The Big Interview
Martha gained a spot on national headlines when she scored an exclusive interview with Bret Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh was a Supreme Court judge nominee that was getting ready to be confirmed when allegations of sexual assault by a woman named Doctor Ford. Ford claimed that during a high school party, Kavanaugh and his friend held Ford down on a bed while Kavanaugh grinded on her. Ford also claimed that he put his hand over her mouth to prevent people from hearing her plea for help.
The story was very polarizing and created division of supporters. The supporters of Kavanaugh mostly consisted of Republicans that wanted to see another Republican secure a Supreme Court seat. They made the argument that Ford’s claim was false and just a tactic by the Democratic Party to block Kavanaugh’s nomination. President Trump publicly supported Kavanaugh and said that Ford’s story had no substance. Since she could not remember all of the details, he didn’t think that she could be counted on for accuracy.
The people who supported Ford said that voting in Kavanaugh for a powerful position that would last many years was a huge mistake and an insult to women. To have a person who sexually assaulted a woman as a Supreme Court judge was a scary proposition. The biggest strike against Kavanaugh was when he refused to have a FBI investigation. If he was truly innocent, he would have taken any chance to clear his name in the public eye.
When asked by Variety Magazine about her she secured the lucrative interview, Martha said, “I think he was anxious to get his story out. My staff and I have been furiously working this story, reaching out not only to Kavanaugh’s team, but also the women who have made allegations against him. I believe I got the interview in part because Kavanaugh felt my show would offer a fair shake. What viewers may not realize was how emotional Kavanaugh was during our talk. It was very clear to me that underneath it all, he was choking up. His feelings were very palpable.”
