Accuracy in Media

The New York Times and Associated Press are digging into the activities of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley by filing requests under the Maryland Public Information Act, seeking emails she sent as the town manager of The Village of Chevy Chase Section 5, a suburb of Washington, D.C.

The AP request took an expansive view, requesting “all emails sent or received” by Ashley Kavanaugh’s Village of Chevy Chase email address while the Times focused on“any emails to or from Ms. Kavanaugh that contain any of the keywords or terms listed below.”

“Judge”

“Brett”

“Husband”

“Supreme Court”

“SCOTUS”

“Trump”

“Obama”

“Bush”

“Clinton”

“Democrat”

“Republican”

“GOP”

“Conservative”

“Liberal”

“Starr”

“Abortion”

“Gun”

“Gay”

“Federalist”

“Leonard Leo”

The list shows a bias on the part of the Times to target Ashley Kavanaugh with words that are more likely to be used by political activists than those of a local town manager.
