<p>In almost identical fashion to their hysteria concerning the defeat of transgender bathroom bill in Houston from November, Thursday&rsquo;s <em>CBS Evening News</em> painted quite the doomsday scenario for Georgia and North Carolina over their respective religious freedom bills as the newscast argued they could lead to massive boycotts and the loss of billions of dollars in business.</p>

<p>Anchor Scott Pelley set the tone in one of the show&rsquo;s opening teases by proclaiming that Hollywood was taking a stand for the LGBT community and<strong> &ldquo;threaten[ing] boycott the State of Georgia in defense of gay rights.&rdquo;</strong></p>
