July 1st, 2021 11:53 PM

Thursday was a less-than-stellar day for immature and venomous charlatans like MSNBC’s ReidOut host Joy Reid due to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Arizona’s election integrity laws, so it was only natural Reid and a cast of characters melted down over the ruling as a “racist” and “violent blow against democracy” that proved the centrality of “the Big Lie...to Republican…

April 7th, 2021 10:45 PM

The New York Times invariably hails liberal Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage, abortion, and opposing big money in politics.

NYT Hits ‘Say Nothing’ Kavanaugh, But Gentle on Scripted Liberal Noms

September 9th, 2018 9:03 PM

A New Court Nominee, But TV News Employs Same Old Biased Script

July 11th, 2018 10:21 AM
Since the 1980s, the well-worn liberal playbook is to claim that Republican appointees to the Supreme Court should be voted down as ideologues who are outside the judicial mainstream. The establishment media aids this tactic by often tagging GOP nominees as “conservative,” while ignoring — or even disputing — the liberal bent of Democratic nominees to the Court. True to form, ABC, CBS and NBC’s…
