    The New York Times Anti-Kavanaugh Bombshell Is Actually a Dud

    All that the authors write in the New York Times essay about corroborating the story is this: “Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)”

    So they corroborated the fact that Stier made the allegation to the FBI, but the authors give no indication that they have corroborated any details of the alleged incident.

    The book isn’t released until Tuesday, but Mollie Hemingway got a copy, and she writes on Twitter: “The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event.” Omitting this fact from the New York Times story is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory.

    Anyone wanna vet the "national review" propaganda outlet's claims? The story as I understand it is that the allegations were made and the FBI did not investigate.

    Every time I've given sources like "National Review" a pass and posted on the assumption their story was true, it blew up in my face. And with this OP...heh... let's just say I have every last reason in the universe to be skeptical.




    I wouldn't be surprised if it's something like "person who says they know complainant does not remember complainant mentioning it. HOAX!" But what do I know. Definitely need more than lying Trump-slurpers' words for it.

    More on Hemingway's comments that she goes into in full detail in the twitter feed linked below.

    Mollie on Twitter: "The NYT reporters, it goes without saying, downplay the significance of this and all the other many facts/stories/quotes/details that cast doubt on the unsupported allegations against Kavanaugh."

    eta: Among the dozen or so tweets, these two stand out and busts the NY Time's fake narrative.

    The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event. Seems, I don’t know, significant.

    At least thus far, Ramirez doesn’t accuse Kavanaugh of anything tangible. Same as original New Yorker in which nothing was actually alleged. Just carefully suggested. Yet in NYT today, authors alleged penis thrusting. Curious what basis for charge is. Important to focus on facts.

    Yeah, I’ll wait before taking the word of an editor from national review.

    So, what are they saying? I haven't followed this story. Ole Brett the 'Half Barrel' Kavanaugh pulled his weiner out and shook it around? Kinda odd these stories keep following him around.

    But, they got the story second hand and the girl is denying it ever happened? Or, that she can't remember it happened? Repressed memories are a real thing. Or.. drunken exposure, if you're used to drunken exposure, could be easily forgotten.

    Hemingway isn't giving you her word. She took direct excerpts from the new anti-Kavanaugh book that reveal the biased Time's reporters account.


    Mollie on Twitter: "So I’m reading the new anti-Kavanaugh book by shockingly (really) biased reporters at NYT. All claimed anonymous sources are anti-Kavanaugh while all but a tiny few on-record sources are downright effusive. Just interesting how highly they contradict each other."



    But you go ahead and believe the Time's lies by omission story instead.

    No. It says it was pushed by others into the woman's face. Nobody else seems to know about it-- including the woman.

    Is it false that the FBI did not look into it? Or did they in fact look into it and she said "nah, what?"

    I’ll wait for the book itself rather than a summarization by an editor for a right wing rag, but thanks.
