NPR got pushback from Twitter users after it reported Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) "continued his misleading assertion" Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson had been lenient on child porn offenders when he questioned her during her confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

Hawley noted during his line of questioning that Jackson not only gave lighter sentences to child porn offenders than what federal guidelines recommended but he also pointed out she gave lesser sentences than what prosecutors were asking for and what she said in relation to the cases:

"You said that this defendant, through whom you only sentenced to three months in prison...'Your collection at the time you that were caught was not actually as large as it seems'...You also told the defendant, 'This seems to be a case where you were fascinated by sexual images involving essentially what were your peers.'"

"Judge, he was 18. These kids are 8. I don't see in what sense they're peers," he added.
