The New York Times was reeling on Monday after its Opinion section fumbled a high-profile story about an allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, drawing widespread criticism and condemnation of the newspaper.

A New York Times reporter who co-wrote a controversial new book on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh admitted Tuesday that she also penned the paper’s widely panned “penis” tweet published to promote the tome.
The newspaper’s culture reporter and “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh” co-author Robin Pogrebin copped to the cringe-worthy tweet two days after the Times published it online, then retracted it, then deleted its retraction, then posted an apology — all while scores of critics blamed its social media content crew and others for the original post.
Each time we think the Left can stoop no lower into the gutter of the politics of personal destruction, leftists prove us wrong and descend farther into yet another of Dante's circles of Hell.
And who is right there leading the charge? The New York Times, perhaps the most despicable news outlet on the planet, and long ago re-formulated into an arm of the DNC intent upon foisting its particular agenda upon the masses.
Liberal, Character, Oops, Press, Smears, Lie, Hoax
The New York Times has finally admitted that the premise of its much-hyped story about an alleged incident with United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was false, as the alleged victim says she has no recollection of the incident in question. The admission undermines what was an already weak story of dubious credibility...
Last year, the New York Times called “dozens” of people attempting to corroborate the story and came up with nothing.
The Liberal Agenda Wins Out Over The Facts...
This time, they've thrown out to us an allegation that even the supposed "victim" does not recall.
Liberals Caught Fabricating A Smear...
The woman at the center of it, who'd been a student at the time of the incident, declined to be interviewed. Moreover, her friends said she did not recall the incident.
In addition to that omission of vital information, The Times' Opinion desk also came under fire over a tweet it had published promoting the story. The tweet said that "having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun."
New York Times: Journalistic Malpractice...
“The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event.”
Omitting this fact from the New York Times story is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory.

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.
A Senate Judiciary Committee report revealed that New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin coached sources on what to say and how to respond to her questions based on information she obtained, The Federalist reported.
Her motive was to shape a false narrative against now-sitting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual misconduct.
