Is the media trying to spin Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s diagnosis?
Earlier today, it was revealed Ginsburg recently completed three weeks of radiation treatment. The outpatient therapy began after doctors discovered a malignant tumor on Ginsburg’s pancreas. (CNBC.com)
“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” the court said.
Ginsburg, 86, has had several bouts of cancer and underwent surgery late last year to remove a growth from her lung.
After Ginsburg’s surgery in December, the Clinton-appointee missed the first oral arguments in her 25-year tenure. She returned to the bench in February.
The health of the liberal justice has become a matter of national concern because of the implications that her death or retirement could have on the partisan makeup of the nation’s most powerful judicial body.
