    Default Started another book ...

    This one is called "Justice on Trial" and is by Molly Hemmingway and Carrie Severino.

    I've just started it but it looks pretty good. It is the tale of Mr Justice Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court and all of the maneuvering that went on over the following three months. It's probably not recreational reading but so far the book is right down at ground level, who did what and to whom. I'll probably only read it a chapter at a time because it is so dry. On the other hand, if you wish insight on what went on behind the scenes, this appears to be the book as it includes both sides of the story without favor to either.

    I'm finished and no single writing I've found better shows the willful misbehavior of the media. At each step that happened the media reported something as a problem for Judge Kavanaugh while either that simply wasn't true or was only part of the story. One case explains this. Just after he was appointed, roughly 60 persons signed a letter saying that the nomination should be withdrawn and why. None of them even had made an acquaintance of Judge Kavanaugh but the letter got wide press. At about the same time a letter signed by his former clerks said he was of outstanding character. No media, none, presented this. This was repeated over and over.
