MEDIA MALPRACTICE: McConnell Blasts ‘Fake News’ for Misleading the Public About ‘Court Packing’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.21.21

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell fumed about the media’s one-sided approach to “court packing” this week; saying the “fake news” complex is totally disinterested in presenting any opposing views about adding new justices to the Supreme Court.

“I’ve never been one to complain about fake news. But I want to start with the total frustration on the coverage that most of you have engaged with in regard to the issue of expanding the Supreme Court,” McConnell said at the weekly press conference.

“And yet I read story after story after story that do not mention that Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, two of the most important liberals in modern time, are opposed to court-packing,” McConnell said.

“Nine seems to be a good number. It’s been that way for a long time,” Ginsburg said in a  2019 interview. “I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court.”

“This new court-packing commission is not some serious pivot away from Democrats’ political attacks on the Court,” McConnell said earlier this month. “It’s just an attempt to clothe those attacks in fake legitimacy.”

“Some of you have covered national politics before. The rest of the world is laughing at us. It’s an embarrassment. It’s got to stop. You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over. It’s a great question, and I don’t blame you for asking,” said Biden.

“The moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that!” he added.
