Concha & Hemingway Discuss 'Media Smears' of 'Guilty Until Innocent' Kavanaugh
On Sunday's episode of "Life, Liberty & Levin," host Mark Levin spoke with media analyst Joe Concha and "The Federalist" editor Mollie Hemingway about how the media deemed Justice Brett Kavanaugh "guilty until proven innocent" of misconduct claims against him during his nomination.
Levin said it appeared "basic norms" like due process, the preponderance of evidence and standard of proof all "went out the window" with the media and the Democrats in their view of Kavanaugh.
The Maryland jurist was accused by several women of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
"Brett Kavanaugh, by many in our media, was deemed guilty until proven innocent," Concha said.
He cited a Media Research Center study that reported that more than 340 minutes of network news coverage centered around accusations against Kavanaugh, while only about 20 minutes of Kavanaugh's denials of such.
Concha said that, like during the 2008 financial crisis, the market went "over the cliff," the media did the same during the Kavanaugh nomination process.
Hemingway said the media have been acting "more like [military] generals," directing the way the country should go.
