Times says it was wrong to have writer on Kavanaugh story

(UPDATE - 1:19 P.M.) In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, a New York Times spokesperson says the paper should have commissioned a newsroom reporter to cover the alleged Kavanaugh incident instead of Bazelon.

In addition to citing Kavanaugh as a potential instigator of the fight, the police report also placed Kavanaugh's former friend and classmate, Chris Dudley, in the heart of the altercation.

Mr. Kavanaugh cursed, he said, and then "threw his beer at the guy."
Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", reads the report.

The New York Times gave a statement to reporter Yashar Ali explaining Bazelon is "not a news reporter" and sometimes writes op-eds for the opinion section.

When the man noticed Mr. Ludington, Mr. Kavanaugh and the others looking at him, he objected and told them to stop it, adding an expletive, Mr. Ludington said.
Kavanaugh has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct. It is hardly the most damning revelation, though it is relevant to Kavanaugh's truthfulness, given that he denied before the Senate ever having gotten aggressive while drinking. Kavanaugh, who was not arrested, was attending Yale University. Kavanaugh was not arrested for the attack, but he and four other men were questioned by police.

"There's no mention of alcohol at all, actually, no mention of intoxication playing a role", he said.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the police report. Dudley stressed that while he and Kavanaugh drank together in college, he never saw Kavanaugh black out.

"Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of freshman year". "The person they are trying to describe would not be able to function day to day".

In a follow-up tweet, the Yale Law Schooler lecturer wrote: "Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students".

"Without making it sound less important, this is a college town - things haven't changed in that we deal with these types of incidents on a daily basis", Hartman said.
