Months after Brett Kavanaugh’s explosive confirmation hearings, mainstream media outlets are seeking to cast doubt upon accusations of sexual assault against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax revealed by Big League Politics on Sunday.
In a Monday interview with Big League Politics Editor Patrick Howley, CBS News implied BLP should have declined to run the story, which documented a California college professor’s accusations that Fairfax assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic Convention.
Similarly, the New York Times has sought to scrutinize the exact process through which Big League Politics obtained its sources.
Fairfax has also stated that Washington Post declined to publish a story about the allegation.
Mainstream Media Launched Digital Mob On Justice Kavanaugh, Judge Moore
In September of 2018, the entire mainstream media hive descended upon the confirmation process of now-Justice Kavanaugh, on the basis of unsubstantiated allegations launched by Stanford Professor Christine Blasey Ford.
Similarly, the media treated accusations against Alabama Judge and Senate Candidate Roy Moore with unquestioning credibility. Moore accuser Leigh Corfman was in court the day she claims they met, because of her troubled past. Another accuser, Beverly Nelson, used a forged yearbook to advance her accusations against Moore.
The contrast between how the media treats accusations against a progressive Democrat in Virginia and prominent Republicans couldn’t be greater, in the face of strong evidence against Fairfax, and unsubstantiated claims against Kavanaugh and Moore.
In Alabama, “evidence” against Judge Moore consisted of previously unknown claims against a long-time public figure, launched by accusers of questionable credibility.
In the case of now-Justice Kavanaugh, Blasey Ford gave conflicting reports that witnesses declined to verify. In an even more wild accusation, Julie Swetnick accused Kavanaugh of being a gang rapist, with a similar lack of corroboration.
In each of these cases, the mainstream media rushed to report the allegations without the slightest hesitation about their veracity. Their rush to convict doesn’t seem to apply towards Virginia’s beleaguered Lieutenant Governor.
Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump
Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.
Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.
A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.
The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.
“I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.”
The censure resolution accuses McConnell of having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.”
McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.
Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
