@washingtonpost you are not a real newspaper. I am sorry.

The Washington Post’s Wonkblog could barely hide its glee at today’s SCOTUS ruling:
Notorious RBG smacks down a major abortion myth after historic SCOTUS ruling https://t.co/rBcWocEP9k
— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) June 27, 2016
Great headline, guys.
More from WaPo:
On Monday, the Supreme Court struck down a set of Texas restrictions that shuttered half the state’s abortion providers, and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg used her concurring opinion to blast a key argument for the state’s tighter regulations — that terminating a pregnancy in a clinic is dangerous.
Texas attorneys had pointed to Gosnell in their oral arguments before the court. But in her concurring opinion, Ginsburg wrote that it’s when regulations reduce access to abortions that women are more likely to turn to underground clinics that might resemble Gosnell’s practice.
“When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures,” she wrote in a concurring opinion, “women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners, faute de mieux, at great risk to their health and safety.”
And that’s the “Notorious RBG” bringing the smackdown, apparently.

Hey now. Gosnell was just a local crime story, remember? They have to focus their energy on what matters, i.e. a win for Team Abortion.
@washingtonpost Nice headline. The Vox-ification of what used to be a serious, important newspaper. All involved must be so proud…

@washingtonpost Notorious RBG? Smacks down? My God, how pitiful a once proud publication has become.

.@washingtonpost "Here's what you need to know." WPO has no pretense at objective unbiased journalism, exist to "smack down" honest dissent.
