Appearing on MSNBC with Chuck Todd, Senator Chris Coons made the dubious claim that the Washington Post, NY Times and Associated press have concluded that there are no substance to the allegations by Tara Reade against Joe Biden.
In fact, per Jonathan Easley, a New York Times spokesperson says Biden campaign talking points “inaccurately” suggest that the Times investigation found that Tara Reade’s allegation “did not happen.”

I know Joe. I know his life, his character, his record. And as you know well, he’s someone who has spent — he’s dedicated decades of his life and his career in public service to advocating for women, for women’s causes, and in particular, for the Violence Against Women Act.
And he and his campaign urged that these allegations be fully investigated. They have been.
The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press, have dedicated weeks of reporters’ time to digging in, calling people, contacting people, researching. And they all three have concluded that there was no substance to these allegations.
I think the press has done their job, has dug into this in great detail, and I don’t think it’s just a he said/she said. I think it’s a he said/she said/the press thoroughly investigated and found there’s nothing there.
