Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Amy Coney Barrett said the Supreme Court is not 'a bunch of partisan hacks'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett defended the Supreme Court during a speech Sunday and expressed concerns about the public's perception of the court.

"My goal today is to convince you that this court is not comprised of a bunch of partisan hacks," Barrett said, according to USA Today. "Judicial philosophies are not the same as political parties."

Barrett was speaking at an event for the 30th anniversary of the University of Kentucky's McConnell Center, which was founded by Sen. Mitch McConnell, who introduced Barrett at the event.

Barrett, who was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2020 in a controversial confirmation, said justices must be "hyper vigilant to make sure they're not letting personal biases creep into their decisions, since judges are people, too," The Associated Press reported.

She also said the way the media covers the court and "hot takes on Twitter" contribute to the idea that the justices are making results-oriented decisions, rather than an interpretation of the law.
