The editors note that had to be added to New York Times’ Robin Pogrebin & Kate Kelly’s article on Brett Kavanaugh didn’t stop the two writers from continuing to try and spin the story into what they wanted it to be, but in the end “journalistic integrity” took another blunt force hit right between the eyes. Byron York and Tammy Bruce explain why the latest Kavanaugh smear attempt crashed and burned with all but those who will still believe no matter what:
Appears attempt to revive Kavanaugh war mostly fizzled. Twitter frenzy a week ago, but NYT did book authors no favors. Serious problem: If you wanted anti-Kavanaugh red meat, book didn't deliver. Biggest news actually supported other side. Energy quickly faded.

They’ve worn out their base, took a huge hit after Mueller. They’re trying to gin up a new outrage every two weeks. The base is exhausted and tired of being laughed at. ? https://t.co/tYbeXorqlv
