Via Trends we see Tara Reade has drawn 75% as much public interest as Christine Blasey Ford did:

The New York Times, in contrast, has only seen it fit to provide Reade 12% as much coverage as it devoted to Blasey Ford. Biden’s accuser has been mentioned in 68 articles, Kavanaugh’s in 570 of them.

The corporate media’s sins of commission are bad. Their sins of omission are even worse.

  1. We can chalk up a lot to the indifference of the typical conservative voter.

    If our people don’t boycott the Culture Industry, and support Alternative Outlets…

    We will lose, and we will deserve it

    I'm ignoring them as hard as I can. Will I still deserve our loss?

    Also, that one side is lying while the other is not, makes this more than just a question of publicity rates.

  3. 1) Shouldn’t “public interest” in Ford vs. Reade be equal to area beneath their respective Google curves rather than to the height? I don’t know if Google gives any figures useful to compute this, and visually, Reade may still come out at about 75% of Ford, so maybe it’s academic in this case.

    2) Since media pacesetter NYT has only given Reade 12% of the coverage that it lavished on Ford, one could conclude that the Reade story is (.75/.12=) 6.25 times more newsworthy than the Ford story, which makes the NYT’s partisan bias all the more unpardonable. How much more unpardonable? 6.25/.12= 52 times as unpardonable as the ISO standard unpardonable unit.

  5. I’m surprised they’d even give Reade 12%.

    Would you like to publish a 22,000 word essay on the criminal elite from me?

    I suspect the difference would be even more dramatic if you did a sentiment analysis of the articles.

    The difference between the treatment of Christine Blasey-Ford and Tara Reade has been one of the best examples of Democratic hypocrisy I have seen to date.

    Just as one example, what respective standards do you think should apply to a high school student vs. a sitting US Senator?

    That would take at least 10,000 words to explain. Maybe more.

    That's great.

    The problem is that the Left doesn't care when we notice their hypocrisy. In fact, they are energized by it, because they take it as a sign they must be doing something right.

    "one of the best examples of Democrat hypocrisy"

    There is no hypocrisy. The Left are not your concerned fellow citizens, debating in the public forum so as to ascertain and implement the common good.

    They are a foreign army who fully intend to conquer your country, debase you, enslave you, show no mercy, and have the place for themselves. To that end, they will pretend to debate you if it's to their advantage that you be pacified by the false pretenses of civic engagement, but it's just a delaying tactic while they secure their flanks and build up their cavalry. They recognize no principles other than victory and your unconditional surrender (you're a Confederate Nazi, remember?) and have no rules of engagement, no scruples, nothing but Eyes On the Prize -- and the prize is not civic equality and a peaceful future, it is your defeat and destruction.

    "War is deception" is a fairly common principle of war. So is, Vae victis.

    🤔 …reminds me of a similar debate back in the day…

    Peace.

  16. They are both lying, but Ford’s was so bad that I can’t believe she wasn’t locked up for it.
