CBS Absurdly Claims Jackson ‘Almost Sounded Like A Conservative’
During a break in day two of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Senate confirmation hearings on Tuesday, CBS News special coverage laughably tried to claim that the left-wing Supreme Court nominee “almost sounded like a conservative” as she answered questions from lawmakers.
