The New York Times is under fire for the photos on Friday.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Prosecutor Christine Blasey Ford are both powerful, heartfelt testimony on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee – but The New York Times selected side-by-side pictures for Friday’s front page, paint a liberal narrative, according to critics.
Ford, the defendants in the case of the nomination of sexual assault during a high school house party that appears on the search, ready, and confident, with your hand raised, when she was sworn in. Kavanaugh was also reared sworn with the hand, but the paper decided to use, instead of a picture of him, looking angry, while you are sitting.
Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News that the times ” – the title page is a microcosm of the bias in the mainstream media.
“This is what I love about The New York Times. Every time some idiot claims that there is no media bias to show, to this day, the paper, to prove that you said the wrong way,” Gainor. “These photos are the perfect liberal narrative. You see the quiet, law-abiding, liberal Prosecutor, and the evil conservative defendant. What is the context that is throwing the left him a gang rapist. Any reasonable person would be angry about it. And it should be.”

By comparison, the New York Post a similar picture of Ford used lifted with the hand, but the image Post-selected editors, of Kavanaugh also showed him with his hand raised. News busters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that tell “a slight tweak, and one that doesn’t notice them normally, help on the surface”, but the selected photos, a story.
“The reality is that you Kavanaugh wanted to show how out of joint device and, based on the still shot they used, while Ford looked confident as she took her oath,” Houck said.
The times ” editorial staff has not made his opinion clear with a Friday story headlined, “Why Brett Kavanaugh was credible,” but the front-page image is accompanied by a direct message.
Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News that the biggest take-away from Kavanaugh’s was a testimony to how desperately he seemed to be about the allegations against him.
“That being said, the images of the times, chose the were meant by him and Dr. Ford, to paint a particular narrative, she was brave and honest, while he was angry and bitter,” he said.
Conservative strategist Chris Barron, in General, not punches when it comes to the time, but he didn’t have a problem with Friday’s front page.
“I can see where some would be [a Problem], but I think it reflects judge Kavanaugh is a righteous indignation in this whole process,” says Barron told Fox News. “He was angry – and rightly so – to the political smear campaign that was orchestrated against him and his family.”
