If only journalists were as dogged when it comes to reporting the news as they are when it comes to throwing the book at Brett Kavanaugh.

Remember when journalists practiced journalism? Those days are long gone, it seems.

In response to NBC Capitol Hill reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell’s account of a meeting between Orrin Hatch and Brett Kavanaugh:

Some of our favorite Real Journalists™ are — dare we say it? — pouncing on the account as evidence that Kavanaugh is lying:

There is literally nothing Brett Kavanaugh could say that these hacks wouldn’t try to twist.

These journalists’ logic, that is. A pretty gaping one, in fact.

Not so incredible when you consider whose “logic” it is. This is pretty much par for the course with these people.

What a dumb time to be alive.
