Just minutes after Christine Blasey Ford, a California-based psychologist, went public with accusations of teenage sexual assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, internet investigators began combing her past for clues about her possible motives, and trying to cast doubt on the veracity of her claims. Electric youth replay rar. Since then, Dr. Blasey, as she is known professionally, has been the subject of a torrent of misinformation online. Some viral rumors about Blasey have been quickly debunked.
But false claims have continued to spread on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and other social networks. The Kavanaugh confirmation • • • • • • • Claim: Blasey’s students left negative reviews on her RateMyProfessors.com profile, calling her “unprofessional” and citing her “dark” personality.

Ford, a professor of human services at California State University Fullerton. Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh’s accuser, teaches at Palo Alto University. This story made an early appearance on Grabien, a little-known news website. It was then picked up by several right-wing media outlets, including by Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who tweeted a link to it, and the Drudge Report, which featured it on its home page.
Grabien later issued a correction and published an editor’s note apologizing for the error. But the article remained online, and several other websites have since picked it up. Software billing karaoke gratis.
This claim seems to have originated with a Twitter user, Josh Cornett, who appears to have a history of amplifying right-wing misinformation. (The user’s account has tweeted messages of support for QAnon, a sprawling pro-Trump conspiracy theory.) On Tuesday, Cornett, referring to Sen.
Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., tweeted: “According to sources Diane [sic] Feinstein’s reluctance to mention the Kavanaugh accuser’s letter during confirmation session is because the accuser sent a similiar [sic] letter directed at Judge Gorsuch last year.” In a follow-up tweet, he said he had “no idea” if the information was true, but that “my source has been very accurate in the past.”. They have claimed that she wrote on Facebook in 2016 that “Scalia types must be banned from law.” Another variant of this claim also has her writing that “Scalia types must be banned from courts.” Neither phrase appears in a search of public Facebook posts in 2016. It’s possible that the phrases appeared in posts that have since been deleted from Blasey’s accounts. But these claims don’t contain links to old posts, or any other form of attribution. The account of the Twitter user who appeared to originate the claim, @LodgeNixon, has since been deleted, and no evidence of the purported Facebook post has emerged. Memes containing this dubious claim, and several others about Blasey, have gone viral on Facebook, and have been shared inside several large private Facebook groups. It is no secret that Blasey is a registered Democrat who has given money to progressive organizations and campaigns — these facts were reported by the The Washington Post in the original story naming her as Kavanaugh’s accuser.
