Capehart Misquotes Brooks on PBS: Ketanji Is ‘Not Some Radical,’ She’s ‘Mainstream’!

Of course, there are the PBS NewsHourI was thrilled by President Biden’s Friday night nomination of radical Judge Ketanji brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. David Brooks touted how Jackson brings “a new lived set of experiences. It can’t help but have a humanizing aspect.” He put her in the mainstream….of the Democrats. It was that simple.MightYou are correct but Democrats tend to be far left.

BROOKS: There are many different rating systems which rate judges according to their ideological views. She is a solid candidate for the Democratic nominations. She was slightly ahead of Elena Kagan in one of the rating systems that I reviewed. One system put her slightly to the right. However Her candidacy is very mainstream for a Democratic candidate.

She’s replacing the Democratic nominee so it won’t alter the ideological balance. Marcia Clark stated earlier that this was evident. Increase the aperture of your eyes.

Jonathan Capehart made it seem like Brett Kavanaugh was a smear, and told Republicans that they should behave better.

CAPEHART (I think): If Republicans keep to the substance criticisms of Judge Jackson, whether her record, rulings or cases are, then they’ll be okay. They will be criticized if they go too far. Senator Kennedy, Louisiana said that he wanted the president to choose someone capable of distinguishing between a J. They should expect harsh criticism if they choose to go that way.

That’s a funny standard, to judge the nominee before there is a nominee. After all, Capehart said whoever it was, she would be “brilliant” because she was black and had to overcome all the racism. Brooks was then misquoted by Capehart:

Also, Republican leaders who claim to be Republican leaders should be ready to condemn them. There is no doubt that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has the qualifications to serve on the Court. David stated that David is not a radical but rather, he said, is part of the mainstream American political thought.

PBS did not discuss the ideology of Judge Xavier in two segments. Instead, they talked about “widening human aperture”. But when it came up, PBS correspondent Lisa Desjardins dismissed it. Marcia Coyle from Liberal Media was asked to answer her question. National Law Journal: “Marcia. Now that Judge Jackson has been nominated, we are also getting an inkling of possible Republican criticisms ahead. This is from Senator McConnell, today’s Republican leader in the Senate. He declared that Jackson is the pick of dark money and far-left groups. Now, This is a political statement, and not a substantive one..”

Coyle at the very least responded “Certainly Democrats accused Republican nominees be supported by dark money organizations.”

PBS NewsHour This is partly thanks to…you and your taxes. Also, by Fidelity.
