Times apologizes for tweet, revises Kavanaugh article

As highlighted by The Daily Wire on Monday, Leland Ingham Keyser, the close friend of Brett Kavanaugh-accuser Christine Blasey Ford named as a witness to the now-Supreme Court justice's alleged attempted rape decades ago, not only denied being at such a gathering described by the accuser - she also did not believe Blasey Ford was the victim, according to reporting from The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway.

The Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connected nonprofit CEO Max Stier, "saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his trousers down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student".

In the correction, the newspaper said: "The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident".

New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, out with a new book "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation", attempt to re-litigate the Kavanaugh confirmation battle from past year with heightened focus a story that mirrors Deborah Ramirez's account of when the two were classmates at Yale.

"Some seized on the fact that the story - labeled a news analysis - did not mention that, according to the book, the woman involved in the alleged incident has told friends she does not recall it", the Post noted in a piece written by Emily Wax-Thibodeaux, Cat Zakrewski and Robert O'Harrow Jr. The newspaper said Sunday in an editor's note that an earlier version of its story didn't include that information. "I'm heartbroken by all who continue to support him knowing what he is". Many Democratic presidential candidates claimed the story proved Kavanaugh lied to Congress during his Senate confirmation, therefore necessitating his impeachment.

Keyser, by the way, was opposed to Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Their comments followed similar ones from Julian Castro, a former United States housing secretary, on Saturday night.

As for Stier, however, the senator said that he was "one individual whom I would like to specifically refer to you for appropriate follow up".

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that the Times "has abandoned any pretext of journalistic integrity" and the revised Kavanaugh story is the latest example.

Trump said Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue.
