The Washington Post is being mocked for a “pathetic” report that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh racked up credit card debt on Washington Nationals baseball tickets -- even though he paid off the bill.
Post investigative reporter Amy Brittain’s piece was headlined, “Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh piled up credit card debt by purchasing Nationals tickets, White House says.” The report vilifies the common practice of one individual laying out the funds needed to secure baseball tickets for a group of friends who want to be seated next to each other.
Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “the left and their handmaidens in the mainstream media can’t even settle on a narrative,” which is evident by the Post’s coverage.
NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that the reaction the story has received on Twitter was proof it backfired.
