After writing a Facebook post defending Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, news anchor Kris Long was suspended before resigning from his position at CBS affiliate KESQ-TV in Palm Springs.
The veteran journalist took to Facebook to write a 400-word post defending Kavanaugh on Sept. 17, well before he was confirmed to the Supreme Court. The post has since been deleted.

My point is, they’ve directed an attack on Trump from Day One whether it’s faux Russia scandal or faux Kavanaugh scandal.

This guy worked here in Pittsburgh years ago.
