You know what this whole New York Times Brett Kavanaugh debacle was really lacking? A masochism factor. It seems the New York Times can’t stop looking for new ways to punish themselves.
“A new uproar.” Prompted by an editorial decision to run with a blatant smear job by a pair of women who apparently had some kind of axe to grind. But hey, maybe sharing this letter to the editor will help shift the focus back to Brett Kavanaugh being a terrible person who’s basically gotten away with murder:
"Brett Kavanaugh sits as a justice on the highest court in this land, and the allegations against him have been ignored and buried. How have we gotten to this point? But more important, what can we do to rectify it?" #NYTLetters https://t.co/lMdrWkdKjS

Ellen Silverman Popper from Whitestone, Queens, is very upset that we’re living in a “brave new world that glorifies bad behavior,” a brave new world in which we’ve all been kept in the dark about the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. And hers is the take the New York Times has chosen to highlight.
I agree Kavanaugh should not be on the court and I'm not one of his fans, but I can't believe you're still running with this story.

According to the New York times: "wall-to-wall 24/7 NeverEnding coverage equals…buried"

What accusation against Kavanaugh was ever “buried?”
Every accusation — even the most ridiculous— got wall-to-wall breathless coverage. Remember the “ice throwing?” The “bar confrontation?” The “Rhode Island boat?” ALL were hoaxes but media ate them up.https://t.co/oJArZWnX5i

Allegations were not just covered. They were trumpeted throughout media, reported endlessly to FBI, Congressional committees, individual Congressmen/Women, and were aired openly on TV in the hearing. The only burying being done is NYT burying the last semblance of journalism.

Seriously. It’s just pathetic at this point.
Haven’t you embarrassed yourselves enough? Just stop.
