The fake news media is at it again, and today’s culprit is HuffPo writer Emily Peck.
“I. Am. Dead,” wrote lead editor at Independent Journal Review Jason Howerton on Twitter.
Along with his post, he attached two Peck headlines. The first, from July 11 says “Playing Up Brett Kavanaugh As a Good Dad to Girls is Shameless,” and depicts a terrible photo of Kavanaugh with President Donald J. Trump. The second, from June 2017, reads “Men Really Do Get Less Sexist When they Have Daughters,” and shows Barack Obama smiling at his daughter Malia.
The obviously contradictory headlines made Peck the laughing stock of the internet for a few hours. Eventually, she tried to defend herself by claiming that the pieces do not actually contradict each other.
“I get the criticism, especially if you only read headlines,” she wrote. “And that seems to be where this is at. But if you read both pieces they don’t contradict each other. Also, to those of you criticizing me, I’m not sure ‘you look Jewish’ counts as a thoughtful critique.”
BLP decided to take a deeper dive to see if the headlines are indeed in opposition.
“The whole enterprise pushes the narrative that this man is a friend to women. Maybe even a feminist,” says the first piece. “After all, he spoke winningly about how his mother ‘overcame obstacles’ to become a trial judge — a signal, perhaps, that he understands the kind of systemic discrimination women once faced. He spoke of trying to bond with his daughters. Clearly, he must respect girls and women. Or at least that’s the message.”
The essential claim is that Kavanaugh’s having daughters will have no bearing whatsoever on his work, with the implicit suggestion that since he is a white male Republican, he is a sexist.
Onto the second piece, which explicitly states that a well-regarded study from Harvard says that men in the workplace who happen to have daughters treat women more favorably than men who do not.
“But the daughter effect isn’t merely anecdotal, and it doesn’t simply change men’s attitudes,” says the second piece. “It can also have profound economic consequences says the piece from last year. A new study from researchers at Harvard offers perhaps the most compelling evidence yet: Venture capitalists who have daughters are more likely to hire women to work at their firms and those more diverse firms see improved financial returns.”
So indeed, the pieces do contradict one another. Another example of the fake news media trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the public at large to suit its own agenda.
Apparently Peck forgot that the internet is forever.

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”
The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.
President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.
President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.
“Where is Doctor Fauci?”
Watch the exchange here:
“Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.”
Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.
Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.”
As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.
Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
