Joe Scarborough questioned why the media did not probe how Christine Blasey Ford’s confidential letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein alleging sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh ended up being leaked.
Scarborough made his comments Tuesday on his MSNBC show, “Morning Joe.”
"What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter, was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and ask Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing?" Scarborough asked. "Not one."
"I challenge New York Times reporters this morning — not reporters, editors — I challenge Washington Post editors, I challenge Wall Street Journal editors, I challenge editors across America, write that story.
"What happened with Dr. Ford's agreement with a congresswoman, with Dianne Feinstein? Why did they leak that story? And more importantly, look at yourself and ask yourself the question, why didn't we report on this in real time when you sure as hell would have reported on it if (Sen. Chuck) Grassley and his office had done the same thing?"
The Washington Free Beacon noted Feinstein has denied that she or anyone in her office released the letter’s confidential contents. The letter went public, without Blasey Ford’s name, in mid-September. She later came forward and revealed her identity.
