After Promoting Avenatti Accusers NBC Tries Walking Quietly Toward the Exits…

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a criminal referral to the DOJ today surrounding Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti and claims from the accusers he brought forth.   Hours later,…. all of a sudden NBC, the primary advocacy media for Avenatti and his accusers, starts publicly questioning the details of their interactions?

In a late-evening publication of NBC News Investigations, journalists Kate Snow and Anna Schecter outline the contradictions between Creepy Porn Lawyer and two female accusers Avenatti put them in contact with.

In a transparent effort to retain credibility, the face of NBC, Chuck Todd, now claims Avenatti “mislead” the NBC reporters. It needs to be emphasized here that none of these contradictions were discussed by NBC during the controversy around the Kavanaugh confirmation.  They kept quiet about it when it mattered.

NBC […] In the second statement, the unidentified woman said she witnessed Kavanaugh “spike” the punch at high school parties in order to sexually take advantage of girls. But less than 48 hours before Avenatti released her sworn statement on Twitter, the same woman told NBC News a different story.

When asked in the phone interview if she ever witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards girls, the woman replied, “no.” She did describe a culture of heavy drinking in high school that she took part in, and said Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were part of that group.

[…]  According to the second woman’s declaration that Avenatti provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee, she said: “During the years 1981-82, I witnessed firsthand Brett Kavanaugh, together with others, ‘spike’ the ‘punch’ at house parties I attended with Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol. I understood this was being done for the purpose of making girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say ‘No.'”

[…]  But reached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration. After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”  (read more)

    The still lying Chuck Todd lies about being mislead. This why they are the Enemy of the People. I don’t want to hear another whiny word out of them complaining that POTUS and his supporters call them Fake News. They give example after example every single day.

      The willful stupidity of it all is, if the reporters were able to be led, they were not doing their jobs.
      Did they learn nothing from the Rolling Stone debacle?
      If they didn’t check this woman and her outlandish claims out in the least, that’s on them, not on Creepy Porn Lawyer or the lunatic.
      I repeat: if you can be LED, you are not suited to the job of journalist.

      It’s much more likely that they got caught with their pants down, pulling a Rolling Stone stunt, and are in desperate coverup (pull your pants up) mode.

      Again I say, to the celebrities who spoke in hushed, serious tones about “these women” –
      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    That is why the President calls them Fake News. Todd should go to jail as well or face a lawsuit for defamation. Too bad Kavanaugh is too much of a stand up guy to go after him. What a bunch of liars at NBC. They did not ask one question at all, but then when Avenatti is criminally pursued they know the gig is up and now start to backtrack. FAKE NEWS!!!

      The great tragedy here for America is — the MSM doesn’t care when they withhold vital information – or if they knowingly send out fake news. There should be some laws that hold their feet to the fire over this. Perhaps they have “gone a bridge too far” lately — and that just might happen.

    I still think DiFi and Company had “their” guy in the FBI who was ready with a mitt on standby, playing out-field to catch the Justice Kavanaugh ball for the investigation they screamed for. The ball got thrown to the short stop instead and the runner was thrown out. Troubled times.

      I thought so too, Co. Early in the CommiCrat hue and cry for an FBI investigation, China Doll (Feinstein) said something that gave me that impression that they had their own FIBbie just waiting for the call.

      Can’t recall the exact clip, but it left the same strong impression with me as well.

      Oh, now I remember. China Doll was screaming for transparency and full disclosure of the FBI investigation… until the ‘wrong’ team was tasked with the investigation. Then she suddenly switched to insisting on the confidentiality of the investigation… and updates, because they weren’t going to get them from ‘their’ FIBbie.

        Yep. Replete with set, props, lighting, music, tonal inflection, facial expression, narrative coherence, etc. Their “news” product is consciously designed and manufactured propaganda intended to valence voter opinion toward specific actions and outcomes destructive of our national polity, our sense of being all-of-us “Americans”. That these clowns increasingly flounder and fail and wither into irrelevance is a public service of nearly incalculable worth — the vote I cast for DJT would have been justified on this point alone. They really are the Enemy of the People, and he’s destroying them, and they are in their death throes. and it’s glorious to behold.

      Avenatti had a little bit of a run, but lately he can’t win for losing. The judge rules that he owes his former partner $4.85 million, his firm gets evicted from their LA office, and he and SweatyNick get referred to DOJ for investigation, all in the same week.

  8. I’m proposing a new analogy for the Direct Democracy vs. Managed Democracy paradigm: cost-push vs. demand-pull inflation. Push is the bottom-up, propulsive force of the Will of the People. Pull is the manipulative, diversionary desires of the Elite.

    The Media’s job is fundamentally misdirectional and as Adorno insisted, programatically dishonest. Through the endless propagation of false consciousness the People must be convinced that the Pull is actually the Push.

    This shell-game is breaking down in the Trump Era. Fake News is a more tactile, street-level term for false consciousness propagation. Trump is a instinctive branding genius. Period.

    This divergence –which has the opinion-shapers in conniptions– is on stark display in the Gallup vs. Media Research Center numbers, below. Even after the desperate steps taken to shut down alt-media (and yes, the operative term is desperation), the divergence grows. The collective wisdom of the People is well onto the game now. Managed Democracy will be hard-pressed to gather them back.

    This doesn’t stop CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Fox News’ Chris Wallace (to select from dozens of bleeding talking heads) from repeatedly stabbing themselves with their own hubris, day after day. We’re in the terrain of dark comedy and self-injury now.

    There should be no way that NBC can back out of this. If an ignorant rube in the middle of Kansas could instantly detect a BS story, the professional journalists should have detected it. They could have had the decency to pull CPL aside and recommend a more believable story. Heck since they are just making it up anyway, the professional editors could have drafted a fairy tale that more people would believe. I recommend they put a could good fiction writers on retainer from the middle of the country to provide their articles.

    The thing is, this garbage is not that satisfying. If I’m going to be lied to, I want the lie to be halfway believable. I don’t want to be told an uprising occurred because of a video that 1K people watched on YouTube. I don’t want to be told a man in the public eye for 30 – 40 years is a covert white supremacist. I don’t want to be told that a Secretary of State is so technologically inept that she doesn’t understand what “wiping” a server means. I don’t want to be told a candidate for the Supreme Court with a 20+ year track record was a serial gang rapist.

    Satisfy me with some technical anomaly buried deep inside a subsection of an obscure law that makes this unbelievable thing OK. At the very least I won’t immediately sniff it out, and I surely won’t research the anomaly. I would prefer my eyes glaze over with some mundane, technical garbage that is too boring research than the salacious news they pump out.

    If you haven’t read the linked NBC article read it. It is horrifying that Avenatti was given the megaphone at all, although in retrospect, Avenatti’s participation highlighted the absurdity of Ford’s Swiss cheese story, and helped to get the superbly qualified, honest and entirely innocent, Brett Kavanaugh confirmed. (On a related matter, anyone who is giving their support to Avenatti’s “presidential ambitions” is an idiot. Poor America, our education system has gone to H.)

Just do a YouTube search on “MSNBC Avenatti” and you’ll find dozens of videos! I remember one clip of libtard Stephanie Ruhle gushing over Avenatti and panelists referring to him as a “savior”.

      There’s two reasons that John Q Public is catching on:
      John Q Public is full of, essentially decent people.
      People who go through life trying not to harm others.
      Who are shocked when someone tells a huge falsehood
      aiming at hurting others. Completely alien to them.

      John Q Public also has came across opposite types
      through their lives. The thing that they notice about these
      opposite types, the eventual dead give away is that things
      continually happen that would never occur when these
      individiuals are around. Whether it be a drug seeking
      family member, or a dishonest co worker, they can
      sense that something will be off when said person is
      around.

      The media is so inherently dishonest that they cannot
      understand honesty. Cannot realize how regular people
      can spot their motives, especially when the motives happen
      basically like clockwork. It’s got to the point that everytime
      the regular Joe makes any gains, sees anything helpful
      occurring, they wait and see how the big boys are going
      to mess it up through lies.

      The big boys did it far enough apart that it was hard
      to prove. Would scream that people were bad, crazy
      when they noticed. YTG has been paying attention
      to the pacing, going back to 1994. The frequency,
      the boldness of the lies has been in hyperdrive since
      Benghazi. Went into warp speed around 2014.

      John Q Public is witnessing on a grand scale the
      crazy guy at work, the drug dependent relative,
      everyone they’ve met that’s bad. Things are
      “happening” just like when these folks are around.
      Only now, these things onlly happen when the
      MSM is in the room.

    Avenatti was not an attempt to mislead NBC or Chuck Todd.
    Avenatti was an attempt to mislead the Senate. Hence the criminal referral from Sen Chuck Grassley.

    Only a person with real mental problems would move the focus from the Grassley criminal referral of Avenatti to themselves. The usual diagnosis is similar to narcissistic egocentric sociopathic personality disorder. The person is quite often a danger to society, and a criminal.

    NBC owes it to their employee and the public to obtain some help for this person, and to remove him from his broadcast position. (would wager there is a MeToo horde of wymyn out there who would love to assist for the right amount…Go Fund Me, anyone?).
