Reid, Lefty Senator LOSE IT Over Conservative Groups Fighting HR1
June 15th, 2021 11:07 PM
When conservative organizations advocate for conservative principles, the reaction from liberals and their media allies isn’t simply fight back, but crush them. That was the message Tuesday night on MSNBC as ReidOut host Joy Reid and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) called for the passage of the dangerous For the People Act so they can use the government like “an air force” and “stop…

Scarborough: 'I Know' Chief Justice Roberts Will Never Overturn Roe
June 11th, 2019 7:52 AM
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "I know" the Roberts Supreme Court won't overturn Roe v. Wade, in light of a recent poll showing only 13% of Americans favor overturning it. Refusing to apply the Constitution, bowing instead to the public sentiment of the day, would represent an appalling abdication of the Court's duty.
NYT Justifies Investigations Into GOP Court Nominees: 'We Had to Try'
August 13th, 2018 8:15 AM
The New York Times is trying its best to find dirt on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, filing an odd public information request with his wife’s employer. And in 2005 they tried to access sealed private records involving then-Bush-nominee John Roberts. Even the paper's commenters weren't convinced of the paper's fairness and balance, wondering where that investigative zeal…
The Liberal Media’s Perpetually Skewed SCOTUS Coverage
July 9th, 2018 8:00 AM
President Trump won’t officially announce his latest nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court until this evening, but it’s already easy to predict the liberal media’s spin. As with all recent Republican nominees, reporters will repeatedly label them as “conservative,” which will nicely reinforce the Democrats’ strategy to paint them as outside “the mainstream.” But when Democratic Presidents announce…
Supreme Court Nominees Always Too Conservative for the Liberal Media
March 15th, 2016 10:25 AM
Whomever Barack Obama selects to fill the vacancy left by the death of Antonin Scalia expect the liberal media to worry the selection isn’t progressive enough.

NYT Defends 'Quite Conservative' John Roberts From Right-Wing 'Wrath'
September 30th, 2015 10:15 AM
New York Times Supreme Court correspondent Adam Liptak filed a liberal pleasing analysis Tuesday, fervently insisting Chief Justice John Roberts is a staunch conservative, despite what ridiculous right-wingers may think. His reported opinion piece, based on voting analysis by law professors, strained to show Roberts as a loyal conservative Justice, but the evidence is hardly as cut and dried as…
Chuck Todd Serves Up 'Fact Check' for Mistake Ted Cruz Didn't Make
September 15th, 2015 11:21 AM
Imagine if the presidents Bush had refrained from appointing David Souter and John Roberts to the Supreme Court, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz said before the Eagles Forum conference in St. Louis over the weekend. If the Bushes went with "rock-ribbed conservatives" instead, Cruz suggested, the high court would have rejected Obamacare and same-sex marriage.
Meet the Press moderator Chuck…
Veteran NYT Supreme Court Reporter Hits Its 'Regression on Race'
October 3rd, 2014 8:32 AM
New York Times former Supreme Court reporter Linda Greenhouse held a dubious celebration of Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. in her nytimes.com column, while attacking the Court’s "steady regression on race and its deregulatory hijacking of the First Amendment" and Justice Clarence Thomas's "full-steam-back-to-the-18th-century" approach to constitutional interpretation.
Supreme Court 'Tilts Further to the Right'...After Tacking Firmly to t
October 5th, 2013 6:55 AM
Richard Wolf of USA Today can’t use the word “left” to describe recent Supreme Court rulings, only “right.” It came in a story headlined “Supreme Court poised to tilt further to the right.”
When the Court tacks left, it’s a “blockbuster” term of “landmark" decisions. Wolf began: “After two blockbuster terms in which it saved President Obama's health care law and advanced the cause of same-…

Name That Party: New York Times Edition
March 17th, 2011 6:43 PM
The New York Times's Web site on Tuesday reported, "Former City Council Leader Avoids Prison for Tax Evasion." Andrew J. Stein didn't pay taxes on $1 million in income in 2008. His punishment: Three years' probation and 500 hours of community service.
Possibly Stein's cause was helped by Geraldo Rivera asking the judge for leniency. Or maybe the judge was impressed by Stein's cooperation…
