CNN’s Brian Stelter called out Justice Neil Gorsuch for going on “Fox & Friends” this morning to promote his book:
Justice Neil Gorsuch is on "Fox & Friends" right now. The Q: How is it appropriate for a Supreme Court justice to try to goose sales of his three-month-old book by chatting on one of the most partisan shows on TV?

Did any news outlet not cover it?
Justice Sotomayor at AJC Decatur Book Festival: "Congressman Lewis, you are one of my idols.
