We have so many Tea Party readers and followers. To lose all zero of them due to our September cover would be devastating.—

Earlier today, Twitchy reported that the current issue of Ebony magazine features four different covers and a call to repeal Stand Your Ground laws.
Somewhere along the way, a rumor started that the Tea Party had called for a boycott of Ebony.
One tweeter insinuated that Twitchy was the source:
Read the Twitchy post that’s linked and there is no call for a boycott of Ebony magazine. As a matter of fact, there has been no Tea Party call to boycott Ebony at all:
The article follows the trail of the rumor only to discover that the “boycott” is nonexistent.
Some are having a good time mocking the “Tea Party boycotting Ebony” false rumor, but it’s still a false rumor, albeit one that won’t go away:
I am still 'Wow' at the Tea-party 'boycott' of EBONY. Are they trying to win an award for most farcical 'causes'?—

Except, again, no:
So some liberals were LOL'ing about the Tea Party boycott of Ebony mag over its Travon cover. Oh, except turns out >>> no such boycott—

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