The NYT Kavanaugh Smear Shows Why the Press is the Least-Trusted Institution in America
“A Columbia Journalism Review poll released this year found that half of all Americans have ‘hardly any confidence at all’ in the media, which beat out even Congress as the institution for which the public has the lowest confidence,” Marc Thiessen writes in The Washington Post.
“It’s not hard to see why. Last week, CNN reported that the CIA was forced to pull a highly placed source inside the Kremlin because of concerns that President Trump might burn him —
— when it turns out the decision to extract the source was made before Trump took office because of leaks from senior Obama administration officials.”
Then over the weekend, The New York Times published a story claiming a “previously unreported” sexual assault allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “One small problem: In the book, Pogrebin and Kelly write that the female student in question refused to discuss the incident’
and that ‘several of her friends said she does not recall it.’” The Times left that part out of its initial story, later adding a “clarification.”
One more thing the Times decided not to mention: The man accusing Kavanaugh in its story “was a member of Bill Clinton’s legal team at the same time that Kavanaugh was working for independent counsel Kenneth Starr” during the Lewinsky investigation.
