Kavanaugh's confirmation was built on lies. The entire GOP traffics in lies. Why the press silence?

We're witnessing a political revolution in this country, and the press is missing this monumental shift. It’s not that journalists can’t spot the game-changing story; it’s that they’re too afraid to document it. They’re too bullied to address it forcefully.

1. The only thing I can think of is that the corporate media enabled

Pussy Grabber to such a degree that even many Dems were angry with Hillary. Like her or hate her, she would CERTAINLY be better than this screaming, gelatinous blob with orange hair.

To illustrate what I mean about many Dems being quite disenchanted with HRC, I met one yesterday who told me he did not vote in 2016, as he considered them both "equally unacceptable." That's just fucking stupid.

2. Meanwhile, Pelosi does not want to investigate. Fucking frustrating as hell.

Look at the headline in WaPo:


In whiplash moment, Democrats are now backing away from Kavanaugh allegations

In a head-spinning few days, Republicans have moved into a full offensive posture over the latest allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, leaving congressional Democrats in a defensive crouch as they try to change the subject.

Tuesday’s dueling news conferences, led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), perfectly captured the new dynamic.

After their respective policy lunches, McConnell devoted his entire opening remarks, more than three minutes, to the Kavanaugh issue, highlighting a clarification the New York Times added to an article about how an alleged victim did not recall an alleged incident of sexual misconduct during the justice’s college days.
...
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), asked whether the House needed to look into the new allegation against Kavanaugh, said no.

3. Press is not missing this. Press is trying to cover it up.

"Liberal" media, my ass!
