Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak was brazen in advancing a particularly audacious partisan argument -- that getting angry at being called a rapist by millions of people means you lack judicial temperament – on the front of Saturday’s New York Times: “Nominee’s Diatribe Poses Threat To Court’s Neutrality, Some Fear.” The online headline added an adjective: “A Bitter Nominee, Questions of Neutrality, and a Damaged Supreme Court.” Occasional columnist Roger Cohen advanced a similar phony argument in more virulent, racial terms.
The New York Times editorial page on Friday joined the paper's news pages in criticizing Brett Kavanaugh’s “angry” tone in defending himself against uncorroborated assault allegations during his Senate Judiciary Committee testimony on Thursday. And former executive editor Jill Abramson doesn't seem to know what “corroborating evidence" means.
The New York Times gave vastly different views of Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford regarding their extraordinary testimony, consistently chiding Kavanaugh as "angry" and "aggrieved" and calling his judicial temperament into question -- as if anger wouldn't be a perfectly reasonable response to false allegations of sexual assault. The paper was clearly disappointed with Sen. Lindsey Graham for his fierce attacks on Democrats.
Men, get ready. The feminist rage is upon you. In light of the heated Kavanaugh/Ford hearings and Republican senators’ push to install Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice on Friday, the left has combusted, particularly unhinged women who see this as their doom.
Tuesday’s Hardball saw host Chris Matthews and a few of his guests come locked and loaded for battle, illustrating the left’s rabid desire to convict Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh in the court of public opinion and perhaps a future court of law based on, at best, wobbly evidence. With cameos from SiriusXM’s Zerlina Maxwell and everyone’s favorite fake Republican in The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, Matthews had plenty of help in the assassination of Kavanaugh’s character plus those who support him.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace gushed over allegedly right-leaning New York Times columnist Bret Stephens excoriating Senator Ted Cruz in his latest column, in which he cracked that the Texas Republican would "sell his family into slavery" to win an election.
The Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus announced last year it was closing after a 146-year run, largely because of high operating costs, costly legal battles with animal rights groups and declining ticket sales, especially after elephants were retired from the show. Brett Kavanaugh's embattled nomination for the Supreme Court has become a circus, and it's time for the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider closing it to the public.
While most of the liberal media have been silent on the latest developments in the domestic abuse allegations against DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison, CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday brought up the issue of the liberal double standard between Ellison and U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his show. And on her Saturday show, right-leaning CNN host S.E. Cupp also raised the double standard issue.
Ah, yes, “David ‘Rodham’ Gergen” only brings the best political analysis to CNN as a senior political commentator!! Oh wait — what did he say on Thursday’s AC360? Oh, nevermind. Anyway, Gergen offered quite the malarkey on the Brett Kavanaugh fiacso, telling host Anderson Cooper that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is quite the underdog as it’s “Christine vs. Goliath” with few resources against Kavanaugh, the Republican Party, the White House, and possibly a female Republican lawyer doing the questioning in order to “impugn and discredit” her.
On Friday's New Day show on CNN, during a discussion of the upcoming congressional midterm elections and high desires by Democrats to defeat Texas Senator Ted Cruz, CNN Politics senior writer Harry Enten actually declared that, "unfortunately," Cruz is ahead of Democrat Beto O'Rourke in most of the polls.
Following on the heels of his Wednesday show peddling falsehoods and conspiracy theories regarding the sexual misconduct claim against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews doubled down for Thursday’s edition plus took the gross step of ranking the Kavanaugh claim as worse than the spousal abuse alleged by Rob Porter and the alleged pedophilia by Roy Moore.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN misleadingly reported a new version of a similar story from earlier this year which suggested that the Trump administration had incompetently "lost" about 1,500 illegal immigrant children who had been in HHS custody. But the first version of the story had already been debunked earlier this year, and, on Thursday's show, CNN reporter Tal Kopen admitted that the story was not as bad as hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman initially made it sound.
