Reporters Who Put Together Smear Story On Kavanaugh Say NY Times Cut Exculpatory Info From Initial Report

The plot thickens.

The reporters who put together the smear story against Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend that allegedly detailed yet another sexual assault claim against him, have said that the publication cut the exculpatory information from their initial report before publishing.

If this is indeed accurate, then that means, without a shadow of a doubt, the Times purposefully removed the information in order to craft a narrative that painted Kavanaugh as guilty so they could potentially play a role in his impeachment.

Trending: Trump Steps Back From Insurrection Act, But Not Before Military Leaders Issue Strong Rebuke

Reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly told MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell their editors were responsible for the significant factual omission.

“In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?” O’Donnell asked.

“It did,” the reporters responded.

Pogrebin then explained the editors cut the alleged victim’s name from the story per the newspaper’s internal guidelines. But that does not explain why the key detail — that the alleged victim does not remember the incident — was also cut.

“So I think in this case the editors felt like it was maybe probably better to remove [the alleged victim’s name], and in removing her name, they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn’t remember [the alleged incident],” Progrebin said.

The article itself was adapted from a book the two reporters wrote about the whole Kavanaugh ordeal. The controversy with the article started when Mollie Hemingway, a writer for The Federalist, got an advanced copy of the book and highlighted the omission on her social media accounts.

The Times was later forced to correct the story and add the exculpatory information into the article, which essentially destroyed the narrative they tried to put together.

Yet, despite all of this information, the reporters themselves have still not stopped pushing this narrative.

This just goes to show you how dedicated the left is to destroying conservatives, especially ones put in positions of power that have a direct influence on the culture we have at large. It’s sad to think that these folks are this dedicated to destroying everything wonderful our nation stands for, but that’s the left for you.

Kavanaugh has had his reputation destroyed by unfounded claims for several years now, no doubt putting a ton of strain on his family. The left has proven they’re willing to fight dirty, so how we respond to that without selling ourselves out morally is something we as conservatives have to keep wrestling with.

Save conservative media!

Stacey Abrams Says She’s Not Joined In Protesting So As Not To ‘Distract From Their Message’

Published

on

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams came out and stated that she’s not joined in the protests happening across her state because she’s afraid her presence will distract from the message being pushed by those who are putting on these events. Abrams, who failed to win the governorship of Georgia, appeared on CNN where she revealed the reason for her absence during an interview. “I appreciate the instinct of leaders to join in these protests, but too often, our presence distracts from their message,” she said. Reports indicate that Abrams is actually on the short list of potential vice president candidates for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Abrams did reveal that she’s helping the movement responsible for the protests by helping to secure money for bail and lawyers for those who are arrested. “I understand the instinct to be there. But having been on the other side, having been an activist and a protester, I have a very visceral reaction, and my conscience tells me I need to stay out of the way and let the attention focus on the demonstrators,” Abrams added. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: As a college student, Abrams helped lead protests after Los Angeles police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, a black construction worker, in 1992. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes. Floyd lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. It seems more likely that Abrams is just trying to keep herself out of trouble by not joining in on the protests. However, she’s definitely doing her part to keep the unruly chaos active by bailing out criminals and vandals, so perhaps it’s best she not show up…

Democrats Downplay New May Jobs Report: ‘Not A Triumph,’ And ‘Not Joyous’

Published

on

The Democratic National Committee doesn’t seem to be too happy about the good news from the latest job report that actually has a drop in jobless numbers for the first time since this whole coronavirus mess started. Along with downplaying the facts in that case, they also are refusing to acknowledge that Republican led states that reopened the economy were responsible for this uptick. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “What we have in this report is a flicker of good news,” DNC Tom Perez said during a Friday press call. “We’ve gone from a Category 5 hurricane to a Category 4.9 hurricane.” Perez compared the job losses over the last three months, 19.6 million, to the worst three-month stretch of job losses under the Obama administration, 2.3 million, in the middle of the Great Recession. President Trump, Perez said, is “continuing to compete with Herbert Hoover to have the worst record of job loss in at least the last hundred years in the United States,” and blamed the “preventable” losses on Trump failing to act to contain the coronavirus pandemic earlier. The report from the Labor Department stated that the economy has gained almost 2.5 million jobs in the month of May and the unemployment rate fell down to 13.3 percent. The lockdowns are responsible for the destruction of 1.4 million jobs in April. Austan Goolsbee, an economics professor from the University of Chicago, really seemed dismayed by the fact that Trump’s economy might actually have a bit of a rebound. “They’re not a triumph. They’re not joyous.” Every party has a pooper they say. “One month or two months of rebound — if they do not get us back to the levels that we were before this crisis began,” the former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers…
