NBC has come under criticism for three separate articles on Brett Kavanaugh that have accuracy problems. In one article, NBC spread an anonymous and uncorroborated letter from a woman who claimed to have heard that Kavanaugh pushed his girlfriend against a wall. The woman later retracted her claim, but hours later, NBC published the story anyway. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slammed NBC as “a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view.”
-NBC News published a misleading article that claimed Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh misled the public on when he first found out about Deborah Ramirez’s accusation against him.
-NBC spread a claim in an anonymous, entirely uncorroborated letter allegedly from a woman who claimed to have heard that Kavanaugh pushed his girlfriend up against a wall in 1998.
-NBC also faced criticism for reporting on evidence-free social media posts from a woman who claimed to have heard rumors of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation during high school.
