Today the Senate Judiciary Committee had opening statements from senators and the SCOTUS nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. You might have seen some or all of it on any of a number of media outlets, except perhaps CNN. Jeff Greenfield wanted to know why CNN didn’t find today’s hearing to be a high priority:
CNN is not carrying the Barrett hearings…have they said why not?

Judiciary Committee member, Sen. Ted Cruz, was happy to provide a possibility:
Presumably, they’re worried voters will be impressed by Judge Barrett. https://t.co/aXDm93qnJt

That’s the most likely explanation.
