<p>Amidst their voluminous Super Tuesday 3 coverage, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> found just over two minutes to trot out the tired liberal argument that voter ID laws like the one in effect in North Carolina has a racist angle to it.</p>

<p>Anchor Scott Pelley set the scene from the start of the segment before correspondent Mark Strassamann took over by making it clear that it would be a left-leaning piece on the issue: <strong>&ldquo;In North Carolina, about 1,000 voters cast provisional ballots because they didn&#39;t have enough identification to meet the state&#39;s new, strict voter ID law. The law was passed even though voter fraud is almost unknown there. Opponents say the law is meant to silence minority voters.&rdquo;</strong></p>
