. and I called many of Kavanaugh's 65 female HS acquittances who signed a letter supporting him. After his accuser came out on Sunday, only TWO said they still stood by him. More than two dozen didn't respond, and two declined to comment.

Republicans held the Scalia seat vacant for over a year on the "principle" the voters deserved a voice. There's a midterm election 50 days from now, and troubling new information about Kavanaugh is emerging. Shouldn't voters get a chance to weigh in here, too?

I am detained again at Ben Gurion Airport. This time I was in the US for 6 days for a Yiddish cultural studies fellowship. Woman at the passport control: "I am forced to detain you." Me: "Really?" She smiles apologetically: "It's not me. It's the State of Israel."

I've been at the ABC for years and never seen this level of abuse - from left and right. No enthusiasm for our attempt at balance; none for our desire to reach out to all, and not be hunted into niche broadcasting. My fear: only when it's gone will they realise what's been lost.
