MSNBC Bubble: ‘Everybody’ Thinks Hobby Lobby Ruling Was Bad

One hundred percent of MSNBC viewers early on Tuesday apparently disapproved of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case.

On Way Too Early on Tuesday, host Thomas Roberts wrapped up the show with a summary of a survey of viewers. According to Roberts, every single participant said they thought the Supreme Court ruled incorrectly in protecting religious freedom for private business owners.

Roberts added that health plans that provide Viagra but not contraception are “kind of a contradiction.”
