NY Times Seeks Dirt on Judge Roberts' Adoptions - For the Children?

The "New York Times", so desperate to derail the confirmation of a (gasp) conservative Supreme Court appointee, has now lowered itself to investigating the adoption of the two children by John Roberts and his wife. Surely, there is something sinister or illegal in these actions of Roberts and maybe it indicates that he opposes abortion because he adopts unwanted children. It could be!

This recent flash from the Drudge Report provides more information:




The DRUDGE REPORT has uncovered a plot in the NEW YORK TIMES' newsroom to look into the adoption records of the children of Supreme Court Nominee John G. Roberts.

The TIMES has investigative reporter Glen Justice hot on the case to investigate adoption records of Judge Roberts’ two young children, Josie age 5 and Jack age 4, a top source reveals.

Judge Roberts and his wife Jane adopted the children when they each were infants.

Both children were adopted from Latin America.

A TIMES insider claims the look into the adoptions are part of the paper's 'standard background check.'

Roberts’ young son Jack delighted millions of Americans during his father’s Supreme Court nomination announcement ceremony when he wouldn’t stop dancing while the President and his father spoke to a national television audience.

Previously the WASHINGTON POST Style section had published a story criticizing the outfits Josie’s and Jack’s mother had them wear at the announcement ceremony.

One top Washington official with knowledge of the NEW YORK TIMES’ plans declared: 'Trying to pry into the lives of the Roberts’ family like this is despicable. Children’s lives should be off limits. The TIMES is putting politics over fundamental decency.'

One top Republican official when told of the situation was incredulous. 'This can’t possibly be true?'


Of course, liberals claim there is no media bias, but I suspect, with good reason, that the "NY Times" would come out with headlines condemning any conservative group doing the exact same thing to a liberal judicial appointee--which is hypothetical because conservatives have more class than that. But, since the "NY Times" views conservatives as evil, maybe they are looking into the adoptions by Roberts for the "cause of causes for Democrats"--it's for the children. Excuse me for being skeptical.

I do not see a problem with investigating HOW Judge Roberts' children were adopted, in the unusual event that there were inappropriate means used to complete the adoption. I definitely agree that the lives of the children themselves are outside of the scope of what should be snooped into, but the means used to adopt the children in the first place are quite fair game

Bret, normally I would with you and your logic is sound. However, I believe that it is impossible to separate the "how" from the children themselves. Unless there was specific information about improprieties, this is nothing more than a witchhunt which could be terribly harmful to the kids. There is a reason that adoption records are sealed, and it is wrong to try to open them. You even said that it would be unusual, and that's true given the checks and balances within the process. Shouldn't the NYT concentrate on relevant judicial issues rather than trying to dig up dirt on a personal level? Also, I guarantee you that they would not do this to a liberal judge and would be indignant if anyone else tried.
