    Allegations Were So Dicey That Multiple News Orgs Passed On The Story

    The Washington Post said "nuh uh." NBC News took a look and said, "Thanks but no thanks." The New York Times even worked the story for a week before giving up.

    On Sunday, in a story headlined "Christine Blasey Ford Reaches Deal to Testify at Kavanaugh Hearing" — about another accuser who claims Kavanaugh held her down at a drunken high school party — The New York Times buried this paragraph about Ramirez:

    "The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself."

    So the Times passed, as did the others, according to reports.

    "The Ramirez accusation has been floating around several news outlets in the past week, including NBC, NYer, New York Times, & the Washington Post per five sources. Some reporters felt uneasy with it, but it apparently passed the rigorous fact-checking standards of the NYer."






    Allegations From New Kavanaugh Accuser Were So Dicey That Multiple News Orgs — Including The NY Times — Passed On The Story
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Are you forgetting which stories you cut-n-pasted?
    I am not a PREMO member and therefore, am not afforded the protections of such.

    My guess is Soros gave her a bonus.
