    After the New York Times published their latest smear of Brett Kavanaugh, the left began foaming at the mouth, claiming that the article proved that Brett Kavanaugh lied during his confirmation hearing, that he is a proven rapist, etc., etc. Those of us who actually read the article saw it for what it was: another unsubstantiated smear. Well, it looks like even the New York Times is admitting their article was fake news.The article, "Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not" was adapted from The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, the forthcoming book from...

    Morning Joe might have been more motivated by concern for Democrats than with upholding journalistic standards. But the show did today rip the New York Times for its "glaring omission" in failing to include in the original version of its article about a new accusation against Brett Kavanaugh the fact that the alleged victim doesn't want to speak and that friends say doesn't recall the incident. Joe Scarborough also criticized the Times for failing to mention that the person who brought forth the new allegation, Max Stier, was on the other side from Kavanaugh in the Ken Starr probe into...

    In a major twist, NYTimes editorial was pressured to make a correction to it’s bombshell story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, that the “alleged victim said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all.”Editors’ Note says: “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 that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be...

Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer released the report in the New Yorker from a second woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct — and this time it included a dildo.

    Ronan Farrow reported the Media Lab at MIT concealed its relationship with Jeffrey Epstein as it secretly pocketed at least $1.7 million in his donations — far more than the school has admitted publicly. The Media Lab knew the disgraced financier was a convicted sex offender, but still took his gifts and used him as an intermediary with other wealthy donors, including Bill Gates and investor Leon Black, Farrow reported for The New Yorker.Epstein helped secure at least $7.5 million from well-heeled donors for the school, including two million dollars from Gates and $5.5 million from Black, Farrow wrote, citing...

    An Iranian propaganda campaign created fake Bernie Sanders supporters online, Facebook disclosed Tuesday. In a press release, the social-media giant said it had removed 652 pages associated with political-influence campaigns traced to Iran, including coordinated inauthentic behavior that originated in Iran and targeted people across multiple internet services in the Middle East, Latin America, U.K., and U.S.” The cybersecurity company FireEye, which first alerted Facebook to the influence campaign months ago, wrote in a separate posting on its site that it had traced the campaign—including posts from supposed “American liberals supportive of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders”—to Iran through email addresses...
  • Historians Will Know This As ‘The Era Of The Witch Hunt’

    There really is nothing new under the sun. The infamous Salem Witch Trials started with a group of young girls claiming they were doing bad things because they were possessed. They then said that it was witches who caused them to be possessed, naming them without providing any evidence. The “witches” were then summarily executed. Well, eight in total, over just a few months. According to History.com: “The infamous Salem witch trials began during the spring of 1692, after a group of young girls in Salem Village, Massachusetts, claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several local women...

    Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, dismissed threats by the Trump administration to investigate his business dealings in Ukraine in an interview published Monday. Mr. Biden told The New Yorker that the first time he heard of the potential probe, a helicopter happened to be flying overhead. “I said, ‘I hope they’re taking pictures of us right now. I hope it’s a live feed of the President so he can see just how much I care about the tweets,’” he said adding he told his wife, “I don’t care. F*** you, Mr. President. Here I am,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, did conduct business during his infamous 2013 trip with his father to China, despite previous denials, according to the New Yorker in a story published on Monday. In previous stories about his connections with a China investment fund, Hunter Biden’s attorney insisted that Hunter did not conduct business during his trip. The New Yorker reveals that Biden not only met with his business partner, Jonathan Li, during the 2013 trip, but arranged for Li to shake hands with Biden in the hotel. “How do I go to Beijing, halfway around the world,...

"The president thinks out loud. Do you treat it like an order? Or do you treat it as part of a longer conversation? We treated it as part of a longer conversation," a former senior national security official told The New Yorker. "We prevented a lot of bad things from...

    After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day. Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries. Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because...

    No generous severance package for former CBS Corp. chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves. The CBS board of directors announced Monday that it has completed its investigation into the myriad allegations of sexual misconduct against its former chief and has decided there are grounds to “terminate for cause.” The most recent hit against the embattled executive came last month in the New York Times, which quoted a former actress named Bobbie Phillips who alleged that Moonves forced himself on her in 1995, when he ran Warner Bros. Television. The story came almost three months after a bombshell report in The New...

    The sugary praise, often from former critics, does his memory no favors. The past week has featured so much extravagant praise of John McCain that Jill Abramson, the former editor of the New York Times, had to admit “McCain would cringe over some of the glowing tributes pouring in.” Take this example from The New Yorker: In death, McCain had finally become one with the country that was the object of his deepest faith, and any praise lavished on him, during the funeral proceedings or at any point afterward, would redound to the greater glory of America. Yes, of course,...

    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that the The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot. Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections. Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming...
