No Joe, really, no

While the details of these allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault are complicated, two things are not complicated. One is that women deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and when they step forward they should be heard, not silenced. The second is that their stories should be subject to appropriate inquiry and scrutiny.
Responsible news organizations should examine and evaluate the full and growing record of inconsistencies in her story, which has changed repeatedly in both small and big ways.

It is courts, not newspapers, that check through allegations of a crime……

  1. Tim, your comment overlooks the word “responsible”, perhaps that is because you believe that “responsible news organisations” is an oxymoron.
    It is true that it is the responsibility of courts to check allegations of a crime but it is the responsibility of newspapers to check stories before they publish them so responsible newspapers do so – in my childhood Beaverbrook demanded that Daily Express reporters did so.

  2. “As President, I’m committed to finishing the job” is the final line of the transcript.

    Did I miss something and the presidency changed while I wasn’t looking? Or is that just a typo?

  3. Joe biden can plausibly say he doesn’t remember the assault happening. So in his mind it can’t be true.

    The second is that their stories should be subject to appropriate inquiry and scrutiny.

    What work is the word “appropriate” doing in that sentence?

  5. ‘While the details of these allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault are complicated’

    Liar. They are not complicated at all. Your squirming doesn’t make it complicated.

    ‘two things are not complicated. One is that [1] women deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and [2] when they step forward they should be heard, not silenced. The second [3] is that their stories should be subject to appropriate inquiry and scrutiny.’

    Duh. Math hard, Joe?

    “Meghan Markle’s defeat at the High Court today has been branded a ‘disaster’ and a ‘humiliation’ by leading lawyers after she lost the first round of her legal battle with the Mail on Sunday.
    .
    Large parts of her case against Associated Newspapers were dismissed as ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’ and ‘impermissibly vague’ by a top judge this afternoon including her claims of a malicious media ‘agenda’ against her.
    .
    Mr Justice Warby has also ‘struck out’ her allegations that journalists had acted dishonestly and had caused the rift between her and her estranged father Thomas by ‘digging up dirt’ to portray Meghan in a ‘negative light’….”

    ‘Megan denies colluding with her friends who leaked letter details’ – how did they know about it then?

    I hope she’s stupid and stubborn enough to continue case

    I hope she’s stupid and stubborn enough to continue case

    That’s a rather mean spirited view. It’s fairly clear in which direction this affair is heading so it would be considerably kinder to hope that the case could fold with minimum (though still considerable) embarassment to the principals and those many who will feel the impact at arm’s length.

    “mean spirited view” – not at all, if she backs down now Meghan & her sycophants will push ‘denied/prevented court hearing’ for years

    “Did I miss something…”
    No, it’s just Joe living in a future dreamworld, hence the present tense.

    Pcar – wishing someone to act in a stupid and stubborn way is scarcely prompted by a generous impulse.

  12. @TMB

    There are two sides in the case: Meghan Markle vs Daddy Markle & Free Press

    My generous impulse is to the defendants. If she abandons case defendants continue to suffer
