Not a “big national story.” Not a “hot, quickly-moving story.”
Hm! I wonder why.
Could it have something to do with the fact that the New York Times assigned dozens of reporters to smear Kavanaugh and wrote four blistering op-eds — by the Editorial Board itself — calling Blowsey-Ford’s claims “credible” and demanding we #BelieveAllWomen?
As John Sexton asks: Gee, how come the New York Times isn’t writing editorials noting that Tara Reade is credible and, unlike Blowsey-Ford, told at least two people about the rape who both confirm that they were told that story at the time?
And as our executive editor @deanbaquet pointed out in a recent interview with my colleague @benyt, Kavanaugh "was a live, ongoing story that had become the biggest political story in the country. It was just a different news judgment moment."

So, Kavanaugh's confirmation was a live, ongoing story, but Joe Biden's presidential run is NOT a live, ongoing story.
Jesus. Who the F do these democrat water-carriers think they're fooling?

I guess she hasn’t bothered to comment on this story, or answer questions about her silence, because she’s too busy retweeting very important, game-changing, “hot” quickly-moving national stories like this:
