The 1 February 2017 edition of CBS This Morning turned to liberal attorney David Boies for his take on President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. However, the newscast failed to provide balance by bringing on a conservative legal expert. Boies twice asserted that Gorsuch was "not in...the mainstream of judicial thought."  He also lamented that Senate Republicans blocked a vote on Merrick Garland, President Obama's final nomination to the Court: "I thought it was unfortunate that he wasn't confirmed." Anchor Norah O'Donnell later gushed over the "so smart" guest.
