- Pat, while mostconservatives are supporting
President Trump's pick,many liberals are voicing
their disapproval and that includes
some members of the media.
CBN's Jenna Browder hasthe story from Washington.
- [Jenna] From the Supreme Court--
- No justice!
- No peace!
- No family!
- No peace!
- [Jenna] To Trump Tower,protestors railed against
Brett Kavanaugh's nomination Monday night.
(loud shouting)- We should do everything
we can to fight back, to speak out,
to never give up, to never give in!
- And it wasn't just Democratsand liberal activists.
The media researchcenter is calling biased
on some members of the mainstream media.
- You had Nina Totenberg onNPR who was supposed to be
a correspondent for thatpublicly subsidized radio network
saying that she thoughtthat whoever Trump picked
was gonna lead to the endof the world as we know it.
You know, that's hyperbole.
That is way outside of therole of the correspondent.
- That's Kavanaugh on therecord saying there should be
no indictment of the sitting President.
- [Jenna] And on MSNBC thatnight, Rich Noy says there were
no conservative guests.
- From 8:00 until midnight,the only guests that had
a point of view wereliberal activist groups,
democratic elected politicians,
opponents of Brett Kavanaugh.
- [Jenna] Protests at theSupreme Court were so disruptive,
one FOX News anchor decidednot to do her show there.
- We did have it planned tohave our show out there live.
It got so volatile atpoints, that we ultimately
didn't feel like it wouldbe safe to do an hour
of live television out there.
- [Jenna] Noy says it hasn'talways been like this.
- We went back and lookedat how they covered
the nominations of liberal court nominees,
such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan,
you didn't have thistremendous labeling of them
as liberal or left wing.
- Of course people areconcerned about what this means
for a woman's right tochoose about Roe v. Wade.
- [Jenna] And he doesn'tsee it getting better
- It's a meltdown they haven't had
since the last meltdown andthey're gonna have another
meltdown in the coming days.
I mean, they had a meltdownjust two or three weeks ago
Now they're in meltdown over this.
- [Jenna] In Washington,Jenna Browder, CBN News.
