NYT Hides “Multiple Key Facts” in Kavanaugh Coverage

While the Kavanaugh confirmation chaos has devolved into high school-level drama and allegations dating back more than thirty years, the New York Times is facing a #FakeNews dilemma of its own. Apparently its journalists are ferreting out the most granular of detail from SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high school days in order to do their part in the Democrats’ grand delay scheme. Case in petty point: its Monday “bombshell” detailed a reference made by Kavanaugh in his high school yearbook that was “hurtful” to a girl as part of an inside joke. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was quick to point out that the Times “hid multiple problems with its claims, including that it was sourced to a rabidly anti-Trump politician in Maryland and his associate.” But it should come as no surprise that the left media is colluding with Democrats to “bork” Kavanaugh.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Monday, The New York Times published a report alleging that Brett Kavanaugh made a reference in one of his high school yearbooks that was “hurtful” to a girl who was part of an inside joke among Kavanaugh and his football buddies. Kavanaugh and four of the guys who’d made the “mysterious” reference (“Renate Alumnius”) to a girl who a few of them said they’d gone on an “innocent date” with at some point responded by saying it was a harmless joke.

Now, the Times is getting blowback not only for the pettiness of the story but for hiding multiple key facts. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reports that the Times “hid multiple problems with its claims, including that it was sourced to a rabidly anti-Trump politician in Maryland and his associate.” Hemingway reports:

The original article published online on Monday night was quickly scrubbed of a reference to a “Mr. Madaleno.” The Times uses full names on first references to sources and titles on second references, though it was the first time his name was mentioned in the article.
