After a random party we’re not even sure happened, or that he went to if it did, we saw the absolute destruction of Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation. The esteemed Mollie Hemingway literally wrote the book on it, and it is a must-read for anyone looking to understand how the media coordinated the assassination attempt on the future Supreme Court Justice’s reputation. With that in mind, the New York Times’ coverage of allegations against the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, is even more galling.
If you are really observant, you can detect a subtle difference in the way that the New York Times attempted to destroy and defame Brett Kavanaugh with no evidence and how they move to protect Joe Biden from a former employee's accusation. https://t.co/XR7Jz7HW9h

There is no pattern of sexual misconduct… besides the already established pattern, of course. But that couldn’t stay up, and so, the Times edited it out of the story.

It was never about protecting women, not for the activist press, nor for the activists. One of the center-stage players in the Kavanaugh drama, actress Alyssa Milano. And like the Times, now that “Believe All Women” has become inconvenient, she’s singing a far different tune.
I believe, along with many others in this space, that accusations need to be investigated with due process for the accused. This is the only way for the movement to work & create the change we are fighting for.
Anything less puts the entire movement and women’s equality at risk.
