Perplexed Totenberg: Gorsuch ‘Respected,’ Yet Seems ‘Very Conservative’


<p>[See <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters</a> for more.] Nina Totenberg is very confused. The hard-left NPR journalist on Tuesday admitted that Judge Neil Gorsuch is &ldquo;respected,&rdquo; yet he&rsquo;s also somehow &ldquo;very conservative.&rdquo; The correspondent has a long history of calling everyone, from Sonia Sotomayor to John Roberts, some variation of &ldquo;conservative.&rdquo; Appearing on MSNBC, Brian Williams asked Totenberg to project the Supreme Court nominee&rsquo;s ideology. At first, she hedged, saying, &ldquo;I actually don&rsquo;t know.&rdquo; Then Totenberg shared her conundrum: &ldquo;If you look at his society, so to speak, his mother, his friends, how he got on this list, you&#39;d have to say that he&#39;s going to be a very, very conservative judge, but he is a very well respected judge.&rdquo; Conservative and respected? Hard to believe!</p>
