For John, BLUF: Remember when it used to be an acceptable excuse to say "You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family"? Maybe that was back before no fault divorce. Nothing to see here; just move along.
That would be both The Old Gray Lady and the Associated Press.
And the subject of the broad Freedom of Information request would be Ms Ashley Kavanaugh, the wife of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ms Kavanaugh is the town manager of The Village of Chevy Chase Section 5.
From PowerLine, Mr John Hinderaker, 26 JULY 2018.
There is a list of over 20 terms the NYT Reporter, Mr Steve Eder is asking for searches on, including Bush, Obama, Clinton, Starr and gun, gay and abortion.
Here is how Mr Hinderaker ends his post:
They won’t find anything, of course. But this is what I want to know: When Stephen Breyer, Ruth Ginsburg, Sonia Sotamayor and Elena Kagan were appointed to the Court, did the Times, or the Associated Press, try to investigate documents sent or received by their family members?I disagree with the blogger. They will find something to whinge about. That is where we are in political discourse. Life is hard. Think about how much harder it must be if you are a Main Stream Media Reporter.
