Christine Blasey Ford
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
Monday on CNN’s New Day, CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers battled it out with fellow CNN analyst and Republican strategist Alice Stewart over how women reacted to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Host Erica Hill didn’t even pretend to be giving a fair, unbiased question to her guests, asking, “What message does the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh send to women?”
For the second show in a row, the hosts of The View promoted the idea Monday, that newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh lied and perjured himself before the Senate during his testimony two weeks ago.
The New York Times is not taking the Kavanaugh confirmation very well. The paper has recently followed its left-wing audience down the rabbit hole of intersectionality, filling it opinion pages with emotional discourses on “white privilege,” race, gender and related topics of interest to left-wing “social justice” activists. But the dig may have hit bottom in an opinion piece by feminist Alexis Grenell keyed to Kavanaugh's successful confirmation, “White Women, Come Get Your People -- They will defend their privilege to the death.”
Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom to discuss Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley predicted that he will have a "stain" that he will "carry for the rest of his life," and suggested that conservative Chief Justice John Roberts may move further to the left because he has "great intellect," as if intelligence implies being more liberal.
Liberal media petulance and bitterness was evident on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times after the Senate narrowly confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Reporters Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos reported “A Nomination Is Rescued by a Display of Rage and Resentment.” Because how dare someone get angry over being accused of sexual assault.
With Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh newly sworn into the Supreme Court, CNN host S.E. Cupp wanted to discuss how “the media has played a starring role” in tearing down the Judge during her Unfiltered program. CNN media reporter Brain Stelter joined her Saturday evening where they defended the media’s antics and downplayed their anti-Kavanaugh fervor as simple “sloppiness.”
So what happens to the media memory of Kavavaugh vs. Ford if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed? Time's cover story on Ford illustrates they're already painting the same numbers as they did after Clarence Thomas was confirmed. Glorify the accuser as a heroine of history. On the cover were the words "Her Lasting Impact." Online, the cover story had the headline "How Christine Blasey Ford’s Testimony Changed America."
During and after the cloture vote Friday morning to move forward with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, NBC’s Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell held out hope that unnamed Republican Senators could change their minds to oppose Kavanaugh and that, amidst the onslaught of pressure (read: verbal harassment from the left), voting against the Judge is thinking “beyond reelection.”
During an interview with Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie aired Friday morning, liberal talk show host Ellen DeGeneres reacted to allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by blasting the judge for being able to “get away with” being “angry” during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which Democrats were smearing him as a rapist.
Breaking in with live coverage Friday, before and after the Senate vote to proceed onto the confirmation vote Saturday of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ABC News’s Cokie Roberts, Jon Karl, Mary Bruce, David Muir and Terry Moran slammed the proceedings and the nominee as “very partisan” and an example of how sexual assault victims would be treated. Roberts saved her harshest rebuke for Kavanaugh, claiming that he was a symbol now of every woman who has been sexually assaulted.
Almost 18 years after former Democratic President Bill Clinton left office, liberal actress and activist Alyssa Milano finally admitted on Thursday's Cuomo Prime Time that sexual assault charges against him should have been taken more seriously, although both she and CNN host Chris Cuomo avoided words like "rape" or "sexual assault" in referring to the accusations.
