Washington Post media critic bashes Brett Kavanaugh as ‘desperate’ for interviewing with Fox News

Published

Media Critic Erik Wemple, wrote in The Washington Post that “statements apparently aren’t doing it for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh,” since the judge decided to appear on Fox News.

On Monday, Kavanaugh interviewed with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum in a move that Wemple slammed as “desperate.”

“[It’s a ] historic ‘get’ for Fox News. Not only is Kavanaugh the No. 1 individual in the news right now, but Supreme Court nominees simply don’t do network interviews as they’re bouncing through the confirmation process,” Wemple wrote. “Perhaps it’s a sign of desperation [for] Kavanaugh & Co.”

He then suggested that it could be a sign that former Fox News executive turned White House deputy chief of staff for communication, Bill Shine, might be mixing up his workplaces.

“Then again, perhaps it’s a sign of Bill Shine linking his former workplace with his current workplace,” he wrote.

He suggested that Fox News has a chance to do the “hard questioning,” but won’t be surprised if they blow it.

“A huge national audience will be watching MacCallum interview the Kavanaughs, conferring on her a chance for the news operation at Fox News to draw a bright line between the Sean Hannitys, the Tucker Carlsons and the Fox & Friends of the world. Don’t be surprised if she seizes it,” he wrote.

Trump is endangering the US by governing like he’s directing a reality TV show: officials

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
