Christine Blasey Ford
On her show Wednesday morning, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly literally treated a New York Times story detailing a 1983 letter written by Brett Kavanaugh like a piece of garbage, crumpling up a copy of the letter and throwing it away. Even as all three broadcast networks, including her own, hyped the story, Kelly told viewers how “ridiculous” it was.
The New York Times found the Senate torn apart by the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, and blamed the lack of decorum on -- the Republicans and Brett Kavanaugh, for daring to respond to unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault and Democratic chicanery. Reporter Nicholas Fandos tut-tutted under the headline “Kavanaugh Hearing Shows Drift From Decorum.” Fandos bewailed the lost sense of senatorial civility, which conveniently coincided with Republicans and Supreme Court nominee fighting back against an unsubstantiated accusation of sexual assault.
Who better than Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of accused rapist Bill Clinton, to talk about the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh? In an interview, CBS This Morning co-hosts on Wednesday NEVER mentioned the awkwardness of talking to Chelsea about a powerful man abusing women. Awkwardly avoiding women like Juanita Broaddrick, Gennifer Flowers and others, Gayle King instead asked about different claims of assault:
In an interview with Republican Senator Jeff Flake and Democratic Senator Chris Coons on Wednesday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie feared that the FBI inquiry into allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was being “rushed” and even suggested that the federal judge may have lied under oath during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing a week earlier.
ABC, CBS and the first two hours of NBC’s morning news programs completely ignored a damning letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week by Christine Blasey Ford’s ex-boyfriend, which contradicted several of Ford’s statements under oath. The only mention of the letter during the networks’ morning news coverage came during the third hour of Today, with host Megyn Kelly.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough slams the MSM's "one-sided, biased," pro-Christine Ford coverage of the Kavanaugh nomination. He says the MSM will be surprised by how Republican candidates will be improving in the polls, in the same way the mainstream media was incapable of imagining a Trump victory in 2016.
It has become painfully obvious that nearly everyone at CNN has been afflicted by “Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome.” Symptoms included a seething hatred for conservative justices, an aversion to the truth, the inability to accurately report what the Judge had said, and a blind spot for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s blatant contradictions. And judging by the anti-Kavanaugh smears from hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon during Tuesday’s Cuomo Prime Time, both had a particularly debilitating case.
As the Media Research Center has documented since his nomination earlier this summer, the liberal media’s seething rage over Kavanaugh’s seemingly inevitable confirmation has only grown more insane as they desperately try to kill the nomination. During Fox News Channel’s Special Report on Tuesday, chief national correspondent Ed Henry diagnosed the liberal media’s mouth foaming fits as “Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome”.
As the media has largely swallowed whole Christine Blasey Ford’s story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempting to rape her while the two were in high school, President Trump’s son Don Jr. expressed concern over his sons growing up being falsely accused of sexual misconduct by the militant #MeToo movement.The hosts of ABC’s The View didn’t hide their disdain and scorn for Trump’s comments, while scoffing at the idea that women sometimes lie about being raped as an absolutely absurd idea.
Who believes another FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh will be the end of it? If the FBI finds nothing to support Christine Blasey Ford's testimony that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party, will it be enough for Democrats to vote to confirm him? Republicans say the investigation is limited to her charge and that of a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, whose allegations, detailed in a sworn affidavit, claim she was the victim of gang rape. How many more will come forward?
As everyone already knew, Democrats were never going to be satisfied with a one week FBI investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. As Friday draws nearer, journalists are aiding desperate Democrats, who see that Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations will not hold water, in coming up with a new strategy of how they will block Kavanaugh’s confirmation; namely, that he allegedly lied under oath. On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos promoted that last ditch effort in his interview with one of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.
On CNN, co-host Alisyn Camerota says that Christine Ford's accusation that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her and held his hand over her mouth to keep her from crying out "makes more sense" in light of an alleged incident in which Kavanaugh threw ice at someone in a bar.
