The clown show media

Long piece by Becket Adams: "Confirmation bias: Brett Kavanaugh and the major media's worst moment."
From the smaller errors to the more egregious ones (like NBC's decision to air the Swetnick interview), there’s only one thing that ties all the awful reporting together. Every single story worked against Kavanaugh, as if with a unity of purpose intended to ensure that he would never be given a fair chance to clear his good name and reach the Supreme Court.
Whether through bias or the politically-correct culture that says #BelieveAllWomen, the media never bothered to push back on these stories that - even today - have no corroborating evidence whatsoever.  It was so much easier to pick sides and develop the preferred narrative.  Shame on them.
