Actress and #MeToo activist Rose McGowan just blasted the mainstream media, saying that it is a “complicity machine” that “is hard at work covering up for Creepy Joe Biden” over his sexual assault allegations.
McGowan took to social media to respond to a tweet by the Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald, who wrote that it was “shocking – truly – that not a single cable news host who has interviewed Biden has even dared ask him about these sexual assault allegations.”
He was referring to the fact that Biden has been accused by former staffer Tara Reade of sexually assaulting her back in 1993.
It’s shocking – truly – that not a single cable news host who has interviewed Biden has even dared ask him about these sexual assault allegations – disappearing Tara Reade – which is why I’m always grateful for the integrity and independence of @democracynow: https://t.co/9lCdKmvm6I

McGowan responded to Greenwald on Twitter by doubling down on his attacks on the media. “I don’t have Covid-19, but the media in USA is making me ill,” McGowan responded. “The complicity machine is hard at work covering up for Creepy Joe Biden. Has NBC News asked any hard questions? Everyone knows he’ll lose, why not go hard? Why not TELL THE TRUTH.”
I don’t have Covid-19, but the media in USA is making me ill. The complicity machine is hard at work covering up for Creepy @joebiden. Has @nbcnews asked any hard questions? Everyone knows he’ll lose, why not go hard? Why not TELL THE TRUTH https://t.co/N1ToDtBbDn

This is far from the only time McGowan has attacked the media as of late. Last night, she responded to a New York Times story that questioned why the public no longer trust the media. McGowan replied, “it’s because the public sees your favoritism and your utter hypocrisy. Yes, you go after the reprehensible Trump, but leave Biden accusations alone. You are the problem.”
I’d say @nytimes it’s because the public sees your favoritism and your utter hypocrisy. Yes, you go after the reprehensible Trump, but leave Biden accusations alone. You are the problem. https://t.co/Rm5OiRrOp1

She has also been calling out the hypocrisy of her former “Charmed” co-star Alyssa Milano, who supports Biden despite the sexual assault allegations against him. McGowan retweeted someone who wrote, “Milano remains silent on the rape accusation against Joe Biden, after demanding we #BelieveWomen when Blasey Ford came forward against Kavanaugh, and despite Tara Reade having more evidence against Biden and Biden having more female accusers than Kavanaugh ever did.”
It has indeed been proven that Reade worked for Biden at his U.S. Senate office in 1993, and another woman has confirmed that Reade told her about the assault right after it happened, according to Breitbart News.
“It happened all at once, and then…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes,” Reade said of the assault, going on to add:
“And then he went down my skirt and then up inside it. And he penetrated me with his fingers, whatever. And he was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me. He said several things and I can’t remember everything [that] he said. I remember a couple of things. I remember his saying, first, like as he was doing it, ‘Do you want to go somewhere else?’ and then him saying to me, when I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ That phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said. And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.
“For me, everything shattered in that moment. He wasn’t trying to do anything more. But I looked up to him. He was my father’s age. He was this champion of women’s rights in my eyes and I couldn’t believe it was happening.”
It’s absolutely shameful that the mainstream media is trying to cover this up for Biden, and in doing so, they are only exposing themselves as the shameful hypocrites that they are. Good for McGowan for calling them out and for refusing to be just another liberal sheep who buys into everything the media says.
