Did you read the article? I am not sure how you could be conflicted. In fact the more bullshit accusations come out (brace yourself for Avenatti to get in the mix), the more it dilutes Ford's original cliam. Her accusation has less substance than Ford's. You have her friends coming out (in this article) stating they have no fucking clue what she is talking, never heard he say a word about it, and suggest this could be politically motivated. WAPO, NYT, CNN, and NBC all turned down this story. If anything, it's a complete disgrace the New Yorker would roll with publishing this story.
I will say Ronan Farrow is batting a .1000 on these stories though...All those publications also passed on the CBS story of his too.
You think that given all the stories over the past year plus, people would pause before immediately calling any woman's story BS. I'm willing to believe any of the stories.
I also think it is a really, really bad look to have all the GOP older men basically dismissing any of the accusations immediately. Completely tone deaf.
