FLASHBACK: Media Advocated for Obama’s Supreme Court Picks

If the liberal media cover the Neil Gorsuch hearings the same way they handled Barack Obama’s choices for the Supreme Court, they will do everything they can to pave the way to an easy confirmation.

When they weren’t singing the praises of their backgrounds, or even comedic stylings, liberal reporters and anchors tried to downplay the leftist leaning of Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Merrick Garland. 
NPR’s Nina Totenberg swooned over Kagan’s “spectacularly successful” academic background while ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos was taken with her sense of humor “If this Supreme Court thing doesn’t work out, she’s got another career in stand-up.” The only issue seemed to be Kagan’s ideology, as NBC’s Peter Alexander brought up the concern that Kagan  “may not be liberal enough.” Will any of these reporters worry that Gorsuch “may not be conservative enough?”
Even though Merrick Garland was never confirmed, he was initially deemed the “perfect pick” by NBC’s Chuck Todd because the Republicans would have a tough time denying the judge a hearing because he was such a political “moderate,” as Lester Holt and ABC’s Terry Moran labeled him. 

According to Katie Couric, Sotomayor’s ideology was even tougher to pin down, as the then-CBS anchor laughably claimed: “Pundits usually label judges as either liberal or conservative, but that won’t be easy with Judge Sotomayor.” 
The following is a collection of some the most egregious examples of liberal reporters and anchors doing their best to pave the way for Obama’s nominees:

ALERT ALERT

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
