World media rips Kavanaugh hearing ‘spectacle’

London (CNN)It was a day in which Brett Kavanaugh did himself few favors. After the US Supreme Court nominee’s hearing on Thursday, even commentators on Fox News portrayed him as an aggressor with, as one said, “guns blazing” — the very opposite characterization the judge had hoped to achieve.

That was not only their assessment as they watched as Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, detail her allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh in their high school days.
Media around the world has also zoomed in on Kavanaugh’s performance, with British news organizations in particular ridiculing Kavanaugh for his repeated denials of having high school drinking habits, and for unconvincingly painting a picture of his past as a conscientious student too consumed with sports to have time for women.
