Randall Beck needs to take off his blinders. It might help if the guy read some of the legal arguments in the Wigg case (even her legal counsel say this was a first-of-its kind case) or had some reasonable familiarity with First Amendment law and the facts.
Undoubtedly, the Argus-Leader believes its coverage of this case establishes is a shining example of modern journalism. Seems odd, then, that the Argus has never mentioned that, before going on the bench as a Bush appointee, the author of the court of appeals decision (PDF file) worked for and served as an officer of the Rutherford Institute. Of course, the public probably has no interest in knowing that entity previously represented other chapters of the “club” for which Wigg teaches and advocates the position taken by Wigg in the lawsuit.
