CNN Gives Virtually No Air Time to Pro-Kavanaugh Evidence

Last night, two of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high school classmates, each named by accuser Christine Blasey Ford as witnesses to the 1982 assault she alleges Kavanaugh committed, issued public statements flatly denying that they saw anything even resembling Ford’s story.
From 4:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN spent 3 hours and 23 minutes talking about the Kavanaugh controversy, but only about eight minutes of that were devoted to passing along these confirmations of Kavanaugh’s denial.
During ten hours of on-air programming on Wednesday, CNN gave a mere five minutes to Judge’s statement, half of it (2 minutes, 34 seconds) during their little-watched 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Eastern hours. During the 4:00 a.m. hour, Early Start co-host Christine Romans dismissed Judge’s denial: “What is his credibility in saying he didn’t see this kind of behavior if he has written extensively about become blackout drunk with his friends — blackout drunk with his friends.”
