The Snotty Leftist Advocacy Masquerading as Journalism Award

This week's award goes to the anonymous toiler for the Press Telegram who penned the following lead sentence in the "Briefcase" column:

A coalition of groups that oppose civil rights for gay people is pressing a boycott of the Ford Motor Co., the latest push by religious convservatives to influence how and where companies advertise.

Ah, yes. Opposing civil rights for gays. Shorthand for the well-known plan to deprive gays of their right to vote. And then without doubt the ones who aren't driving Fords will be seated in the back of the bus.
