Even Joe Scarborough says media carried out biased hit job on Kavanaugh

Joe Scarborough blamed the media for jumping to conclusions about Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s innocence on “Morning Joe” Wednesday and admitted its coverage has been a biased and one-sided affair.

“The media coverage of this has been so one-sided, it has been so biased. There has been the presumption from the very beginning that every single allegation made against the judge was true,” Scarborough said. “And I say this again as somebody who said before the allegations, I didn’t think he should be on the Supreme Court. That this is what happened during the run-up to the Trump election.”

“Nobody would even consider the possibility that Donald Trump might win. And so they were shocked by it,” he continued.

“Nobody has dared say, even the Republicans, that part of Dr. Ford’s story just might not add up. So you have the complete absence in the mainstream media. You have conservatives saying to each other, ‘But, wait a second. There’s no this, there’s no that.’”

Scarborough said the media is giving President Donald Trump an out by not covering the situation fairly and is allowing him to blow up its narrative, to replace it with his own.

“The media has also given Donald Trump a massive opening because they’ve been so one-sided on this story that it allows him to light dynamite and blow the whole thing up,” he added.

“The story should speak for itself. Even in the world of opinion television we should just cover it,” co-host Mika Brzezinski replied.

Scarborough stopped the show from going to commercial break to respond to Brzezinski’s comment.

“Well, Mika, it has not just been covered,” he said. “And you know what — it’s not been covered and it’s been one-sided,” Scarborough said.

“I have turned on all networks at all times and Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of being a serial rapist — a serial rapist by columnists in national newspapers, calling him a serial rapist.”
