Why I Don't Subscribe and Only Read the Sports Pages

Looks like the L.A. Times is set to run a hit piece on Fred Thompson by linking him with a pro-abortion organization that he might have done some lobbying for back in 1991. This, of course, was before Thompson was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1994, where he accumulated a 100 percent voting record on life issues and was listed as an "enemy" by Planned Parenthood.

If the L.A. Times hit piece was a complaint in a lawsuit, it would be so demurred.
