NYT Claims Trump Is the One With the Anti-Semitism Problem

February 15th, 2019 2:51 PM

September 28th, 2018 4:23 PM
The New York Times gave vastly different views of Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford regarding their extraordinary testimony, consistently chiding Kavanaugh as "angry" and "aggrieved" and calling his judicial temperament into question -- as if anger wouldn't be a perfectly reasonable response to false allegations of sexual assault.
