Democrats will never let go of their desire for revenge overseeing the Senate confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
With the Presidential Election just months away, the left found the perfect time to strike.
And Brett Kavanaugh was seeing red as this sex crime charge resurfaced out of nowhere.
The New York Times generated a massive controversy with a story about Tara Reade’s allegations that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.
In the story, the Times tried to cover up for Biden by deleting language that stated women previously alleged Biden made them feel uncomfortable with uninvited touching, kissing and hugging.
The Times also took weeks to report these allegations and Times media reporter Ben Smith questioned Executive Editor Dean Baquet about the Times’ editorial decisions with regards to Biden and how the paper jumped in with both feet to publish up-to-the-minute allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, no matter how absurd.
Baquet ridiculously claimed that Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was a “live, ongoing story” as opposed to the Presidential Election.
“Kavanaugh was already in a public forum in a large way. Kavanaugh’s status as a Supreme Court justice was in question because of a very serious allegation. And when I say in a public way, I don’t mean in the public way of Tara Reade’s. If you ask the average person in America, they didn’t know about the Tara Reade case. So I thought in that case, if The New York Times was going to introduce this to readers, we needed to introduce it with some reporting and perspective. Kavanaugh was in a very different situation. It was a live, ongoing story that had become the biggest political story in the country. It was just a different news judgment moment,” Baquet claimed.
Baquet insulted readers’ intelligence by stating Kavanaugh’s confirmation was in doubt while no one had heard of Reade.
The only reason Kavanaugh’s confirmation was in doubt was because the fake news media promoted Christine Blasey Ford’s unsubstantiated and baseless allegations 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
In comparison, The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC never mentioned Reade’s name once over the span of several weeks.
Joe Biden’s nomination may have been in doubt had the fake news reported with as much fervor on Reade’s credible allegations – Reade told associates at the time of the alleged assault – as they did Christine Blasey Ford’s absurd and questionable story.
Smith also asked Baquet why the Times waited weeks to run Reade’s story but published a story the day Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, stepped forward with clearly false charges about Kavanaugh being at parties in high school where gang rapes occurred, and if he thought these two stories lived up to the Times’ standards.
“I do. The standard, to be really simple, is that we try to give the reader the best information we can come up with at the time. And we try to give the reader the information they need to make their own judgments. Unless we can make the judgment. And Kavanaugh was a running, hot story. I don’t think it’s that the ethical standards were different. I think the news judgments had to be made from a different perspective in a running hot story,” Baquet responded.
Critics noted that – yes – the two stories did meet the Times’ standards.
Kavanaugh was a conservative Republican that some on the left feared would turn out to be the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade so the media needed to pull out all the stops to destroy him.
On the other hand, Joe Biden is the Democrat nominee challenging Donald Trump and therefore the media needs to run a “prevent defense” to protect their guy.
