Here’s the Problem With the New Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary

What’s going on?

“Notorious RBG” is coming to a theater near you. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the subject of a new documentary called “RBG” that comes from CNN Films, the movie division of CNN. The film got a lot of buzz after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where Ginsburg herself talked about how much she liked the doc.

Glenn’s take:

Why is CNN allowing itself to be affiliated with this partisan documentary when it’s supposed to be an objective source of news? Glenn wondered if a similar film about Justice Neil Gorsuch would be as well-received if Fox News decided to make one.

“They would be slammed by the left as total partisan propaganda,” Glenn said. “Remember CNN, ‘facts first’? ‘Apples are apples’ and all of that stuff?”

GLENN: RBG is an epic motion picture coming soon to a theatre near you.

Imagine if Fox News produced a documentary about a current Supreme Court Justice, like Neil Gorsuch. Seems like the kind of thing Fox News might do. But it would be slammed by the Left as totally partisan propaganda. A legitimate news network like CNN would never make propaganda like that. Remember? Facts first. Apples are apples and all that.

A documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. It’s titled RBG – get it? And who produced it? CNN. The news network describes Ginsburg as a “cultural icon.”

When has any conservative human ever been called a cultural icon?

At the premiere, the “Notorious R.B.G.,” which is the hip nickname her fans gave her, was introduced by Robert Redford. After a standing ovation from the crowd, which included CNN boss Jeff Zucker, Ginsburg was interviewed onstage.

It’s bad enough that a Supreme Court justice allows herself to be paraded like a popstar, rubbing elbows with Hollywood and CNN. But then the interview turned to the #MeToo movement. The crowd waited in hushed silence as Ginsburg recalled her own harassment as a Cornell student in the 1950s. She told of a chemistry professor who offered to give her a practice test, which she accepted. But when she showed up to take the real test the next day, it was the same “practice” test he’d already given her. “And I knew exactly what he wanted in return,” she said.

The crowd waited for the next part of the story. But that was it. No more story detail.

It’s very strange to hear a Supreme Court Justice, sit in front of an audience and convict her former professor of sexual harassment without sharing any additional evidence. In trying to support the #MeToo crowd, she accidentally illustrated the biggest pitfall of this movement – convicting people before they’re proven guilty.

That seems very wrong of a judge to do.

Ginsburg also forgot to acknowledge the #MeToo victims of the man who appointed her to the Supreme Court – Bill Clinton.

This is the problem with the radical Progressive agenda, not even a 25-year veteran of the Supreme Court can keep up with the inconsistencies. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase justice is blind.

The Journalist Who Schooled Brian Stelter on Woke Media | Batya Ungar-Sargon | Ep 125

Wokeness has taken over the American Left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the Left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, this week's guest included. Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joins Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness — on HIS OWN show. She reviews the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump Derangement Syndrome, why the Left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.

Did Jan. 6 & Ray Epps Expose a Corrupt FBI? | Darren Beattie | Ep 124

The events of January 6 have had constant attention from the mainstream media, yet so much about that day remains cloaked in mystery. So much just doesn't add up. It doesn't feel right. Darren Beattie wrote an article for www.Revolver.News titled "Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears to Have Led the Very First 1/6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol," which dives into some of the unexplainable issues surrounding that day. Who is Ray Epps? What was his role in the riot? Is it a coincidence that 1/6 is so eerily similar to the events involving Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer? How much did the feds know about the events? Did they know about the riot in advance and do nothing? Or, a more terrifying possibility, did they play a role in the riot? The more you poke around, the more it makes your head spin. Merrick Garland, the Oathkeepers, the FBI. Beattie wants to know all the answers. And Glenn wants to know, how did Beattie, a Duke professor, become the only non-tenured professor in the country to publicly support Trump ahead of the 2016 election, only to try his hand at uncovering what could be the biggest corruption story of our time?
