The New York Times, which in July devoted nearly 6000 words to Democratic lawyer Michael Avenatti, buried the domestic abuse accusations on page A-22 of the paper, Thursday. The story by Rebecca R. Ruiz and Matt Stevens describes Avenatti, who is repesenting porn star Stormy Daniels, a “fierce advocate of women’s rights.”
CNN’s New Day and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, two programs with a combined six hours of air time, on Thursday managed a total of 67 seconds on the felony abuse arrest charges against Michael Avenatti. This is despite their previous fascination with the porn lawyer and Democratic antagonist to President Trump.
At 5:45 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, TMZ first broke the news that Democratic lawyer and 2020 presidential hopeful Michael Avenatti was arrested by Los Angeles police on domestic violence charges. Despite the fact that Avenatti granted them over 200 combined appearances on their networks, both CNN and MSNBC downplayed the charges. MSNBC brushed over it while CNN spent part of the time correcting TMZ and touting people who claimed Avenatti wouldn’t hurt anyone.
On Thursday night and Friday morning, ABC and NBC newscasts refused to cover not one but two bad stories for liberal media darling and attorney Michael Avenatti as Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (IA) requested the Department of Justice investigate Avenatti and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick for their behavior during the confirmation fight.
In a big legal victory for President Trump, a federal judge late Monday tossed out a defamation lawsuit filed against him by porn star Stormy Daniels and her lawyer/possible 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti, demanding they pay Trump’s attorneys fees. When it came to Tuesday mornings’s broadcast network newscasts, the news all but fell on deaf ears with only 63 seconds of coverage and none mentioning the judge’s request that Daniels pay for Trump’s attorney fees.
The battle for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Justice on the Supreme Court has resulted in a great tragedy. Michael Avenatti's appearances on television are likely due to be sharply cut back. Why? Because liberals in the mainstream media are now placing the blame for the failure of the Democrats to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation squarely at the feet of Avenatti.
It was inevitable that it would happen so why did it take so long? What? A Michael Avenatti parody.
The reason for the inevitability of the Avenatti parody commercial created by Tom Elliot, the founder of Grabien Media is that Avenatti has been so ubiquitous on television. NewsBusters on June 15 reported that Michael Avenatti made 173 television interview appearances since just March 7 of this year. Add in his appearances since June and Avenatti must have reached a total of over 200 and still counting.
Few in the media are remembering to be journalists instead of partisan hacks when it comes to examining the serious and salacious allegations being made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But Thursday morning, just a few hours before Judge Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford appeared before the Senate to testify, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota had on lawyer Michael Avenatti on New Day to press him on these claims, made by his client Julie Swetnick, the third woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
A handful of cable pundits were less than thrilled to see highly political porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti injecting himself into the Judge Brett Kavanaugh controversy.
Despite the fact that even Senate Democrats remain quite wary of embracing Michael Avenatti's wild charges against Brett Kavanaugh based on bizarre extrapolations of seemingly innocent comments in his high school yearbook, the New York Times is now following his lead in debased speculation.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Tuesday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly slammed Stormy Daniels attorney and prospective 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Avenatti for making unsubstantiated “outrageous allegations” against Brett Kavanaugh. The morning show host thought the claims were so irresponsible that she told viewers “they will not be repeated here.”
As the Media Research Center’s Bill D’Agostino and Rich Noyes discovered back in May of this year, the liberal media have a fetish for porn star Stormy Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti (or as Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls him, the “creepy porn lawyer”). Apparently, Avenatti’s plethora of TV appearances meant he met a benchmark for a “serious” run at being president in 2020, according to CNN media reporter Brian Stelter on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.”
