As Twitchy reported, Fox News’ Martha MacCallum conducted an interview with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, where Kavanaugh defended himself against allegations of sexual assault and even shared some news about when he lost his virginity.
Wow: Tonight, Fox News's Martha MacCallum will have an exclusive interview with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh

Before the interview even aired, Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan noted that Kavanaugh’s appearance checked all of the boxes in Kavanaugh’s favor, including a female interviewer:
Female interviewer, check. Fox News, check. Bill Shine approved, check. When an "exclusive interview" promises to be a challenge-free infomercial. https://t.co/fFCtNgZplO

Wife at your side, check.
— Margaret Sullivan (@Sulliview) September 24, 2018
Is she suggesting that a female interviewer can only contribute to what promised to be “a challenge-free infomercial”?
Funny how when a woman who has built an incredible career as a fair journalist is set to interview Kavanaugh, this is how the left reacts. They don’t care about fairness, they care about destruction. https://t.co/1th34em0Gk

.@marthamaccallum is a great reporter & anything but an easy interview. Don't insult her in trying to make whatever your point is (or 'female interviewers' more broadly, for that matter) https://t.co/hhNR6ldHsI

I'm confused… is "Female" now a disqualifying feature? https://t.co/PhcEWBKpQ0

The female interviewer has a name. And aren't women free to be employed by whoever they want to be employed by?
Your tweet looks pretty darn misogynistic, ngl. https://t.co/Qju8rIHVPt

This is a Washington Post ‘media columnist’ sneering at an interview she hasn’t seen, and apparently ignorant of @marthamaccallum’s previous interviews, awards, and curriculum vitae as a journalist. But hey, that qualifies Sullivew to be on @ReliableSources so there’s that. https://t.co/0VRsSsBUlJ

I don't see Christine Blasey Ford scheduling any interviews on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, or CNN. All of them would be challenge free. But apparently the diva of ditz is waiting for her Norma Desmond moment before Senate Judiciary Committee. https://t.co/2EUDeyclqq
