Or take the Los Angeles Times‘ David Savage, who argued just last week that the Supreme Court’s decisions under Chief Justice John Roberts ‘rely on well-established rights, such as freedom of speech and free exercise of religion, but extend those rights for the first time to corporations, wealthy donors and conservatives.’ Perhaps it’s just poorly written.

As James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal notes, ‘that is as ignorant as it is tendentious.’
