CBS Wants Viewers to Be Terrified of SCOTUS 'Dominated By Conservatives'


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

The theme of Monday’s CBS Evening News was ‘be afraid, be afraid of conservatives on the Supreme Court.’ And they weren’t subtle about it. It was the common thread throughout their four back-to-back segments about the battle to fill the vacant seat once held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In fact, stoking fear of conservatives was how anchor Norah O’Donnell kicked off the program with in the opening teases:

Tonight, we're here at the Supreme Court. President Trump says he’ll name his nominee by the end of the week as the nation remembers Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Tributes pour in for the liberal icon as the President says he wants his pick confirmed before Election Day on November 3. Tonight, the two women who are frontrunners and how they could cement conservative control of the nation's highest court for a generation.

There was no such ideological fear mongering and bigotry when President Obama tried to install a liberal in 2016 with Judge Merrick Garland. At the time, the media falsely claimed he was a moderate.

But as O’Donnell stood in front of the Supreme Court, she warned viewers that “what happens in the coming weeks will have sweeping consequences for the court and the country, possibly cementing a conservative majority for decades.”
