Just when you think things couldn’t sink any lower with the media, The New York Times and NBC News both told the country to “hold my beer” as they broke out the shovels. On today’s show, we dissect the ridiculous stories of an alleged bar fight from 1985 involving Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the NBC News interview with Julie Swetnick, the woman who claims a teenaged Kavanaugh was involved in multiple gang rape parties in the early ’80s.
Listen to the show:
In a story they likely thought would be big news, The New York Times reported Judge Kavanaugh may have thrown ice at a guy in 1985. ALL PRESSES WERE STOPPED at the massive revelation. No arrests were made and it was a stupid story that turns out to have been written by a “reporter” with a deep hatred of Judge Kavanaugh’s constitutionalist views.
New York Times reporter and Yale Law School lecturer Emily Bazelon, on the day Kavanaugh was nominated, tweeted, “I strongly disassociate myself from tonight’s praise of Brett Kavanaugh. With respect, he’s a fifth vote for a hard-right turn on voting rights and so much more that will harm the democratic process and prevent a more equal society.”
This was just one of her anti-Kavanaugh tweets. Was there no one at the Times to write this joke of a story without a history of attacking him? Probably not.
Julie Swetnick, the woman who claims Kavanaugh ran gang rape parties as a teenager, is changing her story. In an interview with NBC News that never should have aired because it was so beneath any standards of journalism, she names “witnesses” from those parties who have no idea who she is or are dead. You couldn’t make this stuff up. Actually, it appears that you can.
