What Bias? Media Calls Supreme Court 7-2 Decision in Favor of Christian Baker a “Narrow Win”
On Monday the Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 vote in favor of Christian baker Jack Phillips.
The Supremes ruled Phillips had the right to refuse to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple.

The liberal media immediately went into spin mode.
The mainstream media called the 7-2 decision a “narrow win.”
The AP: BREAKING: Supreme Court rules narrowly for Colorado baker who wouldn’t make same-sex wedding cake.
NBC: In narrow ruling, Supreme Court gives victory to baker who refused to make cake for gay wedding
USA Today: Narrow Supreme Court ruling in favor of baker refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple did not resolve whether other opponents of same-sex marriage, such as florists and photographers, can refuse commercial wedding services to gay couples.
And the Human Rights Campaign.
BREAKING: #SCOTUS rules narrowly against Colorado Commission in #MasterpieceCakeshop case, but acknowledges the equal rights of #LGBTQ people to be free from the indignities of discrimination. Stand with us: say businesses should be #OpenToAll!

Donald Trump Jr. noticed the liberal bias.
I am reading about a 7 – 2 vote. Pretty sure that’s not narrowly… At least 2 dem leaning justices must have agreed. https://t.co/vOjX0mOHPf
