We recently reported when New York City political appointee Lindsey Boylan took to social media on Sunday to claim that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years,” and I warned that the mainstream news media would Tara Reade her, and completely ignore the story. And they did. Tara Reade came out and accused Joe Biden of sexual assault and the media didn’t cover that story either.
So, if you get your “news,” for lack of a better word, from ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC or NBC you’re probably ignorant of her tweet, because they failed to cover it. Cuomo is their boy, because even though he completely botched the handling of coronavirus in his state, he brazenly accused President Donald Trump for his own mistakes and failures, and since these network hate Donald Trump, Cuomo is their hero.
Had Cuomo been a Republican you would still be hearing about it. It’s just the messed up world we live in now.
Boylan, who describes herself as a progressive (which is really the American version of a Marxist), according to her LinkedIn profile, worked for the Cuomo administration from 2015 to 2018.
“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched. I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”
“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it.
And I *know* I am not the only woman.”
The Media Research Center reported that ABC, NBC and CBS ignored Boylan’s claims in the first 24 hours after her allegations became public. That’s nothing. It’s been over a month and they’re still ignoring all the evidence that confirms massive voter fraud took place in the 2020 election. You can’t trust that alphabet soup.
“The network newscasts on Sunday night and Monday morning were predictably silent on the shocking sexual harassment claims against Governor Andrew Cuomo, a hero among liberals,” NewsBusters associate editor Scott Whitlock wrote.
“On Sunday night there was silence from the networks. On Monday morning, NBC’s ‘Today,’ ‘CBS This Morning’ and ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ all avoided the accusations against the governor, despite a combined six hours of available air time,” Whitlock added.
Networks weren’t the only ones who decided to completely ignore the story, because liberal cable news outlets also completely ignored accusations made by Boylan.
I wonder how that makes progressive women feel to know that left wing news outlets will completely ignore their allegations of sexual harassment to favor a man who is a liberal Democrat politician? Doesn’t that mean that all of media’s hype and rhetoric about women needing to be believed was just a bunch of bullschtein political rhetoric?
Neither CNN nor MSNBC mentioned Boylan’s allegations during the 24 hour timeline follower her tweets, according to the transcripts.
Though Boylan described the governor’s office as being a “toxic work environment” earlier in December, she has yet to give up and details of alleged incidents, and she has named no witnesses.
On a side note, whenever people here about charges of sexual harassment they immediately begin to think of a boss, usually a man, telling a female subordinate that if she doesn’t have sex with him she’s fired or she won’t get promotions or she will be demoted, etc. That’s horrible and there should be something done about bosses who do that. But that’s not how the liberals have morphed this area of the law. Sexual harassment could have absolutely nothing to do with an action being sexual in nature. It could have to do with harassment in the workplace like having your work ridiculed constantly or being cursed at by the boss. In the old days we used to call that life on the job. Us older folks understand that many people had bad bosses at one time or another who took things out on you that you didn’t deserve.
Of course, the governor’s office said there was no truth to the claims as if anyone expected him to admit to it.
There’s a lot of speculation going around that Boylan came out with these accusations because she’s running for Manhattan Borough President in 2021 and she thinks she’ll get media attention and the attentions of some feminist groups who will come out and support her. But it looks like she’s learning that feminists are only against politicians who won’t do their bidding. For goodness’ sake they championed Bill Clinton a serial sexual predator. Boylan also ran against Jerry Nadler for his seat in Congress this year, and she lost by 40 points, according to Ballotpedia!
