Mollie Hemingway: NY Times Hides Facts to Smear Kavanaugh

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway accused The New York Times on Tuesday of hiding facts and relying on gossip to mislead the American public in its story charging Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with further sexual misconduct.

Speaking on Fox & Friends, Hemingway said she "recently wrote a book on the Kavanaugh confirmation . . . we interviewed more than 100 people. We got all of our facts right. We didn't traffic in gossip. And we told the accurate story of what happened. So I know it can be done. And there's no excuse for how they did this."

The original New York Times story accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to a young woman at a party, while he was a student at Yale.

The newspaper later added a correction, saying the woman involved said she had no recollection of the incident.

"I knew that they had left out the most important piece of information and they should've included it in their story," Hemingway said. "There's no defense for not including the fact that their supposed allegation against Kavanaugh was based on a false premise."

Robin Pogrebin, and Kate Kelly, the authors of The New York Times article, said key details from the story were removed by editors.

Hemingway said, "I do agree that the editors are also responsible. It shouldn't just be the reporters. But, really, the entire institution is to blame."

She added, in an NPR interview that was after the article came out, the reporters “made it sound like they had a credible story about a woman and they hid the fact that the woman denied it ever happened. You cannot blame that on editors. It's an hour-long interview - plenty of time to discuss it."
