To paraphrase the old paraphrase, when you're on the Left and you've lost the Washington Post, you've lost. Of course some of this is just old competition within the ranks. The Post is taking a shot at a competitor.
But it's a shot that makes Kavanaugh, and hence Trump, look good. And that means what the NYT did is beyond flagrant. As I realized here, by the end, only the most fanatical and blind thralls of the Left haven't recanted and admitted the story was false. For some who are sane and seeking good will, hopefully, this is a wake-up call for what type of country, and world, the Left wants.
