Shortly before the Monday Senate voted to confirm then-Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court in a 52-48 vote, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt whined about Republicans getting the nomination through without any votes from Democrats. And on ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir gaslit his viewers with a lie about how fast Barrett’s confirmation was.

Refusing to address Barrett with her rightful title of judge, Holt moaned about how the GOP-led Senate was able to confirm Barrett despite the childish antics of Democrats. “And the Senate tonight is expected to confirm Amy Coney Barrett as the next justice of the Supreme Court without any Democrats voting in her favor,” he whined.

NBC congressional correspondent Kasie Hunt touted how “every Democrat is expected to oppose her over concerns of abortion and particularly health care…” Adding: “But there's nothing they can do to stop the nomination. And if she is confirmed as expected with only Republican votes, it will be the most partisan confirmation in Supreme Court history.”
