Ignore Howley to question Jackson’s sympathy for ABC / NBC pedophiles

On the second day of the confirmation hearing for Biden Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, where Senator Josh Howley (R-MO) made many of his earlier remarks about how sympathetic he is to pedophiles, ABC’s World news tonight And NBC Nightly News Both ignored Hawley’s line of questioning during the oblique coverage of their hearings.

ABC Congress correspondent Rachel Scott started the report by shouting about how to protect Jackson. “His record against Republican accusers is soft on that crime.” He then broadcast the remarks of Vermont Senator Pat Leahy, who is not a Republican.

“What would you say to people who say you are lenient with crime or even law enforcement? Because you have accepted your responsibility as the protector of the people? Leah tickled Jackson and asked. “Anyone who has family members on patrol and on the fire line, I care deeply about public safety.” Jackson responds to softball.

Scott then reported that Jackson was “Pushing back against the allegations, he provided light punishment for those convicted of possessing child pornography.”

Jackson: As a mother and a judge who has had to deal with these cases, I thought nothing could be further from the truth. And in each case, when I’m dealing with something like this, it’s important for me to make sure that the children’s perspectives, the children’s voices, are represented in my sentences.

It was the culmination of coverage of Jackson’s Senate Republican interrogation on his record on child pornography and pedophilia.

Elsewhere, Scott broadcasts questions from Republican Senators Lindsay Graham, Ted Cruz and John Cornin about Jackson’s record of defending Guantanamo Bay terrorists and critical race theory.

On NBC Nightly NewsAnchor Lester Holt opens the nightly newscast that consists of hearings “Posture and political opportunism” And began to admire Jackson “Prevent attempts by both sides to drag him into a biased food fight.”

After shaking Holt, he handed the part to Peter Alexander, the White House’s chief correspondent, who also ignored the grilling of Jackson’s Howley (click to enlarge):

Peter Alexander: Dealing with the criticism that his punishment in the case of possession of child pornography is very humble.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson: As a mother and a judge who has had to deal with these cases, I thought nothing could be further from the truth.

Alexander: Republican Ted Cruz then highlighted a number of cases where Jackson’s sentence was less than recommended by prosecutors.

Senator Ted Cruz: Do you believe that children’s voices can be heard when 100% of your time is spent punishing people who possess child pornography much less than what prosecutors want?

Jackson: Yes, Senator, I do. Judges don’t just count guidelines and stop, judges have to consider the personal circumstances of the defendant because that’s a requirement of Congress.

Which both networks have ignored Howley is reading Jackson’s past comments About being sorry for an eighteen year old pedophile:

Senator Josh Howley: Let’s talk about this case. You also called this person an adult, tried as an adult. 18 years old. You told him that, as well as saying that you thought his victims were his peers. You further state that there is no reason to think you are a pedophile. And then you went on to say, again this is another reason you weren’t – you’re just going to give him three months. Because you judged that he is not a pedophile. And then you said, and this is something I really need your help to understand. Then you apologized to him. And I just have to tell you, I can’t figure it out completely. You told him it was a really difficult situation. I am grateful that your family is among the visitors. I am sorry for them and for you and for all of you for this pain. I feel terrible about the parallel consequences of this suffix. And then you go say, sex offenders are really avoided in our society.

The comments are shocking and Judge Jackson looks awful, which is probably why the networks didn’t want their viewers to listen to them.

This latest example of networks was made possible by ignoring Biden’s fierce Supreme Court-nominated GOP criticism. TD Ameritrade ABC and Liberty Mutual On NBC. Their information is attached.

Rachel Scott: Today on Capitol Hill, Judge Ketanji Brown is defending his record against the Jackson Republican accusation that he is soft on crime.

Senator Pat Leahy: What would you say to those who say you are a criminal or even anti-law enforcement? Why have you accepted your responsibility as the protector of the people?

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson: As someone whose family members are on patrol and on the line of fire, I am deeply concerned about the safety of the public. I know loved ones go out to protect and serve and fear not knowing if they will come home again.

SCOTT: He backtracked on allegations of handing out light sentences to people convicted of possessing child pornography.

Jackson: As a mother and a judge who has had to deal with these cases, I thought nothing could be further from the truth. And in each case, when I’m dealing with something like this, it’s important for me to make sure that the children’s perspectives, the children’s voices, are represented in my sentences.

SCOTT: Republicans are pressuring Jackson. The first former public defender to be nominated by the High Court for his defense against suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay.

Senator Lindsay Graham: Have you ever, in one of your habeas corpus, accused the government of acting as a war criminal or holding detainees?

Jackson: I .. I ..

Graham: Detaining prisoners – our government that we were acting as war criminals?

Jackson: Senator, I don’t remember that allegation.

Senator John Cornin: Why in the world would you call Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and George W. Bush war criminals in legal cases? It seems out of character for you.

Jackson: Well, Senator, I don’t remember that particular reference and I was representing my client and making arguments.

SCOTT: In the case in question, Jackson did not actually call the American government a “war criminal.” He wrote that the alleged “torture and other inhumane treatment” at Guantanamo Bay constituted “war crimes and / or crimes against humanity.”

SCOTT: Republican Senator Ted Cruz is then grilling Jackson, the first black woman nominated by the High Court, to critique the racial theory.

Senator Ted Cruz: It sees every conflict as a racial conflict. Do you think that this is the right way to look at society in the world we live in?

Jackson: Senator, I don’t think so, but I’ve never studied critical race theory, and I’ve never used it.

SCOTT: Cruz then reads from a children’s book called “Antiracist Baby” taught at Jackson’s teenage school, where the judges sit on the board.

Cruz: Do you agree with this book that children are being taught that children are racist?

JACKSON: Senator: I don’t believe any child should be treated as racist or even worthless or even inferior.

Scott: Cruz asks Jackson about one children’s book after another. The judge was upset.

Jackson: Senator, I haven’t reviewed any of those books, none of those ideas. They do not come to my work as a judge, which I have come here to resolve with respect.

SCOTT: When it comes to abortion, Jackson is making his position clear.

Jackson: Rowe and Casey are the Supreme Court’s ruling on a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy.

Lester Holt: Good evening, the sense of history in the room was clear, even if the process itself follows the path of Washington, known for its posture and political opportunism. Questioning the committee, praising Democrats, grilling by tired Republicans, and often resisting attempts by both sides to drag him into a biased food fight, the 51-year-old wife and mother seemed ready to defend what was coming, defending his judicial philosophy. Stay in my lane, he described it in part, on the grounds that he was lenient with the offense, including the light punishment for convicts in child pornography cases, could not be more than the truth he said. Flash of emotion. And when asked about abortion, Judge Jackson called the Roe V Wade Disposal Act.
