The media has bended over backwards to not report on the allegations against Joe Biden.
To his credit, MSNBC host Chris Hayes did a segment on the scandal. Even though he covered it fairly gently, leftists were outraged that he would even mention it.
Now they want him fired.
The Hill reports:
#FireChrisHayes trends after MSNBC host covers Biden sexual assault allegations
MSNBC host Chris Hayes sparked backlash from the left when he became the first prime-time host on the network to cover a former aide’s sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, with the hashtag “FireChrisHayes” trending on Twitter.
The “All-In” host welcomed New York magazine’s Rebecca Traister to his program Wednesday night after she penned an essay, titled “The Biden Trap,” that was critical of the former vice president for not addressing Tara Reade’s allegations in any interviews, thereby leaving Democratic women supporting his candidacy to answer questions about the allegations for him.
Biden has conducted dozens of national and local interviews in recent weeks, but has yet to be asked about the allegations. His campaign denied the allegations in a statement on March 28.

That segment caused the hashtag #FireChrisHayes to trend:
I always thought Chris Hayes was a little prick. I won’t watch him or Chuck Todd. Both are cut from the same cloth. @MSNBC you are harming your reputation with these two. Send them both to Faux News where they belong #FireChrisHayes

I will not be watching MNSBC until Chris Hayes publicly apologizes for doing a segment on a noncredible and inconsistent story in primetime. #FireChrisHayes

Legal experts confirm that the allegations against Joe Biden aren’t remotely credible.
Chris Hayes factually misrepresented the story on air last night.#FireChrisHayes

So these people don’t want the media to report the truth?
