The New Yorker pretty much channeled every Democrat in DC with this headline question about Brett Kavanaugh and Senate Republicans:
Why haven’t Republicans abandoned Brett Kavanaugh? https://t.co/9rxF8IGvgO
— The New Yorker (@NewYorker) September 26, 2018
Did anybody want to help answer that question? Yes, plenty of people actually. Mollie Hemingway led the way:
Well, for one thing, your credibility-crushing decision to publish that joke of a story played a big role in harming the overall campaign to smear Kavanaugh as an evil monster. https://t.co/IoyxCIH3mW

Yep! And so much more:
Because you published an article with no corroboration whatsoever…. #fakenews

Because just because you ( and the others) say/write something doesn't make it true? Just a hunch. BTW, thanks for making it next to impossible for victims to be believed in the future.

Here is my prediction: Roe VS Wade will not be overturned. Another prediction: you assholes will continue to hate Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Thomas, Alito and Roberts anyway.
There is more to American judicial system than Roe V Wade. Wake up and lose your blinkers.

Just fyi this was written by some guy they met at Arby's who said he knew someone who went to school with the best friend of a girl who saw a TV show about the New Yorker. https://t.co/PF2jMxyl63

What kind of question is this? Why should they in the first place?Everything coming from the accusers are ALLEGATIONS not evidence. You have gone very low in your ethics, shame on you.

Due process? If he did it then convict him, but he is entitled to explain or present his case.
— WDA726 (@WDA726) September 26, 2018
Because the story you pushed was so bad that it was either passed over or eviscerated by every journalist that cared about the credibility of media ethics within hours of you publishing it.

better question is why haven't the Democrats abandoned Keith Ellison, even though there is actual evidence in his case.
