Clarence Thomas: I Hate the Media
My peeps!

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is no fan of the news media.

"One of the reasons I don't do media interviews is, in the past, the media often has its own script," he said in an interview with Business Week magazine. "The media, unfortunately, have been universally untrustworthy because they have their own notions of what I should think or I should do."

Thomas has been particularly upset by stories of how he ended up at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. According to the Los Angeles Times, Thomas says the common wisdom is that he was recruited for the school in 1968 as part of an affirmative action effort.

"That was the creation of the politicians, the people with a lot of mouth and nothing to say, and your industry," Thomas told Business Week. "Everything becomes affirmative action."

The real story, Thomas says, is that a nun suggested Holy Cross to him.

"That's how I wound up there," he said. "Your industry [the news media] has suggested that we were all recruited. That's a lie. Really, it's a lie. I don't mean a mistake. It's a lie.

"That thing that has astounded me over the years is that there has been such an effort to roll that class into people's notion of affirmative action," he continued. "You hear this junk. It's just not consistent with what really happened."
