Reality Check Reality
Topic: Media Research Center
A Nov. 1 Media Research Center "Media Reality Check" needs a little reality check itself, failing to tell the entire story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Claiming that Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's career "is not that of an activist," Rich Noyes claims that Ginsburg "had solid activist credentials as director of the Women's Rights Project for the ACLU, but reporters were loath to assign her a liberal label." But Noyes fails to mention that for the 13 years immediately preceding her nomination, Ginsburg was a member of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where she compiled a moderate record. In fact, examinations of voting records have found that she frequently voted with fellow conservative judges such as Robert Bork, Kenneth Starr and Laurence Silberman.
