Imagine working for a news corporation like the New York Times and you decide to write a book in order to cash in on the anti-Kavanaugh ResistanceLOL. You have this enormous corporation behind you. News media outfits and other Leftist organizations are eager to help you push the snot out of your book. And the Times itself happily gives you space to publish excerpts a few days before the book’s release to help promote sales. Then along comes Mollie Hemingway who gets ahold of an advance copy and blows up your entire plan.
It’s not an understatement to say when it comes to holding the flagrantly biased and irresponsible press to account, Mollie Hemingway is a superhero.
She’s friggin’ Wonder Woman.
Within 24 hours, Mollie had those two hack writers playing defense — scrambling to make excuses for their shoddy work and tossing everybody under the bus in order to absolve themselves of fault.
What should have been a media blitz of softball interviews to goose book sales turned into probing questions about their repeated missteps.
All because Mollie Hemingway singlehandedly exposed these woman as the hacks they are.
This past week was chock full of Schadenfreude for everyone who is sick and tired of the anti-Trump, fake news media.
Authors Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s explosive book launch didn’t just sputter out like a wet fart. It blew up in their faces like an unstable bomb. Even the New York Times itself was blasted with shrapnel.
The assumption these writers made was no journalist or reporter would dare do even a modicum of due diligence. Pogrebin and Kelly simply expected everybody to fall in lock-step and give them ample airtime to make their outlandish accusations and pretend their shoddy reporting was anything but shoddy.
And, given the incestuous nature of the news media — not to mention the shared Trump derangement — that was a damn good assumption to make.
What they didn’t factor in was Mollie Hemingway who, along with her co-author Carrie Severino, had already written the exhaustive, well-researched, well-written book Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.
Hemingway is so well-versed on the details of that event that these two authors’ shoddy work couldn’t hold up to her scrutiny.
As a result, every Democrat who jumped on the initial “explosive” story ended up looking like complete prats.
But the biggest prats of all were the two New York Times “reporters.”
And it’s all thanks to Mollie Hemingway.
This morning, I sat down and listened to yesterday’s Federalist Radio Hour podcast featuring Hemingway and fellow Senior Editor David Harsanyi. And let me tell you, it is one hell of an hour.
Hemingway goes into the background on everything that happened this past week. And it’s blistering.
It’s Saturday. So why not take an hour to listen for yourself. Trust me; you’ll enjoy it.
Give it a listen HERE.
