It was a blockbuster story when it broke. The details of the encounter were far worse than other incidents that were less violent and allegedly perpetrated by lower-profile men. Yet within a couple of days following accusations by E. Jean Carroll that then-businessman Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago, it’s barely a blip on the news cycle’s radar. How could this be?
To answer that question, one needs only read the story, look at the timing, and hear the few interviews she was granted following the release of her story. In short, mainstream media has quietly come to the conclusion they don’t believe her.
If they believed her, this would be the biggest story on most networks and every left-wing news outlet.
If they believed her, she would be getting more attention than Christine Blasey Ford.
But they don’t. Here’s why.
The story seems too far-fetched
A woman in her 50s is asked by a man in his 50s to model lingerie for him in a closed dressing room, and she accepts despite never having met him before. That’s the premise behind the “rape.”
If you’re already scratching your head, it gets worse.
As Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo recounts in her article, the details of the alleged event were very different from anything we’ve heard about the President. Of course, he denies it completely.
“As we head to the dressing rooms, I’m laughing aloud and saying in my mind: I’m gonna make him put this thing on over his pants!” she claims, adding that “[t]he moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly, and puts his mouth against my lips.”
“I am so shocked I shove him back and start laughing again,” the accusation continues. “He seizes both my arms and pushes me up against the wall a second time, and, as I become aware of how large he is, he holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights.”
Carroll then explains that she kept “laughing,” which she says “astonished” her.
“The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me. It turns into a colossal struggle,” she alleges. “I am wearing a pair of sturdy black patent-leather four-inch Barneys high heels, which puts my height around six-one, and I try to stomp his foot. I try to push him off with my one free hand — for some reason, I keep holding my purse with the other — and I finally get a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out of the dressing room.”
She has a man-bashing book coming out shortly
23 years after the alleged attack and three years after his last election, in which she remained silent, Carroll decides now is the time to make the claim. It is recounted in a book she has coming out on July 2 aptly named, “What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal“. And as she made her rounds to talk shows before producers and journalists started doubting her story, her responses to their questions sounded a whole lot like someone who was much more interested in selling books than righting a wrong.

This doesn’t sound like the tale of a victim. It’s a PR tour.
Her reason for not filing charges is… migrants?

Okay, so it’s a false report. Time to move on, just as most of mainstream media has.
Women who make false accusations harm women who are truly victims. Nothing in E. Jean Carroll’s tale makes sense, which is why the media is suddenly ignoring her so soon after the story broke. It’s the best thing they’ve done in a while.
