(Yikes.)

1. Reade’s are the only motivations questioned in the article.

2. NYT explores the possibility of Reade being a liar, but not the ramifications of her telling the truth.

3. The article judges Biden against Trump’s standard.

4. The article ignores a very compelling public record of sexual misconduct by Joe Biden.

5. NYT advertised the article as debunking Reade, when the story and their resulting article is far more complicated.

Writer. Leftie nobody.
