WaPo Pushes Northam Racism Scandal, Ignores Fairfax Rape Allegations

The paper continues to ignore the sexual assault allegations against Virginia’s lieutenant governor.

The Washington Post continued its bizarre coverage of the Virginia’s scandal-plagued elected Democrats, opting to hit the Gov. Ralph Northam for his racist past, but ignoring Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s alleged history of sexual assault.

“Having bumbled his way through a racial scandal mainly of his own creation, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) promised in February to elevate racial equity to the top of his agenda,” said in a piece titled “Ralph Northam still hasn’t explained the racist yearbook photo.”

“Two months later, he has undertaken some deeds and made some gestures to fulfill that goal, all of them subverted by an unanswered question: If, as Mr. Northam says, he was neither the individual dressed as a Ku Klux Klansman nor the one in blackface in the photograph on his medical-school yearbook page, then how did that image get there, and whom does it depict?” the piece continued.

While getting to the bottom of the Northam scandal is a noble goal, The Washington Post continues to ignore the scandal of Northam’s deputy, Fairfax.

One of Fairfax’s two accusers, Vanessa Tyson, brought her sexual assault allegations to the paper in December of 2017, offering Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) as a corroborating witness. The paper opted not to run the story, saying that it did not meet its editorial standards because there were no corroborating witnesses. Big League Politics exclusively reported that Tyson told at least five professional colleagues about the incident, all of whom spoke with The New York Times and confirmed Tyson’s story.

This week, the paper is making excuses for former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential presidential candidate for 2020, who is under fire for his inappropriate contact with several women.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
