Unstoppable Force Meets Immovable Object in Christine Blasey Ford’s vs Brett Kavanaugh

Published

on

Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the perfect plot twist for our divided time because either side has a credible way of defending and attacking her.

You can feel self-righteous by opposing or supporting her,
as you can make an equally strong case for either position.

Timing of the accusation.

She waited until the nomination was closed to stall it,” you’ll say if you don’t want to believe her.

“The media outted her,” is a credible reply, “which left her with no choice but to come forward on her own terms.”

I had Blasey Ford’s name yesterday. Someone tipped me off that she had begun scrubbing her social media accounts, and thus I Tweeted out, “Fireworks this week, as social media showing far left wing activism has been thoroughly scrubbed to prepare for a narrative that she’s disinterested and not politically active.”

Deleting social media.

Days before going public with her allegation against Kavanaugh, Blasey Ford deleted all of her social media profiles, including her Facebook page. She had “liked” many far-left wing pages.

Some will say Blasey Ford deleted her social media to hide her far left wing affiliations.

Others will say, equally plausibly, that she doesn’t want randos sending her nasty messages via social media.

The allegations themselves.

The allegations are she-said, he-said. You either believe her story, which is plausible, or you believe his explanation, which is also plausible.

Based on keg party behavior, Blassey Ford’s story can’t be dismissed outright.

Complicating matters is that false memories are a real phenomena.

Blasey Ford may believe her allegations against Kavanaugh, and those allegations may be a hallucination.

No one knows the truth, and neither side can prove his or her case.

We’ll instead scream at each other based on our understanding of the world, and all evidence that comes in will be filtered through these biases we hold about the world.

And if you’ve read Scott Adam’s book Wing Bigly, you understand that either side will watch a different movie.

You couldn’t script a better story.

Trump Channels CNN in Joe Scarborough “Cold Case”

Published

on

“It’s possible, but I don’t know.” With those words former FBI Director James Comey set a new standard for media coverage of public figures. Even when there is no evidence to substantiate your claim, even when you’re relying on a document that had been discredited within the FBI, even when you’re quoting work product that was the result of Russian disinformation, you give no quarter to your enemies.

I am referencing the infamous pee-pee interview James Comey gave to ABC. Comey’s words were amplified by every media outlet. No context was added (such as the FBI’s knowing the Steele dossier was funded by Democrats and contained hoaxes from Russian pranksters).

And now Trump is applying these same principles to Joe Scarborough.

Media figures cry foul. What moral authority do they have?

Scarborough’s own colleague Rachel Maddow accuses people of being Russian assets. When called to answer those allegations in court, she claims that her assertions, believed to be statements of fact by her millions of viewers, are “quintessential statements of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.”

As much as I’m glad to see Joe Scarborough be treated with the same “journalistic ethics” as he treats others, I feel for the Lori Klausutis family, who no doubt do not want these painful memories resurfaced. Scarborough deserves this, but the Klausutis family does not.

But as always the media is treating itself as the real victim here.

The same media figures who recklessly smeared innocent teenagers from Covington High School as racists have much to say about a need for others to measure their words.

The same media figures who obsess over every mean Tweet a conservative posts ignores Scarborough’s on-air recording joking about the tragic death of a staffer.

Feel some empathy for the Klausutis. They are caught in a battle they didn’t start.

Scarborough, however, is getting exactly what he and everyone else on cable news deserves.
