    NBC in the US are in hot water again, the same company that suppressed Ronan Farrows Weinstein story had proof and an interview from a witness that debunked the Avenatti allegation of drink spiking and gang rape by Kavenaugh and they had this prior to his confirmation vote. Sometimes its not fake news that reveals bias but the non reporting.
    Avenatti is in all sorts of trouble as is the accuser who appear to have lied to the judicial committee, his corroborating witness disagreed with the testimony he wrote and released for her.
    Fake news can happen easily in the fast moving media world but this is pretty egregious when you join the mob in ruining a guys reputation just because of who appointed him when you have verifiable information to the contrary.
