Brian Stelter did his part to remind us all just how badly the media covered the Kavanaugh-Ford story over the past few weeks. It was never about being for or against Kavanaugh, it was about truth and justice in the face of dirty politics and desperation.
It became much bigger than SCOTUS, and that Bri can’t understand that (and thinks this is just some sort of ‘for/against’ thing) tells us everything we need to know.
Whether you're for or against Kavanaugh, recognize that Christine Blasey Ford predicted this outcome. In August she chose to remain silent because she figured Kavanaugh would be confirmed no matter what. (But then her name leaked out…) pic.twitter.com/yVAynzPDAL

Ford remained so silent she contacted the Washington Post … right. Interesting isn’t it, how they’re now trying to frame Ford as some sort of selfless heroine in all of this, even though her story was never corroborated by any witnesses, she couldn’t remember when or where the incident happened, and then her team refused to release the therapy notes the FBI requested in the investigation Democrats demanded?
Not to mention she made a million bucks in GoFundMe donations, which she should probably return since she won’t be pursuing these allegations any further.
Sen. Orrin Hatch called our favorite Hall Monitor out:
“Her name leaked out..”
If the paper trail had consisted solely of Republicans instead of Democrats we would have seen hundreds of “how dare they” articles, meticulously outlining how the letter and identity had been leaked for political purposes.https://t.co/vqrlXaJ5a4

Oh, if they had proof a Republican leaked Ford’s name they’d be covering it nonstop. ‘REPUBLICANS SET SURVIVOR UP TO FAIL FOR POLITICAL GAIN.’
“……no matter what”???
In the end, Liberal smear tactics and ferocious attack on the rule of Law helped unify and Energize the Republican party. Justice Kavanaugh’s innocence and exceptional competence put him where he belongs.

She predicted her corroborated story where she couldn't remember where when what who why or how wouldn't be believed? BRILLIANT!

And it would have worked too, if not for those meddling kids!
