[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN’s John Berman talked to retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on Tuesday and somehow never managed to call him a liberal, despite evidently far-left positions. The New Day co-host instead asked, “Are you still a Republican?” Stevens, who just turned 99 and retired in 2010, is a vocal supporter of gun control, abortion rights, and still complains about the Bush vs. Gore case. Yet despite all this, Berman failed to label the ex-judge’s ideology. The CNN journalist explained Stevens’s annoyance at losses on the courts:  “He feels that most strongly on issues surrounding guns and the 2008 Heller decision which recognized an individual's right to bear arms.”
