Hemingway accuses NYT of hiding facts, using ‘gossip’ to smear Kavanaugh


BREAK YOUR ARM. GOOD LESSON FOR EVERYBODY. STEVE: BRING YOUR DAUGHTER TO DANCE DAY: LET’S BRING IN MOLLIE HEMMINGWAY SENIOR EDITOR OF THE FEDERALIST AND GIGGLING DURING THAT STORY OF SEAN SPICER.>>I VOTED FOR SEAN 10 TIMES LAST NIGHT. BRIAN: I THOUGHT SO. MOLLIE, HOW DID YOU HAVE THE FREE TIME WHAT DID YOU THIS WEEKEND LEGITIMATELY ALL REALISTICALLY CHANGED THE DIRECTION OF A STORY. BEFORE YOU GOT INVOLVED ALL THESE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES WERE CALLING FOR IMPEACHMENT OF JUSTICE KAVANAUGH.>>IT SHOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF ACTUALLY KNOWING WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. I WAS ABLE TO READ THAT BOOK. I KNEW THEY HAD LEFT OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION AND THEY SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED IT IN THEIR STORY. THERE IS NO DEFENSE FOR NOT INCLUDING THE FACT THAT THEIR SUPPOSED ALLEGATION AGAINST KAVANAUGH WAS BASED ON A FALSE PREMISE. THE WOMAN INVOLVED SAID SHE HAD NO RECOLLECTION OF IT. AINSLEY: I THOUGHT WHAT WAS MOST IMPORTANT THIS WEEKEND YOU WANT TO HEAR FROM THOSE WRITERS AND WHY THEY LEFT CERTAIN INFORMATION OUT. THEY HAD AN EXPLANATION. TWO WOMEN FROM THE “NEW YORK TIMES” WROTE THIS ARTICLE BASED ON THAT BOOK. ROBIN AND THEN KATE KELLY. HERE IS ROBIN SPEAKING ABOUT WHAT WAS TAKEN OUT OF HER ORIGINAL ARTICLE, SHE SAYS. LISTEN.>>WE HAD HER NAME. AND, YOU KNOW, THE “TIMES” DOESN’T USUALLY INCLUDE THE NAME OF THE VICTIM.>>RIGHT.>>SO I THINK IN THIS CASE THE EDITORS FELT LIKE MAYBE IT WAS BETTER TO REMOVE IT. IN REMOVING HER NAME THEY REMOVED THE OTHER REFERENCE TOUT FACT THAT SHE DIDN’T REMEMBER. I THINK IT WAS AN EDITING DONE IN THE HASTE IN THE EDITING PROCESS.>>WERE YOU INVOLVED IN THE DECISION TO AMEND THIS AND DO THE CORRECTION, THE ADDITION ONLINE TO THE PIECE.>>WE FELT THERE WAS SO MUCH HEAT. EVERYONE HAS BEEN SEETHING ON VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THIS WE DIDN’T WANT THIS TO BE AN ISSUE ANYMORE. WE NEVER INTENDED TO MISLEAD IN ANY WAY. AINSLEY: THEY NEVER INTENDED TO MISLEAD AND EDITORS WERE ACTING IN HASTE. THEY HAPPENED TO FORGET TO PUT IN HER FRIENDS — THEY ACTUALLY TOOK IT OUT HER FRIENDS SAID THEY HAD NO RECOLLECTION OF THE EVENTS. SHE DECLINED TO BE INTERVIEWED AND THE FEMALE’S NAME.>>YES. I DO AGREE THAT THE EDITORS ARE ALSO REPORTERS. NOT JUST THE REPORTERS. REALLY THE ENTIRE INSTITUTION IS TO BLAME. THEY SHOULDN’T JUST PASS IT OFF ON THE REPORTERS. HAVING SAID THAT IN NPR INTERVIEW THAT AIRED YESTERDAY THESE REPORTERS DID THE EXACT SAME THING. THEY MADE IT SOUND LIKE THEY HAD A CREDIBLE STORY ABOUT A WOMAN AND THEY HID THE FACT THAT THE WOMAN DNGED IT EVER HAPPENED. BRIAN: REALLY? I DID NOT KNOW THAT.>>YOU CANNOT BLAME THAT ON EDITORS. HOUR LONG INTERVIEW. PLENTY OF TIME TO DISCUSS IT. BRIAN: DUMPING ON THE OPINION EDITOR OF THE OPINION SECTION OF THE “TIMES” I PUT IT IN THERE AND THEY CUT IT OUT ON HASTE. SELLING THAT ANGLE. REPORT TODAY THE “NEW YORK TIMES” NEWS SECTION WALKED AWAY FROM THE STORY. THEY SAID THERE WASN’T ENOUGH IN IT. THAT’S HOW IT ENDED UP IN THE OPINION SECTION. “THE WASHINGTON POST” SAID WE HAD A YEAR AGO. NOT ENOUGH THERE TO PRINT IT. WHAT DOES THAT SAY TO YOU?>>WELL, I MEAN, I THINK THAT’S OBVIOUS THAT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH THERE TO GO INTO A NEWS SECTION. AND IT REALLY SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT THEIR STANDARDS WERE IN REPORTING THIS. NOW, I RECENTLY WROTE A BOOK ON THE KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION JUSTIFIABLE ON TRIAL. WE INTERVIEWED MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE. WE GOT ALL OF OUR FACTS RIGHT. WE’LL DIDN’T TRAFFIC IN GOSSIP. AND WE TOLD THE ACCURATE STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED. SO I KNOW IT CAN BE DONE. AND THERE’S NO EXCUSE FOR HOW THEY DID THIS. STEVE: YOU KNOW, MOLLIE THOUGH, THIS GIVES AMMUNITION TO THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESIDENT’S SUPPORTERS TO SAY HEY, LOOK, THE “NEW YORK TIMES,” THEY ARE OUT TO GET ME AND MY GUYS.>>I MEAN, YES. IT DOES GIVE AMMUNITION BECAUSE IT’S ABSOLUTELY TRUE THAT THEY ARE RUNNING SOME KIND OF CAMPAIGN AGAINST THIS MAN AND THAT THEY ARE UNWILLING TO LET IT GO. EVEN THOUGH THEY DID CORRECT THEIR STORY TO ADMIT THAT THE ENTIRE PREMISE WAS FALSE, THEY KEPT GOING YESTERDAY. THEY ARE STILL RUNNING STORIES ABOUT IMPEACHMENT, WHICH IS REALLY AN ABSURD IDEA. AT SOME POINT DECENT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO STAND UP AGAINST. THIS IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT NO ONE HAS BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT’S BEEN DONE TO THIS MAN. NO ONE ON THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WAS HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR VIOLATION OF NORMS. ATTORNEYS WHO LIED TO THEIR CLIENTS WERE NOT HELD ACCOUNTABLE. CRIMINAL REFERRALS SENT TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FOR FALSE STATEMENT. NO ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN ON THEM. AND THE MEDIA KEEPS BEING ALLOWED TO CONTINUE IN THIS SMEAR CAMPAIGN. I THINK DECENT PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF THEIR POLITICS ARE JUST LOOKING AT THIS AND SAYING IS THERE NO END TO THIS? WHEN WILL THEY STOP? STEVE: MOLLIE, TO ONE OF YOUR LAST POINTS, THE CRIMINAL REFERRALS THAT WERE MADE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, PEOPLE WHO, YOU KNOW, SUPPOSEDLY WERE NOT FACTUAL IN THEIR TESTIMONY, YOU KNOW, IS THERE NO CONSEQUENCE FOR LYING IN FRONTS OF CONGRESS?>>APPARENTLY NOT. BECAUSE THOSE REFERRALS WERE MADE AND THERE IS NO INDICATION OF ANY ACTION. I ACTUALLY PUT IN. STEVE: WHY IS THAT?>>I ACTUALLY REQUESTED TO FIND OUT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IF ANY ACTION HAD BEEN TAKEN AND HAVE NOT HEARD BACK OF ANY ACTION TAKEN. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS. BUT NOT JUST THE PEOPLE WHO MADE FALSE STATEMENTS BUT PEOPLE WHO TRAFFICKED IN THEM. THERE WERE SENATORS WHO VIOLATED COMMITTEE NORMS AND PROCEDURES. THERE IS A NEW CHAIRMAN OF THAT COMMITTEE, LINDSEY GRAHAM, HE DID A REALLY INTERESTING THING DURING THE HEARING. HE SAID SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE FOUND REALLY INTERESTING. ABOUT NO ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS YOU COULD BE DOING TO INVESTIGATE JUST HOW THAT LETTER LEAKED OR WHY PEOPLE VIOLATED NORMS AND PROCEDURES. THOSE THINGS ARE IMPORTANT TO DO. BRIAN: DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’RE FOCUSING ON NOW IN THE FBI DIDN’T DO A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION EXTRA TWO WEEKS BEFORE THEY VOTED. REMEMBER WHEN FLAKE GOT TOGETHER WITH COONS AND THEY DECIDED TO NOT VOTE AND PUT IT OFF FOR A WEEK? NOW THAT’S THE FOCUS.>>THEY ARE ACTUALLY SAYING THAT SOMEONE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED BECAUSE THE FBI DIDN’T INVESTIGATE A SITUATION WHERE A WOMAN SAYS SHE WAS NOT THE VICTIM OF ANY CRIME THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. THERE SHOULD BE TOUGH QUESTIONS TO PEOPLE WHO EVEN MAKE THAT SOUND LIKE THAT’S A LEGITIMATE THING TO DO. I REALIZE IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE TO LOSE THE 2016 ELECTIONS. BUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE INTERVENES YEARS IS A TEMPER TANTRUM THAT REFUSES TO ACCEPT THAT REALITY WHETHER IT’S THE RUSSIA HOAX OR THE KAVANAUGH HOAX OR WHATEVER THE NEXT HOAX IS GOING TO BE. SO PEOPLE NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE WHEN THEY PERPETRATE THESE KIND OF THINGS. BRIAN: OR ELSE IT WILL NEVER STOP. FBI DIRECTOR WRAY WILL BE ON CAPITOL HILL IN OCTOBER. YOU KNOW ALL THE QUESTIONS WILL BE ABOUT THIS. EVEN THOUGH WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS LITTLE PROBLEM WE ARE HAVING WITH IRAN AND SO MUCH INTERNATIONAL — SO MANY INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGES THAT WE HAVE.>>WELL, WRAY SHOULD BE ASKED SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT THE FBI WAS DOING OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FEW YEARS. BUT I WOULD SAY FOCUS ON, AGAIN, THE RUSSIA HOAX AND THAT AGENCY’S ROLE IN PERPETUATING IT. AINSLEY: ALL THESE INVESTIGATIONS. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MOLLIE,

  1. Every kind of "mistake" like this is NEVER a mistake that casts a Conservative or a Republican in a favorable light.
    100 percent of the mistakes hurt only one side.

  2. Using the word hoax softens the reality of the situation. Malicious persecution works. Calling it by it’s name also works, an attempted coup that is still going on.

  3. Mollie is a TRUTH TELLER. So refreshing in a time where most of the media traffics in lies to advance a political agenda.

  4. Kavanaugh needs to sue NYT for slander and defamation to character, for $10,000,000.
    MSNBC reporter just sued for the same thing and for that amount. Great deterrent.
    MSM standards are so low, they make the National Enquirer look like the bible. 🤪

  5. THEY WILL NEVER STOP BECAUSE A LIAR will always be a LIAR THAT IS THEIR LIFE MISSION WHAT A POOR MISSABLE LIFE THEY SEEK. THE JUDGE MENT WILL COME. or A VERY LARGE LAW SUIT AND THEN THEY WILL SHUT UP.

  6. Even in the interview here the reporter referred to the woman as "the victim" even though the entire point is she says it didn't happen.

  7. “We never intended to mislead”, but they DID intend to mislead the whole story. I wish those two ugly women authors will be sued by huge money of defamation.

  8. Well….she was likely passed out and credible folks said it happened. Jeezus…..this is cult mentality at it's best (worst). Scary….

  9. New York Times is officially done, it’s only a mouth piece for the ‘radical irrational radical left Democratic Socialist party’ just a matter of time before they fall!

  10. this whole liberal news media is the fault of the people who allow it to thrive even though they know it is evil… that means you lazy Americans, get off of the couch and try doing something…

  11. Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly behave as if there is some personal trauma in their past which they haven't dealt with. Stop projecting and hurting others and get some help.

  12. Hey Steve ! thankyou for not interrupting and talking over your guest. I have complained numerous times about you doing that, and this interview leads me to believe you all actually read these comments ! SO I wanna say THANK YOU ! great segment !!

  13. What seems so obvious is so lost on the Democrats.
    “Oddities only strike ordinary people. Oddities do not strike odd people.” GK Chesterton

  14. Please start reading the NYT carefully. They actually do apologize when they realize they have been wrong. You cannot say that about FOX. Or have you ever heard Trump apologizing?

  15. I heard the hour of NPR with these REPUGNANT liars from nyt. They were going on and on like stuckup, catty teenagers gossiping (as if theyd been there) about the vomit smell of kavanaugh's dorm bathroom… all based on 4th hand rumor/innuendo. On NPR as if they are journalists reporting news, when the MOST IMPORTANT DETAIL (which they KNEW before the segment) that the 'victim' has NO RECOLLECTION of kavanaugh exposing himself to her…which makes the ENTIRE STORY COMPLETE HOGWASH.
    ..and the supposedly "educated liberals" stand for this GARBAGE ? I thought liberals cared about truth and journalistic integrity. The Democrats say its kavanaugh that needs to prove his innocence.. how can he prove that he didn't do something he didn't do…and how can he satisfy these people that don't require any proof to the accusations ? It's so blatantly preposterous, BUT THEY DON'T CARE.

  16. TWO BLONDE WOMEN FIND THREE GRENADES…THEY DECIDE TO TAKE THEM TO THE POLICE STATION…ONE SAID TO THE OTHER, WHAT IF ONE OF THEM EXPLODES BEFORE WE GET THERE…HER FRIEND REPLIED, WE WILL LIE AND TELL THEM WE ONLY FOUND TWO…

  17. All of the crap they're talking about isn't DEMOCRATS alone. It's the DEEP STATE that the democrats represent that's behind it. It's not about people being angry about losing an election, it's the deep state trying to take down the administration of our duly elected president, Donald Trump, because if they don't, Trump will take THEM down. Fox should put that out.

  18. The tactic of the Left is to push for movement toward their ideas. Any movement in their direction is a win for them. When RBG is no longer on the bench, they want to force POTUS to nominate a moderate, by flaming these lies about BK. It's a tactic and everyone should ignore them, mock them and walk away. They are so transparent and SELFISH.

  19. The Democrats may NEVER learn! Lie after lie expose's them and their Fake News Media mover and over again! Yet they continue this False Narrative like a child throwing a tantrum. THe Democrats are finished as a Political party. God Bless Donald John Trump and all that serve him and God Bless America!

  20. all this magic show by the dems these days what are they really trying to distract the country from that they would willingly look like a bunch of fools to protect something they don't want know?

  21. The bottomline is the democrat politicians are actually performing Act of Sedition wanting to impeach an innocent President and now Justice Kavanaugh WITHOUT any FACTUAL EVIDENCES. President Trump must act and declare Act of Sedition against the liberal losers and that is the only way to stop them NO MORE MERCY 'cause those liberals are possessed by the demons fully paid by lucifer in flesh George Soros who hates America and President Trump so he is willing to pay millions and millions of dollars to his footsoldier demonrats and anti-Trump organization to do as he please so he can launch his New World Order. GOD IS IN CONTROL — Mr. Soros. "TO DEMOCRATS:  "Luke 12:2 King James Version (KJV) 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known" Don't sell your soul to the devil for temp power!.

  22. New York Times have become cheerleaders for the progressive left instead of unbiased news which is what they used to be. Trump and Kavanaugh should sue for defamation

  23. Isaiah 32:5 King James Version (KJV)

    5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

    Isaiah 32:6

    “For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.” Yah God Bless All! Thank you very much for sharing.

  24. Mr. Kavanaugh, if you don't sue. You will be contributing to the mental MSM lieing, slandering and attacking good people.. Sue them And Ballsy Ford for slander and defamation.. Good conservative Americans are watching to see if the press has a different standard of justice.

  25. The problem is the Right always takes the “high road” and won’t sue the F out of these rags when they pull this crap. And the Left banks on that.

  26. MOLLY MOLLY MOLY…THAT'S MY MOLLY! Tantrums. yep. Throwing rocks at window dear d.u.m.b.s…I mean d.e.m. s…., is still illegal….as are your temper tantrums. Politics are for decent people of ethics and morals….understand? How about …jail? understand that? zombies.

  27. This constant disgusting display from the left and the fake news media is not just something that it does to the American people but what it does to the individual in terms of slandering and ruining them because of idiots who want to listen to these lies! Fake news media = Evil!

  28. Uhhh… just pointing out that if Trump supporters have additional facts they can release it. Why should the NYT do all the work?

    Logic. Lost on Trump supporters.

  29. I agree with Molly Hemingway that these bad actors should be held accountable. Absolutely. What they have done and are still doing is terrible and baseless.

  30. Why are we surprised at the MSM? They are all in the Dems pockets. And wasn't it the dems who assasinated their own preseident? Remember JFK? We all know it wasn't Oswald alone, it was Johnson and his dem cronies. They wanted a war and they got it! The Vietnam war was not JFK's it was Johnson's.

  31. It is indisputable that the so-called FBI "investigation" was a SHAM and took only a fraction of the time that a REAL investigation would have taken…so this is pretty irrelevant in the big picture!

  32. What a crock of BULL SH**!!!!!!!! THEY MUST THINK WE ARE STUPID. SORRY YOU DUMB BITC*ES WE AREN'T STUPID AND SEE IT FOR THE SLANDER IT IS. DIDN'T WORK MORON TIMES REPORTERS!!!!!

  33. What do all these trump people have to hide that they do not want to answer questions? Must be something terrible….and the problem is that we hence have to keep on asking, until we find out! This Lewandowski and the gang he protects clearly STINKS

  34. NYT…… the new “Enquirer”. “Enquiring Minds Want To Know” But WAIT…… new headline ….”Kavanaugh Finds ELVIS and Exposes Himself WHILE accompanied by an ALIEN carrying Kavanaugh’s Love Child. Harris, Beto, Warren, Sanders, and all Socialist candidates debate if Love Child will be an Anchor Child !!”

  35. I can assure you the god of the Bible Elohim The One and Only God he is still on the throne he will make sure these evil yes evil Democrats and left us get held accountable he will not allow them to get away with this he will the Bible makes it clear he will pour out his wrath upon people who are gossipers false accusers and liars and then those who support it and don't say anything about it every one of those people will pay for it. We'll make sure these people reap what they sow I can assure you that I know the God I serve and he will pour out his wrath upon these evil people they will end up in the Lake of Fire to for their his raffle be poured out upon them before that I'm glad to they deserve it didn't they deserve to be taught a lesson lesson the only God can teach them

  36. Only a News Media like The New York Times can be so stupid. People with any common sense knows that this is the Democrats Propaganda campaign against President Trump by going after Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. The democrats idea is to discredit and humiliate the President in order to prevent him from being reelected.

  37. Ka anaugh needs to sue them hard to file bankrjptcy and he shpuld buy them out and do a complete restaff with REAL journos with INTEGRITY.

  38. All Kavanaugh needs to do to prove his innocence is to undergo plethysmograph testing. This will clear everything up. Squeaky clean.

  39. Do these bimbos really think America is too stupid to see thru the obvious blatant lies, double standards, and hypocrisy of their article and their excuse.
