During the May 27 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom, while co-host Bill Hemmer interviewed Wendy Long, counsel to the Judicial Confirmation Network, regarding Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Fox News featured a series of on-screen graphics noting that Sotomayor quoted Norman Thomas, a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, in her Princeton University yearbook. According to a graphic included in a slideshow released by the White House, in her "Princeton '76 yearbook page," Sotomayor quoted Thomas' statement, "I am not a champion of lost causes, but of causes not yet won." Neither Sotomayor's yearbook page nor Thomas was discussed during the segment.
