1. This is the epitaph of NBC news.
Kate Snow admits that only after Grassley's criminal referral of Avenatti & Julie Swetnick did NBC consider the second woman's story "newsworthy" This story would have essentially destroyed Julie Swetnick's rape allegations and helped Kavanaugh
2. Sept 30, the woman who signed a sworn statement corroborating Julie Swetnick’s gang rape allegations, not only told NBC she never witnessed Kavanaugh spike punch or rape anyone, she told NBC she had never once seen him behave inappropriately.…
3. This second witness then told NBC on October 3 (three days prior to Kavanaugh’s confirmation) that Avenatti had fabricated her sworn statement.
Yes, read that again, that's why creepy porn lawyer is pooping blood.…
4. Nothing stopped NBC from reporting these facts as they came in. There was no valid reason for NBC to withhold this information, either from the public or from those senators arguing Kavanaugh’s fate.
5. Kate Snow's tweet quoted above implies that since the confirmation process was over, the second witnesses bombshell revelation that Avenatti fabricated her sworn statement was not newsworthy. This is a testament to NBC's fervent desire to not see Kavanaugh confirmed.
6. NBC knowingly withheld exculpatory evidence that would have helped Justice Kavanaugh had they only done the right thing.
And it would still be a bombshell and ratings gold.
But even the lure of ratings couldn't overcome their antipathy to all things Trump.
NBC is depraved.
7. The same NBC that couldn't corroborate Julie Swetnick's allegations but ran the story anyway, could not be bothered to correct the record when clear evidence came to light.
8. Whilst sitting on the above-mentioned exculpatory evidence, NBC also ran this fake news which was later revealed to be completely uncorroborated and spread by a guy who admitted to doing so on Twitter.👇…
9. So, not only didn't NBC do the right thing, they added insult to injury by publishing and propagating more fake news.
10. "While Kavanaugh was fighting for his life, NBC was happy to violate editorial standards as a means to pile on with one uncorroborated allegation after another — all too happy to try and personally destroy him" @NolteNC
11. Sometimes the most powerful words are those not spoken. Because they speak louder than those manifest.
And NBC's silence is that of a terminal malady, it's epitaph a blank slate of things left unsaid.
