(National Sentinel) Yellow Journalism: Sen. Lindsey Graham, whose passionate defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing went viral, told Fox News‘ Sean Hannity on Monday that another network, NBC, was a “co-conspirator” in the effort to destroy POTUS Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee.
On Monday, NBC interviewed another Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick, who is represented by porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti. She initially claimed, through counsel, that she knew Kavanaugh and friends spiked punch in college with drugs so other boys could form a “rape train” and sexually assault them.
Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations, as you can imagine, and as it turns out, Swetnick — who’s own past is suspect — backtracked on MSNBC.
“[T]onight [Swetnick] said, ‘Well I didn’t say that he put the drugs in the punch, but he was near the punch. Why does NBC run this?” Hannity asked Graham.
“Well NBC, here’s the biggest offense to me, they’ve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view.
“There was an anonymous letter received by Cory Gardner, the Senator from Colorado with no return address, no information, just a letter, accusing Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting somebody in a restaurant in 1998 in Colorado,” Graham said.
“Cory hands it to the committee and somebody on the Democratic side leaked that letter, it got on the NBC Nightly News. The fourth allegation,” he continued.
The anonymous letter was sent to Gardner last week; NBC News reported on it.
“Do you think NBC would have done that if it was a Democratic male nominee?” Graham asked. “All I can say is that the journalists’ integrity has been destroyed over this case.”
Sure it has — a long time ago. The problem is far too many American Leftists who want to believe the baseless allegations against Judge Kavanaugh will believe them. And their baseless belief will be substantiated by a modern-day version of yellow journalism.
