Accuracy in Media

In a tweet on Saturday, a writer for CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” expressed her happiness at the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation during a particularly nasty confirmation battle.

“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,” read Ariel Dumas’s post. Dumas briefly locked her account before deleting the tweet altogether.






Dumas apologized on Sunday for her “tone-deaf sarcasm,” blaming it on her anger that Kavanaugh was confirmed despite the sexual assault allegations leveled against him.

“The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally. The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on Twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it.”
