MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday said that the media needs to “step back” on their coverage of the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Brzezinski said that she was “disturbed” by the media’s weekend coverage of Kavanaugh during an appearance on CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” saying it was not the media’s job to take a side on whether Kavanaugh was innocent or guilty.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Women have to be careful right now because what we do collectively in terms of how we absorb whatever is being alleged and how we portray that out—that’s going to reflect back on us if we are jumping to conclusions,” co-host Melissa Lee said.

Brzezinski agreed with Lee and said that women have worked hard to get to the point where women can use their voices.

“I am not taking sides in this. We should be reporting this. The media should step back a little bit. I was watching television all weekend and I was really disturbed. Brett Kavanaugh was either a rapist or these two women were liars,” Brzezinski said. “That’s just not our job. This is not our job. If we want women to have a chance to have their voices, let’s not get in the way of that, but let’s not also overcorrect to the point where we lose in the long run.”
