PBS ‘News Judgment’: Upside-Down Alito Flag Bigger Than Potential Kavanaugh Assassin

On Friday’s PBS NewsHour, the Week in Review segment dove into the New York Times “scoop” that the flag flew upside down for a few days in January 2021 outside the home of Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito. This was Big News? Two years ago, when a man showed up outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house intending to assassinate him, the NewsHour didn’t find that worthy on Friday June 10, 2022.

Of course, the Big News then was slobbering over the Pelosi-picked January 6 Committee, just as this Alito story is a January 6 echo. 

CAPEHART: This is outrageous. And it’s outrageous because this is a Supreme Court justice who, at the time that flag was flown, was sitting in judgment of a particular case involving the — still, at that point, the sitting president.

The other thing is, could you imagine what would have happened if that flag was flying like that on the property of Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Ketanji Brown Jackson, someone from the liberal wing on the bench of the Supreme Court? They would have been impeached.

And so the idea that we’re supposed to accept Justice Alito’s rationale here that, oh, my wife did it, it’s unacceptable. And I think it just feeds into the erosion of the trust and the standing of the Supreme Court with the American public.

Capehart and PBS and all their leftist media colleagues are actively trying to erode trust in the Supreme Court, because they’re not in charge of it right now.

Washington Free Beacon editor Eliana Johnson subbed in for David Brooks, which means you get an actual conservative viewpoint for a change.

JOHNSON: I don’t think that the good liberal readers of The New York Times or viewers of this network would be willing to argue with a straight face that the views of a woman — and she has not come out to say that she didn’t do this — are derivative of her husband’s views.

My husband has nothing to do with the things I say on this network, and you can’t have it both ways. You cannot say that women are strong and should be out and employed and have their own views and that their husbands are responsible for everything they then go and do.

Capehart then repeated his point: “And if that had happened, again, to RBG, they would be raining thunder calling for her resignation. And I wouldn’t — I would have a hard time arguing with them.”

Earlier, Capehart made snippy points against Trump as he and the president agreed to debates: “Even though Donald Trump did agree to these two debates, I will believe it when I see it. I don’t think he actually shows up.”

When anchor Geoff Bennett asked why Trump would lower expectations of Biden’s debating skills at this point, Capehart hissed: “But we’re talking about Donald Trump, who never misses an opportunity to belittle someone he’s afraid of, but just to belittle anyone.”
