MRC Still Melting Down Over Criticism Of Ginni Thomas
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media just can't stop defending Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his right-wing activist wife, Ginni, from any and all criticism. Kevin Tober lashed out at one critic in a Sept. 11 post:

On Monday night’s The ReidOut on MSNBC, noted racist Jason Johnson filled in for the vacationing Joy Reid and did his best to fill the air with as much bile as she does. It appeared as if he succeeded since he opened the latter half of the program by smearing Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife Ginni Thomas as the most “destructive force in the American jurisprudence in the last 30 years.” 

“I want this to be really clear. There has not been a more destructive force in the American jurisprudence in the last 30 years than Clarence Thomas' wife. They're the most destructive force in American jurisprudence,” Johnson howled.

He wasn’t done there. Johnson painted the power couple as comic book villains by smearing them as “a Voltron of evil.” 

The reason behind this latest character assassination was based on a hit piece from the left-wing rag Politico.

Johnson cried that some of the “key players involved included Texas billionaire Harlan Crow, Federalist Society Leonard Leo, and Trump political consultant Kellyanne Conway.”

“What Politico uncovered was that the justice's wife was essentially running a political organization that will push conservative ideas through the courts and into her husband's lap,” Johnson claimed.

Tober offered no evidence whatsover that Johnson is a "noted racist" or that Politico is a "left-wing rag"  -- to the contrary, Politico's owner operates numerous right-wing outlets. Tober also failed to identify anything false or misleading in the Politico piece he's criticizing, effectively putting the lie to his "hit piece" dismissal.

Despite Tober's factual deficiencies and failure to back up what he wrote, his post got rehashed in a Sept. 30 end-of-month summary by Geoffrey Dickens, again without bothering to substantiate the attacks.
