Paul Krugman’s Friday New York Times column, “Real America Versus Senate America,” is another dose of Blue State urban smugness from Krugman. He becomes the latest liberal who, while accusing Trump of violating all political norms, turns around and advocates tossing aside traditional political structures like the Electoral College, the Supreme Court, and now the Senate when they interfere with Democrats obtaining power. Krugman also asks, :how do we explain those Senate losses?" without mentioning Brett Kavanaugh.
CNN played a clip of Seth Meyers, from his Late Night show on NBC, saying: "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is recovering in the hospital after she fell in her office and fractured three ribs. Wow: if you had told me a Supreme Court Justice fell over and broke some ribs, I would have bet on the new guy." Late Night then cut to a clip of Kavanaugh saying "I like beer."
NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit is back with another whopper of an episode. After covering illegal immigration and school shootings, the fictional cop show kicks the bias up a notch by addressing the Justice Kavanaugh allegations. What could possibly go right with this?
The three networks in September deluged viewers with incessant coverage of unproven sexual abuse accusations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But when some of those claims fell apart, ABC and NBC went silent on the crumbling assertions. As reported in the USA Today, Friday, Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton to the FBI to be investigated for taking “responsibility for authoring an anonymous letter that made allegations that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her..”
Glamour magazine just unveiled its annual “Women of the Year” edition and it should come as no surprise to anyone that the majority of women featured belong to the rabid leftwing RESIST movement. When the American pop culture moment swirls around open borders, anti-gun sentiment, and all things anti-Trump, you get Hollywood style magazines with Senator Kamala Harris and the gun law kids from Parkland High School getting huge spreads.
The entertainment industry holds the distinction of originating the #MeToo movement while also being responsible for producing many of its worst transgressors. So has it dawned on people in that industry that the sex-laden TV shows and movies that flow from Netflix or HBO may be indicative of an unhealthy and often immoral preoccupation?
New York Times reporter Kate Kelly is somehow back on the Brett (now Justice) Kavanaugh beat in Monday’s paper, covering in blurry fashion Kavanaugh attending a high school reunion at Georgetown Preparatory: “At Reunion, Kavanaugh Is Hailed as Hero.” One may detect some seething between the lines of Kelly’s clipped, hostile rendition of the event: "Following allegations that he had sexually assaulted a young woman during high school, Justice Kavanaugh’s drinking, rowdy behavior and treatment of women at Georgetown Prep nearly derailed his nomination.
Jeff Flake spent the past year grandstanding against President Trump on his way out of office and still can’t get supporters in the liberal media. The Republican Senator from Arizona was mercilessly grilled on his Kavanaugh vote on Tuesday’s The View, all the while being lauded as a "moderate" voice in his party.
The Brett Kavanaugh saga has really lit a feminist fire at New York magazine, whose “Women in Power” series of interviews with prominent women (liberal activists, liberal politicians, and liberal journalist Andrea Mitchell) was published in an online series and compiled in the October 15-29 print issue. Unsurprisingly Anita Hill held the lead slot of the massive feature. The headline trumpeted “Anita Hill Won, Even Though She Lost.” Linda Sarsour, the media-celebrated Muslim “feminist."
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
New York Times’ Susan Chira, a “senior correspondent and editor on gender issues,” handed her paper’s mighty megaphone to angry anti-Kavanaugh women in “After Kavanaugh, Some Women Feel Powerless, Others Pumped Up.” Chira had nudged against the conventional liberal wisdom that all women were against Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a Sunday Review piece. But her Wednesday piece read as emotionally charged feminist propaganda: "The words they choose: Despair. Rage. Fear. Hopelessness. Determination."
