The stories have become outlandish, to the point of mockery.
Kinda like a well known dossier........................
I guess the bottom line is Ronan is still a pop-culture celeb and not a journalist. He hasn’t gotten a grip on this whole verifying sources thing.
Oh, I remeber, the mysterious never located Lucy Ramirez from the Rather fake memo.
Are they going to now say this womans claims are "Fake but Accurate"?
I know that Puritanism was not dominant in the 1980s but guys exposing themselves at mixed-company parties like she describes seems to be pretty risky behavior, especially for a student with high aspirations and in an on-campus setting. Guys let the little head do the thinking all the time, but I just wonder if this allegation passes the “smell test” for those who were in college in the mid-80s?
Farrow is now getting sloppy and producing no relevant facts to back up stories.
“Some brilliant FReeper posited on another thread that this is less about Kavanaugh than an operation by Friends of Harvey Weinstein to take Ronan Farrow down once and for
maybe they think they can take down Farrow and Kavanaugh
He attempting to be accepted back into the leftist fold after outing Weinstein.
It makes me mad and sad at the same time.....................
I figured that the media has exculpatory evidence but would not say so. Maybe I was wrong.
OR they know something is about to go down and they don’t want to be caught in the crossfire.................
Hell, anything is ‘possible’......................
Yes, its a shame. He was fooled by his own political preferences. Geniuses definitely have blind sports re emotion. He is getting chewed out on Twitter, deservedly so, and if Tiger Woods can come back, Ronan stands an excellence chance.
I think if he really wants to be credible, he apologizes for this wholly uncorroborated non-news. I feel I am one of the most unbiased FReepers on this subject because in my emotions I dont trust or like Kavanaugh from before I knew he even had a penis. So my political slant does not influence my thoughts on this confirmation process. I look at it as a question of fairness and legality and common sense (we dont go back to childhood to search for misdeeds; we expect evidence; we expect both sides of nominees to be given the same level of scrutiny, etc.).
A bridge too far even for these propaganda rags?
Doesn’t seem possible. Makes me wonder if overnight polling on these ludicrous claims is harming the Left by getting our side - and the middle - incensed over the unfairness of it all. Maybe they’re looking for a way down off the ladder.
I agree that for the upper NYC elite, putting little Ronan in his place is preferred to adding to the Kavanaugh circus.
Dilbert San Diego wrote: “Really, even liberal news outlets say this is BS??? Maybe the liberals have overreached on this one, overplayed their hand?”
Maybe the liberals have realized that this is like playing with nuclear weapons. Maybe they realize that uncollaborated allegations like this could also be used against their nominees.
Democrats and their once upon a time stories never end.
This is also all about discouraging future applicants. Who would want to but their family through that hell?
