CNN, MSNBC Obsess 80x More Over Thomas Ethics Questions Than Sotomayor
The cable networks of CNN and MSNBC spent a good portion of Thursday obsessing over a ProPublica report that Justice Clarence Thomas did not disclose friend Harlon Crow paying for his-great nephew's tuition while simultaneously downplaying—and in MSNBC's case, completely ignorning— reports that Justice Sonia Sotomayor did not recuse herself from a case involving the publishing company Random…
Todd, Reid Agree 'Imagine The Reaction' If Thomas Were Sotomayor
It was impossible to tell the difference between NBC’s allegedly straight newsman Chuck Todd and MSNBC’s Joy Reid as they both wondered what the GOP’s reaction would be if Justice Clarence Thomas was Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Harlan Crow were George Soros.

On his Tuesday night show, left-wing CNN anchor Don Lemon wondered what is really behind Republican criticism of President Biden's pledge to only consider black women for his upcoming Supreme Court appointee.

Despite liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor being at the center of a series of recent controversies, during a live interview on NBC’s Today show Tuesday morning, co-host Savannah Guthrie didn’t ask the jurist about a single one.
