ABC News ran an editorial, "Anti-LDS Slurs in Washington," about the recent selection of Michael Young as the new president of the University of Washington.
Some of the comments were predictable: The Church of Latter Day Saints supports polygamy, excludes blacks, and is anti-gay; anyone who is religious shouldn't be in charge of an institution of higher learning.
Of course, none of the allegations are true — Mormons have outlawed polygamy, allowed African Americans to hold the priesthood and have accepted gays but don't advocate for gay marriage, a position that most Christian groups share.
