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:

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
