posted by Hannity Staff - 5.04.20

DNC Chief Tom Perez backed former Vice President Joe Biden over the weekend; saying he “trusts” the Democratic frontrunner regarding allegations of sexual abuse against a staffer nearly three decades ago.

“If Barack Obama had any indication that there was an issue, Barack Obama would not have had him as his vice president. Barack Obama trusted Joe Biden,” he said. “I trust Joe Biden. And those investigations have been done.”

BUSTED! NY TIMES Says They Won’t Show Virus Briefings Because They’ve ‘Become Campaign Events’ for Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.15.20

The New York Times escalated their ongoing feud with the White House this week; saying they won’t live-stream the daily Coronavirus press briefing because they’ve “become like campaign events” for President Trump.

“We’ve decided not to live-stream stream the briefings because they were becoming like campaign events,” said Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet. “We will write about them as warranted.”

 

The same editor admitted earlier this week that the newspaper changed a story on allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden because the phrasing was “awkward.”

“I want to ask about some edits that were made after publication, the deletion of the second half of the sentence: ‘The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.’ Why did you do that?” asked the Times’ Ben Smith.

“Even though a lot of us, including me, had looked at it before the story went into the paper, I think that the campaign thought that the phrasing was awkward and made it look like there were other instances in which he had been accused of sexual misconduct. And that’s not what the sentence was intended to say,” said Executive Editor Dean Baquet.

“We didn’t think it was a factual mistake. I thought it was an awkward phrasing issue that could be read different ways and that it wasn’t something factual we were correcting. So I didn’t think that was necessary,” he added.
