Monday was the first day of the Supreme Court’s new session and the liberal media were freaking out over the right to life. “CBS and NBC both attempted to stir their viewers into sharing their fright as they warned that abortions could be outlawed and people could carry a firearm for self-defense outside the home,” one report noted.
Life News reports:
“Tonight, the Supreme Court began its new term, one that could be the most consequential in a generation, with abortion rights topping the agenda,” announced CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell at the top of the segment as legal correspondent Jan Crawford delivered the story.
Both networks invoked the same fearmongering tactic of declaring “what’s at stake” this session with the conservative majority:
“With Justice Amy Coney Barrett replacing liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, abortion opponents are hoping that’s exactly what happens,” Crawford said after commiserating with an abortion provider in Jackson, Mississippi.
Over on NBC Nightly News, Justice correspondent Pete Williams also wanted to fret about “what’s at stake.” “In a dramatic show of what’s at stake, demonstrators took to the streets nationwide over the weekend, most of them urging the Supreme Court and Congress to protect existing abortion rights,” he said.
Williams noted, “The court will also decide whether the Second Amendment provides a right to carry a gun outside the house, and whether states can block giving public tuition money to schools offering religious education.”
