Christine Blasey Ford
Thursday morning ABC’s Good Morning America played to Democrat concerns yet again over the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh, which completed Wednesday. Correspondent Terry Moran gave a completely one-sided, anti-Kavanaugh report touting everyone who was against his confirmation complaining that the FBI investigation wasn’t conducted how they wanted.
The liberal media were up in arms Wednesday after President Trump mocked Judge Brett Kavanaugh accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for having a poor memory at a rally in Mississippi the night before. But while they were perturbed by the act, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News begrudgingly admitted that Ford couldn’t remember many of the details surrounding that night. Despite that difficult admission, they failed to go into detail regarding the blatant contradictions in her testimony.
For the first time since September 10, the White House held a press briefing Wednesday featuring not only Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but also National Security Adviser John Bolton and neither disappointed as scores of liberal journalists came ready to rumble. Bolton set the tone in an exchange with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang, who seemed insulted that Bolton wasn’t giving more respect to the Palestinians by not referring to their land as a state. Turns out, Bolton had the facts on his side.
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.
