The Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett began today, and Sen. Lindsey Graham reminded the committee that the judge has already been through the vetting process with a bipartisan outcome.
CBS News seemed to think they were getting the best of Graham with this tweet:
Lindsey Graham says Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017 “with a bipartisan vote.”

They could have just said Graham correctly stated that vote was bipartisan, but it wasn’t going to happen:
This is just blatant partisan hackery https://t.co/h6k0gy7VHC

@CBSNews was clearly at least trying to insinuate that Graham was wrong, but he wasn’t:
This is what “bipartisan” means …. https://t.co/lOyCK7UpON

The MSM fact checkers will often twist themselves into pretzels rather than admit a Republican said something factual.

So then the vote was, in fact, bipartisan? This is comedy at this point. https://t.co/3t65RU7N2L

That’s what bipartisan means.
This tweet reads like some partisan hack wrote it, not a “news” organization. https://t.co/EmKjhl142B

It’s definitely not the own that whoever wrote CBS News’ tweet thought it was.
