Those of you who watch MSNBC (which would make you one of about 10 people, I think) might have caught Tucker Carlson bashing the ACLU last week. What wasn’t unusual was that he had his facts wrong about us. But what was unusual was that he actually corrected himself. I gotta give the man some credit.
Last week Carlson said the ACLU did not “stand up for” Rush Limbaugh while he was being investigated for allegations that he illegally obtained prescription painkillers. The truth was that the ACLU actually submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in Limbaugh’s defense and did a lot of press on the issue. For more see the Media Matters story.
