There’s no doubt that the New York Times, the left’s “paper of record,” is little more than a tabloid now. Over the weekend, the New York Times published a new hit piece smearing Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
It’s been only 11 months since Kavanaugh, his wife and daughters were put through hell during his Senate confirmation process. The tactic was diabolical. Christine Blasey Ford had zero evidence to support her charges against Kavanaugh, yet the left insisted that she be permitted to slander the judge on national television.
And as the left used her to delay the confirmation process, one new accuser after another was brought forward, with each accusation presented as evidence that Kavanaugh was a serial rapist. But by the time the confirmation battle was over, multiple accusers had recanted their accusations.
Kavanaugh made it onto the Supreme Court by a vote of 50-to-48. The unspoken accusation against him got down to one issue — that he may be the fifth vote to restrict abortion. You can read a full account of this battle in Justice On Trial by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino.

Between then and now, multiple left-wing leaders promised us that the Kavanaugh battle wasn’t over. Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has made no secret of his desire to impeach Justice Kavanaugh (here and here).
Now the New York Times is publishing more garbage, another accusation from Kavanaugh’s college years. But the Times leaves out one important detail — the alleged victim says she has no recollection of the event and doesn’t want to talk about it.
The accusation comes not from the alleged victim, but from an individual with ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton. And on that basis, the Times is again willing to deprive Kavanaugh of the presumption of innocence. And it is willing to subject his wife and daughters to this pain and agony all over again.
Whatever you had to deal with this weekend, just know that Justice Kavanaugh had to look his young daughters in the eyes and reassure them that these smears are untrue. Can you imagine what that is like?
President Trump jumped in immediately. He denounced the Times hit piece, warning that the media was trying to browbeat Kavanaugh into moving left. I suspect the attacks would stop immediately if Kavanaugh embraced abortion.
