Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has publicly criticized presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. As the Washington Post demonstrated recently, Ginsburg has her share of mainstream media cheerleaders, and in reporting Trump’s response, even the Associated Press couldn’t avoid using the Left’s pet nickname for Ginsburg:
Donald Trump wants Notorious RBG to resign from Supreme Court for criticizing him as unfit to be president: https://t.co/rGKOWUCDVc

Et tu, Associated Press?
What is it with major news orgs using fanboi language in Ginsburg-related headlines? https://t.co/bUcRgyQl34

Embrace the objectivity!
@AP_Politics Notorious RBG? you're the goddamn Associated Press!

The left idolizes an elderly activist judge and smears a black conservative judge, all while accusing conservatives of politicizing SCOTUS.

Does AP also use admiring "edgy" nicknames for other justices, or…? https://t.co/5S6yiZy1Kz

This whole nickname thing has gone too far. It’s one thing for fanboys/girls, but for the headline of an AP story? https://t.co/nqfqbdjLMq

The Associated Press is referring to a Supreme Court Justice as "Notorious RBG."

So "Notorious RBG" is now in the style guide apparently. https://t.co/22qgQ7QGXl

If Ginsburg doesn’t feel obliged to hide her politics, why should these hacks? https://t.co/dOksMcdnKc
