Carl Hulse has produced an engrossing take on America's judicial wars...essential reading...[Hulse] fills his book with interviews and history, which people readily share...Confirmation Bias...gets the story right, however disconcerting it may be. --The Guardian “A gripping tale of insider Washington with implications far beyond the capital and far beyond our own time. --Boston Globe The book is an absorbing, if dispiriting, look at the maneuverings of inside players like McConnell and Donald McGahn, Trump's first White House counsel, and outside advocates like Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society, who appears to have steered judicial selection as much as anyone at the White House. Hulse, a New York Times correspondent, probes moments of escalation over the years and the backroom machinations of the Trump strategy now transforming the courts and the law. Inevitably, he covers previously reported ground, but Confirmation Bias is an important guide at this crucial time for the stature of America's judiciary. --Washington Post
