It has come to light that NBC held key information that would have helped Kavanaugh during the toughest moments of his nomination but chose to withhold it. I wonder why. Per Breitbart:
On September 30, a week prior to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, during the most intense days of this scandal, when Kavanaugh’s confirmation was still very much in doubt, here is what NBC did not want the public to know…
If you recall, although he withheld the name, Avenatti tweeted out a sworn statement from a woman who backed up Swetnick’s outrageous rape allegations. In her statement, this second woman swore that she, too, had witnessed Kavanaugh spike punch bowls and take sexual advantage of girls.
Well, unbeknownst to us, NBC interviewed this anonymous witness on September 30, and she recanted!
But only now is NBC News bothering to report this bombshell:
Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick’s claims.
When asked in the phone interview if she ever witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards girls, the woman replied, “no.”
Wait, it gets worse…
On October 3, NBC News again spoke to this woman, and this time, she all but accused Avenatti of fabricating her statement:
[R]eached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration. After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”
When pressed about abusive behavior towards girls, she wrote in a text: “I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female.”
And now, we come to the grand conclusion…
When asked about the total contradiction between his client’s sworn statement and what she told NBC, after it no longer matters, NBC now informs us, “At one point, in an apparent effort to thwart the reporting process, [Avenatti] added in the phone call, “How about this, on background, it’s not the same woman. What are you going to do with that?”
So Avenatti’s witness, the woman he brought forward to bolster Swetnick’s serial rape claim, totally recanted to NBC News, and NBC News hid this news until now.
Moreover, NBC News believed Kavanaugh’s chief tormentor — Avenatti — was attempting to “thwart the reporting process,” and NBC also chose to hide this information until long after it mattered.
So what we have here is an NBC News eager to publish completely unfounded allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh while at the same time hiding vitally important information that would have helped to clear Kavanaugh at the most crucial time of this scandal.
In other words, in a partisan effort to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation, to do its part to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, NBC News published uncorroborated smears against him and then engaged in a deliberate cover up of a legitimate story that backed up Kavanaugh’s claim of his innocence and his claim that there was a coordinated campaign at work to personally destroy him.
And this is example #2349807523478902354789023548790235487902345 why you should not trust the mainstream media. They do not present the news in anything close to an unbiased fashion. Perhaps they never have. 35 years ago 90% of the media was controlled by 50 companies. Today, 90% of the media is controlled by just 6. Almost 300 million Americans rely on just these six companies to get their news. You are simply being naive if you don’t think that they have an agenda. They want you to think in a certain way. They want to control what you buy, how you buy it, what you think, who you should vote for, and what you should feel about every event that happens across the globe. And their reasons are not for your betterment. NBC wanted you to think Kavanaugh was a serial rapist. They had evidence to refute the one claim made against him for this and chose not to run with it. Ask yourself this: why should NBC care whether Kavanaugh is nominated or not? What reason would they have to not report this key information if they were an unbiased news network that didn’t care whether he was nominated or not but just wanted to report the news. They put the effort in to do “investigative journalism” so why not actually report the findings?
Spread this to your friends who still rely on the MSM to get their news. Gently remind them of things like this, or their election predictions, when you receive news of how the midterm polling is going or what shooter or bomber did today and what motivations they had. Question why they may report on some things and not on others. Here’s an infographic that’s a little old (sub Comcast in for GE and one or two other minor updates) but you’ll get an idea. This is all just a big business. They will report on what needs reporting to further their interests. Not to keep you “in the know” on what’s happening here or around the world.
