The Washington Post Takes the Art of Spin to Dizzying New Heights

On Monday, Business Insider reported that two additional women, both of whom sound credible, have come forward to corroborate former Biden staffer Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual-assault against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

Lynda LaCasse, a former neighbor, said Reade told her about the alleged assault in detail in 1995 or 1996. LaCasse said, “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.” Not only is LaCasse a Democrat, she is a Biden supporter.

Lorraine Sanchez was a former colleague of Reade’s, who recalls Reade telling her about being sexually harassed by her former boss in Washington, D.C. in the mid-1990’s.

According to Business Insider:

“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him,” LaCasse said. “And he kind of put her up against a wall, and he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do… I remember she was devastated.”

Sanchez gave Insider a similar story.

“[Reade said] she had been sexually harassed by her former boss while she was in D.C.,” Sanchez told the paper. “And as a result of her voicing her concerns to her supervisors, she was let go, fired.”

There are now four individuals who can corroborate the story plus the video evidence of her late mother calling into the Larry King show, which I consider to be compelling.

The Washington Post reluctantly reported on this latest development and entitled their article, “Trump allies highlight new claims regarding allegations against Biden.”

According to Media Bias/Fact Check, far from being Trump-allied, Business Insider is considered to be a left-leaning publication.

Additionally, both women were and remain Democrats. As mentioned earlier, LaCasse is currently a Biden supporter.

This headline is disingenuous and takes the art of political spin to dizzying new heights – which is precisely what we’ve come to expect from The Washington Post.
