Jane Mayer has been reporting alongside Ronan Farrow. So why isn’t she getting branded as a hero of #MeToo?

    Ruth Graham writes, “On Sunday night, the New Yorker published an explosive report detailing that a second woman is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh “thrust his penis in her face” at a party when he was a freshman at Yale University. The Ramirez story has been largely received as yet another bombshell sexual assault accusation against a powerful man, with a byline from Ronan Farrow. In a statement about the fact that the New York Times attempted to corroborate Ramirez’s account but ultimately did not publish it, executive editor Dean Baquet made it clear that his paper was not attempting to dispute the magazine’s reporting. “I’m not questioning their story,” he told the Washington Post. “We’ve been competing against Ronan Farrow for a year and he’s terrific.’”
