The ‘Tea Party boycott of Ebony magazine’ that wasn’t

Earlier today, Twitchy reported that the current issue of Ebony magazine features four different covers and a call to repeal Stand Your Ground laws.

Except, again, no:

We’re sure the party will keep going for some time, regardless of the facts.
