New York Times congressional correspondent Carl Hulse predictably shrugged off Sen. Chuck Schumer’s volatile verbal threats directed at two Supreme Court justices nominated by the Trump administration: “Schumer Regrets Content, But Not Spirit, of Warning.” Hulse generally gives Democrats the benefit of the doubt when they make nasty attacks on Republicans, and similarly shrugged off Schumer’s inflammatory rhetoric at a rally, warning the justices not to take away abortion rights. Hulse let Schumer “clarify” his remarks.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls Chuck Schumer's attack on Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh "deeply disturbing" and "reprehensible." He says it is right for Chief Justice Roberts to have rebuked Schumer. But Joe goes on to sarcastically say that he expects Roberts and Mitch McConnell to also rebuke President Trump for attacking federal judges.
Univision’s coverage of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s dangerous tirade against TWO sitting Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States showcases simultaneous biases by omission and by commission- and abortion is the point of intersection.
It started out as a decent Wednesday segment of Cuomo Prime Time, where CNN host Chris Cuomo denounced Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for threatening two Supreme Court justices, saying it was something the public “should not accept.” But it rapidly morphed into yet another bitter bashing session with Cuomo railing against Chief Justice John Roberts for not calling President Trump “dangerous.”
MRC Latino Director Jorge Bonilla was the first on the scene Wednesday when he shared a video of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatening a “price” would be paid by conservative Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, if they decided to uphold a pro-life law. The video drew outrage from many and a powerful rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. But NBC Nightly News reported not a word of the incident and instead showcased cheerleading dads.
Hollywood actresses always seem to make an appearance whenever there's a chance that one less baby might be aborted. Celebrity feminists Elizabeth Banks and Busy Philipps joined Democratic lawmakers and pro-abortion demonstrators at the foot of the Supreme Court on March 4 to stand in solidarity with baby-killing as a recent legal case involving the procedure was being heard.
Former New York Times editorial board member Adam Cohen, who once served as lawyer for the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, reviewed Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus’s book on the Brett Kavanaugh nomination. (The book’s title gives the slant away: “Supreme Ambition -- Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover.”) Cohen’s review unloaded a cheap shot in the text box: “‘If you had asked me who was the biggest drinker in our class I would have said Brett,” one classmate said.” Anonymous hearsay? Now there’s some hard evidence for you. Down the memory hole: Any mention of the paper’s own botched, biased Kavanaugh investigation.
On the front page of Saturday’s New York Times, reporter Catie Edmondson concerned herself with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is evidently being dragooned into defending President Trump against impeachment the way he stuck up for Judge Brett Kavanaugh: “Prodded by the Right, Graham Joins the Impeachment Battle.” Judging by her choice of adjectives in these passages, Edmondson has not gotten over Kavanaugh’s success in earning a seat on the Supreme Court.
Before focusing on liberal media bias and their disdain for those in flyover country and not within their bubbles, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson and former FNC host Megyn Kelly dove Wednesday night into the ongoing train wreck that is Kelly’s other former employer (NBC News) with their alleged coverups of sexual misconduct.
It was just this time about a year ago that liberals in the media started to realize that Brett Kavanaugh would be confirmed to the Supreme Court. In fact, on October 5, 2018, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes realized, on-air, that such a thing would happen. MSNBC’s Ali Velshi broke into coverage to explain that Democrat Joe Manchin would vote yes: “We have breaking news now. Senator Joe Manchin, who did not want to be the deciding vote on this, has announced he will support.” Hayes sputtered, “He’s a yes?” The host then bowed his head in amazement.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A nominee for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court is about to be confirmed when suddenly, women start appearing out of nowhere to accuse him of engaging in unwilling sexual escapades with them. That scenario took place last year, but the bad feelings generated by participants in the incident has led to yet another book on the matter, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh, which received enthusiastic, wall-to-wall coverage throughout the mainstream media -- but nevertheless failed to sell well during its first week on sale.
The Education of Brett Kavanuagh's disparate treatment of the dueling testimonies of Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh was striking. Ford's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a “master class in authenticity and simplicity." The book downplayed the lack of specificity of Blasey’s account, laughably suggesting Blasey had her assault accusation narrowed down to “a conceivable location and time period." They event went after Ford's friend Leland Keyser for daring to doubt Ford's account: “But Keyser’s skepticism was structured on some erroneous or irrelevant tent poles...Keyser’s memory might be affected by her struggles with alcohol and other substances.”
