It is Time The Washington Publish Comes Clear On Their Thomas Assaults


Again there within the stone age of final month, right here was the headline on a Washington Publish column from affiliate editor and columnist Ruth Marcus: 

It’s time for Clarence Thomas to return clear 

On this jewel Marcus writes: 

Justice Clarence Thomas has inflicted incalculable injury on the Supreme Courtroom — injury that requires motion by Congress and the chief justice to strengthen ethics guidelines.

In two different columns Marcus zeroes in on Justice Thomas as a result of he had the nerve – the nerve! – to just accept “luxurious journey” from his good friend Harlan Crow. Marcus isn’t alone, both.

On Friday, The Publish was headlining a narrative about longtime conservative judicial activist Leonard Leo directing a cost for companies to fellow conservative activist Virginia Thomas, Clarence’s spouse. 

Beneath this lede story on Friday there have been – rely ’em – 9 (!!!) extra ethics tales targeted on Justice Thomas. 

However who, it ought to be requested, appears to have mysteriously escaped Marcus’s and The Washington Publish’s consideration?

Here’s a headline from one other Publish – that may be the New York Publish. 

Justice Sonia Sotomayor didn’t recuse herself from circumstances involving writer that paid her $3M: report 

The New York Publish story reported:  

Supreme Courtroom Justice Sonia Sotomayor didn’t recuse herself from a number of circumstances involving a ebook writer –  Penguin Random Home – which paid her greater than $3 million since 2010, in line with a report.

A Google seek for protection of Justice Sotomayor’s $3 million pay day from a writer who had circumstances earlier than the Courtroom reveals – surprising I do know – not a peep from Marcus or The Washington Publish.

Uh-oh.

Then there’s one other lacking information story from each The Washington Publish and The New York Instances. Right here’s the headline in The New York Publish

FBI tip that allegedly places Biden at heart of ‘felony scheme’ sends sleuths around the globe

The Washington Examiner model of the identical whistleblower story was this headline on a narrative by ace journalist Quin Hillyer: 

Whistleblower’s claims towards Biden could possibly be greatest US scandal ever

Quin opens his reporting this fashion: 

OK, this actually ought to be straightforward: Each information outlet within the nation, each regulation enforcement company with jurisdiction, each applicable congressional committee, and the total weight of the FBI ought to be aggressively probing the Biden household’s monetary information.

Home Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) say a reputable whistleblower alleges that the FBI and Justice Division have a doc with a ‘exact description’ of a ‘felony scheme‘ between a international nationwide and then-Vice President Joe Biden involving cost of cash for coverage selections.

So. What do the 2 tales – on the floor two utterly completely different tales – have in widespread?

Reply? If a narrative is a unfavourable on a liberal – be it a liberal Supreme Courtroom Justice or the present liberal President of america – then the liberal media will simply ignore it. Bury it.

Supreme Courtroom ethics? The topic should be the black conservative Justice Thomas, not the “clever Latina” liberal Justice Sotomayor and her $3 million payout from a writer on whose “a number of circumstances” she had sat as a Justice.

A whistleblower who accuses the sitting liberal president of an enormous bribery scheme benefitting himself and his household when he was vice chairman? Yawn. Who cares. Nothing price reporting right here, simply transfer alongside. 

It ought to come as no shock, then, that tens of millions of People see the assaults on Justice Thomas as simply extra of the systemic racism of the American Left that rears its head anytime the story revolves round a conservative black man or girl. 

There’s one customary for Clarence Thomas, one other customary altogether for Sonia Sotomayor.

Ditto the liberal media and its lack of protection of the rising – and probably large – bribery scandal surrounding Joe Biden. Nothing to see there, simply transfer alongside.

The onerous core reality right here is that the Washington Publish’s protection of Justice Thomas and Virginia Thomas reeks of a left wing vendetta towards a conservative Justice. To quote the paper’s lack of protection of Justice Sotomayor’s can be dismissed as “whataboutism.”  

Newsflash? The time period “whataboutism” is liberal-speak for “double customary.”

All of which is to say the assaults on Justice Thomas by The Washington Publish, columnist Marcus and others are nothing greater than the newest try at a “high-tech lynching” of a robust and persuasive conservative black man.

And the studious liberal media silence concerning the information of a whistleblower pulling again the curtain on Joe Biden and an accused and intensive bribery scandal that traded insurance policies for {dollars} will equally wind up solely damaging the credibility of the mainstream media much more than its already self-inflicted wounds.

Can the liberal media keep away from extra injury to their credibility?  Possibly – if they arrive clear concerning the recreation they’re enjoying. Will they? Don’t wait up.
