We all know that the majority of our media is biased, but sometimes it’s hard to believe the lengths they will go to amplify or ignore a story.
The threat to the life of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was all too real, but some outlets ignored it, downplayed it, or memory-holed it as quickly as possible.
Josh Blackman of the Volokh Conspiracy at Reason highlights the New York Times coverage:
If you log onto NYTimes.com now, and check above the fold, you will see a lovely story about the Jurassic Park cast and Kelly Clarkson’s performance. If you scroll down, down, down, down, down, you will find a story about the attempted assassination of a Justice. By my count, the Kavanaugh assassination attempt is perhaps the sixteenth most important news item of the day! Oh, and according to the Washington Post, Kavanaugh and his family were home last night.
