Bernstein Paints Nancy Reagan as ‘To Hell with’ ‘Right-Wing Shibboleth’ on Stem Cell Research

Appearing as a guest on CNN Friday afternoon to discuss the burial of former First Lady Nancy Reagan, CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein at one point characterized her position on stem cell research as “to hell with” the “Republican right-wing shibboleth that stem cell research was off limits for religious reasons.” Neither Bernstein nor host Brooke Baldwin made a distinction between research on adult stem cells — which Republicans like President George W. Bush were in favor of funding with tax dollars — and research using human embryos which Republicans generally opposed supporting with tax dollars.
