This one lawsuit left Brett Kavanaugh smiling from ear to ear
The war over Brett Kavanaugh’s place on the Supreme Court rages on.
But it’s Kavanaugh’s critics who are on the defensive.
And this one lawsuit left Brett Kavanaugh smiling from ear to ear.
When Christine Blasey Ford stepped forward to falsely accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault at a party in high school the fake news piled on.
So-called “journalists” decided that, because Kavanaugh went to an elite private school and he and his friends were all rich and white, that they must be guilty.
This led to a fake news feeding frenzy on the supposed “underbelly” of life at the prep school Kavanaugh attended.
The Huffington Post published a story by former reporter Ashley Feimberg alleging two students at Georgetown Prep – where Kavanaygh attended high school – sold lethal amounts of cocaine to David Kennedy – the nephew of Robert F. Kennedy – in 1984.
The two Georgetown Prep students – College professor Derrick Evans and Douglas Kennedy – filed a defamation suit against the Huffington Post.
The Clarion Ledger reports:
A Gulfport professor and advocate is suing the national news website HuffPost alleging defamation involving a September 2018 story on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s days at Georgetown Prep school.
Derrick Evans’ lawsuit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport against HuffPost and its former journalist, Ashley Feinberg.
The lawsuit said HuffPost and Feinberg repeatedly defamed Evans and friend Douglas Kennedy to a nationwide audience on multiple occasions in September 2018 by falsely asserting that they helped arrange the purchase and delivery of cocaine at Georgetown Prep that resulted in the April 1984 death of David Kennedy, Douglas’ brother and the son of the late U.S. attorney general and senator, Robert F. Kennedy.
“These statements were not only false and defamatory, but outrageously so, and were published by defendants with knowledge of their actual falsity or in reckless disregard of the truth for the apparent purpose of creating a salacious story designed to drive internet traffic to HuffPost’s website,” the lawsuit said.
Conservatives believe it is high time fake news reporters be held accountable for the smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh.
Unless so-called “journalists” pay a price for their knowingly malicious smears the lies and fake news against the next conservative Supreme Court nominee will be even worse.
