As Twitchy reported Sunday, The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was spending the day reading the new book on the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and “actually kind of enjoying how bad” it was. We already know that the adaptation of the book published by The New York Times left out the tidbit that the women supposedly sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh in college didn’t recall the incident, and now Hemingway is fact-checking The Atlantic’s take on the Kavanaugh smear.

She writes at The Federalist:

A new Atlantic-published, adapted excerpt of the book attempts to resurrect Pogrebin and Kelly’s anti-Kavanaugh smears but once again has a major error. “We Spent 10 Months Investigating Kavanaugh. Here’s What We Found” was published in the Atlantic.

Their reporting must not have been thorough. In a section explaining why they believe the accusers despite the lack of any evidence, they write that their emotional reaction to the claims was that the claims rang true. But they get major facts wrong….

It is not true that the alleged witnesses kept mum. This is another major error by The New York Times reporters.

Hemingway says she’ll update The Federalist piece once The Atlantic corrects this latest error.
