Will Chamberlain shared screenshots of CNN’s reporting of the historic vote and wrote “You can always count on CNN and MSNBC to take a calm, measured, restrainedHAHAHAHAHAHAHA just kidding.”

In one of the screenshots, you can see the facial expressions of Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and others.
The Chryon reads “Senate votes 52 to 48 to confirm Barrett to Supreme Court; WH to host swearing-in even after last superspreader event.”
Here is another shot.
In a separate screenshot of MSNBC’s coverage of Barrett’s confirmation, the Chryon reads “The corrupt deal made by Republicans.”
In another Chryon, MSNBC had “Republicans celebrate conservative Judges as thousands die.”
