This “reporter” let the cat out of the bag about her anti-Kavanaugh hit piece
The fake news media did everything they could to torch Brett Kavanaugh’s character.
Their plans to stop his confirmation ultimately failed.
But one “reporter” just slipped up and revealed the dirty details of her plot to stop Kavanaugh.
In the days before the unprecedented Christine Blasey Ford testimony, new allegations arose.
The media tried to pass them off as “credible,” but they didn’t pass the smell test.
The New Yorker published an article about Kavanaugh’s college days that was totally uncorroborated.
One of the authors of that baseless hit piece, Jane Mayer, was recently interviewed by Elle Magazine.
She stated her true goal behind publishing the article was to prove Kavanaugh had a “pattern of misconduct.”
Mayer states in Elle:
“I think I was really advantaged by having covered the Thomas-Hill confirmation battle because basically I’d seen this movie before. In fact, I’d watched as several of the same senators had disrespected Anita Hill a generation ago, and there they were, still questioning the woman’s credibility.
“So having watched this before, I knew that key issues would be whether the judge had a pattern of similar behavior, since that helps establish who is telling the truth when there is a standoff, and whether there were credible corroborators on either side. Knowing this is why Ronan Farrow and I were so alert to the significance of other accusers, such as Deborah Ramirez. Her allegation showed that, if true, yes, there was a pattern of misconduct, and likely another side of the judge.”
Mayer has given up any credibility she had left as a “reporter.”
She admits that she could not verify Deborah Ramirez’ allegations as true.
Mayer was simply using her role to sway public opinion against Kavanaugh.
This is blatant political activism disguised as journalism.
Even former CNN Washington bureau chief Frank Sesno went on air and stated this hearsay would not have been published two decades ago during the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal.
This just goes to show you how low the bar is on so-called “journalism.”
Luckily the truth prevailed and Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh.
