Depends who you ask, I suppose:

Several online publications have covered this news, including Salon, The Daily Beast, Vox, Jezebel, and Vice. But according to a search of Nexis for the names of Johnson, either of the book’s authors, the book’s title, or the phrase “43 allegations,” not a single U.S. newspaper has covered this story yet. The sole mention of this story from major newspapers The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the Los Angeles Times comes from an October 9 “Happy Hour Roundup” from the Post.

At least 24 other women have publicly described sexual assault or other misconduct by Trump. After writer E. Jean Carroll published a piece in June saying that Trump had raped her in the mid-1990s, several major newspapers didn’t place the story on their front page.

I have a kind of nutty theory, but just hear me out. Had Barack Obama been credibly accused of sexually assaulting many women after having boasted about his tendency to sexually assault women on a live mic, I’m going to hypothesize that this would be considered a news story of some import. Perhaps not to the level of a story with real prurient and substantive interest like “compliance with email server management best practices,” but pretty big.
