New York Times Has Anti-Kavanaugh ‘Reporter’ Write Kavanaugh  Hit Piece

The New York Times published a “report” Monday that read more like a Democratic hit piece about Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh allegedly throwing ice at someone while at a bar in college.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the New York Times ‘reporter’ who co-authored the piece, Emily Bazelon, has expressed her displeasure with Kavanaugh’s nomination for months, a move that is in violation with the paper’s social media guidelines.

The New York Times story centers around accusations that while at college, Kavanaugh was questioned by the New Haven Police Department for allegedly throwing ice at someone while at a bar in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh was not arrested or charged with any crime in connection with the alleged incident, but was questioned by police about the incident.

While the New York Times’ reasoning for publishing a Democratic hit piece is suspect at best, the inclusion of Bazelon as an author on the piece makes it an outrageous affront to journalistic integrity.

In July, after President Trump nominated Kavanaugh, Bazelon tweeted her displeasure with the nomination:

This is a clear violation of the New York Times’ social media guidelines for reporters that the paper announced last year.

According to the New York Times’ website:

“In social media posts, our journalists must not express partisan opinions, promote political views, endorse candidates, make offensive comments or do anything else that undercuts The Times’s journalistic reputation.”

“I can’t decide what’s more insane: That The New York Times deemed allegedly ‘throwing ice’ in college newsworthy, or that they let a self-professed anti-Kavanaugh crusader ‘report’ this,” a spokesperson for Republican National Committee (RNC) said about the Times story on Tuesday.
