New York Times Torched for Apparently Burying Story on Kavanaugh

Share

Critics on Twitter went after The New York Times after it appears the newspaper buried a story about Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Times received criticism after the newspaper put the story about an armed man getting arrested on the way to Kavanugh’s home in a brief article with a footnote telling readers to refer to A20.

Managing Editor at Media Research Center, Curtis Houck tweeted, “Articles that were longer? A journo goes deep into the Amazon and a deadly Korean ferry accident.”

Former Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia reacted, saying, “The New York Times and most other liberal outlets buried the news of an attempted assasination of a Supreme Court justice in their coverage.”

She added, “But the January 6 sideshow? Front page, today and probably until November…it’s all they’ve got.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) suggested the “silence” from some media outlets is “deafening.”

He continued, “But I can only imagine if the shoe was reversed. I mean, they would be going berserk if you had some Trump support or doing anything even approaching to that.”

Nicholas John Roske was charged with attempted murder after two U.S. deputy marshals saw him step out of a taxicab in front of Kavanaugh’s home, as the Times reported.

An affidavit showed “the Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center received a call from Mr. Roske, who said he was having suicidal thoughts and had a firearm in his suitcase,” as the Times noted.

Officers from the Montgomery County Police Department arrived and found he was still on the phone with the communications center.

Roske was then taken into custody.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre commented on the situation while speaking to reporters Wednesday, as IJR reported.

“The President condemns the actions of this individual in the strongest terms and is grateful to law enforcement for quickly taking him into custody,” she said.

Jean Pierre added, “As [Biden] has consistently made clear, public officials, including judges, must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety or that of their families’. And any violence, threats of violence or attempts to intimidate justices have no place in our society.”
