The meltdown has started. The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe vs. Wade and the journalists on NBC were already melting down over the “devastating” end of unrestricted abortion in America. Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd ranted that this means the Court is “rigged.”
A clearly unhappy Todd huffed, “Oh, I think the Supreme Court — there are no more black robes. I think the robes are red and blue.” Ignoring the history of activist liberals on the Court, he complained of the rise of a conservative Supreme Court: “It’s been an aggressive, obviously political movement on the right in particular on judges, and if you look at these back-to-back rulings on guns and abortion.”
The host then ripped the Court as “rigged.”
The trust in the Court and the erosion of that and making it be viewed as an extraordinarily partisan institution, we already have that in the House and the Senate. I think now particularly what happened this week, particularly how Donald Trump appointed the Supreme Court, how he went about it, in the whole Scalia thing, with McConnell, and all that, there’s a lot of people who believe this is a rigged Court. This Court’s make-up isn’t fair and square. It isn’t representative of where the country is and even was, and I think that is only going to add to cynicism.
For journalists, it’s rigged when things don’t go the way of the left.

Earlier, Yamiche Alcindor didn’t even bother to hide her personal unhappiness: “The NCAA is out with a statement calling this an egregious decision… And this decision is really seen as devastating to so many women across this country by — from people who are, of course, advocates of abortion rights.”
Devastating to women? Tell that to the scores of celebrating young women at the Supreme Court.
With no sense of irony, she stated that “lives are going to be put at risk” now that Roe has fallen:
I also sat down with Shannon Brewer, who is director of the Women’s Health Organization in Mississippi. That’s the clinic at the center of the decision. She told me that she believes women’s lives are going to be put at risk now because they’re going to be forced into unsafe abortions or they’re going to be forced to have children that they do not want to have and they have not planned for.
Hey, NBC: Lives were already at risk. The media meltdown has already begun. Stay tuned for more.
