Skip to comments.Smear: L.A. Times Lies About Cornynís Comments on Sotomayor
Posted on 05/31/2009 5:46:03 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Today the Los Angeles Times lies to its readers about Sen. John Cornyns statements on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Heres what the L.A. Times says:
Only days earlier, Cornyn said in a radio interview that it was terrible for conservatives to be attacking Sotomayor as a racist. But today, the senator did not reiterate those sentiments and pledged that he and other Republican lawmakers would probe deeply into Sotomayors past comments and rulings to see if her heritage colors her ability to make fair decisions.
The hell he did. Yes, he said Republicans would closely examine her record. But he never said that Republicans would seek to learn whether her heritage would affect her ability to be a fair judge. In essence, the paper is saying, Republicans are concerned that Sotomayor might be a poor judge because she is a Latina. That is an outrageous distortion of Cornyns comments.
Rather than focusing on Sotomayors ethnicity, Cornyn focused on Sotomayors statements and rulings. Cornyn said Republicans were concerned by Sotomayors ruling in the New Haven firefighters case, and her comments about how she would be a better judge because of her Latina heritage. The focus was on her actions and words, not on her heritage.

That is an everyday occurrence out here.
She is La Raza, La Raza.
We do NOT have a MEDIA anymore. We have the OBAMA BRIGADE. AMERICAN JOURNALISM DIED IN 2008. May they RIH and Conservatives Rise up and buy out AOL and other media outlets that are going under.
GOOD! This is the way they SHOULD handle it. The media will play it up that a “No vote” is discriminatory, just like they did in the November election with Obama. Anyone who didn't vote for him was a racist. I was very disappointed in some of the early comments attributed to Sen. Cornyn. I've always thought highly of him, but to flat say there wouldn't be a filibuster disappointed me.
We'll have to see how this plays out and we will have to put as much pressure on the senate as we can.
Boy, isn’t that the truth! After listening to the “Republicans” regarding the issue, I have come away thinking that she did nothing wrong at all...heh. Now I know that she is actually “racist” (Only by listening to several other news media - C-Span is great) in attitude and governance...Not a problem though, the Democrats will pull her through...
Long live our beloved (liberal - no contests, absolutely no minority defensive attitudes - well, they are almost Democrat anyway) Republicans!... May they be in minority power forever!
LAT might have lied, but Cornyn is fast becoming a bona fide RINO.
Here is the e-mail address for the sake of sh!t LA Slimes reported who made this blatant lie: firstname.lastname@example.org
sake = sack sheesh
One night this week, Roland Martin, subbing for Campbell Brown on CNN asked a rep from a Hispanic group:
“ What will the Hispanic community do
when Republicans go after her ( Sotomayor ) because of her ethnic background ?”
And then the panel had a discussion about this-as if it was factual.
No one disputed the premise.
Didn’t Cornyn recently slam people for listening to Rush’s criticism of Sotomeyer because Rush is an unelected official??
and let’s not forget Cornyn’s support of Crist over Rubio. That’s an unforgivable leap to RINOhood right there!!
He was on the Texas Supreme Court.
I told him that if Rush Limbaugh had all this info on her, how is it possible he doesn’t?
Then, there are those who know exactly how we feel and think and don't give a *%&@ (Pelosi, Frank, Schumer, Dodd, etc.). All they care about is money, power, and being reelected.
