Default NYT updates Kavanaugh 'bombshell' to note accuser doesn't recall alleged assault

America's newspaper of record is back at it, publishing a sensational attack on a Republican only to have to "clarify" it into insignificance later.

Quote:
The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh.
Even after a string of these false attacks directed at President Trump, Democrat Presidential candidates and nearly all mainstream media accept the NYT story as accurate with no question. Once again Kavanaugh is a proxy for Trump so Resistance rules of the ends justify the means are in play.

The NYT update to the article admitted there was no evidence to support the smear but nonetheless included a graphic description of the lurid activity along with the bland notation that a "classmate" of Kavanaugh's claimed to be a witness. Conveniently omitted is the so-called witness's ties to the Clintons and his contentious history with Kavanaugh. None of that prompted suspicion by the NYT vaunted fact checkers.

Quote:
The Times' revision says: "Editors' Note: 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 (lurid smear edited out). 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."
The NYT displays a complete abdication of any journalistic standards but the story is amplified and treated as fact because it's in the NYT. Just as mental health professionals have shored themselves out to the Resistance by diagnosing President Trump based on their political beliefs now the venerable NYT displays its utter devotion to the Resistance again.

To the left, facts are of no importance and due process is a meaningless concept when there are Republican scalps to be had. Simply the seriousness of the allegation is all that is required to remove their opposition from office.

One of the saddest, if not scariest, episodes in the history of our Union, was the Kavanaugh debacle. The injustice done to the moral Justice of Brent Kavanaugh ripped the threads loose.

We will have another Trump SCOTUS nominee in his term. This one or the next. I don't know, but fear the entire garment may soon come undone.

Don't be fooled. These attacks on Kavanaugh are more than just trying to get him removed from the bench. They are a warning to other potential SCOTUS nominees that this will happen to them too. The left deals in fear and intimidation. It's their way or the highway and anyone willing to challenge them will find out just how tolerant they really are.

They tried this **** with Clarence Thomas and it didn't work. It did work with Kavanaugh and it won't work when they try the same dirty trick again in 20 to 30 years from now.

Well the word is out, any Trump nominees, for any court, will be met with the same accusations. Leftist women are lining up to make accusations about anyone and everyone.

And Democrats already believe them, even before the words come out. The MSM already has the stories written, they just have to fill in the names

Nonetheless.

Quote:
Some Democrats running for president, including Kamala Harris, Julián Castro and Elizabeth Warren, are now calling for Kavanaugh's impeachment.
Harris claims impeachment is necessary so the FBI will investigate the claim. The FBI is supposed to investigate an incident where the victim has no memory of the crime and the story was told by a political operative with no direct knowledge of the incident.

The validity of the allegations rests, not on the veracity, but entirely on the implied seriousness of the charges. All is corroborated by the political bent of the defendant. That's the logic of the left.

It worked for Anita Hill.
