As Twitchy reported Monday night, the New York Times published a bombshell about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reportedly throwing ice on another bar patron as an undergraduate at Yale and being questioned by the New Haven Police Department.

As fascinating as that story was, more interesting was the piece’s co-writer: not a news reporter, but a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine who had tweeted her opposition to Brett Kavanaugh all the way back in July.

So why was an opinion writer with an obvious bias against Kavanaugh writing a hit piece on him for the news section? The New York Times addressed that question Tuesday:

Hmm … it is almost like an anti-Kavanaugh opinion writer fed documents to the newsroom for a hit piece against someone she openly opposed.

At least they fully stand behind the story of Kavanaugh not being arrested or charged with anything.
