NYT Promotes Myth That Mormons “Tipped The Scale” On Prop 8 Passage

In trying to place the blame for California’s Prop 8, which bans gay marriage in California, on Mormons, the NYT completely ignores contrary evidence that it was the huge number of Obama voters in CA who really tipped the scale in passing the controversial measure. In particular, black voters in CA voted 70%-30% in favor of Prop 8.

You’d think what with the protests that have been sparked nationwide as a result of this vote, and the blame game being played by the protestors, that the NYT would at least try and get the basic facts of this story right … right?
