[See NewsBusters for more.] ABC, NBC, and CBS all gushed over the “history” making Supreme Court confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson on their respective Saturday morning programs. Of the three, only CBS put in minimal effort to show substantive criticisms of Jackson exist.

Studio anchor for CBS Saturday Morning Jeff Glor noted that Jackson will become the first black woman to serve on the Court before tossing the segment over to correspondent Christina Ruffini who introduced a report on Friday’s White House ceremony, “well, representation matters, that was the focus of the celebrations here at the White House yesterday, marketing Judge Jackson's ascension to the highest bench in America.”
