The New York Times is no stranger to fake news, but the new Kavanaugh hit piece that ran on Saturday, may have taken the cake.
The Gateway Pundit reports – The Times on Saturday ran a piece in which former Yale student and Kavanaugh classmate Max Stier claimed that in the 1980s, Kavanaugh had dropped his pants at a college party, prompting others there to grab Kavanaugh’s penis and push it into the hand of a female.
The story, though, omitted one major fact: Friends of the supposed alleged victim told the book authors that she doesn’t remember a thing about the alleged incident.
So The Times put out a correction.
“An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” The Times wrote in a correction Monday. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”
From The New York Times: Editor’s Note on Kavanaugh accuser Ramirez – Sept. 14, 2019: “friends say that she does not recall the incident.”
The Epoch Times slammed the 2020 Dem Presidential candidates for calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment over the fake news article in the New York Times. Based on the original piece, which relied heavily on a former lawyer of former President Bill Clinton, presidential contenders said Kavanaugh should be impeached or that an investigation should be launched based on the allegations.
None of them have issued statements after the correction was issued overnight on Sept. 16.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former Obama administration cabinet secretary Julian Castro, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said that Kavanaugh should be impeached.
MSNBC and CNN wasted no time promoting the fake story:
The allegation came from the yet-to-be-released book “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” by reporters Robin Pogebrin and Kate Kelly.
Walter Shaub, former director of the Office of Government Ethics heralded Max Stier’s account of Ramirez’s encounter with Kavanaugh that ran in the New York Times.
Jane Myer, of the ever further left New Yorker tweeted that Stier is no “slouch,” reminding everyone that he’s a “Rhodes scholar.”
But there’s only one problem, he’s not a Rhodes scholar. But that didn’t stop Robin Pogrebin, the author of the Kavanaugh book (hit piece on Kavanaugh), from retweeting Mayor’s false claim.
Eyewitnesses often get attacked by supporters of the one whose conduct was witnessed. Before that happens, I'd like to add that Max Stier is well respected by both sides of the aisle, nonpartisan, smart and absolutely devoted to good government without regard to who's in power. https://t.co/vqfzH4QOBi

Here are screenshots of the fake new tweets from Mayer that author Pogrebin retweeted.
One of the authors of the @nytimes piece on Kavanaugh (@rpogrebin) RT'd a @JaneMayerNYer tweet that says "Max Stier… is a Rhodes Scholar". Follow up tweet from Mayer corrects: he is NOT a Rhodes Scholar. Pogrebin has not RT'd the less popular correction.https://t.co/oMqOrnnqDv pic.twitter.com/h7Zir0W4Bf

The left was apoplectic over the prospect of another shot at destroying Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh, and wasted no time spreading the New York Times smear job around on social media. After the New York Times was forced to make a correction, the left went silent.
Fun game to play today:
Note every journo that was breathlessly tweeting yesterday about how Kavanaugh is clearly guilty
And see how many of them mention today the correction the New York Times posted
Lets you know how many of these clowns are activists, not reporters pic.twitter.com/AphNJoRLNJ

President Trump commented on the New York Times debacle today:

Lou Dobbs asked Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist what can be done about “politics of personal destruction” by the left. Hemmingway said it needs to be taken seriously and that part of the problem is that nothing was done about it the first time Kavanaugh was unjustly smeared by the left last year. Hemingway reminded the Fox News host that criminal referrals were sent to the DOJ, saying, “I don’t believe anything has been done about them.” Hemingway reminded everyone that no matter how inaccurate the reporting may be by the left, they still pat each other on the back, they “give each other awards,”
#AmericaFirst– @MZHemingway: The politics of personal destruction without evidence, like we’ve seen against Kavanaugh, has to stop. The Senators & media need to be held accountable for lies they spread about him. #MAGA #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/4JsXAtIigz

Tonight, the New York Times, in an effort to save face with the left, came out with another speculative, unfounded story about Justice Kavanaugh and yet another alleged accuser.
Mollie Hemingway responded, “Have you no shame?”
Have you any shame?

Here are just a few of the responses to the latest article by the New York Times claiming the FBI ignored Democrat Senator Chris Coons’ attempt to add “information” to the Kavanaugh case.
Phrases like the New York Times is “Antifa with a pen,” and comparisons to the National Enquirer, are sad but true, when it comes to the once highly respected news publication, that’s now nothing more than an embarrassing anti-Trump rag.
