Pogrebin and Kelly: It Was Totes Our Editor Who Accidentally Removed the Disclosure That The "Victim" Denies Max Stier's Claim
Also Pogrebin and Kelly: Oh Yeah, We Also "Accidentally" Forgot to Mention This In Our NPR Puff-Piece, Too

A lot of "accidental" omissions of a key detail which makes their book much less salable, if mentioned.

And they keep on "accidentally" forgetting to mention it.

Last night on Lawrence O'Donnell, the pair threw their editors under the bus and claimed, almost certainly falsely, that the editors decided to cut the key fact that this story is all about a "victim" who denies the event ever happened.

But when they recounted this same story on NPR, they strangely also failed to note this key detail -- no clumsy editor stumbling around making accidental deletions!

Apparently they just don't think this fact helps them sell their bullshit book, so they frequently "forget" to mention it.


In fact, the omission was so significant that Gross recorded an update and inserted it into the show immediately thereafter, noting the omission and how it also had to be corrected at the New York Times.

Pogrebin and Kelly have a pattern of omitting this detail, and other key details.

Even Terry Gross of NPR thought that the omission of this fact was beyond the pale, and rushed to add in the fact herself after the interview.


Whoops!

Whoopsie!

Another Whoops/Whoopsie: Kelly and Pogrebin commit another bald-faced "accident."

They claim that Brett Kavanaugh's fellow classmates were "mum" about these charges, and then claim that silence equals quiet condemnation.

But Kavanaugh's fellow classmates weren't "mum" about the claims -- they actively denied them.


Pogrebin and Kelly’s work has a pattern of omitting exculpatory evidence that supports Kavanaugh's consistent claim that he never sexually assaulted anyone. The Atlantic piece is excerpted from the book, which has the same error. Oddly, the book quotes the statement on page 140 and page 141, which they characterize as disloyal to Ramirez.

This article will be updated once The Atlantic corrects this latest error.

They keep accidentally omitting things which disprove their claim and would tank their book's sales.

This, by the way, is actual malice.

Supercut: Watch Kelly and Pegrobin spend 78 seconds first claiming that their editors made All The Mistakes and then changing their story to "it doesn't matter who did what, it's just a distraction from the real story, which is that you should buy our shit book which is a dry-hole bust so we have to constantly lie about it."
