Two NYT writers, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly wrote a book detailing accusations against Brett Kavanaugh and like all NYT writers, they refused to let the truth get in their way.
They detailed a previous accusation that Kavanaugh placed his penis in the face of Debbie Ramirez. What they failed to tell their readers is that Ramirez herself said she couldn’t swear it was Kavanaugh who did it.
They also offered a new story about a woman who was alleged to have Kavanaugh’s penis placed in her hand. What the two writers forgot to reveal and why NYT readers are the least informed in the country is that the woman says she doesn’t remember any such episode and she had told the writers she neither knew anything about it and refused to even discuss it with them.
They wrote that in their book but not in their article that appeared in the NYT.
Carrie Severino, an attorney with the conservative Judicial Crisis Network, tweeted out the relevant page from the book, which officially releases Tuesday. (RELATED: Nine Times The Media Pushed Misinformation About Kavanaugh)
So the alleged victim refuses to discuss the alleged incident and the alleged victim’s friends say she says she doesn’t remember the alleged incident ever even happening. Yet they name her and run this anyway. https://t.co/XIbG3o0GyM

National Review’s John McCormack described the Times’ omission as one of the “worst cases of journalistic malpractice that I can recall.”
Pogrebin and Kelly didn’t immediately return emails inquiring why they left out the exculpatory evidence from their article.
