It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend and then had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, client and porn star Stormy Daniels had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing lawsuits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.

Surprisingly, NBC Nightly News was the only broadcast network program to report on the development. Perhaps it was because he burned NBC with his grotesquely smear against Justice Brett Kavanaugh via his client Julie Swetnick. NBC breathlessly reported the claims when they knew well in advance that they had no validity. The Senate Judiciary Committee then referred Avenatti and Swetnick to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation.

“Now to that late word this evening from Stormy Daniels,” announced anchor Lester Holt with an odd excitement in his voice, “the adult film star making stunning allegations about her embattled lawyer Michael Avenatti regarding a lawsuit against President Trump.”

In the full report by White House correspondent Kristen Welker, she hyped the “dramatic twist” of Daniels coming out and blasting her former lawyer. “[H]er attorney Michael Avenatti sued President Trump for defaming her against her wishes and alleges Avenatti withheld information from her and launched a new crowd funding campaign without her permission,” Welker reported.
