In a move that highlights conservative media’s eagerness to protect Trump’s image, a second story about E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegation was removed.

The New York Post removed an Associated Press article that detailed writer E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegation against Donald Trump, President Trump’s denial, and his multiple other sexual misconduct allegations. A source with knowledge of the decision tells Rantt Media that the post was removed upon the request of a senior person in the organization.

This comes after CNN reported that Col Allan, a former editor at the New York Post, and an old lieutenant of Rupert Murdoch, ordered the removal of Post reporter Joe Tacopino’s story outlining E. Jean Carroll’s allegation.

Here is the URL to the Associated Press story that has since been removed: https://nypost.com/2019/06/22/trump-faces-new-sexual-assault-allegation-issues-denial/

In spite of the URL clearly indicating it was a story about Trump’s denial of the allegation, it now sends a 301 redirect to the “Cars” section of the New York Post site. An archived version of the June 22nd page shows that the New York Post published an Associated Press story on President Trump’s denial of the allegations. The page was removed and redirected.
