On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
On CNN, host Alisyn Camerota, referring to allegations by Christine Ford and Deborah Ramirez, spoke of "these accusations against Brett Kavanaugh—not one, but certainly two credible ones."
It has become painfully clear in recent days that the liberal media have absolutely no shame for the antics they pull. Case in point: during Monday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon began the program by railing against President Trump for calling the accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh a “hoax”. The expert he brought on to discuss it? Porn star Stormy Daniels. And of course, there was no mention of the ridiculous “gang rape parties” accusation her lawyer leveled against Kavanaugh.
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.
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”.
On Tuesday, just one day after NBC conducted an exclusive interview with questionable Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, a panel of journalists on Megyn Kelly Today proceeded to dismantle credibility of the Michael Avenatti client. They all agreed that Swetnick’s story had significant “inconsistencies.”
Appearing on Fox News Monday night, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham blasted NBC News for airing an interview with Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick despite her serious credibility problems and the network being unable to corroborate any of her claims. The lawmaker told host Sean Hannity that the accusations were “a bunch of garbage.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough expresses real skepticism about the claims of Julie Swetnick, the Michael Avenatti client. Among other things, Joe asks: "who would continually go to high school parties where women were being gang-raped--and first of all keep going to those parties?"
Journalistic standards and ethics no longer exist. That has become painfully obvious as the Kavanaugh confirmation process has dragged on. Wednesday saw a third outlandish accusation (a fourth and fifth by nightfall) that the liberal media pounced on with a blatant disregard for the facts and no curiosity for the truth. During their evening newscasts, the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) threw objectivity in the trash as they smelled blood in the water. Buckle up.
Seeking to push back against the liberal media’s rush to convict Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh of being a serial, sexually violent criminal, Kavanaugh attorney Beth Wilkinson spent Wednesday on a media tour across broadcast and cable news, but none were as tense as her battle with MSNBC’s Katy Tur. As usual, Tur only brought the proverbial knife to a gun fight when it comes to the facts and presumption of innocence with Wilkinson emerging as the real adult.
