Gorsuch’s Fox News Appearance Draws Complaints from CNN’s Brian Stelter

CNN host Brian Stelter complained about Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch appearing on the Fox News “Fox and Friends” to talk about his new book and other subjects, as The Daily Caller reports.

Stelter accused Justice Gorsuch of trying “goose sales of his three-month-old book,” and also referred to “Fox and Friends” as “one of the most partisan shows on TV” in a tweet on Tuesday.

Gorsuch’s new book is called “A Republic, If You Can Keep It.” In the interview, he further elaborated on his originalist judicial philosophy, and why it is important to interpret the Constitution as it was written, rather than retroactively trying to change its meaning as liberal justices do so often.

“The idea of originalism,” Justice Gorsuch explained, “is just simply that judges should follow the original meaning of the words on the page and neither add things that aren’t there nor take away things that are there.”
