As pro-abortion radicals rioted and attacked pro-lifers in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade, the network newscasts mostly looked the other way. They offered scant coverage and repeatedly insisted that the last several days have been “mostly” or “largely” peaceful. On Monday’s CBS Evening News, Jan Crawford insisted, “Largely peaceful, there were scattered acts of vandalism and another attack on an anti-abortion pregnancy center like this one in Virginia.” On the same day’s CBS Mornings, she echoed, “Now, over the weekend the protests remained largely peaceful.” 

As pro-abortion radicals rioted and attacked pro-lifers in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade, the network newscasts mostly looked the other way. They offered scant coverage and repeatedly insisted that the last several days have been “mostly” or “largely” peaceful. Fox News covered it more in depth. 

The network morning shows sounded the alarm on Saturday, warning of the “shockwaves” and “outrage” at the “newly activist conservative” Supreme Court majority that overturned Roe vs. Wade. Over on CBS Saturday Morning, co-host Dana Jacobson saw “shockwaves” and worried about the “Court’s five most conservative justices.” 

The network morning shows sounded the alarm on Saturday, warning of the “shockwaves” and “outrage” at the “newly activist conservative” Supreme Court majority that overturned Roe vs. Wade. On Friday, Terry Moran suddenly discovered the concept of judicial activism, attacking the conservatives as “judges in politicians’ robes.” On Saturday's Good Morning America he spoke of “newly emboldened activist conservative majority.” Moran continued his worried tone: “This morning, shockwaves across the country. In a sweeping ruling that overturned a half a century of precedents, five justices ended the right of American women to choose abortion under the Constitution.”

All three morning shows on Saturday erupted at Friday’s historic overturning of Roe vs. Wade, donating much coverage to the “shockwaves” sent across the country. But it was NBC that highlighted the ugliest sentiment, lingering on a pro-abortion protest poster reading: “[Clarence] Thomas is a treasonous turd.”  

ABC News journalist Terry Moran has discovered judicial activism. Minutes after the overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday, he derided conservative “judges in politicians’ robes.” Just in time for a ruling the left hates, Moran declared the era of the Supreme Court being “legitimate” is now over. Breaking in to live coverage after Roe fell, Moran used swing vote John Roberts as a proxy for his own outrage: “[Roberts] says the Court is too full of certainty on this issue and he would wait for the next case to come. He's lost control of this Court, but it is significant that a justice as conservative as John Roberts is looks at what his conservative colleagues did and says, that's judicial activism.” 

Chuck Todd is unraveling before the eyes of the nation. The Meet the Press host on Friday reacted to the overturning of Roe by comparing it to the ongoing “shattering” of democracy in America and warned conservative politicians about the “tinder box” they have created. He also lashed out at Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, calling their appointments “unfair” and “out of bounds.”

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. 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.” 

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.”
