The Heat Is on for Nightline

By on 1.26.06 | 9:09AM

Federalist Society President Gene Meyer has written ABC News President David Westin over Nightline's factually shabby (okay, false) report on Justice Scalia's Colorado teaching trip, reports the Washington Times. (Read our post detailing the lame attack.)

It turns out that Nightline's producers knew that Scalia taught for ten hours and only played two hours of pick-up tennis. His course, for which he asked attending lawyers to read a 481-page book, counted as continuing education credits for the bar in 30 states.

The letter's here in pdf.

The more we learn about the Nightline report, the more apparent it is that Brian Ross and company attempted deliberately to mislead viewers.
