Liberal Hacks Behind Kavanaugh Hit Piece Blame NY Times Editors for Deleting Crucial Information in Their Junk Report
On Monday night President Trump defended Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the wake of the latest debunked allegations during his New Mexico rally. President Trump told the massive and enthusiastic crowd that everyone who was involved in the New York Times report about Kavanaugh should resign.
The New York Times on Saturday ran a piece in which former Yale student and Kavanaugh classmate Max Stier claimed that in the 1980s, Kavanaugh had dropped his pants at a college party, prompting others there to grab Kavanaugh’s penis and push it into the hand of a female.
The story, though, omitted one major fact: Friends of the supposed alleged victim told the book authors that she doesn’t remember a thing about the alleged incident.
So The Times put out a correction on Monday.
“An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” The Times wrote in a correction Monday. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”
It was all just more fake news by The New York Times.
On Monday the two authors of the report, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, blamed New York Times editors for the glaring mistake in their fake news report.
Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported:
The co-authors of a new book about Brett Kavanaugh blamed New York Times editors Monday for removing a key passage from an essay they published over the weekend that laid out a new, but uncorroborated, sexual misconduct allegation against the Supreme Court justice.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly addressed the controversy over a New York Times Review essay they published Saturday that previewed their book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.”
“In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?” O’Donnell asked the reporters.
“It did,” they both replied.
“So somewhere in the editing process those words were trimmed?” the MSNBC host asked.
Pogrebin theorized that the passage was cut because it also identified the woman who they alleged had the encounter with Kavanaugh. The reporter said that editors likely cut the full passage as they cut the name of the alleged victim.
“I think it was sort of an editing, done in the haste, in the editing process, as you know, a closing section,” she said.
Both reporters denied that they intended to mislead readers in the essay.
On Monday President Trump called on reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly to resign.
