Here is the first part of CNBC’s latest “news report” about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Please read it, and see how it fares on your BS meter:
- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will miss a second week of oral arguments as she continues to recover from cancer surgery she underwent last month, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday.
- But Ginsburg’s recovery is on track, there is no evidence of remaining cancer in her body and no further treatment is planned.
Do you believe this? Seriously?
-First the news was that her cancer surgery went fine and she was rarin’ to get back to work.
-Then she missed a day of oral arguments, but we were told she was fine, just working at home pursuant to heading back to the court.
-Then she missed another day of oral arguments. And another.
-Now, after missing a full week, we are told she is going to miss a second week.
-But, we are told, she’s just fine, and her recovery is “on track”.
Is it just me, or shouldn’t that end with “And the cow jumped over the moon”?
I don’t know, of course. But, at this point, I would not be surprised if Ms. Ginsburg has seen her last day on the Supreme Court.
The watch continues….
