On Sunday's World News Tonight, at the end of a full report on liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health scare from the weekend, ABC reporter Kyra Phillips misleadingly gave the impression that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had reacted to her health problems by ghoulishly speculating about replacing her when, in reality, she was referring to comments the Republican leader made six months ago.
During CNN’s 2019 Citizen Conference Thursday, CNN International journalist Christiane Amanpour practically bowed down to interviewee Anita Hill, calling her an “icon” who was unfairly persecuted after she accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in 1991. The British journalist railed against sexism in American politics, even relating Hill to Hillary Clinton unfairly losing the 2016 election.
On the face of it, Michael Gerhardt is qualified to serve as a CNN legal analyst on constitutional questions. He is, after all, a Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law at the UNC School of Law in Chapel Hill, and a Scholar in Residence at the National Constitution Center. But there was one part of Gerhardt's resume that CNN hid when New Day's John Berman brought him in to comment on President Trump's decision not to cooperate with the House impeachment inquiry. Gerhardt is also a long-time Democrat activist.
One of the revelations from the character assassination attempt of Justice Brett Kavanaugh by The New York Times was that Leland Keyser, an alleged witness to the allegations of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was viciously pressured by Blasey Ford’s allies to back up the claims unless she wanted to be discredited with her past history of drug abuse. Well, one of the reporters behind the hit piece did the work for Team Blasey Ford in an appearance on CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” and slimed Keyser’s rebuttal.
In Thursday’s installment of The Hill’s “Rising,” chief Washington correspondent Saagar Enjeti lit up New York Times reporters Kate Kelly and Robin Pogrebin for their smear campaign against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and grilled them on their obfuscation of exculpatory facts.
Self-described "conservative" Joe Scarborough frets that if President Trump and Mitch McConnell are successful, they will "shape the judiciary for the next 50 years." Scarborough expressed his concern in the context of criticizing Joe Kennedy for launching a Democrat primary campaign against incumbent Sen. Ed Markey in Massachusetts. Scarborough worries that money spent on that campaign will divert funds that could be used to defeat President Trump.
During a conversation on the Trump administration’s impact on the judicial branch Tuesday night, two CNN prime time hosts expressed disappointment about the administration’s progress in transforming the judiciary and slammed Christian conservatives for supporting President Trump in spite of his personal moral failings.
In the aftermath of The New York Times’ salacious hit piece accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, it came to light that the newspaper intentionally omitted key exculpatory facts. Looking at how The Times handled the publishing of this story, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume shredded the liberal rag for running with something unfit to print, even invoking the gravestone of a former Times editor.
New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly were grilled on Tuesday’s The View for omitting crucial information in their hit piece against Brett Kavanaugh published over the weekend. While Meghan McCain slammed the op-ed as a “hatchet job,” Pogrebin and Kelly acted as if they were innocent bystanders only out to seek the truth on Kavanaugh. Pogrebin self-righteously claimed they had no agenda to push and President Trump was merely using the paper for his “political purposes.”
While the news media spent all of Monday hyping the latest smear from Democrats against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, comedian Trevor Noah continued the trend into late night. The Daily Show host mocked the conservative justice as a drunk exhibitionist who was constantly “whipping his di** out” and even compared him to accused sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Of all the people MSNBC could have invited on Monday to give a cool, calm, and rationale response to the New York Times issuing a correction to its reporting that the alleged victim of an incident involving Brett Kavanaugh does not remember the incident, they chose former Obama White House Deputy Counsel Deputy Assistant to the President Christopher Kang. Kang's big takeaway from the correction was just because she doesn't remember having Brett Kavanaugh's penis shoved in her face, does not mean it didn't happen.
Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway has long been an undisputed authority on the matter of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and the liberal media’s lies and obfuscation of the facts. So, it should come as no surprise that she completely dominated USA Today D.C. bureau chief Susan Page when she tied to defend the latest New York Times salvo of poorly sourced and discredited accusations against the Associate Justice.
