Gorsuch attacked by NPR over mask mandate that never existed in the first place

The Supreme Court is making headlines over issues not directly related to case decisions, as the American public expects. Instead, thanks to misinformation spread, in part, by NPR, SCOTUS is forced to deal with an issue that really isn’t an issue at all.

It began when an NPR hack reported on the current debacle concerning Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s refusal to show up for work at the Supreme Court building because of Justice Neil Gorsuch’s refusal to wear a mask.

The outlet went on to create a narrative that Gorsuch was not only refusing to wear a mask, he was refusing a direct order from his boss, Chief Justice John Roberts, who the outlet claimed ordered his associate justices to be masked at all times. The only problem? It was made-up, as Roberts never ordered such a mandate.

Here’s one of the original tweets that showed a snippet from the original NRP story, which was full of misinformation, and clearly stated that Roberts had ordered everyone to “mask up.”

Mike Davis responded to that tweet, confirming again that no such mandate was ordered by the chief.

“Fact Check: 100% False. The Chief never asked his colleagues to mask up, for any reason. Mark Joseph Stern’s spouse works in the Supreme Court press office. So he knows — or should know — that he’s spreading misinformation,” Davis tweeted.

NPR, and Sotomayor (again) did their best to attempt to spread more COVID mask hysteria, but once again, it failed.
