ABC and NBC broke in with special reports Thursday for the historic swearing in of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman to reach the high court, but the Disney-owned network went beyond the predictable accolades into the extremes as longtime Supreme Court reporter Terry Moran said Jackson will go down on the same plane as iconic Americans abolitionists Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth.
