<p>All too happy to give a hand to those opposed to religious freedom laws, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> continued to play its part in chastising those in favor of religious freedom and so-called bathroom bills with North Carolina&rsquo;s version being<strong> &ldquo;roiled by backlash, boycott threats, and bigotry allegations.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Following in the footsteps of prior editions of the newscast and <em>CBS This Morning</em> from hours earlier, anchor Scott Pelley introduced correspondent Mark Strassmann&rsquo;s piece this way: <strong>&ldquo;Tonight in North Carolina, they are facing a business boycott over a law that critics consider anti-gay. This week, Georgia&#39;s governor vetoed a similar bill, but North Carolina&#39;s governor is defending his new law.&rdquo;</strong></p>
