An alleged reporter at POLITICO told a lie about sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh that would have made Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels proud, and then defended it upon receiving righteous ridicule from sane people.
“Kavanaugh responses (so far):” Tweeted Edward-Isaac Dovere, POLITICO’s Washington correspondent. “there was no incident, it was a long time ago/who’s to say what counts as assault?, he says he didn’t do it, should high school be held against him?, it can’t be proven either way, there’s no time to look into it, maybe someone else did it.”
The phrasing of the Tweet quite obviously suggests that these several responses were given by Kavanaugh himself, which is untrue. More then 5,000 people responded to the Tweet, mostly ridiculing Dovere.
“Please provide links to him saying each of these things,” Tim Carney, an opinion editor at the Washington Examiner said.
In fact, Kavanaugh has unequivocally denied the allegations – twice.
“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said in a Monday statement. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making the accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”
On Thursday he doubled down, saying nearly the exact same thing.
But that did not stop Dovere from digging himself a deeper hole.
“that old yarn where people willfully or carelessly misread a tweet to suit their own rage machine, as some now are doing with this – doesn’t say these are *Kavanaugh’s* responses… or is the thought that he’d be talking about himself in the third person when citing the denial?” he said.
Instead of correcting his clearly misleading Tweet, Dovere accused nearly 5,000 Twitter users of “misreading” his message. The difference, he claims comes down to semantics. He said “Kavanaugh responses,” not “Kavanugh’S responses” (emphasis added in case you missed that ever-so-slight grammatical difference that only arguably changes the meaning of the original Tweet).
If only the mainstream press would report with such nuance when it comes to, for example, President Trump’s immigration policies. But that would ruin the narrative that Trump is a racist.
The response to Dovere’s Tweet is a positive sign that shows that fewer people are willing to accept mainstream media double-speak, and are no longer afraid to question a misleading narrative when they see it.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
