Looks like USA Today is competing with NYT for the most craven, shameless pseudo-journalism hit pieces.

It was “re-edited” only because they got called out on social media.

Via Daily Caller.

A Friday USA Today column stating that Judge Brett Kavanaugh “should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around” was re-edited the next day and the original tweet to the column was deleted.

“The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around,” USA Today sports columnist Erik Brady wrote in the piece which has since been changed to an opinion column.

“A previous tweet contained a statement that has since been edited out of a sports column,” tweeted USA Today on Saturday. “That tweet has been deleted. The updated opinion column and editor’s clarification are here.”….

The updated column included an editor’s note explaining the re-editing and addressing the intent of the commentary.

Editor’s note: Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee he loves coaching his daughters’ girls basketball teams, but said in testimony Thursday “thanks to what some of you on this side of the committee have unleashed, I may never be able to coach again.” The intent of this commentary was to address that question. The column was re-edited to more closely reflect that intent and labeled to reflect it as the writer’s opinion…..

    Clear from article author’s Twitter account that he’s liberal.
    Sports Reporters have followed news reporters and put their opinion into everything they write and editors have stopped editing. As much of a Jerk that author is, his editor must be worse. As Tammy says, the Left doesn’t know how to stop themselves.

    Deep hatred for the Leftists. But what of it? What do we do about it?

    Heck, that’s nothing. Tomorrow’s editorial will demand he lose custody of his daughters. You think I’m kidding?

    Way, way back in the day when I traveled for business, I always enjoyed the color weather map and all the listings for the world cities on the back page of USA Today. But now, in 2018? I cannot remember the last time I either went to their website or picked up a single copy of this Democrat/Progressive propaganda rag…It’s like Airport CNN, it just won’t go away.
