Critics blasted ABC News’ “Nightline” on Twitter Monday night for claiming reporter Terry Moran was reporting on President Trump’s “controversial Supreme Court Justice pick and the possible implications for the country,” well before Trump announced the nominee.

Sen. Orin Hatches office quickly tweeted out a response:
The President hasn't even named a nominee yet so it's very interesting to report them as "controversial." https://t.co/LwEtUzkU0h
So did several conservative journalists:
ABC News has already labeled Trump's Supreme Court nominee as "controversial."
The pick has not been announced, and they don't even know who it is.https://t.co/bmKG1vNj2ipic.twitter.com/R7SwOEwwgF
Unannounced Supreme Court pick already branded "controversial" https://t.co/GmIi4TJpo6
You don't know who the pick is and he/she is already "controversial?" https://t.co/NnYFcpN1ol
UPDATE: ABC News has issued a correction:
CORRECTION: Tonight on Nightline, @TerryMoran reports on the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court Justice pick and the possible implications for the country. https://t.co/3Jir9exzXL...
