Yikes, NBC is giving CNN a run for its money.
The NBC story accusing Kavanaugh of perjury has been updated—without any note, or acknowledgement of that fact—and now includes a reference to the full September 25th testimony that flatly contradicts the claim being made. And yet NBC is still pushing it. pic.twitter.com/6Xt6ifH9m2

As Twitchy reported earlier, NBC really stepped in it when they pushed a story claiming Kavanaugh somehow perjured himself about Ramirez because his friends say they have text messages proving he knew … something.
You know what, we wrote about the story and it seemed so unorganized and far-fetched we didn’t retain much of it.
And it seems for good reason.
Twice in less than one week, the same NBC reporters pushed fake stories about Kavanaugh.
How do they have jobs?

The media is slowly eating itself.
How does that transcript in any way contradict the claims being made? It says that Kavanaugh was contacting people. That doesn't preclude that Ramirez was contacting people as well. Seems obvious she would do so.

Reading is hard.
Because he admits in testimony he had heard about her calling around. He did not know what the allegation was until the New Yorker story. Which is why exactly what he said.

So not only did NBC stealth-edit in Kavanaugh's Sept 25th testimony, they cut the quote in a way that *specifically omits* his testimony he knew about the Ramirez allegation in the days beforehand pic.twitter.com/cbphtjB4YL

Almost as if they have some sort of agenda to push

I'm still moved by Chuck Todd's passionate defense against attacks on the media.

But we know it’s all Fox News fault that NBC did this.

How is Trump escaping blame here?

HA HA HA HA HA HA.
MSM: "I don't understand why Conservatives think we are the enemy."

The left has no low

Every day we think they’ve gone as low as they can go and somehow they find some new way to be gross.
We are seeing this, especially with Kavanaugh. Don’t get us wrong, we’ve known for a long time that the Left hates people who disagree with them and will do what they can to silence them, but we had no idea that even they would sink this low.
What a gross few weeks it’s been … confirm the guy already.
