The media is the enemy. No other way to put it. They have lied intentionally over and over again in the last few weeks.

And no one bothers to check.
I just got home and see a DM about a new breaking story from NBC that supposedly makes Kavanaugh look bad. I see every reporter in my timeline tweeting it so I decide to check it out.

Here is the story:…
The story suggests that based on second-hand texts between two people who know Kavanaugh, he was seeking evidence to exonerate himself from an allegation from Debbie Ramirez.

Again, no evidence he is asking anyone to lie or do anything wrong. Just exonerate him.
That's weird. Doesn't seem that bad for Kavanaugh so there must be a catch, right

Well the whole story is framed to make it look shady that he wants to exonerate himself before the accusation went public.
The catch is the ending where they essentially accuse Kavanaugh of perjury.

Wow. Really seems from that like they got him lying about when he heard the allegation, right?
Take note that they omit most of the actual transcript. All their evidence simply shows that someone in his group seemed to know Ramirez was trying to accuse him of something. Here is the relevant part of the interview Kavanaugh did:

Note: "Incident matching this description"
What NBC omits? Ramirez had been calling mutual friends for weeks looking for dirt on him. That's how we know that she had admitted she wasn't even sure it was Kavanaugh.

Here is Kavanaugh later in the same interview with the committee:
In other words, Kavanaugh had already heard and testified in the very same interview that Ramirez was calling around looking for dirt on him. He didn't know the specific allegation, but he had every reason to try to pre-empt something from her.
How does NBC print that article without acknowledging that the very same testimony they are citing included him mentioning he had heard about her having some accusation against him for weeks? Which explains why he was trying to pre-empt her accusation...
Pure and intentional dishonesty.

And now a bunch of new people will run around baselessly yelling that he committed perjury because our media has no standards.
I think I have been debunking at least 3-4 stories a day from the press since the Kavanaugh stuff started. Why do I have to do that? Why can't people count on mainstream outlets to honestly present the facts themselves?

And no other reporter could check and call them out?
To make it simple for people: Nothing in the story shows Kavanaugh discussed or heard discussion about an incident matching the description. He clearly had heard that Ramirez was looking to accuse him of something and openly said so, which led to him trying to refute her.
P.s. A few other people have pointed out that an even more egregious omission in the NBC story is that Kavanaugh was actually quoted in the New Yorker story. Which means they had to ask him about the allegation before publishing.
