New York Times Adds Correction to Kavanaugh Smear Piece to Admit Alleged Victim Didn’t Recall Incident

New York Times Adds Correction to Kavanaugh Smear Piece to Admit Alleged Victim Didn’t Recall Incident

“The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident.”

Over the weekend, The New York Times dropped a “bombshell” on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s years at Yale University. The excerpt from an upcoming book claimed a former student witnessed Kavanaugh exposing himself and forcing a female classmate to touch his penis.

Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist noticed late Sunday The Times added a correction to its piece. The publication admitted it did not mention “that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say she does not recall the incident.”

The excerpt comes from the book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation by Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly.

It surrounds a situation from former classmate Deborah Ramirez, which came out in The New Yorker last year during Kavanaugh’s confirmation. However, even in the article, Ramirez never names Kavanaugh as the male student who exposed himself to her.

At that time, The Times tried its best to corroborate the story, but no one ever did. Not even Ramirez.

That did not stop The Times and the left from using the Ramirez story against Kavanugh then and now.

The book by the authors made note that Ramirez declined an interview and this fact, but The Times left it out of its article.

This is where Hemingway comes in.

Added at the bottom:

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

The fixed portion (emphasis mine):

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier; the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say she does not recall the episode.

Even during their investigation, Pogrebin and Kelly could not corroboration that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Ramirez.

Instead the authors continued their war against Kavanaugh because “their ‘gut’ tells them that Ramirez’s claim is correct.'”

This is all the Dems, the media, and maybe some of the never Trumpers want. Controversy. Everybody within 6 degrees of Trump is corrupt, evil, doing illegal things, and may eventually end up in jail. And the attack of Kavanaugh is just to help invalidate future decisions from the Court that do not go the way the media and Dems want it to go.

One piece of evidence that it is a strategy. And one that has been in play for a long time:

    A key part of the strategy is the passive angle. By making it clear that people in Trump’s sphere are likely to be attacked – and not just smeared by the media, but shouted down in public, etc. – everyone who may in the future be asked to participate or may simply think about it, will now think twice. Do I want this odious treatment for me and my family?

    Double dip.

    Thank God for Mollie Hemingway (and Carly Severino ) ! You can’t get through their book without sickness in the stomach at the breathtakingly disgusting whores in the Democrat Senate.

    It is clear (does ANYONE seriously dispute ?) that the Democrats are fighting a scorched earth campaign to derail Trump from picking the next Supreme Court Justice within the next 6 years. They will stop at ab-so-lute-ly NOTHING. That next appointee is the whole ball game for them. MUCH more important than other issues combined. With a 6-3 minority on the Court, their progressive agenda is dead, and for at least 20 years.

    Any idiot knows that Trump is going to win … in a downpour … at the ballot box in 2020. So therefore, the Dems are going ‘all in’ at derailing Trump before the election, and, if they can’t do that, at least subtracting Kavanaugh from the Court. Every move they make is transparently in furtherance of that political goal.

    Good luck.

    The substantive ‘legs’ takeaway from the patent Kavanaugh ‘flag-waving’ smear is the acceleration of the tragic demise of the “Grey Lady.” What these deranged elitist whores have done to a once sacred American institution is heartbreaking to any serious intellect. When I was in college, many years ago, a student writing a term paper … anywhere in the Country … would cite the New York Times before the Holy Bible. Literally true !

    Today, let’s just say, I confess to stealing the rag for the crossword puzzles, but I have to throw it away afterwards.

    My parakeet died.

Interesting that Stier and Kavanaugh were Yale classmates and while Kavanaugh served on the Starr investigation into Clinton/Whitewater, Stier was junior counsel to David Kendall.

_______________

I remember reading about the so-called incident with Ramirez. She initially said she was so drunk at the party that she wasn’t even sure if it was a penis that was shoved in her face or a rubber dildo. It was only after she realized that the Dims needed another Kavanaugh accuser that her memory magically clarified after several decades.

But now the NYT drags forward another woman, who never made an accusation and who apparently doesn’t even recall the incident that supposedly happened to her (and that nobody else claims to have seen, except one obviously-biased Clinton lawyer), to “support” the ludicrous claims of Ramirez, claims that never passed the giggle test in the first place.

This is some stellar reporting. Half-baked claims from decades ago, that even the so-called “victims” can’t or won’t confirm, and no credible witnesses can support. The NYT is a disgrace.

NYT should be liable, this is as defamatory as it gets, and it was deliberately published in a way that it was difficult to defend against. Media that published such low and filthy lies does not deserve protection!

    The NYT didn’t even fire the reporters. Apparently these gross and public errors are the best that NYT can do. Who is going to buy a subscription to junk like that?

    Milhouse in reply to Cogsys. | September 17, 2019 at 1:22 am

    It’s not defamation. The story merely reports what the book alleges, and that’s perfectly true. The book’s publication is a legitimate news story. The omission of the fact that the alleged “victim” (if she is even alleged to have been a victim) has no such recollection is shoddy journalism, but not defamation.

Bill was a rapist and HRC was an aggressive enabler. Where is the NYT outrage?

If the left wants to ban straws perhaps they shouldn’t turn grasping at them into a cottage industry.

Is that an important detail?

“that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say she does not recall the incident.”

To say, “I can’t remember,” means the incident may have happened but my memory is faulty, and thus Kavanaugh still has a cloud hanging over his head.

The problem here is that we don’t have the person’s exact words. What we have instead, is a paraphrase of a paraphrase. A person’s words can be twisted around or taken out of context and be made to mean almost anything. In all likely hood the student in question probably said something like, “That never happened. If something like that happened I certainly would remember it.”

I doubt there are as many as a handful of college graduate Democrats who didn’t participate in equally stupid and obnoxious behavior while they were in school, especially if they belonged to a fraternity. Not in my day, of course. We were all sober, thoughtful scholars.

The left trots out liars every day and prints their words in media.

And far too many people that claim to be conservatives support them. Like with Moore in Alabama. It’s entirely possible to dislike Moore and still understand he was smeared by the progs. Lied about by the progs. And it was the right that supported that.

You either fight back against it every time or you agree with the selective use of the lies and the smears.

The New Hate Times doing what it does best: hatemongering.

The New York Times Reporter flashed my teenage daughter.
She doesn’t remember the incident nor that she laughed herself silly at his miniature private parts.
Remember it is the seriousness of the charge that matters, not whether it is true!

NY Times is the new National Enquirer. Hysterical fake stories, obscene lies, all obsessed with “getting” Trump. Wait till RBG drops. They’ll go nuclear. And we will be ready for them. DemocRats = Death.
