Kevin: Thomas Vs. Elana Kagan: In 1987 and in 1991 when Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas were respectively nominated to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States, both men were utterly destroyed by the press. In the case of Bork they were successful in preventing his nomination, not so in the case of Thomas. It was so bad for Robert Bork that a verb was made of his name. After the press and Democrats succeeded in ruining his career and reputation the term “Borked” gained cache. On the other hand, when Elana Kagan was nominated by Obama to serve on the highest court in the land, the media went out of its way to ignore key factors in her career in order to facilitate her ascension to the court. Just for one for instance, when running as McCain’s VP, Sarah Palin the media reported that she engaged in “book banning” when she was mayor of Wasilla. But Elana Kagan actually ruled that book banning was OK and the media ignored the story during her confirmation hearings. Liberal media bias 101.
