act.
All sorts of journalists, and we’re not talking about the “fake news” specialists here, but REAL journalists, mocked the Times for making such a ludicrous statement. I don’t think anybody with half a brain would have taken such a comment as serious. Certainly the DNC didn’t. Here’s what the DNC’s response was:
“This is an absurd suggestion on the face. Regardless of whether it’s the job of the DNC to do this kind of thing, it’s already been done. Joe Biden has been clear in responding to this allegation, he went through a thorough vetting process to be Obama’s Vice President in 2008 (which is a vetting process like no other)and lawyers and the press found nothing, and he has asked for transparency by requesting that all relevant documents be released if they exist.”
Now, that statement says volumes about this whole process. Would anyone with half a brain have expected Joe Biden to come clean and say that yes…he raped this woman in the basement of the United States Capitol and that he had an on-going sexual abuse problem? Would anyone disagree that the press and “lawyers” vetting Biden back in 2008 missed something if this certainly did exist? And by the way…just how good is the DNC at “vetting” Vice Presidents? Does anyone remember the name of Thomas Eagleton? How much vetting was done on that one?
I think the most interesting statement comes at the end where the DNC says that Biden has asked for “transparency by requesting that all relevant documents be released if they exist. That tells me that yes, Biden’s staff has been to the University of Delaware and has scrubbed any offending documentation. I mean, would a presidential candidate say something like that if there was the slightest chance such a document would indeed exist?
For the New York Times to come out and even suggest that a political party, I don’t care which political party you choose, could, at this late date, put together an unbiased and apolitical group to vet their presumptive nominee, since he’s the only one left running, is ridiculous. I don’t know what kind of drugs they are taking at the editorial board meetings of the New York Times, but they must have a great pipeline into South America!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
