U.S. Supreme Court
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.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the show was fixated on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commenting last night that he would work to fill a hypothetical U.S. Supreme Court vacancy if one occurred in 2020, as hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue repeatedly across all three hours of the show. Additionally, no conservative commentators were included in the panel discussions even while several liberal contributors including Joe Lockhart, John Avlon, and Catherine Rampell were allowed to give their negative commentary against McConnell.
On Wednesday's Full Frontal show on TBS, late-night "comedian" Samantha Bee began what is allegedly a comedy show by railing against recent efforts to curtail abortion, including both the passage of heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies, and the recently released film Unplanned recounting a former Planned Parenthood employee who turned pro-life.
On Friday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe was relieved by the Supreme Court’s decision to temporarily block a Louisiana law that would require abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. Host Joe Scarborough hailed Chief Justice John Roberts for siding with liberals to impose a stay on the policy until a final ruling was handed down, declaring the move maintained the “integrity” of the high court.
On Friday, all three network morning shows eagerly touted the Supreme Court temporarily blocking a Louisiana law set to go into effect that would require abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. The same hosts and correspondents that breathlessly hyped the “big story” completely ignored an extreme late-term abortion law being passed in New York State just two weeks ago.
Feminist activists have only one goal this year: to make sure abortions in all forms stay legal. As the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear a case that could end legislation requiring aborted fetuses to be buried as human beings, feminists are panicking.
CNN played a clip of Seth Meyers, from his Late Night show on NBC, saying: "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is recovering in the hospital after she fell in her office and fractured three ribs. Wow: if you had told me a Supreme Court Justice fell over and broke some ribs, I would have bet on the new guy." Late Night then cut to a clip of Kavanaugh saying "I like beer."
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could determine the status of social media companies as state actors. On October 12, the court accepted Manhattan Community Access Corp v. Halleck, a case where two producers sued the Manhattan Neighborhood Network for suspending them for expressing critical views.
The confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a major political loss for the left-wing mob. As expected, all sorts of wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued, especially from Hollywood liberals who have apparently made it their life’s calling to engage in the hysteria. Many of them took to social media to vent their frustration, and their status updates were extreme to say the least.
George Stephanopoulos, who attempted to destroy sexual abuse accusers of Bill Clinton, is worried about people not believing the accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The former Clinton White House operative turned Good Morning America co-host on Tuesday fretted, “... To vote for Kavanaugh, you’re going to have to, at some level, be saying, ‘She’s not telling the truth.’”
In a softball exclusive interview with liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday, NBC Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie feared that “our legal system, our constitutional system” was “under pressure” during the Trump administration and urged the jurist to condemn that supposed threat to democracy.
In light of new conservative Supreme Court nominations, the left has been in abject fear over any possible restriction on abortion, and has been lashing out. Their new target is the Hollywood production of Roe v. Wade. And although director Nick Loeb has remained adamant that things are going smoothly and that he has been maintaining the cast and production levels he had originally planned to have, the scathing “fake news” reports have been circling his project.
