[See NewsBusters for more.] Do you believe in free speech, but also believe it is not a wise strategy for businesses to stray out of their lane and identify with left-wing causes? If so, CBS's The Late Show host Stephen Colbert thinks you're a hypocrite.

Colbert used this argument, such as it was, on his Tuesday show where he helped spread some fake news about Sen. Mitch McConnell, "Leading the charge against these businesses is Senate minority leader and guy gleefully not holding the elevator for you, Mitch McConnell. McConnell threatened punitive legislative action against the protesting corporations, warning that if it continues, it would "Invite serious consequences."
