Even though the Supreme Court voted 6-2 to uphold Michigan's ban on affirmative action, New York Times's Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak led off his lead story in Wednesday's paper with Justice Sonia Sotomayor's dissent, the "most passionate and most significant dissent of her career."

Liptak also promoted liberal ex-Justice John Paul Steven's tirade against money in politics in a Tuesday interview, with the reporter lamenting that the Citizens United case -- in which the Court made the pro-free-speech ruling that government can't ban election spending by corporations -- had become "a judicial landmark."
