Morning Digestion – 9-17-19: KAVANAUGH SMEAR CAMPAIGN BLOWS UP IN NYT’S FACE. NOW THE REPORTERS BLAME THE EDITOR FOR DROPPING KEY FACT

The two reporters who are trying to re-smear Brett Kavanaugh are blaming NYT editors for dropping key fact from their report. The key fact is that the alleged victim of Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual harassment doesn’t remember it.

But I got things garbled here. The woman who can’t remember is not Deborah Rodriqguez, but another. Confusion on my part.
