Brit Hume BLASTS the NYT’s Unfit to Print Kavanaugh Report

In the aftermath of The New York Times’ salacious hit piece accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, it came to light that the newspaper intentionally omitted key exculpatory facts. Looking at how The Times handled the publishing of this story, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume shredded the liberal rag for running with something unfit to print, even invoking the gravestone of a former Times editor.

This is a story that should never have gotten anywhere near print,” Hume declared during Tuesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight. Point-by-point, Hume tore into how the smears made it to the public:

I mean, this – Remember now, we’re talking about a second-hand account from a witness that the authors did not speak to, and who is not speaking. And he is said by friends to be saying this happened. Right?

So, it isn't even a firsthand account. So, right there you’ve got a huge strike against you if you’re trying to get the story into print in the old New York Times. Right? And then on top of that, you have the fact that the woman herself is not talking, the alleged victim is not talking and has told -- and she has told friends that she didn't remember this.

I can only imagine what would have happened back in my newspaper days if I went to an editor and said: ‘this is what I have got’. I can just see him picking up the copy and throwing it across the room,” Hume quipped. “And you couldn't get anywhere near -- this is nowhere near publishable. It's not even remotely close.”
