American politics has been turned upside down by a bombshell sex scandal.
The details left the public speechless.
And Brett Kavanaugh was shocked when the truth about the allegations went public.
When a racist photograph showing one man in blackface and another dressed in Ku Klux Klan robes from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s yearbook page surfaced, everyone assumed it was only a matter of time until he resigned.
That would leave Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax to inherit the Governor’s mansion.
But over the weekend, those plans were thrown into chaos.
That’s because Big League Politics broke a story that Vanessa Tyson – who is currently a professor at Stanford University – had accused Fairfax of sexual assault 15 years ago at the 2004 Democrat National Convention in Boston.
Fairfax denied the allegations of assault, but admitted that he did have an encounter with the woman and that it was consensual.
But this was not the first time Tyson came forward with her allegations against Fairfax.
The Washington Post admitted Tyson came to them in January 2018 – around the time Fairfax was inaugurated as Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor – to tell her story.
In a Washington Post article explaining why they did not run her story, Post reporter Theresa Vargas wrote, “Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present. The Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version.”
Vargas also threw cold water on a portion of Fairfax’s denial.
In a statement posted to his twitter account, which was attributed to his chief of staff and communications director, they claimed the Post did not run the story because they found significant red flags with Tyson’s account.
Vargas disputed this and reported, “The Post did not find ‘significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations,’ as the Fairfax statement incorrectly said.”
But, the Post’s caution in reporting the allegations against Fairfax stand in stark contrast to how they treated Christine Blasey Ford’s smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh.
The Washington Post printed Blasey Ford’s allegations sight-unseen—despite the fact that she offered no corroborating evidence and provided no witnesses to back up her claims.
Liberal outlets like the Post are fake news because they are not news outlets.
They are the political messaging arms of the Democrat Party.
Stories like Blasey Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh – even though they don’t stand up to the slightest bit of scrutiny – are treated as fact because the accuser helps advance their political agenda.
Tyson’s accusations against Fairfax were far more credible than Blasey Ford’s.
Blasey Ford could not offer a specific time or place her supposed attack occurred.
None of the supposed “witnesses” she named were either at the party, or remembered it taking place, or that Kavanaugh and Ford were ever in the same social setting.
And she routinely changed details about the event, such as how old she was when the alleged attack happened.
On the other hand, Tyson named a specific time and place when Fairfax allegedly assaulted her.
And even Fairfax admits there was an encounter.
The fact that the Washington Post ran Blasey Ford’s story and not Tyson’s proves they are not good faith media actors.
When Donald Trump says fake news outlets like the Post are the enemy of the people, this is the type of blatantly biased coverage he is referring to.
