Snopes Fact-Checkers Strangely Silent on NY Times' Kavanaugh - Smear

Posted: Sep 19th, 2019 - 7:02 am

With this weekend's high-profile screw-up by the New York Times—publishing (and then walking back) salacious, unsubstantiated sexual assault accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh that even the alleged victim says she doesn't recall—you'd think the self-described "definitive fact-checkers" at Snopes, those paragons of holier-than-thou virtue who are supposed to be holding America accountable, would have weighed in on the veracity of the story. You would be wrong—although I suspect astute PJM readers never expected them to play this story fairly.

If you search for "New York Times" at Snopes, you have to go all the way back to September 2018 for a story about how the Times had to walk back their claim that then-UN Ambassador Nikki Haley spent $52,000 on curtains for her official residence in New York (she didn't, but why let that get in the way of a good smear). And if you want to get technical, Snopes didn't actually fact check the story—it's listed as a "News" item on their website.
