New York Times Hypocritical On Kavanaugh And Cuomo

They are silent on Cuomo. They weren't on Kavanaugh.

If there is ever any doubt that the New York Times stopped being a newspaper a long time ago and has degenerated into a Bolshevik broadsheet, this should confirm the fact.

FNC: “When Christine Blasey Ford publicly accused then-Supreme Court Associate nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in September 2018, the left-leaning New York Times editorial board rushed to cover the story, demanding answers as Kavanaugh’s career hung in the balance. In the days and weeks since multiple allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the paper’s editorial board has fallen silent on the matter, even after an image posted on social media by one alleged victim and a nationally televised interview with another supported their claims. A succession of women have come forward alleging Cuomo sexually harassed or made inappropriate advances toward them after former aide Lindsey Boylan brought allegations against the Democrat in late February.”

Here’s the Times on Kavanaugh. “As in the case of so many he-said/she-said scenarios, there’s much we don’t know and probably never will with certainty. But there are two things we do know. First, there is no upside for women who come forward with stories of sexual harassment or assault, especially when the accused is a famous or powerful man. It doesn’t matter how credible the story is. Simply by telling it, a woman can expect to be pilloried in the press and suffer far worse on social media, if not in real life.” Unless you accuse a Democrat.

The Times said that Ford “has not given the public any reason to doubt her credibility,” arguing that the same can’t be said of Judge Kavanaugh, “who has given misleading or inaccurate testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee over the years.” Ha!!! That is delusional.

They went so low as to print the item below. They no doubt thought they were being provocative and avant garde. But as in most cases with leftist media, they were merely being childishly vulgar and low rent salacious.

In another piece headlined “Brett Kavanaugh, America Needs Answers Today,” the Times wrote of “a horrific unfairness” felt by American women “who have had their lives ‘derailed’ by sexual abuse, to use the term of one of Judge Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, while the boys and men who abused them — maturing, telling themselves they’ve set aside boyish ways, eliding, avoiding, forgetting — chugged along toward successful careers and public acclaim.”

There’s the proof. Hardly a word on Cuomo but sanctimonious volumes on Kavanaugh. With Kavanaugh there was no evidence aside from the lying statements of left wing activists. All the charges were proved false. In Cuomo’s case the accusers have been Democrats and members of his own staff. This is also happening in the Times’ back yard. Other New York Democrats such as Hillary Clinton and Bill De Blasio have come out against Cuomo. But not the Times. Never the Times.
