Press Coverage on the Assassination Attempt of Justice Kavanaugh

The New York Times lists sixteen news stories above the attempted murder of a Justice.


If you log onto now, and check above the fold, you will see a lovely story about the Jurassic Park cast and Kelly Clarkson's performance. If you scroll down, down, down, down, down, you will find a story about the attempted assassination of a Justice. By my count, the Kavanaugh assassination attempt is perhaps the sixteenth most important news item of the day! Oh, and according to the Washington Post, Kavanaugh and his family were home last night.

I agree with Nate Silver.
