As former Vice President Joe Biden (D) prepares to take on President Trump in the general election, new reports are surfacing against him regarding sexual assault claims. Tara Reade has been spearheading that effort, slamming the Democratic candidate for sexually assaulting her in the 1990s.

In a recent interview with Vice President Biden, CNN’s Anderson Cooper discussed a wide array of topics, but one issue that was not addressed is the allegations aimed against him, This, Tara Reade says, made her lose respect for the journalist.

Speaking to Fox News, Reade expressed that “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.”

Reade added that Biden has “been on ‘Anderson Cooper’ at least twice where he was not asked.”

She further questioned, “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 concluded that “it’s politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the question.”

Moreover, she also explained that her opinion of the mainstream media has shifted since coming forward with her allegations and seeing how it has been handled by the major media networks.

In regards to CNN and Anderson Cooper, she admitted that she “would look to [Cooper] for answers,” but now she argues she will “never do that again.”

In turn, she has “lost total respect” for Cooper, explaining that “as a civilian,” it not easy to know “what news source to trust” because she believes that reporters like Anderson Cooper are exhibiting a clear “blatant bias.”

As both President Trump and Vice President Biden move forward towards the general election, these allegations will likely continue to plague the Biden campaign in its bid for the White House.

What if it was President Trump who was accused of sexual assault? Would the media be so dismissive?
