Ronan Farrow Discredited For Shoddy Report on Second Accuser
Mia Farrow’s son Ronan Farrow is facing heavy criticism for his New Yorker report with Jane Mayer detailing the alleged memories of Deborah Ramirez, who claims that Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself at a high school party.
Even the mainstream media is being tough on Farrow, likely because the shoddiness of the second accuser report stands to threaten the thin credibility of the entire Resistance movement’s plans to sink Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
Politico reports: “On ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday morning, Farrow said, “We wouldn’t have run this if we didn’t have a careful basis of people who had heard at the time and found her credible.” Host George Stephanopoulos replied: “But by your own admission, no eye witnesses of the incident.” A highly placed story on the Fox News website titled, “‘LAZY AT BEST’: Mag’s flimsy reporting on Kavanaugh accuser has critics howling,” called the New Yorker report “sketchy” and quoted several people — mostly conservatives — from Twitter who agreed. In another example, The National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke wrote that he was “struggling to remember reading a less responsible piece of ‘journalism’ in a major outlet.” Breitbart, The Daily Wire and The Daily Caller all weighed in too.”
