News just broke about a Justice Kavanaugh tragedy. Millions of Americans are stunned, including Kavanaugh himself. This is a horrible way to find out.
In a major act of hypocrisy, ABC News has admitted that they killed a story about Jeffrey Epstein three years ago because, at the time, it did not meet the newscast’s “standards.” But they didn’t show the same deference to Kavanaugh.
It all started when James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video in which ABC News’ Amy Robach was “caught on ‘hot mic’ in August disgustedly exposing networks decision to strategically spike bombshell investigation into Jefferey Esptein.”
Robach released a statement quickly and said this was a moment where she was expressing “frustration” that “an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air.” ABC News denied any wrongdoing as well.
Let’s circle back around to the double-standard at play. The powers that be at ABC News simply couldn’t bring themselves to run the Epstein story three years ago, despite having “pictures” and “everything,” according to Robach.
As Tom Bevan, a reporter with RealClearPolitics put it, ABC News “went wild running uncorroborated stories about Brett Kavanaugh being a gang rapist,” as did the rest of the media. This is exactly why Americans don’t trust the press.
