CNN’s spent the last several years waging war to censor and cancel Fox News.
But CNN got some bad news.
And now CNN owes Fox News a big apology after this Supreme Court lie blew up in CNN’s face.
Left-wing activist Nina Totenberg published a story on NPR claiming that liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor heard oral arguments remotely because conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch refused to wear a mask.
Now, though, the situation had changed with the omicron surge, and according to court sources, Sotomayor did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form asked the other justices to mask up.
They all did. Except Gorsuch, who, as it happens, sits next to Sotomayor on the bench. His continued refusal since then has also meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justices’ weekly conference in person, joining instead by telephone.
Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream immediately disputed Totenberg’s reporting telling viewers that a source told her that neither Sotomayor nor Roberts asked Gorsuch or other judges to wear a mask.
“I am told that is not accurate. A source at the Supreme Court says there’s been no blanket admonition or request from Chief Justice Roberts that the other justices begin wearing masks to arguments. The source further stated Justice Sotomayor did not make any such request to Justice Gorsuch. I’m told, given that fact, there was also no refusal by Justice Gorsuch. The justices are all vaccinated and boosted, and they do test before taking the bench for arguments,” Bream stated.
In that night’s so-called “Reliable Sources” newsletter, CNN left-wing entertainer Oliver Darcy claimed Totenberg was a “well-sourced” reporter and that Bream reported alternative facts.
Darcy also claimed a CNN reporter “matched” Totenberg’s reporting.
“NPR’s incredibly well-sourced Supreme Court correspondent Nina Totenberg published a scoop on Tuesday about Justice Sonia Sotomayor attending SCOTUS conferences remotely because Justice Neil Gorsuch keeps refusing to wear a mask. She cited multiple sources. Later in the day, Fox’s Shannon Bream cited her own source and disputed NPR’s story. In essence, Bream was absolving Gorsuch. So the NPR audience comes away believing one thing and the Fox audience comes away believing the opposite. CNN’s Ariane de Vogue, meantime, matched key parts of NPR’s reporting,” Darcy wrote.
The story was – of course – a lie.
CNN and NPR fabricated more fake news to attack a conservative.
The Supreme Court issued a rare on the record statement from Justices Gorsuch and Sotomayor denying that Sotomayor ever asked Gorsuch to wear a mask.
“Reporting that Justice Sotomayor asked Justice Gorsuch to wear a mask surprised us. It is false. While we may sometimes disagree about the law, we are warm colleagues and friends,” the Supreme Court statement read.
Justice Roberts followed up with another statement categorically denying that he pressed Gorsuch on wearing a mask.
“I did not request Justice Gorsuch or any other Justice to wear a mask on the bench,” Justice Roberts’ statement read.
The corporate media is awash in so-called “disinformation” units that spend their days claiming arguments Republicans put forth are false, misleading or lacking context because they contradict the Democrat Party’s narrative on any given day.
But as usual the biggest source of misinformation is the corporate media.
