<p>The Big Three networks&#39; morning newscasts on 31 January 2017 forwarded the same language about two of President Trump&#39;s possible Supreme Court picks. On <em>CBS This Morning</em>, Jan Crawford labeled Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman &quot;solid conservatives.&quot; ABC&#39;s George Stephanopoulos used the same term on <em>GMA</em>, and played up that &quot;either one of these finalists could be picked by any Republican president &mdash; both relatively young white men...solid conservatives.&quot; NBC&#39;s Peter Alexander also zeroed on in the race of the potential nominees on <em>Today</em>: &quot;The President&#39;s decision narrowed down to two appeals court judges, both white men.&quot;</p>
