NewsBusters' Lisa Fabrizio is reading way too much into an Associated Press article about Harriet Miers.
Fabrizio's Oct. 26 post is headlined "AP: Harriet Miers’ High School Too White." The words "too white" do not appear in the article at all. She adds:
If one were to follow the twisted logic of Matt Slagle and other AP writers (one of whom also found [John] Roberts too Catholic), the lack of a childhood tinged with racial controversy or “social turmoil” would somehow disqualify nominees from serving on the High Court.
Slagle offers no such "twisted logic" or makes any conclusions. He merely describes Miers' coming of age in a pre-desegregation Southern city and little else.
Of course, in that Aug. 3 Fabrizio post claiming the AP "found Roberts too Catholic," the AP article in question doesn't support that, either.
