Conservative analyst says mainstream reporters were biased against Kavanaugh during hearings

Conservative political analyst Henry Olsen said on Monday that every mainstream reporter tweeting during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee was biased against Kavanaugh. 

"I was on Twitter throughout the Kavanaugh hearing day, and what was really telling to me, besides the partisanship of the left and right people in my feed, was how many reporters were tweeting, none of them pro-Kavanaugh. Not one," Olsen, a senior fellow at the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." 

"Anyone who's on Twitter that day, who was a mainstream reporter, was tweeting about Kavanaugh's lies and Blasey Ford's truths," he continued. 

Three women have come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. 

Kavanaugh forcefully denied the allegations during a Judiciary Committee hearing last Thursday, after Ford, his first accuser, delivered gripping testimony before the panel.

Republicans were quick to praise Kavanaugh's testimony while saying Ford was the victim of Democratic politics. 

Democrats, meanwhile, applauded Ford, saying she showed bravery during the hearings while  Kavanaugh acted unhinged. 

A YouGov survey released last week found that 41 percent of respondents said Ford was "definitely" or "probably" telling the truth, while 35 percent of respondents said the same about Kavanaugh's testimony.
