Mollie Hemingway: The Media Told Us that a Serial Rapist Had Been Nominated to the Supreme Court and We Needed to "Believe Victims."
So Why Have They Completely Stopped Reporting on This Story, Now That the "Serial Rapist" is a Justice?

It kind of suggests that the media was lying when they claimed they #Believed so strongly, and that they knew from the start they were only executing a Political Op with the elective-office branch of the Democrat-Media Complex, and now that the political fight is over, there's no need to continue the sham op.

Kind of like the Russia Collusion Op we hear less and less about.

Hemingway asks some semi-rhetorical questions, but only semi. Though the questions suggest an answer, I'm sure she'd like answers from the media -- and if the media had any answers which could dispel the suspicion that they are simply the Audio-Visual Squad of the Democrat Party, they would offer them.

While Blasey Ford is unclear on the precise location of the claimed assault, Maryland police said they would fully investigate any allegations brought to them. Has that been done? The argument was that the multi-week delay in September was insufficient for a proper investigation of her claims. If that's true, what has been done in October? Why have we heard nothing?

If the media and other Democratic leaders wanted to have any credibility at all that the post-hearing release of multiple allegations wasn’t a pure political stunt for which they were willing to destroy a man, they'd continue to fight for justice every day, wouldn't they? They would ask every Democratic candidate whether he believed Ford and supported impeaching Kavanaugh.

If the Kavanaugh confirmation circus were about justice for his alleged victims, instead of about killing his nomination by any means, we’d still be getting updates on this story, wouldn’t we?

So what does it mean that we're not getting updates? What does it mean that Democrats are not being asked by mainstream journalists about whether they support Kavanaugh's impeachment? Why have the media given up on investigating this story that they obsessed over for a few weeks in September and October?

One answer: The media knows, like the Democrat Party knows, that this political operation is not helpful to them during an election season.

So... the media and Democrats can choose to pursue or not pursue a story, believe or not believe a precious victim, based only on crass political calculations?

If so: What was all the sanctimonious preening about if Republicans chose to not believe this bullshit? Are Democrats and their Audio-Visual Squad in the media the only citizens with a high enough Citizen Rights Rating to allow political self-interest some space in their decision-making process?
