The New York Times co-authors of the book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation" made a stunning revelation to Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC on Monday. Kate Kelley and Robin Pogrebin revealed that their essay included the all important admission by the supposed victim that she did not remember the incident in question and that information was removed by the Times editors.
So far, Biden’s 1987 scandals have been a non-factor in media coverage of his current race for the White House. But our review shows that when the multiple plagiarism accusations first appeared 32 years ago, liberal journalists treated them as Joe Biden’s first big test of character on the national stage — and, in their eyes, he flunked.
Since 9:00 am ET Sunday morning, CNN and MSNBC have spent nearly four hours of airtime peddling dubious new charges of misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that allegedly took place when he was in college. The claims were first published by The New York Times late Saturday night.
The View’s “moderate” co-host Abby Huntsman came out swinging against the New York Times Monday morning, for publishing a hit piece that was full of holes against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Nearly a year after his nomination was tarnished by a media-hyped unsubstantiated accusation of attempted rape, the paper was back at it again this weekend publishing another dubious account of sexual misconduct that was even not corroborated by the alleged victim herself. Huntsman gave the liberal paper a harsh rebuke, warning them that they were helping to re-elect President Trump.
The New York Times’s bias and shoddy journalism played out yet again on Twitter. Over the weekend, the paper was forced to delete tweets after a bizarre series of postings meant to promote the paper’s latest hit job on Brett Kavanaugh. Regarding the book excerpt claiming that a college-aged Kavanaugh exposed himself at a party, The Times's @NYTOpinion weirdly began, “Having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun...” What?
The latest anti-Kavanaugh hit job comes in book form: “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” by New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly. An excerpt appeared Sunday: “Brett Kavanaugh Fit In. She Did Not.” That “she” is Deborah Ramirez, whose uncorroborated sexual allegation against Kavanaugh (were part of the hearings frenzy. The reporters claim a new and damaging account involving Kavanaugh and a lewd act at a party. But there was also one staggering factual omission that once again suggested the New York Times still cares more about ruining Kavanaugh’s reputation than the pursuit of truth.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss not only complained about the media and her own paper's tendency to pander to what excites the Twittersphere, but she also called out her fellow left-wingers who have been tolerant of anti-Semitism.
By now many readers have heard the tale. The New York Times, on the 18th anniversary of 9/11, tweeted out the following, bold print for emphasis supplied: “18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died.”
New York Times reporter Christine Hauser reported on a very strange happening in the art world. The Biennale of Visual Arts exhibit in Venice featured an exhibit of a stack of printouts of Hillary Clinton’s infamous “emails” -- with a surprise cameo by Clinton herself dismissing their import. Hauser helped her avoid the controversy: “The pile of papers is rather unimpressive, rebutting Trump’s efforts to make them monumental,” the materials say. “In this way, Goldsmith creates the greatest poem of the 21st century, an anti-monument to the folly of Trump’s heinous smear campaign against Clinton.”
Again showing the New York Times is at its most liberal on the issue of immigration, Times reporters Azam Ahmed and Paulina Villegas reported from Mexico City after a Supreme Court ruling allowed the Trump administration to limit asylum applications: “For Most Asylum Seekers, New Rule Ends ‘All Hope.’” He wrote: "The new rule, which has been allowed to take effect pending legal challenges, is consistent with the Trump administration’s posture of hostility and rejection for those seeking protection in the United States."
New York Times' Rome bureau chief Jason Horowitz travelled with Pope Francis on the pope’s recent round-trip to Africa. Horowitz’s previous reporting clearly shows his affection for the politically left-wing emphases of this pope, especially on migrant rights and the environment, and a mutual hostility to American critics. Under two datelines marked “Aboard The Papal Plane,” Horowitz let Pope Francis fly, nodding along to the pontiff’s left-wing political views versus "ultraconservative" American Catholics.
New York Times political reporter Astead Herndon’s “Political Memo” Wednesday hails from a Trump rally in Fayetteville, N.C., on Monday (in the district that held a special congressional election won by Republican Dan Bishop the next day), under a loaded headline that suggested both Trump and his rallygoers were racist: “To Message of Racial Division and Fear, Crowd Responds With Cheers.” Reporter Annie Karni laid out similar tropes to characterize Trump’s speech to a conference commemorating black colleges and universities, in this case inserting racial allegations where none were brought up: “Trump Glosses Over Taunts to Focus on Black Gains.”
