Accuracy in Media


CNN reporter Allie Malloy wrote an article saying that President Trump engaged in a personal attack on the woman who alleged his Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted her, even when the president was calling for her to release evidence and bring data and transparency to substantiate her bombshell allegations.

“Trump unleashes on Kavanaugh accuser,” CNN wrote, framing the president’s request for more information as an attack on a traumatized victim.

“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” Trump tweeted. “I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place.”

CNN brought up years-old allegations against Trump that have not been proven in the court of law and are irrelevant to the Kavanaugh situation. The framing is an unfair distraction to the allegation, which was held in secret by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for weeks.

“During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women,” Malloy wrote. “They came forward in the wake of a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape that was released in October 2016 in which he is caught bragging on a hot mic about being able to sexually assault women.”

Trump also tweeted about the lack of facts being established in the allegations made by Dr. Ford.

“Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left wing politicians who don’t want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay,” Trump tweeted. “Facts don’t matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C.”
