MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow assured her viewers at the time that “judges can be blocked on an up-or-down vote, a majority vote, like always. But they cannot be blocked anymore by just a minority of votes… Republicans cannot force that anymore.”
MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes similarly hailed the Democrat party move as “an affirmative win for democracy.”
Al Sharpton said “Democrats took the bold step of changing Senate rules, scaling back the filibuster that Republicans have unfairly used…”
CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill said Republicans should have taken the Senate back if the party wanted to preserve the filibuster. “That’s what happens when Republicans lose elections, but they’re not accepting the consequences.”
And again, the liberal media speaks from both sides of their mouths.
