President Trump planned, announced his candidacy for the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday evening, but the mainstream media harp on the fact that the choice is very conservative and regardless of the selection according to a study of the media coverage of the last six nominees.
From the moment that Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his resignation last month, media members, stoking the fear that Trump the substitute would prohibit abortions and turn America into a nation that shuns the liberal ideology. The Hollywood elite is now involved, too, with the usual anti-Trump suspects immediately enter the crisis mode.
Now that Trump is only a few hours away is the historic decision, rich Noyes, senior editor at Media Research Center, wrote that it is “easy to predict, the liberal media spin” regardless of who chooses the trump.

Supreme control: the Democrats melt down over unnamed nominated
CBN chief political correspondent David Brody is responding to the political attacks on a candidate to replace retired judge Kennedy.
“As with all of the current Republican candidates, the Reporter repeatedly call ‘conservative’, which is nice and the strengthening of the Democrats ” strategy to paint them as outside the ‘mainstream,'” he wrote.
Noyes pointed out that Neil from gorsuch, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts were all brands-as a conservative – but not just a regular conservative. Adjectives like “predictable,” ” very,” “deep” and “staunch” were usually tacked on the label. He added that there is nothing wrong with calling a conservative a conservative, pointed out, however, that the liberal candidates usually get fancy adjectives, when it is described.
Last year, as from gorsuch has been tapped to serve carried to the Supreme court, the MRC, a study, which proved that Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Merrick Garland were rarely referred to as a “liberal” when the media about their nominations. ABC and NBC have not describe with the term “liberal” to you at all during the first 24 hours after their respective nominations, according to the MRC.
Noyes discovered that democratic candidates were not often described as “centrist” or “moderate”, while the conservatives will get the same advantage. Republican candidates have never been described as a “centrist” or “moderate”,” he wrote.
The MRC found that Roberts, Alito, and from gorsuch were as “conservative” 36 times on ABC, CBS and NBC within 24 hours after the nomination, while Sotomayor, Kagan and Garland were only with the label “liberal” seven times in total, with the same parameters.
Simply put, the media members actually want to know the audience when a candidate is conservative, but not particularly care, in the discussion on a liberal – at least when it comes to the final six nominees.
Trump said on Sunday he would nominate “close to the decision” about who he is, to replace the retiring Kennedy. Most of the speculation is that one of the four court of appeal judges — Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman – is the selection. With the conservative label as an insult has already begun, when experts break down the candidates.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid, said on Sunday that the decision could lead to the “erosion” of the all of the employees and the right to vote to affirmative action. In the discussion of the candidates, Reid said that Barrett is one of to open a “very, very conservative Catholic sect”, a panel discussion, a guest to say their religious group is “cult-like” tendencies.
CNN’s “New day”, the candidate on Monday morning, and Barrett was again awarded as “very conservative,” the this time, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin – who has not a different opinion about the other three candidates.
“The other three, which I think all have very good chances to be nominated. I think the similarities are much greater than their differences. They are all very conservative,” said Toobin.
