I have to give the MSM in general and CNN in particular credit. Every time I think they are incapable of surprising me in terms of how low they will go they manage to surprise me.
CNN removed the August 11th, 1993 Larry King Episode from Google Play, the episode featuring a call from Tara Reade’s mother. CNN is actively colluding with the Biden campaign to cover up evidence of Biden’s sexual assault. pic.twitter.com/JqTcofIyqs— J. L. Hamilton (@absinthol) April 26, 2020
This is actually even worse than the whole: “Beware of the Leopard “ business that MSNBC played with their Morning Joe Jeffrey Epstein clip during Election 2016. You could find it if you jumped through hoops, these guys have removed this clip from a public archive where it has been presumably for decades.
The embarrassment of this clip being uncovered by the MRC from their own archives actually forced CNN to cover the story on air for the very 1st time this weekend. That was telling but the removal of this clip without comment is more so.
If they thought that this clip was no big deal, if they thought that the evidence in it was at best circumstantial, which it might be considered, then they would have left it be.
But they took the proactive stance to have it removed from Googleplay, and yes I said proactive because unlike Hotair I’m not going to give them the benefit of the doubt here:
I originally had reservations about the episode because the caller isn’t identified by name and she doesn’t specifically mention which “prominent senator” her daughter worked for or what her “problems” were that prompted her to leave that job. But it’s since been confirmed that Jeanette Altimus did indeed live in San Luis Obispo at that time. It was also the exact period when Tara Reade was leaving Washington. That’s a few too many coincidences to write this off, and Reade has confirmed that it’s her mother’s voice we’re hearing and that she knew her mom had called King’s show.
The real question here is how the show wound up not being listed in the Google Play directory, assuming this isn’t just some bizarre technical glitch. (I have an account and checked myself. It’s not there.)
I suppose, just to be fair, we should at least mention the possibility that either the episodes are mislabeled or the original was never loaded. But the dates of the shows all line up until August 10th, episode 154. And the next entry is dated August 12th, but it’s labeled as episode 155. Again, we’re asking the word “coincidence” to do a lot of heavy lifting to sweep this away as some sort of glitch.
Or to put it another way, if there had been a clip of Christie Blassey Ford’s mom talking calling into a Fox show about her daughter getting assaulted at a party from two decades ago and Fox removed it from their online archive the entire Corona Virus story would disappear from CNN’s airwaves, smothered by their coverage and every single GOP senator would be asked about it.
Of course in fairness every Democrat Senator has been asked about this, but their offices won’t even acknowledge the questions:
Every Democrat in the Senate has refused to acknowledge the sexual assault allegations against 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden that were brought forward by a former staffer, even after new evidence lends credibility to the alleged assault.
The Daily Caller contacted every Democrat in the Senate, asking them if they would even consider the allegations by Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade, who has accused the then-senator of kissing her, touching her and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent in 1993. Each Senate office was given 24 hours to respond but not one did.
Given the proactive move by CNN and the unanimity of the silence of Senate Democrats I am forced to conclude that this is not because they believe Ms. Reade’s accusations to be false, but because they believe them to be true.

This is far more solid corroboration for Reade’s claim against Biden than there was for any of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers, yet the media devoted round-the-clock coverage to the Kavanaugh accusations. Scott Whitlock at the Media Research Center asks:
Journalists have largely buried this story. ABC, NBC and CNN have not reported on it AT ALL. CBS, PBS and MSNBC have offered very minimal coverage. How long will journalists keep covering up this explosive story?
How long, indeed?
This is why I no longer give Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt here.
Update: CNN is denying it did anything with the Larry King stuff, here is my response
This denial would be a lot more credible if @cnn had not spent the last month hiding from this story in contrast to their #Kavanaugh coverage— Peter Ingemi (@DaTechGuyblog) April 27, 2020
So you'll pardon me if I'm a tad skeptical here #TaraReadeBlackout https://t.co/VK7UY2xdLX
After all after “Hands up Don’t shoot”, the Covington Kids and their regularly featuring the creepy porn lawyer why on earth would I presume their denial is true?
