As you might be aware, a New York Times article from Sunday has since been amended to include the not-so-small detail that the alleged victim does not recall any such incident. That update nukes the whole NYT article that some Democrats are trying to use to gin up “impeach Kavanaugh” support:

But the authors of the Times’ article that has backfired also wrote an anti-Kavanaugh book, which is, ironically, where Mollie Hemingway spotted the HUGE omission from the article in the Times. For some reason, the NYT’s WH correspondent Maggie Haberman wanted to highlight that for any media pointing out the omission from the Times’ article:

Er, yeah, and that’s the problem:

Strange, right?

Right?

That’s very likely.

Yeah, that explanation from Haberman certainly isn’t the defense of the NYT she thinks it is.
