On The Daily Show, Ms. Maddow calls Justice Scalia a ‘racist troll’ for calling a part of the Voting Rights Act a “racial entitlement” during a recent hearing on a case that wants to end the federal government oversight of the law. Signed in 1965 by President L. Johnson, the Voting Rights Act requires several states and counties with a history of racial discrimination to clear election-related changes with the federal government.

While Justice Scalia was simply arguing that states should longer need to get the federal government’s approval to make changes to their voting laws, Ms. Maddow resorts to name calling with a charge of racism.

This is blatantly dishonest.
