MRC Baselessly Claims Kagan Engaged In 'Advocacy' for Health Care Reform
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Reserarch Center's Kyle Drennen complains in an Nov. 15 NewsBusters post:

While NBC, ABC, and CBS all reported on the Supreme Court's decision Monday to rule on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, none of the coverage made any mention of calls for liberal Justice Elena Kagan to recuse herself from the case due to her advocacy for the legislation as Obama's solicitor general.

Drennen offers no evidence that Kagan engaged in "advocacy for the legislation." Nor did he mention that the MRC, through editor in chief Terry Jeffrey, has been desperately trying -- and failing miserably -- to prove that Kagan was somehow involved.

Further, Drennen made no reference to claims that Supreme Court Justice should recuse due to his wife's advocacy work against health care reform.

All Drennen does is throw an unsupported assertion of "advocacy." That's "media criticism"?
