So why isnt this being brought up as it was in 1988. The press lit him up so much that he withdrew from the campaign. It is what it is. So back in the day it was a big deal but now in 2020 not one mention of it by USA MSM.

Wikipedia


The 1988 presidential campaign of Joe Biden, the longtime Democratic U.S. Senator from Delaware, began in June 1987. He was considered one of the potentially strongest candidates in the field. However, in September 1987, newspaper stories stated he had plagiarized a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock. Other allegations of past law school plagiarism and exaggerating his academic record soon followed. Biden withdrew from the race later that month.



Major controversy beset Biden's candidacy, beginning on September 12, 1987 with high-profile articles in The New York Times and The Des Moines Register.[22] Biden was accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, leader of the British Labour Party



During the Kinnock controversy, there was discussion of an incident during Biden's first year at Syracuse University School of Law in 1965. Biden initially received an "F" in an introductory class on legal methodology for writing a paper relying almost exclusively on a single Fordham Law Review article, which he had cited only once.[27] Biden was allowed to repeat the course and passed with high marks.[31] Though the then-dean of the law school, as well as Biden's former professor, downplayed the incident, they did find that Biden drew "chunks of heavy legal prose directly from" the article in question.


Now its your turn

So did his professors downplay this like President Trump downplayed the virus?

Biden is, was, and always will be a liar. He has stretched the truth so much and so often he doesn’t know what the truth is anymore. Didn’t he say that “they believe in truth not facts”. It’s convenient when you can make up what is true

That was back before "journalists and reporters" were left wing liberal hacks.

There's 100 reasons why Biden should be removed from politics. Democrats have shown they don't care, can ignore everything in their own candidate they accuse the other of, and just a total lack of class.

Trumps campaign cant bring up Bidens plagairism without being subject to people rehashing the Melania speech plagairism from 2016.
And they can't use really any of these other academic offenses without Bidens campaign bringing up the fact that Trump claimed he graduated first in his class at Wharton, which wasn't true.

So it's as simple as that. Each campaign picks and chooses their digs carefully to ensure as little turn around on them as possible.

They would be happy to have the ship hit an iceberg just because they don't like people in the bridge
