Another AP Misquote


An alert poster on Free Republic notes that the Associated Press–weeks after misquoting Rick Santorum on the issue of sodomy–has also misquoted Antonin Scalia on the same issue.

From the AP story: “The court has taken sides in the culture war,” Scalia said, adding that he has “nothing against homosexuals.”

Here is the real quote from Scalia: “Let me be clear that I have nothing against homosexuals, or any other group, promoting their agenda through normal democratic means.”
