POLITICO founder Martin Tolchin made a starkly partisan defense of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in a letter to the editor of the New York Times published on Tuesday, even going so far as to dismiss an investigation into Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against the former Vice President for political reasons.
Tolchin fears the consequences of an investigation into Reade’s allegations for the Democratic Party.
Quite obviously, sexual assault allegations against a major public figure are newsworthy in their own right, without consideration for their partisan political effects. The instincts of a real journalist would be to investigate the claims made by Reade- which are by no means proven or definitive, although there is corroboration.
Tolchin is a former New York Times journalist who went on to found the digital liberal media group Politico.
That he would so blatantly reject fundamental journalistic integrity in favor of naked partisanship in support of Joe Biden’s “coronation” is a black mark on both of the liberal mainstream media groups he’s worked for.
The legacy media godfather was sharply criticized across both sides of the political spectrum after his reactionary call to shut down inquiries into the matter was published in the Times.

OWNED: ‘The Federalist’ Employees Slam Never Trump Hack David Frum for Insinuation of Conservative Gender Bias
Frum is a disingenuous virtue signaler.
Disgraced former Bush speechwriter David Frum, who abandoned the GOP to become a Never Trumper and Democrat operative, made a complete idiot of himself on social media on Thursday.
Frum posted a bizarre conspiracy theory, naming people such as left-wing journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, podcast host Joe Rogan, the writers at The Federalist, and Donald Trump Jr. as part of a new milieu centered around a mutual disdain for U.S. power, or something.
“Wanted: smart, non-polemical assessment of emergence of Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan, Glenn Greenwald, Donald Trump Jr., Matt Taibbi, the Federalist group of writers etc. as a coherent and cohesive faction in American politics. They share more than just the same dislikes,” Frum wrote in a tweet.
He started a Twitter thread to justify selling out his party and his country while hurling accusations at various political enemies who he arbitrarily grouped together.
“Trump put racism, misogyny, cruelty, corruption, authoritarianism on a giant billboard and forced us all to look. Could we accept? Those who said No found themselves in tandem with others who said No,” Frum wrote.
“Trump pushed Never Trump Republicans into partnership with moderate Democrats – and prodded even formerly conservative minded people – to see power in ideas like Me Too and Black Lives Matter,” he added.
“And that’s what we’re seeing in this fusion of the pro-Trump right with factions of the far left. Both are mistrustful of US power as a force for good. Both recoil from “centrism.” And both have heard quite enough from women and minorities, thank you very much,” Frum concluded.
While Frum’s rant is obviously meritless drivel, he really stepped into it when he made a drive-by comment to virtue signal to his left-wing, anti-male “Resistance” followers.
I don't think it's a coincidence that this group includes no women. https://t.co/bAnVzHCE6w

Writers for The Federalist, the conservative media outlet that employs many female reporters, and other like-minded conservatives have spent the entire day dunking on Frum for his idiotic and humiliating comment.
The Federalist staff is majority female, but OK. https://t.co/1doGpzh4L3

We have more women writers and editorial representation than any other major publication, period. And I have more babies than every other woman editor in the entire world. 😊 https://t.co/lKeIs3vvCV

I imagine @MZHemingway, @emilyjashinsky, @InezFeltscher, @JoyPullmann, @madelineorr, et al. would object to your attempted (misogynist?) erasure of their significant body of work at @FDRLST. https://t.co/k4vZi5boKy

Two things are true at @FDRLST:
1. We believe men and women are different.
2. We employ a majority of the latter. https://t.co/tMFjS4VOy3

Big League Politics has been hammering Frum for years as he has emerged as perhaps the most dishonest charlatan among the “Never Trump” defectors:
Former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum, a face of the NeverTrump “Republican” establishment, lost the Munk debate in Toronto to Steve Bannon, populist-nationalist CEO of the President Trump 2016 campaign and original Trump White House chief strategist.
Frum is one of the few media-friendly so-called conservatives still clinging to newsprint in the age of Trump by throwing spitballs at the wildly successful Commander in Chief. (He also wrote a book on W. Bush entitled “The Right Man,” lest we forget).
Bannon fans were looking forward to the confrontation…
Perhaps during term two, President Donald Trump could have Frum arrested for his role in devising and selling the public on the Iraq War.
