ABC News is under fire for a story in which it characterizes the Alliance Defending Freedom as “an alleged hate group.”
Click the above links, and you can read my GetReligion colleague Mark Kellner’s excellent recent commentary on the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling certain conservative organizations as “hate groups.”
Kellner rightly asked: “Here’s a proactive journalistic question: Does expressing one’s faith and beliefs always and without exception equal hate?”
Apparently, ABC didn’t get the memo.
So we end up with this headline today:
Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ but DOJ won’t release his remarks
