NYPOST by Post Ed Board --
The hard left’s hopes of stopping Neil Gorsuch are looking ever more
sickly. If the best they can do is Wednesday’s pathetic New York Times
hit, Gorsuch will make it to the Supreme Court quite smoothly.
Under the ominous headline “Court Nominee Has Web of Ties To
Secretive Colorado Billionaire,” the Times story wrings its hands over
Gorsuch’s connections to Philip Anschutz — who’s so “secretive” that he
owns two major media properties as well as a piece of the LA Lakers and
the Staples Center, and has financed several major movies, including the
“Chronicles of Narnia” series.
Yes, notes David French at National Review, Anschutz is publicity-shy — but there’s nothing ominous about that.
As for those “ties”: Gorsuch, while at the DC law firm Kellogg Huber,
worked on several cases representing Anschutz, who’s based in his home
state. And he befriended a few Anschutz Co. executives, even buying a
40-acre vacation property with them.
