Scalia: No Feud With John Roberts Over Health Care (VIDEO)


"You should not believe what you read about the court in the newspapers," he said. "Because the information has either been made up or given to the newspapers by somebody who is violating a confidence, which means that person is not reliable."

Morgan pressed him on his relationship with Roberts, in an exchange that appeared to make Scalia somewhat uneasy, but the conservative justice made no concession that the proceedings harmed their relationship in any way.

"Loud words exchanged?" Morgan asked.

"No," Scalia said.

"Slamming of doors, nothing like that?" the host pressed.

"Nothing like that," the justice responded.

"Best buddies?"

"My best buddy on the court is Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Has always been," Scalia said, adding that they remain close despite disagreeing on "just about everything."

Asked how he deals with losing a decision on the magnitude of 'Obamacare', the justice responded, "Probably mutter something under my breath or something."
