A meme circulating on social media falsely alleges that CNN hasn’t published a single story on sexual assault allegations against Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden.
The post, visible (here, here , here , here , here , here) reads: “CNN published more than 700 stories on allegations against [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh. They haven’t published a single one on Biden’s accuser.”
The post is referring to allegations made by Tara Reade, a former Biden aide, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her nearly 30 years ago when he was a U.S. senator, an assertion that Biden’s campaign has strongly denied (here).
False. CNN has reported on Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden.
