Friday on “Deadline: White House,” host Nicolle Wallace blasted Fox News and other conservative media outlets for their “depravity” in defending Alabama ex-Chief Justice Roy Moore against accusations of child molestation.
Many conservative media figures have gone on the attack, accusing the women of lying and claiming that the story is an attack by Democrats or establishment Republicans against Moore’s campaign for U.S. Senate.
“Two things,” said former Obama administration official Ron Klain. “This is not a ‘he-said, she said.’ There are 30 separate sources in that Washington Post story. The woman in question — the 14-year-old, at the time — told her mother at the time, told two friends around the time. There are plenty of people in jail on less evidence than is in the Washington Post story.”
Wallace said that she was appalled to see Breitbart.com editor Joel Pollack trying to parse the ages of the girls, saying that only the 14-year-old was below the age of consent.
Pollack, she said, was acting “as though a 32-year-old man kissing and dating 16-year-old and 18-year-olds was fine simply because it wasn’t illegal at the time.”
“I want to ask you about the depravity of conservative media in defending their man Donald Trump,” she went on, “and defending Roy Moore who is now, again, not an ‘if true’ but four women have given their accounts. You either believe them or they don’t. I believe them. He’s now a known pedophile.”

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
